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 33: Interview with Sophie Kleinberg
Life in a Leo Episode 33: Interview with Sophie Kleinberg

September 07, 2018

Happy Friday and welcome to #Lifeinaleo! We hope you enjoy this week's interview with Sophie Kleinberg. Sophie is training level 10 at a small gym in NYC. She started gymnastics at 7 years old after someone commented on how well she did cartwheels. Once she started training she caught the bug and was hooked. I'm sure there are a lot of things you can relate to as a gymnast in this episode. I know I certainly did. We can't wait to see how things work out for you in your first season as a level 10. Good luck and keep up all the hard work. 
If you want to share any ideas with us about the show, we would love to hear from you. You can reach me at rebecca@leotard.com. 
Finally, we would love it if you would vote for our pink leotard in the Flo Gymnastics lovely leo competition. www.flogymnastics.com/articles/6246901-lovely-leos-2018-us-gymnastics-championships-day-2 
Thank you so much! Hope you have a great weekend, enjoy being back in school and don't forget to point your toes!

Life in a Leo Episode 32: Goal setting & my USAG Nationals experience

August 31, 2018

Sorry, there was no episode last week. I'm working on figuring out how to budget my time and continue publishing this show. Thank you to everyone for tuning in and sharing your support. It means a lot. 
This week I discuss some experiences with goal setting as a gymnast. I provide a little insight into using a technique called SMART. You can learn more just by searching online if you're interested. 
I also share some of my thoughts about National Championships this year. It was so awesome seeing Margzetta wear one of our UCLA Gymnastics leotards as well as the ladies from MG Elite who competed in our leos on both days. If you liked our leos, Flo Gymnastics is having a contest right now to vote for your fave. Here's the link. If you can, please vote for the MG Elite leo. Thank you so much!

A huge thank you to Maggie for thinking of us and giving us the opportunity to design her leos!
