Life in a Leo Episode 13: Interview with Taylor Gordon

This week I wanted to bring you something a little different. I got the chance to interview my friend, Taylor Gordon.

Taylor is a professional dancer. She started dancing from the time she could walk, leaving home at the age of 15 to train at the Rock School in Philadelphia. Taylor moved to NYC where she continued to perfect her craft and grow as a performer. Taylor has performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Radio City Music Hall, off-Broadway, on tour, and on television. To learn more about Taylor and watch some clips of her performing, check out her website,www.taylorgordononline.com. 

Good luck to everyone competing this weekend! Keep training hard and don't forget to point your toes!

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 :)

Blakley is an 8-year-old Level 4 gymnast at National Gymnastics Training Center in Orange County, CA.  She has been doing gymnastics since she was 1 year old, and has been competing for 3 years.  Blakley is known for being a fearless daredevil and was awarded the "Mini Powerhouse" award at Woodward last summer.  She's been known to spend her free time making conditioning routines and checklists for her and her little sister to do at home.  Blakley loved her time at UCLA Gymnastics Camp last summer and can't wait to return this year.  She is coached by Debra McCurdy, who also used to coach Rebecca of Rebecca's Mom :)

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend! Keep training hard and don't forget to point your toes.
