Head Over Heels for GK

Head over Heels Gymnastics in Birmingham, AL shine bright in their modern GK workout leotards! They recently hosted the Reach for the Starz Invitational. This gym is dedicated to helping children gain a healthy and fit lifestyle, gymnastics skills, confidence and self-esteem for over 20 years.  As the organization grows they are now offering new programs focused on providing the very best in children’s gymnastics and fitness.

On the left,  Head Over Heels is shown wearing their new GK gymnastics leotards. A member of the meet committee explains why they love our gymnastics apparel, "We decided to go with GK after comparing other vendors and seeing what they had to offer.  GK won our vote due to the quality of the leo, and help with the design. We very much appreciated the support we received from Amanda Banks, our GK representative and her willingness to help us work through this process.  We used these leos for our Reach for the Starz Meet. We were thrilled to offer the leo to every gymnast who attended our meet.  It was the best feeling to see all of our hard work pay off and hear the compliments on our leos."

The team chose our Mystique Low Scoop Neck Leotard 3619 a beautiful Steel Mystique low scoop tank leotard with custom Sequinz embellishments. Your team will love the shimmer of this leo in a large selection of beautiful colors including Steel, Merlot, Sangria, Sunshine, Lime, Grape, Cherry, and Electric Turquoise Mystique.

Gymnasts Share Love for GK and Gymnastics at Photo Shoot

GK recently caught up with hard working gymnasts, Meredith Sylvia, Elizabeth Price aka "Ebee," and Jazmyn Estrella at our gymnastics catalog photo shoot. They were all so excited to be here and be able to model the latest styles in our world leading gymnastics apparel. All of the girls train at Parkettes National Gymnastics Training Center located in Allentown, PA and love that their coaches allow them to choose their GK competitive gymnastics apparel for meets.

Meredith Sylvia is shown on the left as she prepares for her GK photo shoot. She is a level 10 gymnast who enjoys the floor exercise the most out of all the events. She is currently working on mastering her full in back out on the floor, double full and yurchenko layout double twist on the vault, as well as her connections on the beam. She loves GK gymnastics apparel, especially our workout leotards in all shades of blue and our SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS enhanced competitive leotard designs.

Elizabeth Price or "Ebee" is an Elite gymnast who trains under coaches Donna and Bill Strauss, Robin Netwall, John Holman and Joe Stallone. Her favorite event is the uneven bars and always enjoys the challenge of learning new gymnastics skills. Her concentration lately has been on her full twisting double layout dismount, a challenge in itself. Ebee loves our gymnastics workout apparel and seems to gravitate to purple shades for her workout leos. When it comes to competitions, she loves a stunning black competitive leotard with bold and colorful accents and some clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS for added shimmer. Elizabeth's next competitive meet will be in Germany in late November. We will miss Ebee as this is her last photo shoot with us. She has recently signed a Letter of Intent with Stanford University for 2014-2015. Congrats to Ebee, we are so proud of you! Read more about her future with Stanford here.

Jazmyn Estrella is a level 10 gymnast who loves  competing on the vault. She is currently working on perfecting her yurchenko layout 1 1/2 for the vault, inspired by Russian gymnast Natalia Yurchenko, her pak salto on the bars, and side and front aerials on the balance beam. Her favorite color in GK workout apparel is light blue, and likes our sporty and athletically styled competitive wear. She and Meredith's next meet will be held in Baltimore, MD in December.

GK wishes our models the best of luck with their upcoming competitive meets and we are proud to have them wearing our gymnastics leo styles.

Recipes provided by Katie Cavuto, MS, RD, Unite for HER.

Chocolate Bark Recipe

Chocolate can be a simple pleasure in life and actually offers many health benefits if you eat the right variety. Choose dark, unprocessed chocolate which comes straight from the cocoa bean, and benefit from the packed flavanols that carry antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These flavanols in chocolate can also help to significantly lower blood pressure and can even lower your risk of heart failure.

~ Dark Chocolate Bars or Chips

~ Nuts and seeds, preferably unsalted (anti-inflammatory fats, heart healthy)

~ Dried fruits such as cherries, mangoes, preferably unsweetened (rich in disease-fighting antioxidants)

Melt chocolate in double boiler and pour on parchment sheet. Sprinkle with nuts, seeds, and fruits and cool in refrigerator.

 

Hummus Recipe

Hummus is a super protein packed, smooth textured Middle Eastern dip that can be made in a variety of ways. Chick peas are the main ingredient which have anti-inflammatory properties, tons of protein, and can also regulate blood sugar and cholesterol, which can be affected by cancer treatments. Chick peas also fluch toxins form your body and reduce colon cancer risk.

~ 1 can of chick peas

~ 1/4 cup of the liquid from the can

~ 3 T. lemon juice

~ 1 1/2 T. tahini

~ 2 cloves of garlic, crushed

~ 1 t. sea salt

~3 T. olive oil

Blend in a Cuisinart or mixer.

2012 All-Around Olympic & GK Champion, Gabby Douglas Inspires "Dreams of Gold" Lifetime Movie

There is no doubt that 2012 All-Around Olympic and GK Champion, Gabby Douglas has overcome a great deal of hardship and obstacles, both in her personal life and in her gymnastics career. In fact, the story of her life is so interesting that it is now the inspiration for a TV movie, "Dreams of Gold", to be aired on the Lifetime Network this weekend. The movie, which took 4 weeks to film, begins in Winnepeg and concludes in Portage la Prairie's PCU Centre, where Gabby made her first debut as a gymnast. She has really enjoyed the experience filming a movie and is still in disbelief that her life has evolved to this point. She and her family are pleased with such a positive and motivating film, as Gabby is a role model for so many young athletes. Gabby remarks, “I couldn’t be any more proud to be featured in a Lifetime movie based on my life and gymnastics journey. The movie portrays a clear description of the challenges and sacrifices my family and I have made to make my dreams come true!”

Be sure to stay tuned this Saturday, February 1 when Gabby's movie, "Dreams of Gold" will premier on Lifetime at 8pm ET/PT.

To your left, you'll find Gabrielle Douglas in one of her GK Exclusive Gabby Douglas leotards from her 2014 Spring Collection. The Gabby Douglas Scoop Back Leo E2455 is an elegant workout leotard which features a wave of silver and Berry Hologram Sequinz on a stunning shade of Seaglass Sparkle Hologram Nylon/Spandex.

According to the World Health Organization, wellness is defined as "the optimal state of health of individuals and groups. There are two focal concerns: the realization of the fullest potential of an individual physically, psychologically, socially, spiritually, and economically; and the fulfillment of one's role expectations in the family, community, place of worship, workplace, and other settings." This is a very detailed and well rounded explanation which naturally stimulates one to evaluate their own life. To be well, means to have a balance in all aspects of your life, a very challenging task in today's busy world.

 

Brought to you from Unite for HER, here are some steps in lowering your exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins in our beauty and bath products.

Estela brightens any room she walks into and we were happy to catch up with her recently. Enjoy our conversation with her below.

GK - You have been passionate about the sport of gymnastics for most of your life. How can you describe your journey in this sport and what have you learned from it?

Estela - I started gymnastics when I was 6 years old. I was very very active and never stopped doing gymnastics all over my house. My Father Carlos, my Mother Estela and my Brothers: Carlos, Federico, Monica, Mario Ana Mary support me all the time to be the best gymnast and diver in México and compete all over the world representing my country. During the Olympics in Montreal 1976 I saw Nadia Comaneci competing on TV  and she inspired me to be like her and I dreamdt of meeting her one day.  When I started gymnastics, I competed in The Junior Club until I started training in the Mexican Olympic Center. I competed from México in Pan Am Games in Puerto Rico 1979 winning the Team Bronze Medal. Then I competed in the World Championship in Forth Worth in 1979, where I was the only Mexican Gymnast qualified for the Olympics in Moscu 1980. Before the Olympics in Moscú, I competed in The Pan Pacific in Hawaii, Edmonton and Seattle. After that I competed in the American Cup in the Madison Square Garden. Also some other competitions I participated in were in the Moscú News, Budapest and Riga Cup. At 15 years old, the year of 1980 in Mosco, I had one of my best experiences of my life. My best memory was my leotard from GK because I competed with the same leotard I used in the World Championship in Forth Word, Texas. I did my best competition and my dream came true! i Competed in the Olympics beside Nadia Comaneci. Wahooo!!! This was an amazing and unforgettable experience. In this Olympics, I was surprised because I competed in the All Around Finals making history in Mexico, to be until this year the only Mexican Gymnast in the History competing in the All Around Finals. Finally when I retired from gymnastics I started diving in the Mexican Olympic Center. When I first began I went to the Centroamerican Games winning 3 gold medals in Santo Domingo, Republica Domenicana. After this I competed in Pan Am Games in Venezuela where I finished in 4th place on 10 mts platform. Then went to compete to Russia, Fina Cup in Shangai-China, Germany, Sweden,Austria and Italy making finals in 10mts Platform. My best result in diving was 8th place in the World Diving Championship in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

GK - What are some of the major obstacles you had to overcome through your gymnastics career?

Estela - My injuries. I overcame these obstacles by going to the gym in the Olympic Center, instead of staying in my house. My home was and still is the Mexican Olympic Center in México, City.

GK - Why do you love GK gymnastics apparel?
Estela - I love GK gymnastics apparel because as a gymnast the only thing I buy when I travel were all colors and shapes of leotards all over the world and the best are GK styles. I have a massive collection of GK competition leos, and still have my BEST GK leotard, the one that I competed in the World Championship and Olympic Games. I Love it !!!

GK - What advice would you give to aspiring gymnasts based on your experiences?
Estela - My best advice for all boy and girl gymnasts is that they have to enjoy this beautiful sport and make their dreams come true. Also never give up. With hard work, discipline and tenacity you will make your goals come true. GO FOR THEM!

GK - Describe how you have remained focused on your career through the years.

Estela - I am very proud to have the best family with me all the time, also I am very happy for having been a gymnast and a diver representing Mexico all over the world. I am also very proud to have covered 6 Olympic Games on Mexican TV as a Commentator of Artistic Gymnastic, Rythmic Gymnastic, Diving and Synchronized Swimming in Seúl-1988, Barcelona-1992, Atlanta-1996, Sidney-2000, Athens-2004, Beijing-2008 and London-2012. I am still a TV Commentator in Televisa Deportes Network.

GK - What are your plans for the future in the gymnastics industry?

Estela - Now I am currently the General Director of the Mexican Open in Acapulco along with Grupo Pegaso. I am on the Board of IGHOF, which has been a wonderful experience. Working with some of my favorite people including Paul Ziert, Bart Conner, Michael Wilson and all of the Team US Boarders in this IGHOF. My plans for the future in gymnastics industry is to help and improve this brilliant sport in the world. I would love to have my very own exclusive gymnastics designs with GK!
