Life in a Leo Episode 10: Interview with Lauren Hopkins of the Gymternet

This week we interviewed Lauren Hopkins, Editor-in-Chief of the Gymternet. She aims to bring the very best coverage, interviews, features, histories, and opinion pieces from the people who really “get” gym – other gym fans.

As a journalist, Lauren has covered every elite competition on U.S. soil in addition to all major international competitions like world championships and the Olympic Games. Lauren also worked as an associate producer for NBC’s live digital Olympic Games coverage, for which she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Trans-Media Sports Coverage as part of the NBCOlympics.com team, and her writing has been featured in publications around the world, including most recently in the Huffington Post. She has written two young adult novels about elite gymnastics, with a third on the way in 2017.

A New England native, Lauren received her BA in History at Columbia University in 2014. She lives in New York City. [Twitter]

Life in a Leo Episode 14: Interview with some UC Davis Alumni

April 20, 2018

This is a very special episode. It's the first time I interviewed a group of people. In addition, these were three of my teammates at UC Davis. Meghan was two years ahead of me and Flora and Lynn was a year younger. We discuss our growth in the sport throughout our time in college, the camaraderie of our team and how we never fully got closer even after we graduated. We also discuss some of our most memorable moments and leotards. It was so fun talking to these ladies and learning more about how gymnastics has impacted and influenced their lives. I hope you enjoy it!

Life in a Leo Episode 12: Some thoughts on Execution

April 06, 2018

Ever wonder why your routine scored an 8.1 and your goal was a 9.0? Maybe it's the execution...I have been a judge for 22 years. I provide a little insight into what judges are looking for on all four events. I also provide some anecdotes from my experience as a gymnast. Let us know what you think? We hope to hear from you. 

If you want to share your Best Things in the Gym, please email me, rebecca@leotard.com or send me a DM on Instagram, @rebeccasmomleo or use the hashtag #bestthingsinthegym. We would love to share your success on our show. Don't be afraid to brag :) 

Hope everyone competing this weekend has a great meet. Can't wait to see all the NCAA regional competitions (Go Bruins). Keep training hard, stay positive and don't forget to point your toes.
