Everyday Champion: Erin M.

Everyday Champion Erin M. trains at San Mateo Gymnastics in Belmont, California.  She was the JO National Champion on beam in 2012 in JR C.  Erin is currently a Level 10 gymnast, but her dream is to qualify as an Elite. 

Erin M. said, "I needed a gymnastics leotard for the Elite Qualifier at the Gliders Invitational this past February in Ontario, California.  I chose GK because they are the best in style, fit, design, and quality. I chose this particular style for its simplicity and elegance.  I worked with Holly Thomas, our GK Sales Representative, and my coaches Oksana Bystrova and Armen Astoian to get the perfect design and colors.  Holly showed me all the colors and how they would look together.  Oksana and Armen helped me pick the Swarovski crystals and where to place them to get the best effect.  It was a team effort to get the perfect gymnastics leotard.  When we received the finished leotard from GK, it was everything I thought it would be! The crystals sparkled with such brilliance and it shined from all directions in the light.  It is my favorite GK gymnastics leotard because of its sophistication and elegance." 

Erin started with GK's Sleek Sweetheart Gymnastic Leotard Style 7547 from our 2012 Special Order Competitive Catalog.  It is a classic competitive gymnastics leotard with sleek style lines throughout bodice, back and sleeve, featuring a v-neck and v-back.  Erin chose Charcoal Mystique fabric and Black Mesh sleeves with Gold Leaf underlining.  As she stated above, the leotard was perfected with with strategically placed SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS for optimum sparkle. 

Erin was also one of the models in the GK Fashion Show at the National Congress & Trade Show.  Here she looks beautiful in GK's Dual Star Design Gymnastics Leotard 7548A02, a v-neck competitive gymnastics leotard featuring a shining star pattern on bodice and scoop back with v-strap, shown here in Black Nylon/Spandex, Sangria Mystique, and Lemon Lime Mystique with Metallic Silver SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  Erin's second look is GK's Waterfall Gymnastics Leotard 4865, a classic competitive gymnastics leotard with cool side waterfall design and scoop back, shown here in Berry Mystique, Orangeade Sparkle, Sunshine Mystique, and Black Mystique with Mango SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

Everyday Champion: Abby P.

GK Everyday Champion Abby P. is a Level 8 Gymnast who trains at Flytz Gymnastics in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  She was the 2012 Level 7 State Champion on Floor Exercise, 3rd on Vault, 3rd on Beam, and 3rd All Around. She lives, breathes, and dreams about gymnastics all the time.  She is also a cheerleader and a great student!  As part of a class assignment, Abby wrote to local GK Sales Representative, Lori Johnson, to tell her how much she likes GK gymnastics leotards.  She provided some fantastically descriptive marketing copy that we just had to share.  Check out what Abby had to say about GK gymnastics leotards.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

Hello, I am Abby.  I am 13 years old and am interested in one of your products.  I am writing to you about your GK leotards.  I like this product for so many reasons, but I chose three favorites.  I enjoy your leotards because they are comfortable, designed great, and very durable.

The leotards your company makes are great because they do not shrink or get too tight.  The material is very nice, soft, and easy to move around in.  I would and have recommended this product because of its great quality.  I own many of these leotards and practice in them for long hours, but have not yet encountered or noticed any scratching or something that bothers me during my practice.  Like I said, I practice in these leotards for long hours into the evening, and feel very comfortable in the fabric. 

The next reason I adore your leotards is because of the nice and elegant designs.  The colors always coordinate and look great on all ages.  I, along with many other gymnasts, wear the exotic and beautiful designs.  The diamonds on the leotards never come off when I am practicing.  My favorite designs to chose from are the prints.  I love that there are so many different varieties of designs for all different personalities and people.

The final reason I like your leotards is because they are very durable.  I have had so many GK leotards for quite some time.  They have stretched, been washed over and over, and still fit me because they are so well made.  I have never had a leotard from your company tear or come unstitched.  I love these leotards because they can be passed down through many generations and still last for a long time.

As you can see, many gymnasts love the product your company produces and markets.  I am one of the biggest fans of this product because it is so comfortable, designed greatly, and is durable.  I think this product is the best in the industry and will keep going far in the world of gymnastics.  Thank you so much for selling these wonderful leotards!

Sincerely,

 

Thank you so much Abby for making our day!  We couldn't have said it better ourselves. We love hearing from our customers. You make GK look beautiful and we are happy to hear our products perform as well as they look.

Holly resides in Ripon, California with her husband, who is also a teacher, and their two children, Jacob and Paige.  Holly has recently retired from coaching, but continues to judge when not representing GK at gymnastics meets.

GK's Global Presence Gathers in Reading, Pennsylvania

GK's Reading, Pennsylvania headquarters hosted its annual International Distributor Conference last week with 25 global GK reps in attendance.  The conference kicked off with a lively welcome dinner followed by two full days of educational, informative, and inspiring interchange among the participants.  Our international guests toured the GK facility, viewed new and exciting products, and received training toward their success in their home countries.  Awards were also bestowed for select sales accomplishments and years of service milestones.

GK's international distributor program started with our presence at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, when Lilia Podkopayeva of Ukraine, the Women's All Around Gold Medalist, competed wearing GK, along with the rest of the Ukrainian gymnasts.  Also wearing GK were gymnasts from Morocco, Uzbekistan, and Latvia.  Although the Gold Medal U.S. Women's Team did not wear GK for those Olympic Games, when featured in People Magazine's "Most Amazing People in 1996" issue and asked to wear their own favorite leotards for the photo shoot, all but one showed up in a GK leotard! 

The inertia of GK's international relations was set in 1999 when the company, after an introduction by Wolfgang Bohner, clinched a contract with the German National Gymnastic Federation to become the official sponsor of the German National Team.  That same year, Wolfgang became GK Elite's first international distributor.  Today, GK has 25 international distributors in 15 countries servicing over 50 countries.  GK - made locally, sold globally!

GK and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Donate $5,000 Couture Leotard to Pink Invitational

GK, along with the support of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, is pleased to announce the donation of the first in a line of couture gymnastics leotards.  The first couture leotard is designed especially for the Pink Invitational outreach gymnastics meet on February 24 – 26, 2012, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The proceeds from the raffle of this courage-inspired leotard design will benefit Unite for HER, a non-profit organization dedicated to breast cancer awareness programs for women.  This one-of-a-kind leotard design boasts an approximate retail value of $5,000 and is part of GK’s 2012 – 2013 Couture Collection.  A companion leotard will be made available for purchase as part of the Ultimate Brilliance by Elite collection which will be featured in GK’s 2012 – 2013 annual competitive catalog.

"We are excited to present this one of a kind leotard especially designed for Unite for Her,” said Kelly McKeown, Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations & Design.  “It is encrusted with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, and the intricate detail takes your breath away!  We recognize the need to find new and innovative ways to bring awareness to the cause and to raise funds for wellness programs that have such a positive impact for women. We are grateful for Swarovski's generous donation and partnership on this project."
 

GKCGKC3

The GK Couture Collection leotard is a truly unique long sleeve competitive gymnastics leotard that evokes both strength and beauty, featuring stunning Black and Petal Pink Mystique fabrics that provide a premium backdrop for the 10,000+ handset Classic and Diamond Leaf SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS adorning the garment. Due to the generosity of Swarovski, the leotard designer, Julia Kline, was able to choose an array of gorgeous hues to illuminate the leotard including Crystal Moonlight, Rose, Indian Pink, Fuchsia, Ruby, Hyacinth, Topaz, Crystal Golden Shadow, and more, all donated by the premium brand for the finest crystal elements in the world, SWAROVKSI ELEMENTS.  The unparalleled leotard design carries an approximate retail value of $5,000, and both GK & Swarovski look forward to the proceeds of the charity raffle benefiting Unite for HER wellness programs.

Raffle ticket sales will take place both at the Pink Invitational and online.  Online orders can be emailed to uniteforher@yahoo.com and must include name, address, phone number and the number of tickets being ordered.  Raffle tickets will be available at 10 tickets for $10, 30 tickets for $20 or 100 tickets for $50.  Payment can be made through PayPal on the Unite for HER website at http://www.uniteforher.org/get-involved-donate.html.

Julia Kline, a GK designer for eight years, holds a bachelor of science in apparel design from the University of Delaware.  Her design inspiration stems from her own personal advocacy and support of breast cancer awareness over many years.  “This opportunity is a dream come true for any designer.  I jumped at the opportunity to create a couture leotard supporting the cause,” Julia said.  “It was very exciting to work with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and have free reign over which crystals I could choose from and use in my design with no limitations.  The flame design engulfing the iconic pink ribbon on the back of the leotard portrays the courageous “fight” each woman faces when she braves her personal battle with breast cancer.  The rest of the design is symbolic of the strength and beauty that can arise from something so tragic.”

Julia continued, “Every leotard that I design for GK has its own special meaning.  Some are unique based on the design inspiration I had at the time and some utilize new manufacturing techniques, fabrics or embellishments, which is always exciting.  I am able to express emotions, inspirations and ideas and see them come to life with every style.”

Julia also designed a companion leotard which will be available as part of the Ultimate Brilliance collection and featured in GK’s 2012 – 2013 annual competitive catalog.  According to Julia, “The couture leotard then inspired the creation of the commercial leotard.  The styling is similar, but with a marketable price tag.” 

UBFUB2

Her Ultimate Brilliance Courage leotard has over 2,000 Classic Crystal SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS adorning the body and sleeves of the garment and an additional 1,600 Pink, Fuchsia, Clear, Ruby, and Tangerine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS on the back.  The same Black and Petal Pink Mystiques are the foundation for the crystals.  The competitive leotard design features the same classic v-neck and long sleeves.  The leotard will be available in sizes Child Small through Adult Extra Large.

Be on the lookout for the next one-of-a-kind leotard from the Ultimate Brilliance by GK collection!

While you wait, check out our current competitive catalog for long sleeve gymnastics leotards or the 2012 Spring Essentials catalog for all of your gymnastic leotard and workout apparel needs.
