Life in a Leo Episode 5: Mariah Merkle aka @Triplefull and Crossfit stud!

What a fun interview...this week we got to know Mariah Merkle a bit better.  You probably know her as @Triplefull on Instagram where she has over 124000 followers.  Mariah got her start in gymnastics at the age of 8 and competed for a handful of years before deciding she wanted to try Crossfit. Mariah is still in high school, she coaches gymnastics, she trains and competes in Crossfit and she manages an incredible Instagram account. This is one focused lady! Some of Mariah's best edits are of the top elite athletes in the USA. She also loves making hilarious fail videos. Come on, we all know we've had those moments. If you want to be featured in one of Mariah's future edits, you can DM her on Instagram and send her your videos.  

Don't forget to send us your Best Things in the Gym! You can either send a voice memo (this is preferred) or just write an email and I will read it over the air. There is so much to celebrate in the sport of gymnastics and we want to highlight it. 

If you have any other feedback you want to share, we want to hear it! You can either leave comments here or email me, rebecca@leotard.com. 

Hope everyone has a great #meetweekend and don't forget to point your toes!

xo,

Rebecca

Thank you so much to everyone that answered my question on Instagram regarding topics you want to hear on the show. This week I explore a topic suggested by @abriannagallo on time management. 
I talk about what I did when I was still a gymnast, some of the tools I use now as an adult, and ways to plan your time. Check out monday.com/ if you want to learn more about one of the tools I live by these days. And remember, we are all human and mistakes happen. We can't always plan our time perfectly, so be kind to yourself and learn what works for you!
Good luck to everyone competing this weekend. Hope you have a great meet! And good luck to Team USA at World Championships. Can't wait to watch all the amazing athletes in Doha. 
If you want more info or have other ideas, you can reach us on Instagram - @Rebeccasmomleo or by email - rebecca@leotard.com. Hope you have a great weekend and don't forget to point your toes!

Life in a Leo Episode 35: Interview with Elodie Bazin

October 05, 2018

This was so much fun. I got to interview one of my new co-workers who grew up doing gymnastics in France! It was great to learn a little bit about what that was like, her favorite event, her disgusting competition leotard, and some great advice for young gymnasts. 
It was a little challenging at times with the language barrier, but we figured it out. Let us know what you think? Have you ever done gymnastics in a different country? What was it like and what did you learn? Did you or are you growing up outside of the USA? How is gymnastics different? Let us know -Rebecca@leotard.com. We hope to hear from you!
Everyone competing this weekend, good luck, stay focused, have fun and don't forget to point your toes! Thanks for listening!!
