Everyday Champion: Hezly R.

Everyday Champion, Hezly, was flying high in her favorite GK gymnastics leotard at the New Jersey Gym Fest in May! This sensational starlit is flawless as she flips around the uneven bars.  Her mother tells GK, "My daughter loves to wear this awesome leotard. Thank you, GK Elite!"

Hezly is unforgettable in our Classic Nylon/Spandex Tank Leotard 2012 in Royal Blue. She couldn't get enough of the perfect fit that allowed her to easily flip through the air without gaping, bunching, or pulling on her tiny frame. The material was so soft against her skin and kept her cool and comfortable as she performed her routine. She personalized this gymnastics leotard with white embroidery stitched across the front. 

Love the latest twist on our classic girl's leotard?  You can embellish this tank leo with Sequinz for an extra shine. For  maximum sparkle, choose our SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  Their patented nine facet cut crystals with platinum foil backing creates a fire and brilliance unmatched in the industry.

Support The Company That Supports Your Sport

When you hear the name "GK Elite" you most likely think of one of the following: gymnastics leotards, Gabrielle Douglas, Aly Raisman, or even sparkly gymnastics apparel, but perhaps you are unaware that behind the Olympic champions and sensational gymnastics apparel is a company that gives back to your sport.

GK is passionate about the sport of gymnastics and we are proud of our partnerships with USA Gymnastics and Under Armour, to outfit the Olympic and National Teams. Did you know that GK donates all the apparel, which the equivalent of over $3,000,000 in product, to the Junior Olympic Program for all disciplines, as well as TOPS, East/West Championships and Nastia Liukin Cup, in addition to various developmental programs? GK also donates thousands of dollars to Breast Cancer Research and Grants, through Unite for HER, a non-profit organization that directly benefits gymnastic athletes and coaches, affected by Breast Cancer. We are dedicated to building the sport of gymnastics, making the athletes better and providing the apparel to create champions.

In 1981, GK was founded with one goal in mind: to support the sport of gymnastics by providing the very best apparel for them to succeed. Carter Cheskey, Executive Vice President, explains why GK is the choice of champions everywhere; "our fit is our secret recipe. We actually have a propriety fit formula that none of our competitors have. In gymnastics, you can’t afford to have a wardrobe malfunction. In a given competitive season we outfit thousands of gymnasts, and we’ve got hundreds of styles, because no one wants to look like every other girl in the gym." That desire to be the best for the best still guides GK as we continue to look for opportunities to give back to the sport of gymnastics. We want to thank you for supporting the company that supports your sport.

Ebee Price and Kyla Ross Take Over Pacific Rim Championships In Under Armour Leotards

This year's Pacific Rim Championship in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada proved to be a huge success, once again, for USA Gymnastics teams!

Ellie Black, Ebee Price and Kyla Ross at Pac Rim Championships

Congratulations to Ebee Price and Kyla Ross on their top Senior, individual and All-Around scores. Price's All-Around score of 59.900 put her in the Gold with just 1.200 points above Ross, who placed second.

The talk of the championship was Price's floor exercise, featured below, where her highly technical routine looked like a walk in the park. Afterwards, she commented that this was the highlight of the competition for her. She was also very excited she was able to lead her team to win the All-Around, while winning three out of four individual event gold medals in a competition where she has never before competed. When interviewed, Price recognized the good nature of the spectators, praising them for enjoying the entire competition as a whole, instead of rooting for one gymnast over another.

Pulling through the ranks in the Junior Division, Bailie Key gave fellow gymnasts a run for their money, as well. Her performances earned her three individual Gold Medals, an All-Around Gold, and a team Gold Medal. She's one to keep your eye on in the upcoming years.

All of the women from Team USA competed in an elegant Under Armour competition leotard, designed specifically for their team events. To learn more about Under Armour leotards, and specifically about Team USA's leos, check out our post about Team USA at Jesolo Trophy.

Fun Times and GK Leotards at the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational

Kalon Ludvigson had a fabulous turnout this year at his annual Invitational where athletes had an opportunity to meet with Kalon for the first time since his injury in August. Prior to the event, we briefly recapped Kalon's life and his accomplishments. You can read about them at GK is Proud to Sponsor the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational. If you are interested in helping Kalon with his recovery, he is still accepting donations from The Kalon Ludvigson Fund to offset the cost of his treatments and necessary equipment.

What we saw this year at the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational was an amazing rally of support for a friend, peer and hero. The gymnastics meet that began its tradition 4 years ago by an athlete who is adored by many for his talent, comradery and good looks is now an event to support that same athlete that we have come to love over the course of his career. This year, the event attracted professional and aspiring gymnasts alike from across the country. For fans, this meant that Salt Lake City was the place to be. Below you'll see many familiar faces, alongside of Kalon, meeting with fans.

Attire on the mats varied from sparkly tank leotards to formal long sleeve competition leotards. Both of the styles represented below are stocked by GK for immediate purchase. The Gypsy Flyers from Gleason's in Minnesota are wearing a Mystique Low Scoop Neck Leotard 3619 with their team logo added to the front. This beautiful Electric Turquoise color looks great on everyone, and the design offers an athletic and supportive square back that the girls love.

The Northern Star Bounders look fantastic in their Classic Leotard With Bold Design 5838ST. This is a stock leotard that can be purchased as is in Red and Black Mystique with White Sparkle Hologram design outlines and Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS highlights. However, if you love the style and want to add your own personal touch to the design, it's also customizable! Jewels, stock or custom, sequinz, applique embroidery or imprinting all leave their mark on this competitive leotard in a creative, unique way. The Northern Star Bounders men blend nicely with the group, competing in Under Armour Force 6001. Made by GK, the Red and Black Nylon/Spandex and Red Techmesh in this men's gymnastics competition shirt features the same shades as the ladies' Red and Black Mystique, without the sparkle. The design, available in both mens and kids sizes, looks great on the male gymnasts. It's paired with a UA In Stock Men's Gymnastics Short 6003 in Red. All of the Kalon Invite athletes from Northern Star Bounders look fabulous!

We enjoyed taking part in the 2014 Kalon Ludvigson Invitational, and look forward to seeing Kalon's recovery progress next year. That begs the question, what will you wear for the 5th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitation? Will you compete in an in stock leotard, men's GK competition or UA Competition Shirt, or will you take the plunge and Special Order your competitive team wear? Either way, we look forward to seeing all of our GK Champions enjoying their sport.

GK. Choice of Champions.

Everyday German Gymnastics Champion, Madeleine Owen, Competes in GK Competition Leotards

Gymnastics champion, Madeleine Owen, from Bochum, German, loves to compete in her GK 3/4 sleeve gymnastics leotard! She trains at Gymnastics Center Harpener Heide to compete with the best, perform her best and to be the best. During her competition at WTB-Landescup, Madeleine chose to portray this feeling of greatness by wearing a brand that gives her a great fit, superior comfort, and a professional leotard design, GK.

Madeleine chose a classic, high neck Dramatic Asymmetrical Competition Leotard 9562. This leo matches Maddi's fierce yet graceful personality with its Red, Black and White Mystique unique style lines that shimmer under the fluorescent lights of the gym, complimenting Maddi's natural glow and technical skill level. No competition leotard is ever complete anymore without jewels, and Maddi chose to adorn her 3/4 length leo with Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS throughout the torso, neckline, sleeves and back of her leo to glisten from every angle.

All around the world, GK is known as the premier manufacturer of gymnastics apparel, and our reputation is not without merit. We offer only the best in jewels, fabrics, and designs for an unprecedented fit and finish suited for champions. Don't take our word for it though, try our GK gymnastics leotards out for yourself. We promise not to disappoint you.

New Jersey State Championships Decorated with GK and Under Armour Leotards

The floor of the New Jersey Level 8, 9 and 10 State Gymnastics Championships was a glowing display for GK last weekend! SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS lit up the floor on an array of teams wearing various GK styles. We're undecided as to which style was our favorite, so we'll let you be the judge.

www.gkelite.com/Bright Stars Gymnastics of Egg Harbor Township, NJ competed in our Dramatic Intersecting Competition Leotard 3532. They special ordered this eye-catching competition leo to include swirling design lines of White Sparkle Hologram and Sunshine Mystique on top of their shimmering Cherry Mystique competition garment. They adjusted the sleeves to a 3/4 length and added Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS to the cuffs, left sleeve and the White Hologram swirling line design, in addition to the small logo to insure a sparkling routine. We especially love that they paired their GK Leo with matching, bright orange shoes. 

Competitors from Randolph Gymnastics of Randolph, NJ were beautiful and feminine in their special order design of our Cascading Ribbon Gymnastics Leotard 7557. This is a faux sweetheart style, somewhat in disguise. The Violet Slither lower body and and Black Mesh upper body is overlapped with an edgy ribbon pattern in Seaglass Sparkle Hologram and an abundance of Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS along the neckline and over the ribbon detail for a mystical look. The combination works well together, and we adore the look.  

The Classic Sweetheart Competition Leotard 7545 looked very regal on Action Gymnastics from Howell, NJ. Their Berry Mystique upper body and arms are lined with Black Mesh and adorned with Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS all around, creating a deep and shimmering color. Its the perfect topping to their Black Mystique Lower body, frosted around the cuffs and sweetheart top with heavily packed, Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. Together, the details selected so carefully by Action Gymnastics, delivered a spectacular look, and Action was proud to show it off.

Our Under Armour Collection of competition leotards also offers a sweetheart style, and Rebound Gymnastics, from Marlboro, NJ wears it well. Their Under Armour Elegance 6701 is a style inspired by the National Team leotard worn at the 2013 Jesolo Trophy. Sewn with Seaglass Sparkle Hologram fabric, this shimmering silhouette offers a contrasting, Black Slither, with Black Mesh lining on the shoulders and arms. Its featured faux halter style lines in heat transferred packed Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS compliments the style and looks fabulous with Rebound's custom Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that embellishment the sleeves with curvy leaf shapes, sparkling cuffs and their name, Rebound, scripted along the arm. What a gorgeous combo!

The next time you see a leotard style that you love, look it up on our Special Order Design Studio and make it your own by selecting your preference of fabrics, colors and jewels. For assistance, many of these featured teams contacted our New Jersey Sales Representative, Colleen Patton, to bring their design together. Your local GK Representative is happy to share their expertise in fit, style and design to give you a leotard that's fit for champions.

Under Armour Leotard Spotted on Olympic Champion Victoria Moors

We love seeing world renowned gymnasts wearing Under Amour in practice! Victoria Moors is a 2012 Canadian Olympian who practices in Under Armour at Canada's #1 Gymnastics Club, Dynamo Gymnastics.

The current All-Around Elite Canadian Champion, Victoria Moors, is pictured to the left practicing in UA Dedication 6307. This elegant Under Armour tank leo fuses the GK 4-way stretch, shimmering Black Mystique fabric with beautiful Passion Mystique accents of curvaceous piping along the torso, and simple, bold style lines below the shoulder blades.

Bermuda National Team Competes in Under Armour Leotards

What a delight is was to see the Bermuda National Senior team from St. David's wearing Under Armour at the IGI Chicago Style Gymnastics Meet this February! The athletes on the Bermuda National Team are a distinguished group of athletes from Bermuda, selected to train in the Bermuda Gymnastics Association's national training center to compete at international competitions around the globe. The IGI Meet is a Nastia Liukin qualifier meet, and it's also the largest women's national invitational gymnastics meet in the world, so it's really no surprise that our GK Representatives, Wendy and Judy, would find them competing on this day. It was quite an honor, though! Other meet locations on their itinerary for this year include Bermuda, Scottland, Brazil, China and Mexico. Their dedication to the sport of gymnastics literally takes them around the world, and they travel in style, in Under Armour!

Bermuda gymnasts shown above proudly unite in their Under Armour Strength 6300 leotards. This v neck tank gymnastics leotard features a sporty design in Steel Mystique and Black Nylon/Spandex. The side panels are adorned with Black Techmesh that keeps the girls cool and comfortable, and Berry Mystique symmetrical wave side panels and piping to give them a feminine look. Along with the Under Armour Tank Leotard styles displayed at the GK booth by Wendy and Judy, as shown on the right, Under Armour competitive leotards are also available online.

Whether you're competing at an international invitational on the Historic Navy Pier in Chicago or at a small meet in your home town, be prepared beyond your practiced skills. Always look and feel your best in Under Armour.
