Kyla Ross Gets Silver in GK Leotard at the 2014 U.S. National Championship

Kyla Ross defends her Silver Medal at the 2014 U.S. National Championship in her show stopping GK competitive leotard. She also won the Gold Medal for her beautiful balance beam routine that demonstrated a sought after, elegant air that captivated the crowds and kept her a cut above the rest. Her graceful, feminine touch to every tumbling pass made you wonder if you were watching a gymnast or a prima ballerina. 

Kyla Ross Competes in GK Leotard at 2014 U.S. National Championship

It was not just her poised frame that stood out, but Ross's sensational Sweetheart Swirls Competition Leotard 9585 made her the belle of the ball. The charcoal mystique top lays a dramatic backdrop for the lipstick nylon/spandex swirls to dance across the sleeves of this v neck gymnastics leotard. A faux sweetheart neckline wraps around into a deep v back as brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS embellish this regal, long sleeve leotard.

It has been 15 years since this Elite gymnast started pursuing a career in gymnastics, and she has certainly come a long way. When asked by USA Gymnastics how she got started, she says, "My mom put me in gymnastics when I was 3 years old because I had so much energy and was extremely active."  A mother's instinct certainly paid off, as Ross continues to hold the Silver Medal Title for the Senior U.S. National Women's Team and prepares to compete at the Pan American Championships. Congratulations, Kyla! Your dedication and passion for the sport of gymnastics is clearly evident at every event and we look forward to watching your continued success in GK gymnastics apparel!

GK Gymnastics Apparel Featured in Mancino Mats Photo Shoot

It was a fun filled day as GK gymnastics wear flipped, twisted, and tumbled through the air at the Mancino Mats photo shoot last month! Our women's gymnastics leotards and men's competitive wear was featured in over 300 shots that will be used to increase Mancino Mats brand awareness online as well as used in their 2014-2015 catalog. Rebecca Mancino shares with us why they chose to feature GK gymnastics apparel, “we have used GK leotards at many photo shoots since our 1966 beginning. Due to our close relationship to Wendy Martin,GK's Vice President of Global Gymnastics Sales, it was a given that we would not only feature GK leotards but also ask Wendy to direct a few key sessions of athletes in their shots. While we are proud to be industry experts at safety padding manufacturing, we know that we must rely on other industry experts, such as GK and Wendy, to shoot the best possible pictures. It was a great experience with gorgeous leotards!”

Everyday Champion Makenzie Loves GK Sparkle

Everyday champion, Makenzie, from Arizona just turned 8 years old and couldn't wait to try on her birthday gift, a brand new GK leotard with workout shorts! While practicing at Rhythm & Motion Dance Center in Arizona, Makenzie looks forward to doing splits and practicing her routines for competition. In addition to dancing and tumbling, she also enjoys performing as a cheerleading mascot for her father's football team at Red Mountain High School. Makenzie works hard on her tumbling and flexibility so she can someday join the varsity cheer squad.

The Shimmering Purple Workout Leotard 3710 that she eagerly accepted and changed into 3 hours before practice is a shimmering Lavender Ice Mystique garment with Imperial Purple zig-zag trim design and Purple Sequinz scattered across the right side. Makenzie recommends it because it "sparkles everywhere." According to Makenzie, there's no leotard brand that shines quite like GK. We love the way this beautiful purple leotard fits Makenzie so well, not to mention the smile it put on her face. It relates perfectly with her White Sparkle Cheer Shorts CB509 with a turned up hem and elastic waistband for maximum comfort. These shorts are a great accessory to add your team logo on with either jewels, sequinz, imprinting or embroidery, but they're also perfect on Makenzie as is.

Thanks for sharing your birthday photo with us, Makenzie!

Harlem Invitational Proudly Sponsored by GK Gymnastics Leotards

Throughout our 30+ years of service to gymnasts worldwide, GK has proudly donated, and continues to donate, millions of dollars in leotards and gymnastics accessories to the industry. This dedication to give back is not one that we take lightly. It is twofold a responsibility and an honor, for without organizations such as USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics, TOPS, East/West Championships, and smaller organization such as the Wendy Hilliard Foundation, the sport that we dedicate our lives to day in and day out would cease to exist, and so would we.

Harlem Gymnastic's Purple GK LeotardHarlem Gymast in GK Leotard for Wendy Hilliard Foundation

One of our most recent and prized contributions to gymnastics went to a Hall of Fame Rhythmic Gymnast named Wendy Hilliard. Wendy operates a not for profit gym, The Wendy Hilliard Foundation “WHF”, that provides free weekly gymnastics classes to New York inner city youth. Their website states, "As the first African-American to represent the U.S. in rhythmic gymnastics, Wendy Hilliard's goal was to create a program that provided an opportunity for more minorities to experience her sport. After serving over 10,000 participants the Wendy Hilliard Foundation has established an incredible track record of providing quality programming for people of all ages and abilities in the sport of gymnastics." She has even taken her athletes to the Junior Olympic National Championships, where they consistently won top honors and earned first place finishes. The WHF lady gymnasts are pictured above with GK Business Development Specialist, Erin Gettle.

This year, GK designed and donated a beautiful Imperial Purple Mystique 3/4 Sleeve Gymnastics Leotard 3457 to Wendy Hilliard's Harlem gymnasts. These leos, adorned with Silver Hologram Sequinz in a lively floral pattern, united the team at their own Harlem Invitational, where athletes competed in Rhythmic Gymnastics, Artistic Gymnastics and Trampoline and Tumbling. Most of the competing teams came from New York, but Harlem was also able to pull in some teams from New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts for this well-organized and well-received event.

The WHF guys wore a White Nylon/Spandex Wrap Around Men's Gymnastics Competition Shirt 1853 with Black and Purple Nylon/Spandex style lines along the shoulders and under the arms, and an over-sized Harlem Invitational embroidered logo on the front. Our men's competition shirts feature a boy cut leg for maximum comfort and support. GK also supplied the Harlem boys with a Men's Gymnastics Long Short 1818, in Black Nylon/Spandex.

As you can see from the photos above, the day wasn't all work and competition. It was also a celebration, of sorts, where the community gathered to honor all of the young gymnasts, their dedication and achievements, and to enjoy the day. The day was made possible through sponsorship from GK, TD Bank, Premier Physical Therapy & Wellness, Whole Foods and Aquafina. Each sponsor had something different to contribute. Thanks to Whole Foods, the coaches and judges enjoyed a delicious lunch, and many of the adults took advantage of Massage by Marta. Best of all, admission was free. The Wendy Hilliard Foundation ended the event with a 2 hour showcase of different groups from their organization putting on group and individual special performances.

If you missed the Harlem Invitational this year, it's definitely worth marking your calendar for 2015. Until then, you can be proud to shop the brand that supports all facets of gymnastics, GK.

GK Sales Representative Supports Aim High Academy

Here's a shout-out to our Sales Representative, June Blackman, and the organization that she recently assisted, Aim High Academy, for their efforts to give underprivileged children an opportunity to experience the sport of gymnastics. Founder and Executive Director of Aim High Gymnastics, Jennifer Patterson, sent GK this wonderful note about June, saying,

"I was writing to inform you of a marvelous gesture June Blackman performed for Aim High Academy. We are a non-profit gymnastics program for underprivileged children. We serve over 250 children. We hosted our first gymnastics meet on Jan. 18th in Tulsa, OK. We called it the Dream Meet and ran it in conjunction with MLK Jr. Weekend. It was a great success! We ran a wonderful meet and raised quite a bit of money for Aim High.

One way we raised money was through a raffle. June donated a beautiful leotard out of the Brilliance Collection to the cause. We were able to sell about 700 raffle tickets throughout the day."

The GK Ultimate Brilliance leotard pictured above is our Independent SWAROVSKI Leotard 1001. This Silver Mystique, long sleeve leo is a perfect addition to the Dream Meet. Featuring 3,300 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS in various colors, including Sapphire Blue, Ruby, Navy and Clear, this $480 leo represents the stars of our gymnastics industry, and the bright futures of our gymnastics athletes. Visit our entire collection of Ultimate Brilliance leotards for more dazzling styles adorned with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

GK Vice President of Global Gymnastics Sales, Wendy Marshall Martin and GK Business Development Specialist, Calli Campo told us that the hosts, Houston Gymnastics Center, did a fabulous job planning this meet, "...great location and space. The coach’s hospitality room was upstairs from the competition floor, but overlooked the meet. This was great for coaches to grab food, relax, and still be able to watch their kids." These ladies, along with GK Sales Representative, Ms. June, set up a booth between the three gyms and handed out mints, lip gloss and GK Catalogs. They also displayed an array of our newest selection of leotards, released to the public just last month.

The next time you're at a big meet, stop by to say hello to GK where you're sure to find your next favorite workout leotard, and maybe even a small gift. And, if you weren't wearing a GK Women's Competitive Leotard or a men's Under Armour or GK Competitive Shirt for this event, make sure your team is prepared to compete with the best next time, in the most sought after gymnastics apparel in the industry, GK.
