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

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 ;)

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
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!
