Life in a Leo Episode 12: Some thoughts on Execution

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 some 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.

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.

Life in a Leo Episode 23: Part 2 interview with JaNay, Peng and Deanna

June 22, 2018

Here is part two of my interview with JaNay Honest, Christine Peng Peng Lee and Deanna Hong, the incredible trio that hosted Bruin Banter this season (can you tell, I'm obsessed). This week we go into more detail about their time as Bruins, their most memorable gymnastics moments and what Life in a leo means to them. I loved this interview and can't wait to hear what you think!! 

Also, if you are visiting San Diego and want to catch Peng in her new gig, visit Sea World and make sure to check out the IllumiNight Show

Good luck to all the judges out there who are testing this summer. I hope you are getting in lots of study time and learning all those new composition formulas. 

Finally, in the words of Peng, JaNay and Deanna, be true to who you are, stay positive and have fun and of course, don’t forget to point your toes.

Life in a leo Episode 22: Part 1 interview with a mystery trio

June 15, 2018

It's not a mystery anymore...

This week I got to speak with the trio that put together Bruin Banter this past NCAA gymnastics season, JaNay Honest, Christine Peng Peng Lee, and Deanna Hong. youtu.be/wp0_PdKzYVg Just one of the few things these women are known for. 

We discuss their career in gymnastics prior to UCLA, how they made their way to UCLA and of course their favorite and most memorable leotards. There was so much to discuss, so we only just start to scratch the surface of our conversation. Stay tuned for part 2 next week when we learn more about Bruin Banter, what it's like to have a coach like Miss Val and what Life in a leo means to each of these amazing women. 

Please let us know what you think? We want to hear from you and learn more about our audience. You can always reach out over email. I'm rebecca@leotard.com or you can find us on Instagram and message us there @Rebeccasmomleo

Keep having fun out there, working hard, and don't forget to point your toes! xo

Life in a Leo Episode 21: How to care for your leotards
Life in a Leo Episode 21: How to care for your leotards

June 10, 2018

Every week we are in and out of the gym training our butts off. We live in our leotards and sometimes we forget how to best care for them. This week I provide some advice on how to best take care of your leotards, especially the fancy competition ones that cost tons of money. These are the things you need to do to make sure the white stays white, the beads stay in place and the fabric remains soft and comfortable for you and all the athletes that you pass the leos down to after you. *

If you have any questions or want more information on the products we recommend, you can email me at rebecca@leotard.com. 

Shout outs this week go to @gymnastabrianna and @gymnast.soof. Keep up the great work ladies! You are doing awesome things out there. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend, keep training hard, cleaning your leotards and don't forget to point your toes ;)
