T&T Gymnast Flies in GK Leotard

Is it possible for a girl to fly?  If you are Charlotte Drury, the answer is YES! Charlotte, a Senior Elite Trampolinist and member of the USA Gymnastics National T&T Team knows what it takes to achieve her level of success and stands by the fact that GK truly is the Choice of Champions.

For any trampolinist, the need for leotards to fit long, slender, athletic body types is a necessity, and if a leo doesn't fit like a GK, then it has no business in the high-intensity world of T&T. However, for this 16-year-old from Laguna Niguel, there is one more extremely important factor... if you are going to win, WIN IN STYLE! Charlotte loves the flattering GK leotard designs and the comfort they provide. 

Charlotte was very excited to design a competition leotard for this year and the help she received from her GK Gymnastics Sales Rep, Kiana Ross, made the process easy and fun.  Charlotte's leotard is GK's Stunning Swirl Competition Leotard 9549, a long sleeve gymnastics leo featuring a classic neckline & scoop back with exquisite swirl design on the bodice and back.  Charlotte modified the sleeves to a comfortable 3/4 length and then chose White Mystique, Navy Mystique, and Steel Mystique fabrics.  The combination is beautiful and Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS add the perfect finishing touch. 

Charlotte and her teammates at World Elite Gymnastics have an exciting road ahead and GK is exited & proud to be a part of it and will be cheering them on along the way!

GK Catches Up with Team USA Gold Medalist, Kyla Ross

At a recent photo shoot for the 2013 catalog featuring women's competitive gymnastics leotards, GK had the chance to sit & chat with Kyla Ross, member of the gold medal winning "Fierce Five" Women's Gymnastics Team.

GK: Congrats on bringing home Gold for Team USA!  What was it like to represent Team USA in London?

Kyla: Getting to go out there and compete, not only for yourself, but for Team USA, was such an honor, knowing that everyone is supporting you.  We didn’t even realize until we got home how many people were watching the Olympics, supporting us, and cheering us on.  It was a huge deal.

GK: How has your life changed now that you’re an Olympian?

Kyla: The first few months when I got back were kind of hectic.  We were doing so much and going so many places.  But now, it’s kind of cooled down and I’ve been back to school and back in the gym training.

GK: You’ve had so many great experiences since London, what was your most memorable?

Kyla: Definitely, meeting President Obama was a huge honor!  It was amazing to be in the oval office and see everything and to be able to meet the President.

GK: Now that the Olympics are over, what are you focused on?

Kyla: I am focused on training and I’m looking forward to competing this season and hopefully bringing something new to the table. 

GK: So, do you plan to compete next season at Championships?

Kyla: Yes, I’m planning on competing in championships and getting out there with everyone else, enjoy it, and do my best.

GK: What advice would you give to your fans?

Kyla: To all my fans, I would say to reach your goals, you always have to focus and do your best.  Some days might be tough, but you just have to keep training hard in the gym and be dedicated to your sport.

GK wishes Kyla the best of luck this gymnastics season.  Stay tuned to the GK Gymnastics Blog for announcements regarding the 2013 Women's Competitive Catalog.  There's still time to shop the 2012 Catalog here.

GK Gymnastics Leotards in Action on The Kellogg's Tour

Next stop on the Kellogg's Tour - the Maverick Center in West Valley City, Utah on September 27!   If you are going - you'll see this GK gymnastics leotard showcased by the likes of the Fierce Five and other cast members in a group number.  It is a patriotic, long sleeved, classic gymnastics leotard reminiscent of the 2012 USA Gymnastics leotard from the summer games. 

The Stars & Stripes summer games leotard was - by far - the favorite among fans who tweeted and blogged about their love of the nostalgic design with a modern twist.  The fact that they are Made in the USA makes them that much better. 

The Kellogg's Tour version of the Stars & Stripes leo is a sublimated print on tricot fabric.  

Check out Aly Raisman below in one of her beautiful poses from her Gold Medal winning floor routine.

Kendrick Kippettes Gets "Never Ending" Support from GK

In 2007, The Kendrick Kippettes were established as Philadelphia's very first non-profit, USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic gymnastics program providing a gymnastic opportunity for inner-city and urban-based children.  The city-subsidized program thrives on fundraising, stipends, grants, and the unending support and guidance of Kendrick Recreation Center Supervisor, Bill Malizia, and Program Director, Janette Santore. 

At Kendrick, gymnastics instructors dedicate a multitude of volunteer hours to ensure that gymnasts have the opportunity to acquire a heightened sense of self-confidence, tenacity, perseverance, accountability, and the capacity to nurture healthy relationships with peers, program leaders, and contributing members of the community.  The result has been the delivery of a boundless experience across athletic challenges, healthy competition, relationship management, a results-driven culture, and goal-oriented curriculum. 

The Kippettes currently train gymnasts who compete across USAG levels 3-9 and a Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Competitive Gymnastics program.  In addition, Kendrick provides safe and healthy gymnastics instruction to more than 150 recreational participants. GK is proud to be the choice supplier of gymnastic workout leotards, competitive leotards, and warm ups for this awesome program.

Saranne Miller, Head Coach & Team Coordinator at Kendrick Kippettes said, “When I founded the Kippettes Gymnastics Team in 2007, I was overwhelmed with the administrative tasks of establishing Philadelphia’s first non-profit USAG competitive team. But, when it came to gymnastics leotards, GK Elite took the weight off of my shoulders. From leotard design to sizing to payment processes, and finally placing my order, GK representatives guided me through every step. I was treated as an individual, rather than one of a million customers. When I expressed concern over colors and fabrics, a GK representative was at the other end of the line ready to counsel me on my choices. The quality of the products, the timely delivery, and the never-ending support of the GK staff has made gymnastic leotard supply for the Kippettes the least of my worries. Thank you GK! We wouldn’t be who we are without our snazzy GK leos!”

Check out this awesome video about the Kippettes ...

We can't wait to see what the Kippettes accomplish this season in gymnastics!  Thank you for allowing GK to be a part of your success!

2012 USA Gymnastics Leotards by Elite Sportswear - Stars & Stripes

Some said they saved the best for last!  The Stars & Stripes USA Gymnastics leotard made its appearance at the Women's Event Finals for Beam and Floor.  The patriotic leo was a lucky one for GK Champion Aly Raisman who took the Gold Medal on Floor and the Bronze Medal on Beam. 

The Stars & Stripe leo is an example of a new innovation in gymnastics leotards called sublimation where designs are digitally printed on poly/spandex fabrics.

This digital printing is what provided the shooting star effect on the leo.  Ruby, Clear, and Navy SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS then take the digital print to the next level adding brilliance and sparkle.


Now you can show your team spirit with Pride AS429 from the Everyday Champions Special Edition Catalog - the only authorized source for USA Gymnastics replica leotards.  

Pride features the same stylized stars and stripes poly/spandex design, printed on a classic tank gymnastics leotard featuring the iconic embroidered National Team circle of stars logo.  This leotard will be available through December 30, 2012.
