Aly Raisman Tells GK About Her Comeback at the 2015 Jesolo Trophy

Alexandra Raisman set out to make a successful comeback and she did just that. At the 2015 Jesolo Trophy, Aly received the All Around and Floor Exercise bronze medal. She also just recently released her 2015 Summer Signature Leotard Collection by GK. We were able to catch up with her and hear first hand how it feels to be back on the competition floor.  

Alexandra Raisman Loyalty Leotard by GKGK:  Congratulations on placing third on the floor and All Around at the Jesolo Trophy!  It was awesome seeing you back in action. How does it feel to be back on the competition floor?
AR: Thank you. It felt awesome! I was so excited and happy to be back out there. It was emotional to hear the national anthem and hear my name announced before each event! I loved it.

GK:  Tell us how competing feels different now than the last time you were training?
AR: Competing at this competition felt the same as before. The only difference is that I felt more confident this time around because of having the experience of competing at the Olympics.

GK:  Can you tell us about your training leading up to your comeback at Jesolo Trophy?
AR: I continued with the same training and similar schedule that I maintained before in 2012. I understand that the girls competing now are talented and hard working, making the 2016 Olympic team will be difficult, but I'm hoping that my continued dedication to the sport of gymnastics will pay off like it did before.

GK:  What is your favorite part about attending National Team Camp at the Ranch?
AR: I feel like I am constantly improving. Every time I go, I feel stronger and more confident than the last time I was there. Although it is hard and exhausting, the training camps are crucial to our success.

GK:  What did you miss most about competing?
AR: I missed the feeling of accomplishment. It feels nice to know that the hard work paid off! I also really missed the bond that I share with the other girls out there on the floor.


GK:  What did you miss least?
AR: I hate waiting my turn. I wish I could go first on every single event because I get so anxious and impatient. If I am towards the end of the list to compete, I often try and take my mind off of my routine so I don't over think it and psych myself out.

GK:  If everything continues to go well for you, what’s next?
AR: I can only take things a day at a time. I have training camp at the end of this month, where I will continue to improve my flexibility and perfect my floor routine as much as possible!

GK:  We just released your new summer Aly Raisman signature leotard collection.  Tell us which styles are your favorites and why.
AR: I am so excited about this gymnastics apparel collection because it is fun, bright, sassy and has my favorite sublimated polytek material. The sublimated polytek fabric is extremely comfortable and doesn't show sweat, especially during long summer practices. My favorite leotard from this collection would have to be Loyalty. As the Olympic Games are quickly approaching, I think it is important to incorporate red, white and blue styles into my gymnastics leotard collection. I also love the new cheetah print and vibrant colors that are on the other three leotards and the gymnastics workout shorts. These will look amazing on the girls, especially once they have a nice summer tan. 

We are so excited to have GK Champion Aly Raisman a part of the family and wish her continued success in the sport of gymnastics. Shop her 2015 Spring Signature Leotard line to look and feel like an Elite.

Nastia Liukin Returns to the Competition Floor on Dancing With the Stars

The world is ready to see GK Champion, Nastia Liukin on the competition floor again, and quite frankly, so is she. In less than a week, this Olympic athlete will be performing on ABC's Dancing with the Stars starting on Monday, March 16, 2015. Partnered with five time season winner, Derek Hough, this dynamite duo is sure to shock spectators. 

Nastia Liukin on Dancing with the Stars

Nastia Liukin is known for her elegant poise and artistic routines on the gymnastics competition floor. Her athletic, slender figure and natural grace only enhances her chances of gaining nation wide recognition again as the star that shines brighter than the rest. Watch the full GK exclusive interview with Nastia Liukin on Dancing with the Stars below. 

When the opportunity to participate on Dancing with the Stars came up, Nastia was hesitant at first to sign on. Her immediate thought was school and how this will affect her schedule and dedication to her academics. Nastia Liukin is currently finishing up her junior year at NYU majoring in Sports Management. Her schedule for the next few weeks will consist of flying out to LA for the show on Monday and taking a red eye flight back that night to make it to class Tuesday morning. 

In a recent interview with GK, she tells us that one of the biggest adjustment from being a gymnast to a dancer is allowing her personality to shine through. She explains that competing in gymnastics is more stoic and serious than exposing a fun personality. However, getting the chance to design her own costumes should help make that transition a little easier and bring out her personality in more ways than one. She looks forward to how these designs will eventually translate into her GK gymnastics leotard line.

There are three ways to vote for Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough:

1. Vote via Phone

Under Armour Competitive Leotard Is Fit for Champions

The judges couldn't help but notice this co-op high school team from southeast Wisconsin as they walked into a 16 team meet earlier this year with a confidence that shattered all doubt who the champions are. What made them so different then the rest? The simple fact that these champions in training were sporting a new Under Armour gymnastics leotard. The moment they put on their competitive leotard, their focus instantly shifted to one central thought, "I'm here to win." This co-op team is ranked number one in the state and walked away from the meet with the gold medal, not to mention the two individual All Around gold and silver medals won by two seniors on the team. 

Under Armour Competitive Gymnastics Leotard Energy 6502 by GK

What makes this girl's competitive gymnastics leotard different than the rest? Let's start with the quality of 4-way stretch fabrics used to create this performance enhancing gymnastics leotard. Under Armour® uses only the finest, most durable fabrics that move with the athlete to keep their mind on their performance and off of wardrobe malfunctions. This Under Armour Energy Competitive Leotard 6502 features imperial purple and rainforest mystique with black mesh along the top and sleeves. White sparkle hologram trim outlines the steel mystique wrap around style lines. 

Next, the Under Armour® logo is a worldwide symbol of the best athletic apparel available. This gymnastics leotard is specifically designed to fit like a second skin while still maintaining a comfortable feel. The four thread overlock stitching results in the most durable gymnastics apparel in the industry. 

Finally, the over all design meets the need to balance an athletic appeal with elegant beauty. For example, examine how the faux racerback styling and strong style lines bring about a competitive edge that gives way to the glittering embellishments and delicate fabric choice for the sleeves. The black mesh top and diamond like clear Swarovski® crystals that are scattered throughout the 3/4 length sleeves, bodice, and make up the team name in the back add a certain amount of glamour to this girl's gymnastics leotard. 

In order to be the best, you have to compete in the best. Click here to view our Under Armour® gymnastics apparel, including tank and competitive leotards, and start becoming a champion in training today.

Sam Mikulak Keeps His Cool at the 2015 Winter Cup Challenge

Las Vegas hardly knew what hit them when some of the most talented male gymnasts in the nation arrived at the 2015 Winter Cup Challenge to vie for the gold. GK Champion, Sam Mikulak, was among these talented athletes representing the U.S. National Team in award winning style. His seemingly effortless execution on the pommel horse landed him in sixth place with just a .65 points away from bronze. 

Sam Mikulak at 2015 Winter Cup

Being born into a family of accomplished gymnasts, it was no surprise Sam's parents planted the love for gymnastics at a very young age. From the time he could walk, they were teaching him gymnastics skills. At age two, he began taking classes at SCATS in Orange County, CA. Now 20 years later, this Sr. National Team Member holds seven NCAA gold medals, represented the U.S. in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, and was a part of the 2014 World team bronze medalist, just to name a few. 2015 U.S. Men's National Gymnastics Team Under Armour Apparel

On the left, Sam's down to earth personality and refreshing sense of humor keeps him at ease as he prepares to compete. His confidence is through the roof as he sports the National Team performance enhancing Under Armour® gymnastics apparel. This navy and white spandex competition shirt is paired with our coordinating Under Armour Men's Spandex Shorts 6003 in navy. For his memorable pommel horse routine, he wore our clean cut UA Men's Spandex Gymnastics Pants 6004 in white. The custom National Team logo in a white and gold embroidery is applied to the center chest.

 

Congratulations, Sam on your impressive win at this year's Winter Cup Challenge! We look forward to witnessing your continued success in the years to come.

Gabrielle Douglas Gives GK the Latest Scoop

Between the long hours of training and finding inspiration for her next GK gymnastics tank leotard collection, we were able to catch up with Gabby Douglas to see what she has in store for 2015. 

Gabby Douglas Karma Tank Leotard E2707 by GKGK: What is your favorite GK Gabrielle Douglas leotard from your Spring Collection? And, why?
GB: It's always so hard to chose a favorite gymnastics spring leotard because I like them all so much, but I have to say that I enjoy wearing the Karma Tank LeotardI love all of the bright colors and the fun patterns that keep me energized when I'm training. 

GK: How many hours do you spend at the gym daily, and what do your workouts look like?
GB
The amount of time that I am in the gym depends on my training schedule for the day.  Three days a week I train for about six hours and three days I train for four hours.  All of my workouts are high intensity. I do a lot of exercises and conditioning which focus on flexibility and building strength.  I'm also working on all of my routines, so it takes a lot of hard work and dedication each and every day.

GK: When can your fans expect to see you compete again?
GB: I am planning to return to competition this year! I'm very excited about having the opportunity to compete for Team USA again. 
It's such an amazing feeling when you get to represent your country.

GK: What will you do to you prepare for your next big meet?
GB: It's very important that I stay healthy physically and mentally.  Years ago when I first started gymnastics, my mom taught me some valuable visualization skills.  I believe that you have to have faith and stay positive when you are striving for your goals.  I've also learned that there is no substitution for having total commitment.  If you want your dreams to come true, you have to be willing to give it everything you've got to achieve them.

GK: As you look forward toward Rio 2016, who is or what are your inspiration and drive?
GB
I am inspired by all of the stories that I hear when I meet new people. It's so beautiful when we impact one another for good.  This really motivates me to keep pursuing excellence in all that I do. And of course, my family inspires me daily!

GK: Do you have any fun projects coming up that we can share with our readers?
GBI don't really have any thing that I can share right now, but I'm looking forward to doing more things to help inspire others who are working towards their dreams too!

We are so proud of this GK Champion and all her hard work and dedication to the sport of gymnastics. Click here to train like this champion in Gabrielle Douglas' new signature leotard collection.

Hearing from Alexandra Raisman on Life, Leotards, and When She Will Compete Again

GK recently caught up with Aly Raisman to hear from her about her latest spring leotard collection. During the interview she also shared with us her favorite gymnastics skills, love for her fans, and when they can expect to see her on the competition floor again. 

Aly Raisman Training in Her GK Fuchsia Force Tank Leotard


GK: Where does your design inspiration come from with your latest Aly Raisman gymnastics leotards?
AR: Right now, my inspiration mostly comes from the celebrity red carpet. Since it's award season,  it's easy to look online and find inspiration from all the celebrity gowns.  I love finding innovative designs and looking for stylish patterns because I want gymnasts to feel confident and cute in my girl's gymnastics leotardsI really like the new gymnastics tank leotard collection I have created for spring, especially because of the bright colors used. My all time favorite leotard has to be the Atlantis Wave Tank Leotard. I love the combination of the bright blue and lime green. The best part about this workout leotard is that it does not show any sweat regardless of how long I spend at the gym! I'm also a fan of sublimation which is why we created the Aly Raisman Fuchsia Force Leotard (shown in the picture above). This girl's gymnastics leotard is a lightweight spandex material, making it a great choice for a hot day and the long hours of practice. 


GK: When can your fans expect to see you compete again?
AR: I am hoping to compete again in March at the Jesolo Trophy in Italy.

GK: You’re very involved in social media, how do you feel this has helped you as a gymnast?
AR: I love to be involved with my fans on social media. I really enjoy hearing feedback and getting new ideas from them about my gymnastics leotards.

GK: What is your favorite skill in gymnastics?
AR: My first pass on floor. It is very challenging but it feels good when I stick it.

GK: How do you feel about the potential of Olympic 2024 to be held in Boston?
AR: I think that the 2024 Olympics being held in Boston would be incredible. I would love to be as involved as possible and attend as many sporting events as I can. At the 2012 Olympics, I was only able to go to one event, the men's soccer final. I wasn't able to watch anything else because we were busy competing and most of the events were over before we finished. 

We are looking forward to seeing you once again on the competition floor in a stunning GK gymnastics leotard! Thank you for choosing GK gymnastics apparel to help enhance your performance while you train.
