GK was honored to once again be the gymnastics apparel sponsor for the WHGF gymnasts.

Ashton Locklear and MyKayla Skinner Visit GK Headquarters

We were honored to have 2014 U.S. National Team Members, Ashton Locklear of Everest Gymnastics and MyKayla Skinner of Desert Lights Gymnastics visit the GK Elite headquarters in Reading, PA earlier this month. While they were here, these Elite athletes got a behind the scenes tour and modeled some competition leotards for our 2015 catalog.

Ashton Locklear knew from a young age that she wanted to be involved in the sport of gymnastics. At age two, she could be found in the audience of her sister's tumbling and trampoline competitions imitating the movements of the older gymnasts. Her parents realized there was no keeping this ambitious athlete away from her passion and natural talent for gymnastics. Now, this Elite athlete is part of the 2014 World gold medalist team where she placed an impressive fourth place on the uneven bars.

MyKayla Skinner Prepares for GK Gymnastics Photo ShootMyKayla Skinner Shops at GK Gymnastics Warehouse for Training Leotards

MyKayla Skinner also followed in her big sisters' footsteps and at the age of four began gymnastics. Her natural born talent in the sport quickly brought her to an Elite level where she became a member of the 2014 World gold medalist team and vault bronze medalist. Her other World accomplishments include fourth place on the floor at finals and sixth All Around in the preliminaries.  

We loved having these talented gymnasts model for our catalog and enjoyed getting to know them. We look forward to their continued contributions to the sport of gymnastics and can't wait to see what 2015 holds in store for them!

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.

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.

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.

Everyday Champion: Kathryn

Meet Kathryn, a 6 year old, Level 3 gymnast from Pennsylvania who just got a brand new Aly leo from Santa!

Kathryn loves all of the Fierce Five Olympic gymnasts, especially Aly and Gabby, so this was the perfect gift for her. The bars and vault are her favorite events and she loves to flip on the tumble track. Kathryn is going to be the envy of her fellow gymnasts in this Berry and Sangria Mystique Aly Raisman Feather V neck Workout Leo E2338 as she trains to compete for her gymnastics team next year. She loves all the pink in this leo, but she adores the asymmetrical feather design highlighted with silver hologram sequinz. It's all about the sparkle.

Katherine, you look precious in your new leo! GK wishes you the best in your training.

If you like Kathryn's workout leotard, be sure to check out the entire Aly Raisman's leotard collection or our GKids Collection, designed exclusively for entry level boys and girls.
