Everyday Champion Makenzie Loves GK Sparkle

Everyday champion, Makenzie, from Arizona just turned 8 years old and couldn't wait to try on her birthday gift, a brand new GK leotard with workout shorts! While practicing at Rhythm & Motion Dance Center in Arizona, Makenzie looks forward to doing splits and practicing her routines for competition. In addition to dancing and tumbling, she also enjoys performing as a cheerleading mascot for her father's football team at Red Mountain High School. Makenzie works hard on her tumbling and flexibility so she can someday join the varsity cheer squad.

The Shimmering Purple Workout Leotard 3710 that she eagerly accepted and changed into 3 hours before practice is a shimmering Lavender Ice Mystique garment with Imperial Purple zig-zag trim design and Purple Sequinz scattered across the right side. Makenzie recommends it because it "sparkles everywhere." According to Makenzie, there's no leotard brand that shines quite like GK. We love the way this beautiful purple leotard fits Makenzie so well, not to mention the smile it put on her face. It relates perfectly with her White Sparkle Cheer Shorts CB509 with a turned up hem and elastic waistband for maximum comfort. These shorts are a great accessory to add your team logo on with either jewels, sequinz, imprinting or embroidery, but they're also perfect on Makenzie as is.

Thanks for sharing your birthday photo with us, Makenzie!

Fun Times and GK Leotards at the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational

Kalon Ludvigson had a fabulous turnout this year at his annual Invitational where athletes had an opportunity to meet with Kalon for the first time since his injury in August. Prior to the event, we briefly recapped Kalon's life and his accomplishments. You can read about them at GK is Proud to Sponsor the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational. If you are interested in helping Kalon with his recovery, he is still accepting donations from The Kalon Ludvigson Fund to offset the cost of his treatments and necessary equipment.

What we saw this year at the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational was an amazing rally of support for a friend, peer and hero. The gymnastics meet that began its tradition 4 years ago by an athlete who is adored by many for his talent, comradery and good looks is now an event to support that same athlete that we have come to love over the course of his career. This year, the event attracted professional and aspiring gymnasts alike from across the country. For fans, this meant that Salt Lake City was the place to be. Below you'll see many familiar faces, alongside of Kalon, meeting with fans.

Attire on the mats varied from sparkly tank leotards to formal long sleeve competition leotards. Both of the styles represented below are stocked by GK for immediate purchase. The Gypsy Flyers from Gleason's in Minnesota are wearing a Mystique Low Scoop Neck Leotard 3619 with their team logo added to the front. This beautiful Electric Turquoise color looks great on everyone, and the design offers an athletic and supportive square back that the girls love.

The Northern Star Bounders look fantastic in their Classic Leotard With Bold Design 5838ST. This is a stock leotard that can be purchased as is in Red and Black Mystique with White Sparkle Hologram design outlines and Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS highlights. However, if you love the style and want to add your own personal touch to the design, it's also customizable! Jewels, stock or custom, sequinz, applique embroidery or imprinting all leave their mark on this competitive leotard in a creative, unique way. The Northern Star Bounders men blend nicely with the group, competing in Under Armour Force 6001. Made by GK, the Red and Black Nylon/Spandex and Red Techmesh in this men's gymnastics competition shirt features the same shades as the ladies' Red and Black Mystique, without the sparkle. The design, available in both mens and kids sizes, looks great on the male gymnasts. It's paired with a UA In Stock Men's Gymnastics Short 6003 in Red. All of the Kalon Invite athletes from Northern Star Bounders look fabulous!

We enjoyed taking part in the 2014 Kalon Ludvigson Invitational, and look forward to seeing Kalon's recovery progress next year. That begs the question, what will you wear for the 5th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitation? Will you compete in an in stock leotard, men's GK competition or UA Competition Shirt, or will you take the plunge and Special Order your competitive team wear? Either way, we look forward to seeing all of our GK Champions enjoying their sport.

La Fleurs Gymnasts Shine in Their Own Colors of GK Leotards

La Fleurs Gymnastics from Germantown, WI looked phenomenal at the Tim Rand Invitational in February! They all wore the same GK competition leotard, but coaches mixed it up a bit by allowing the girls to choose the color that best fits their personalities. The choice to do so was brilliant, and the La Fleur gymnasts look amazing in their colorful ensembles.

All of the ladies from La Fleurs wore a Vibrant Sweetheart Gymnastics Leotard 7561 in a shimmering Black Mystique fabric with Black Slither Hologram on the upper body and sleeves. Slither Hologram is a fabric choice that catches light just as well as mystique, but it also adds texture and a dimension to the leotards that is both unique and interesting. It's a great choice as a substitute for mesh, especially if you're looking for a durable, textured fabric. The neatest element of La Fleur's Vibrant Sweetheart Gymnastics Leo is their choice of colors for the appliqued design. All of the leos feature primary style lines in White Opalescence Hologram and both heat transferred and hand set Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  Then each athlete chose their own mystique accent to finish the look. From left to right, the color selections represented in the photograph are Electric Turquoise Mystique, Sunshine Mystique and Berry Mystique. Together, the gymnasts look like a fun and colorful team. We love it!

All of our Special Order competition leotards offer the opportunity to order the same leotard style for your entire team, and to distinguish individual gymnasts, skill level groups or gym locations (if you come from a multi-facility gym) by differentiating just one element of the design. The diversity is a lot of fun, and the group still looks like a team. It's also an incredible way to get your gymnasts involved in the design of their leotard and to make them feel like champions.

She trains at Gymnastics Center Harpener Heide to compete with the best, perform her best and to be the best. During her competition at WTB-Landescup, Madeleine chose to portray this feeling of greatness by wearing a brand that gives her a great fit, superior comfort, and a professional leotard design, GK.

Stars From the Winter Cup Compete in GK Men's Competition Shirts

This year's Winter Cup in Las Vegas, a district qualifier to the P&G Championships, turned out to be a nice reunion for GK, and sales representative, Calli Campo, as we caught up with several of our GK Catalog models and USA Gymnastics National Team members. Cover model, Brandon Wynn, showed up to perform a stunning and winning performance on the rings. After his seemingly effortless routine, he was gracious enough to pose for a photo with a signed copy of the GK Competitive catalog, featuring Wynn in GK Men's Gymnastics Competition Shirt 1971. In addition, fellow National Team member, Donnell Whitenburg, who was welcomed to the Senior National Team at the conclusion of the Winter Cup, stopped by to chat with us as well (pictured below with Wynn).

We always look forward to seeing GK model and National Team member, John Orozco, who, by the way, tied for second place in the All-Around. Falling behind by only half a tenth of a point, Orozco and friend, Joshua Dixon enjoyed their day none-the-less. Dixon was all smiles after winning the Bronze Medal on the vault, and earning his place on the Men's Senior National Team. Both looked great in their Under Armour shirts! Finally, the event wouldn't have come together quite as seamlessly without Director, former Buckeye gymnast, and GK Model, Kerry Adderly!

Be sure to check out these athletes on our website when you shop our Men's In Stock Competition Shirts and Men's Compression Shirts. And remember, they could be at your next event in Under Armour gymnastics apparel by GK.

New Jersey State Championships Decorated with GK and Under Armour Leotards

The floor of the New Jersey Level 8, 9 and 10 State Gymnastics Championships was a glowing display for GK last weekend! SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS lit up the floor on an array of teams wearing various GK styles. We're undecided as to which style was our favorite, so we'll let you be the judge.

www.gkelite.com/Bright Stars Gymnastics of Egg Harbor Township, NJ competed in our Dramatic Intersecting Competition Leotard 3532. They special ordered this eye-catching competition leo to include swirling design lines of White Sparkle Hologram and Sunshine Mystique on top of their shimmering Cherry Mystique competition garment. They adjusted the sleeves to a 3/4 length and added Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS to the cuffs, left sleeve and the White Hologram swirling line design, in addition to the small logo to insure a sparkling routine. We especially love that they paired their GK Leo with matching, bright orange shoes. 

Competitors from Randolph Gymnastics of Randolph, NJ were beautiful and feminine in their special order design of our Cascading Ribbon Gymnastics Leotard 7557. This is a faux sweetheart style, somewhat in disguise. The Violet Slither lower body and and Black Mesh upper body is overlapped with an edgy ribbon pattern in Seaglass Sparkle Hologram and an abundance of Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS along the neckline and over the ribbon detail for a mystical look. The combination works well together, and we adore the look.  

The Classic Sweetheart Competition Leotard 7545 looked very regal on Action Gymnastics from Howell, NJ. Their Berry Mystique upper body and arms are lined with Black Mesh and adorned with Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS all around, creating a deep and shimmering color. Its the perfect topping to their Black Mystique Lower body, frosted around the cuffs and sweetheart top with heavily packed, Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. Together, the details selected so carefully by Action Gymnastics, delivered a spectacular look, and Action was proud to show it off.

Our Under Armour Collection of competition leotards also offers a sweetheart style, and Rebound Gymnastics, from Marlboro, NJ wears it well. Their Under Armour Elegance 6701 is a style inspired by the National Team leotard worn at the 2013 Jesolo Trophy. Sewn with Seaglass Sparkle Hologram fabric, this shimmering silhouette offers a contrasting, Black Slither, with Black Mesh lining on the shoulders and arms. Its featured faux halter style lines in heat transferred packed Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS compliments the style and looks fabulous with Rebound's custom Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that embellishment the sleeves with curvy leaf shapes, sparkling cuffs and their name, Rebound, scripted along the arm. What a gorgeous combo!

The next time you see a leotard style that you love, look it up on our Special Order Design Studio and make it your own by selecting your preference of fabrics, colors and jewels. For assistance, many of these featured teams contacted our New Jersey Sales Representative, Colleen Patton, to bring their design together. Your local GK Representative is happy to share their expertise in fit, style and design to give you a leotard that's fit for champions.

Harlem Invitational Proudly Sponsored by GK Gymnastics Leotards

Throughout our 30+ years of service to gymnasts worldwide, GK has proudly donated, and continues to donate, millions of dollars in leotards and gymnastics accessories to the industry. This dedication to give back is not one that we take lightly. It is twofold a responsibility and an honor, for without organizations such as USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics, TOPS, East/West Championships, and smaller organization such as the Wendy Hilliard Foundation, the sport that we dedicate our lives to day in and day out would cease to exist, and so would we.

Harlem Gymnastic's Purple GK LeotardHarlem Gymast in GK Leotard for Wendy Hilliard Foundation

One of our most recent and prized contributions to gymnastics went to a Hall of Fame Rhythmic Gymnast named Wendy Hilliard. Wendy operates a not for profit gym, The Wendy Hilliard Foundation “WHF”, that provides free weekly gymnastics classes to New York inner city youth. Their website states, "As the first African-American to represent the U.S. in rhythmic gymnastics, Wendy Hilliard's goal was to create a program that provided an opportunity for more minorities to experience her sport. After serving over 10,000 participants the Wendy Hilliard Foundation has established an incredible track record of providing quality programming for people of all ages and abilities in the sport of gymnastics." She has even taken her athletes to the Junior Olympic National Championships, where they consistently won top honors and earned first place finishes. The WHF lady gymnasts are pictured above with GK Business Development Specialist, Erin Gettle.

This year, GK designed and donated a beautiful Imperial Purple Mystique 3/4 Sleeve Gymnastics Leotard 3457 to Wendy Hilliard's Harlem gymnasts. These leos, adorned with Silver Hologram Sequinz in a lively floral pattern, united the team at their own Harlem Invitational, where athletes competed in Rhythmic Gymnastics, Artistic Gymnastics and Trampoline and Tumbling. Most of the competing teams came from New York, but Harlem was also able to pull in some teams from New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts for this well-organized and well-received event.

The WHF guys wore a White Nylon/Spandex Wrap Around Men's Gymnastics Competition Shirt 1853 with Black and Purple Nylon/Spandex style lines along the shoulders and under the arms, and an over-sized Harlem Invitational embroidered logo on the front. Our men's competition shirts feature a boy cut leg for maximum comfort and support. GK also supplied the Harlem boys with a Men's Gymnastics Long Short 1818, in Black Nylon/Spandex.

As you can see from the photos above, the day wasn't all work and competition. It was also a celebration, of sorts, where the community gathered to honor all of the young gymnasts, their dedication and achievements, and to enjoy the day. The day was made possible through sponsorship from GK, TD Bank, Premier Physical Therapy & Wellness, Whole Foods and Aquafina. Each sponsor had something different to contribute. Thanks to Whole Foods, the coaches and judges enjoyed a delicious lunch, and many of the adults took advantage of Massage by Marta. Best of all, admission was free. The Wendy Hilliard Foundation ended the event with a 2 hour showcase of different groups from their organization putting on group and individual special performances.

If you missed the Harlem Invitational this year, it's definitely worth marking your calendar for 2015. Until then, you can be proud to shop the brand that supports all facets of gymnastics, GK.

GK is proud to sponsor the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational in Salt Lake City, UT this weekend, in support of Kalon Ludvigson, one of our GK Gymnastics catalog models, and the most decorated Trampoline and Tumbling athlete in the world. The meet will incorporate all levels of competition in Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini Trampoline.

Kalon began his gymnastics career at the age of 8, and in just 10 years time, earned his first US National Championship title in Trampoline and Tumbling in 2006. He defended this title for the next seven years, while also earning 20 World Cup and World Championship medals and setting 2 world records. Then, in August 2013 after winning his final US National Championship, a neck injury during training left him paralyzed below his chest. Since his accident, Kalon's treatments and strength-training has kept him out of the public eye... until now. 

This year's Kalon Ludvigson Invitational is going to be absolutely amazing! It will be Kalon's first public appearance since his accident, and his friends, fans and teammates are rallying to support him at this special gymnastics meet. Because of Kalon's superior standing in the gymnastics industry, we're going to see a lot of 2012 World Champion Team members and finalists, as well as World Age Group Champions and former Olympians, many of them competing at the meet. All of these gymnasts are eager to support Kalon, who by the way, was just nominated as the T&T Representative for the USA Gymnastics Athletes Council.

As part of a fundraiser for Kalon's medical costs, fans purchased Keep Calm and Pray for Kalon t-shirts, that they will wear during the final events on Saturday. This supportive gesture should be an amazing and emotional gift of inspiration for Kalon! If you'd like to help offset the costs of Kalon's medical bills, contributions are being collected through The Kalon Ludvigson Fund.

So what part does GK play in this event? All of the organizing staff at the Kalon Ludvigson Invitational will wear a black and white warm-up jacket and warm-up pant from GK. The female staff will look polished and comfortable in a GK Women's Woven Warm-Up Jacket with Piping L1043 and a Women's Woven Black Pant L1046. The Male staff will wear Men's Woven Warm-Up Jacket with Piping L1042 and Men's Gymnastics Warm-Up Pants L1045. Both men's and women's warm-up jackets are White Polyester with Black style lines under the arms and on the shoulders and our classic GK logo on both the back and the right chest. The Kalon Ludvigson Invitational logo is embroidered on the left. Paired with the relaxed fit pant, this gymnastics warm-up combo will look terrific on the men and women helping out at this trampoline and tumbling event on Saturday.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our GK booth on Saturday to support a fellow champion, Kalon Ludvigson, who has given all of us so much to aspire to already.

GK Sales Representative Supports Aim High Academy

Here's a shout-out to our Sales Representative, June Blackman, and the organization that she recently assisted, Aim High Academy, for their efforts to give underprivileged children an opportunity to experience the sport of gymnastics. Founder and Executive Director of Aim High Gymnastics, Jennifer Patterson, sent GK this wonderful note about June, saying,

"I was writing to inform you of a marvelous gesture June Blackman performed for Aim High Academy. We are a non-profit gymnastics program for underprivileged children. We serve over 250 children. We hosted our first gymnastics meet on Jan. 18th in Tulsa, OK. We called it the Dream Meet and ran it in conjunction with MLK Jr. Weekend. It was a great success! We ran a wonderful meet and raised quite a bit of money for Aim High.

One way we raised money was through a raffle. June donated a beautiful leotard out of the Brilliance Collection to the cause. We were able to sell about 700 raffle tickets throughout the day."

The GK Ultimate Brilliance leotard pictured above is our Independent SWAROVSKI Leotard 1001. This Silver Mystique, long sleeve leo is a perfect addition to the Dream Meet. Featuring 3,300 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS in various colors, including Sapphire Blue, Ruby, Navy and Clear, this $480 leo represents the stars of our gymnastics industry, and the bright futures of our gymnastics athletes. Visit our entire collection of Ultimate Brilliance leotards for more dazzling styles adorned with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

We love seeing world renowned gymnasts wearing Under Amour in practice! Victoria Moors is a 2012 Canadian Olympian who practices in Under Armour at Canada's #1 Gymnastics Club, Dynamo Gymnastics. 

Our Under Armour Tank Leotards are a collection of understated, sporty designs that blend GK's expertise in gymnastics with Under Armour's mission, "to make all athletes better through passion, design and the relentless pursuit of innovation." The current All-Around Elite Canadian Champion, Victoria Moors, is pictured to the left practicing in UA Dedication 6307. This elegant Under Armour tank leo fuses the GK 4-way stretch, shimmering Black Mystique fabric with beautiful Passion Mystique accents of curvaceous piping along the torso, and simple, bold style lines below the shoulder blades. It's the perfect combination of athleticism and femininity, and it looks phenomenal on Victoria!
