San Jose State Doubles Up On Sequinz Leotards

The gymnastics team from San Jose State University in San Jose, California needed two new leotards this season and GK Sales Representative for Northern California, Holly Thomas, was very happy to help the Spartans get some sparkle.  Holly worked with San Jose Head Coach, Wayne Wright, and Assistant Coach, Shella Martinez, on the design of the team's new gymnastics leotards.  The coaches were drawn to the affordability of Sequinz which offer jewel-like bling for a far less, budget friendly price. 

Once the decision was made to go ahead with a Sequinz design, Coach Martinez and Holly worked together on choosing GK's Basic V Neck Gymnastics Leotard 4863, a classic gymnastics competition leo, in their school colors of Rich Royal Mystique with Gold Mystique binding along the neckline.  The sleeves were shortened to 3/4 length and then the Gold Hologram Sequinz Spartan logo was created and set on the left side of the body to wrap around to the back.

For the team's "pink meets," for breast cancer awareness, GK's In Stock 3/4 Sleeve Gymnastics Leotard 3457 in Black Mystique was the perfect choice.  A smaller Spartan logo on the chest was created using Pink Sequinz.  The Spartans light up the mat with their two Sequinz leotards! 

Do your athletes need some bling on a budget? New for 2013-2014 are Special Order Competitive Sequinz - seven NEW full body Sequinz designs!  You will have a brand new, sparkling leotard in four easy steps!

  1. Select your gymnastics leotard style
  2. Select your fabric
  3. Select your Sequinz design
  4. Select your Sequinz color

Aly Raisman Chats with GK about Dancing with the Stars

In between practice sessions for Dancing with the Stars, GK recently caught up with 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Alexandra Raisman and she gave us some of her thoughts on how gymnastics compares to ballroom dancing!

GK: How has training for Dancing with the Stars differentiated from training for the London Olympics? Are there any similarities?

AR: There aren't many similarities besides hard work!  Training for the Olympics takes years and years of hard work!  The Olympics are once in a lifetime and only come around once every four years!  The show is all about having fun!  I only have five days to learn a dance which is a huge challenge!  I love working hard, performing, and trying new things, which is why this show is so fun for me!

GK: Is it more comfortable to perform with a dress and heels rather than a leotard and barefooted?

AR: I am more comfortable competing in gymnastics because I've done it for so long.  Dancing in heels and a dress is a blast but it is very nerve-racking because I am not used to it.  Dancing is still very new to me. That being said, I love performing on the show.  It is a blast!

GK: How have you adjusted to sharing the floor with a partner?

AR: I am used to competing all by myself so working with a partner is completely different.  Instead of worrying about my tumbling, I have to make sure I am on every beat so I am in sync with my partner.  It is a huge challenge, but Mark is an amazing teacher!

GK: Will your Dancing with the Stars costumes inspire your GK leotard collection?

AR: Yes!!! I am so inspired to design new leotards! I love each and every costume I have worn.  They are all so beautiful!  Every week I get so many amazing ideas! I love how all of my costumes are fun, bright colors.  And they are so sparkly!

GK: Are there any aspects of Dancing with the Stars that you would like to bring back to the gym?

AR: Yes! I want to bring the performance level that I have on the show into my floor routine.  As a gymnast, I want to not only show great tumbling but also how I can connect with the music and how much I can show personality.

GK: How do you mentally prepare for Dancing with the Stars? How does this differ from gymnastics mental preparation?

AR: I'm always really nervous to perform on the show! We only have five days to perform completely new dances that we've never done in our life so it's a bit scary! However performing is a blast I love it so much! Hitting a good routine with Mark is such a great feeling! I prepare myself like I did gymnastics just by working hard and believing in myself

Tune in to ABC every Monday night at 8/7c to see Aly's performance and then vote, vote, VOTE!  Aly & Mark's voting number is 1-800-VOTE4-08 or 1-800-868-3408.

T&T Gymnast Flies in GK Leotard

Is it possible for a girl to fly?  If you are Charlotte Drury, the answer is YES! Charlotte, a Senior Elite Trampolinist and member of the USA Gymnastics National T&T Team knows what it takes to achieve her level of success and stands by the fact that GK truly is the Choice of Champions.

For any trampolinist, the need for leotards to fit long, slender, athletic body types is a necessity, and if a leo doesn't fit like a GK, then it has no business in the high-intensity world of T&T. However, for this 16-year-old from Laguna Niguel, there is one more extremely important factor... if you are going to win, WIN IN STYLE! Charlotte loves the flattering GK leotard designs and the comfort they provide. 

Charlotte was very excited to design a competition leotard for this year and the help she received from her GK Gymnastics Sales Rep, Kiana Ross, made the process easy and fun.  Charlotte's leotard is GK's Stunning Swirl Competition Leotard 9549, a long sleeve gymnastics leo featuring a classic neckline & scoop back with exquisite swirl design on the bodice and back.  Charlotte modified the sleeves to a comfortable 3/4 length and then chose White Mystique, Navy Mystique, and Steel Mystique fabrics.  The combination is beautiful and Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS add the perfect finishing touch. 

Charlotte and her teammates at World Elite Gymnastics have an exciting road ahead and GK is exited & proud to be a part of it and will be cheering them on along the way!

GK Proudly Sponsors 4th Nastia Liukin Cup

GK proudly sponsored The Nastia Liukin Cup for the fourth consecutive year.  This year's competition took place on Friday, March 1st, at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts after an exciting lead up of qualifying competitions as part of the Nastia Liukin Cup Series.  A select number of gymnasts from each invitational advanced to the Nastia Liukin Cup.  Alex McMurtry of Midlothian, Virginia/Richmond Olympiad Gymnastics, won the all-around title Friday night after an exciting come-from-behind finish. This was McMurty's third straight Nastia Liukin Cup appearance, but this year she posted a 38.450 for the win.  Aja-Monet Sims of Clermont, Florida/Brandy Johnson's, 38.175, and Samantha Partyka of Katy, Texas/Champions Gymnastics Academy, 38.075, took second and third. 

GK was excited to provide each participant with a Nastia Liukin-designed tank leotard, competition leotard, and warm-up. In addition to their gymnastics apparel, each athlete got to meet and have their photo taken with Nastia and received 2 tickets to the 2013 American Cup.  Click here for some great photographs of Nastia handing out the GK gymnastics apparel to the participants.

For training, participants received a GK tank gymnastics leotard with a classic neck line and elegant strappy back. The workout leotards were either Berry Slither with Black Mystique applique and binding, or Black Mystique with Berry Slither applique and binding.  The competition leotard followed suit with equally classic styling.  Each long sleeved leotard was either Berry Slither with Black Mystique applique or Black Mystique with Berry Slither applique.  All of the leotards were perfectly finished with the GK Nastia Liukin logo.

The athletes received a beautiful Black Velvet and Silver Mystique warm up jacket and coordinating black velvet warm-up pant.  The back of the warm up jacket was embellished with the Nastia Liukin Cup name and logo.

Proceeds from the event go to the Nastia Liukin Fund, a charitable fund within the National Gymnastics Foundation with the goal of partnering with fitness-oriented programs for young people and supporting clubs that aid athletes who need financial assistance to remain or become involved in gymnastics.
