The 2015 competition season is in full swing, and if you’re like many gyms across the country you’re hosting at least one event this year. Don’t overlook the opportunity to offer gymnasts and their families the convenience and value of quality, affordable leotards and apparel, as well as bring in some additional revenue for your gym! Meets are an excellent time to have products available for guests to purchase, and during the down times they’ll appreciate having interesting and innovative items to browse through. Not to mention, smaller gift items can provide an excellent opportunity for friends and family to quickly select a gift as a way to say “great job!” to the gymnast they came to support.
The words “Aspire, Achieve, Repeat…” greet you as you turn into the parking lot of Legacy Gymnastics Center in Maitland, FL, and eight years ago Lisa Winstead set out to do just that. Aimed at providing a positive, competitive environment for Central Florida gymnasts, she wanted to prove that you don’t have to use fear, intimidation, and belittling to succeed. “My first love was basketball” says Lisa, who coached a junior high girls’ team before transitioning in to the world of gymnastics. Bringing her children to basketball practice she realized that despite her best efforts, they would rather do cartwheels on the sidelines than dribble a ball. Over the years she saw them excel as athletes, but was dissatisfied with the environment in which they did so. It was then that she set out to provide a nurturing, compassionate place for children to succeed not only as gymnasts but also in life.
