GK Offers Gymnastics Apparel & Healthy Eating Tips From Unite for HER

Stick it for the cause! October is breast cancer awareness month and GK has partnered with Unite for HER a non-profit organization started in 2009 that is dedicated to providing breast cancer programs and initiatives. Unite for HER’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of women and girls by supporting and providing breast cancer and wellness programs that educate, empower and restore. Topics include nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual and physical needs. In support of this organization, GK will contribute 5% of sales to Unite for HER for every breast cancer awareness leotard sold. "Thank you again for partnering with us, aligning with our vision, and helping us reach our mission and outreach for Unite for HER.", thanks Sue Weldon, President and Founder of Unite for HER.

Healthy Eating Tips

"You are what you eat" is an old saying that is actually true and applies directly to a patient who is fighting breast cancer. There are certainly better choices to be made when considering a diet specific to healing. You can start today with taking a few steps towards a healthier you at any stage of life. The list below is offered by Unite for HER and includes some ways you can improve your eating habits and health:

1. Reduce the amount of processed foods you consume. Eating real, whole foods like fresh produce is a great way to start. This can be time consuming and you may find yourself cooking and baking more often, but it is worth skipping all the additives and chemicals.

2. Keep a food diary. Write down the foods you consume daily and you will notice a pattern of foods that you tend to eat the most often. Now, replace those frequent treats with organic versions. These organic versions are free of hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics, which is healthier for you and the environment.

3. The best organic foods to buy are meats, poultry, dairy, fish, nuts, fruits and veggies, coffee, tea, chocolate and wine. Look for leaner cuts of meat such as boneless, skinless chicken and beef tenderloin. This will ensure to eliminate any chemicals that could get absorbed in fatty tissues such as skin. If organic is not in your budget opt for hormone-free options. Be sure to eat organic fruits and vegetables that you eat whole such as those with skins like apples.

4.  Buy local produce. Produce begins to lose nutrients the moment it is picked therefore the fresher the better.

Even small steps for mindful, healthy eating contribute to a healthier body! GK is adopting this lifestyle and we encourage our workplace to adapt to these small changes.

Featured to the left is GK's Berry Pink Ribbon Gym Leo BCA30 a beautiful Berry V neck gymnastics tank leotard with Silver Hologram Sequinz pink ribbon design in support of breast cancer awareness. This leo is available in Berry Nylon/Spandex and features the GK brand and breast cancer awareness logo on the lower left hip.

WOGA Wows at 2013 Secret U.S. Classic in GK

World Olympic Gymnastics Academy (WOGA) gymnasts didn't just wow their competitors and fans with their performances, but also mesmerized them with their dazzling GK leotards at the 2013 Secret U.S. Classic.  The Classic was held on Saturday, July 27th in Chicago, IL.

WOGA, co-founded by former Olympic Gymnastics Champion Valeri Liukin and World Sports Acrobatics Champion Yevgeny Marchenko, is one of the largest and most successful training centers worldwide.  Olympic All Around Gold Medalists Carly Patterson (2004) and Nastia Liukin (2008) trained at WOGA.  WOGA's reputation was upheld at the Classic when their gymnasts made a strong showing.  Madison Kocian earned the second-highest score behind Kyla Ross on the senior level uneven bars.  Way to go, WOGA!

The girls looked unstoppable in their elegant GK custom design V neck and back long sleeve leos.  It's Red Mystique and Red Hot Mesh fabrics give it a competitive look, while the Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS on the sleeves, front and back add a touch of elegance.  They put their mark on their leotards by placing their logo on the right hip in Brilliance Crystals.

GK Sponsors Region 3 Congress & Compulsory Workshops!

GK's booth had a big presence at the Region 3 Congress and Compulsory Workshops at the Embassy Suites in Frisco, TX from June 21-23!  At Congress, coaches came from all over Region 3 to learn the new routines that will be performed by their gymnasts.  Each level has its own routine and skills that each gymnast in their respective level must master.  There are over 75 sessions covering 2013 Compulsory information, Competitive Coaches education (JO, TOPS and Elite), Preschool and School Age Class education, Business education and Judges education.

Coaches could stop by the GK booth to check out our leotards, claim some freebies, and chat with our sales representatives.  While there, they were able to fill out an entry form and submit it in hopes of winning one of two prizes.  One drawing was made for a Cirque du Soleil leotard and the other for an Under Armour leo!  Even Tom Koll, USA Gymnastics National Junior Olympic Committee Chair and Compulsory Clinician, stopped by the GK booth and loved it.

Below, the lucky leotard drawing winners are posing with their brand new leos and GK sales rep Ms. June!  Madeline Newsome from Amarillo College, shown below to the left, is holding her new UA Strength Leotard (Style 6300) and Ghislane Lune from Elite Sports in El Paso, TX, shown below to the right, has her winning GK Cirque du Soleil Passion Flame Tank Leotard (Style CIR008).

If you love these lucky winners' leos, check out all of the gymnastics leotards and apparel we have to offer on our GK website by clicking here!  To find your region's "Ms. June", check out our list of US Gymnastics Sales Representatives.
