Gym Owner Orders Early & Gets Dream GK Leotards

You know GK for our unparalleled fit, our use of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, and our infinite possibilities for design - but do you know why you should order early with GK?

  • Potential for Early-Buy discount which could save you up to 18% off your entire order
  • Stress free design process
  • Receive sizing samples allowing plenty of time to size your team ensuring a perfect fit
  • Worry free delivery dates
  • Have your GK gymnastics leotards in hand for your first meet

Don't take our word for it, listen to Summer Andrew, Owner of Arizona Dreams Gymnastics Academy, who said, "When I bought a gym last year, I knew that we were going to change the colors. I decided to design a set of sample leos. We ordered the samples early so we could decide if we wanted to change the design. We did decide to re-order & re-design the leos.  I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went. We had all of our leos in time to compete and didn't need to send any back. I found it very helpful to work with my GK Gymnastics Sales Representative, Lisa Behm.  Lisa helped the order run smoothly and  turn out perfectly. We get countless compliments on our leotards.  Thanks GK!"

The AZ Dreams Optional Team leo is GK's Petal Design Gymnastics Leotard 9550, a scoop neck, long sleeve gymnastics leotard that dazzles with its floral design throughout bodice and ribbon effect on the back. Arizona Dreams chose Black Mystique fabric with Sunshine Mystique and Steel Mystique for the appliques.  Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS accent the style lines.

The Compulsory Team's leotard is GK's Interlaced Swirl Leotard 9555, a classic neckline long sleeve gymnastics leotard featuring a dramatic interlaced swirl design and scoop back.  Their leo is made with the same Black Mystique, Sunshine Mystique, and Steel Mystique fabrics and Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS for sparkle.

Adding team cohesion are the custom jewels down the left sleeve of both leos spelling out AZ DREAMS - a perfect personalization.

Are you a gym owner and/or coach in Arizona, Nevada, or Utah?  Contact Lisa Behm to see what GK could do for you.  If you are in other areas of the U.S., find out which local GK Gymnastics Representative to contact here.

Customer Update Regarding adidas Merchandise

After months of negotiations, Elite Sportswear and adidas were unable to come to a mutually agreeable renewal of our global licensing agreement.  While the former partnership was successful and positive, the two companies could not agree on mutual goals for the future of their relationship.

What does that mean for Elite Sportswear’s customers?

Effective immediately, Elite Sportswear is unable to process any new orders for adidas stock or special order merchandise and after December 31, 2012, will be unable to accept any re-orders or fill-ins.

We sincerely apologize for the late notice, however, due to extended contract negotiations with adidas and contractual confidentiality agreements, we were not able to give more advance notice.

In an attempt to minimize any negative impact on our customers, we made a conscious decision not to introduce any new adidas styles in our 2012-13 In Stock and Competitive catalogs, and instructed our sales reps to encourage their customers to re-order early.  We realize we may not have reached all of you.

Although it is unfortunate that a renewal was not successful, we are more excited about the future than ever.  More people are choosing GK than ever before.  We feel that we have the most well-rounded and stylish leotard collections in the company’s history.  We are proud to have Olympic champions Gabrielle Douglas and Alexandra Raisman as our newest endorsed athletes, and our customer service rankings have been outstanding.

What should I do if I still have questions about my adidas gymnastics order?

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call customer service at 800-345-4087.

THIS JUST IN - GABRIELLE DOUGLAS SIGNS WITH GK!

GK is delighted to announce the addition of Gabrielle Douglas to its premier roster of GK Champions. In July of 2012, Gabrielle, who is coached by Liang Chow at Chow's Gymnastics in Des Moines, Iowa, became the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the Individual All-Around Champion as well as the first American gymnast to win the gold medal in both the Individual All-Around and the Team Competition during the same Olympic Games. 

As a GK Champion, Gabrielle joins an elite group of gymnastic champions, past and present, who choose GK.  Gabrielle will beautifully sport GK gymnastics apparel at events, grace GK catalogs, and will promote GK across social medial and advertising campaigns.

Probably the most exciting part of Gabrielle signing on to be a GK Champion - the Gabrielle Douglas Signature Collection of gymnastics leotards!  The first six leotards of the Signature Collection by Gabrielle Douglas, designed by the gold medalist, will be available for sale in 2013 at www.gkelite.com.

"I am so honored and excited to have my own line of leotards with GK,” said Gabrielle.  “Expressing my personality and love for gymnastics through this leotard collection is a great way to share my creative ideas.  I will be really proud when I see other gymnasts wearing my designs to practice!”

Gabrielle's Signature Collection follows the success of the Gold Medal Signature Collections by 2008 Olympic All-Around Champion Nastia Liukin and 2008 Olympic Balance Beam Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson.  Gabrielle's Signature Collection will join GK’s Alexandra Raisman collection announced earlier this year and continue the same brilliant combination of the design and manufacturing expertise of GK and the artistic vision and unique perspective of a top athlete in the sport of gymnastics.

Kelly McKeown, Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations & Design at GK said, "Gabrielle Douglas exudes excitement when doing gymnastics. Her energy and performance put a smile on your face when you watch her. Her new Signature Collection captures this same energy with colorful fabrics and playful designs. We are so excited for the upcoming launch of her line that is co-branded with GK.”

Elite Gymnastics Academy Reaps Rewards of Ordering Early

Elite Gymnastics Academy in Salinas, California, started the ordering process early for their new GK team leotards and warm ups and the extra time made for a relaxed design process, time for revisions, fittings, and stress-free order placement.

EGA wanted something very unique for their team leo.  They found inspiration in our long sleeve Asymmetrical Flame Competition Leotard 7546 and turned it into a tank leotard of their own design.  They chose Sangria, Silver, and Black Mystique fabric and then added the wow with Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  Ordering early gave them time to really think about what they wanted and time to work with their GK Sales Representative to bring their vision to life.

EGA also ordered GK's Classy Raglan Fitted Warm-Up Jackets 8777 in Carbon and Black DryTech with custom jewels on the style lines and their team name recreated in clear and brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. 

EGA enjoyed 15% off of their entire order due to early ordering and had no worries about their GK gymnastics leotards and warm-ups being delivered in time for their first meet.

A chat with GK's newest leotard designer, Aly Raisman

GK had the pleasure of hosting another photo shoot with Olympic Gold Medalist Aly Raisman, this time for her Spring 2012 Signature Collection.  We have to keep her latest gymnastics leotard designs under wraps for now, but Aly did take the time to answer some questions for our GK family, friends, and fans. 

GK: How do you like having your own Signature Collection of GK leotards?

Aly: Having my own leotard line for GK is a dream come true.  It’s so exciting.  It was amazing just last night when I went to the gym and saw little girls wearing my leotards.

GK: What kind of feedback have you been getting about your GK leotard line? 

Aly: So far, I’ve been getting really good feedback which means a lot to me.  When I was training seven hours a day it was really important for me to have comfortable leotards. The girls at the gym last night said my leotards are really comfortable, so I was happy to hear that.

GK: Was designing leotards something you wanted to do even before partnering with GK?

Aly: Designing leotards has always been a goal of mine. I’m very into fashion so I really wanted to have my own leotard line.  It’s just really exciting, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

GK: Do you find yourself taking mental notes or jotting down ideas for future leotard designs?

Aly: Yes, I’m always thinking ahead.  Last night I was asking the little girls at the gym what kind of leotards they like to wear and I told them that they could help me design some of the next ones.  They said they really love bright colors like pinks and lime greens and blues, so I will definitely keep that in mind. 

GK: Where does your design inspiration come from?

Aly: My design inspiration comes from things that I like to wear. I like to be different, but I like a simple look, but sometimes with a lot of jewels. Going to the gym and seeing a fun, bright leotard always makes me happy. 

GK: GK is the official apparel sponsor of the Kellogg’s Tour – do you have a favorite GK costume on the Kellogg’s Tour?

Aly:  My favorite GK costume is definitely the beam costume.  It’s a white, one shoulder leotard and has a lot of crystals on it.  It’s supposed to look like an angel.  It’s really different.  It has a little mesh skirt and a mesh wing and it’s a very elegant piece to wear with the rest of the girls. 

GK: Where do you keep your Olympic medals?

Aly: My Olympic medals are in a safe!

GK: Did you have a favorite Olympic leotard?

Aly: My favorite Olympic leotard was definitely the Stars & Stripes one that I wore for floor finals.  I loved the patriotic look and winning that particular medal made it even more of a favorite.  I loved all of the leotards.  They were all so beautiful.  My other favorites were the Purple Starburst one we wore the first day and then the team finals Chrysler Leotard.

GK: How many leotards do you think you own?

Aly: I was actually just thinking about that!  I think that I probably own, close to … somewhere between 50-75. 

GK: How did you like being a Halloween Costume choice this year?

Aly: Being a Halloween Costume choice was definitely cool.  People were tweeting pictures of their Fierce Five costumes to me and the rest of the girls.  It was inspiring to see so many people dressed up as us. 

GK:  Anything you’d like to say to the girls who will be buying and wearing your GK
Signature Leotards?

Aly: I hope all the girls love my Signature Line as much as I do.  I hope they find them really comfortable.  And, I just want to thank them all for wearing my GK gymnastics leotards.
