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

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 :) 

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.
