YORK, Pa. – March 22, 2016 – Alpha Factor Gymnastics, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of gymnastics apparel, is integrating the Aerials by Alpha Factor training apparel line with the competitive apparel line under the same brand name: Alpha Factor. With this new structure, gymnasts can now compete and train with confidence. Alpha Factor Gymnastics will continue to share the best products and most reliable service to gymnasts around the globe.
The wait is over! Alpha Factor’s 2015/2016 competitive line is now available, and we believe that you’ll be just as excited about it as we are. Dream big, work hard, stay focused, and rest assured that we’ve got your back. When you choose Alpha Factor, you’re choosing to surround yourself with a strong team- people that share a common desire to work together and achieve great results. We believe in you and are committed to your success.
Spring has arrived and if you’re like many gym owners and coaches you’re starting to gear up for summer. The sun will shine, school will be out and with that comes campers! Whether you’re planning a special week-long team event, thinking about your recreational campers, or just want to offer some new and refreshing styles to your customers, Aerials by Alpha Factor’s Buy With Confidence Program is a risk free, no money down option for you to maximize your profits this summer. You choose the styles you’d like to receive (or your Relationship Manager is more than happy to do it for you), keep the items in your pro-shop for 60 days, and send back any unsold items at the end of your term. It’s as easy as that!
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.
In a world that’s increasingly high-tech, with so many impersonal interactions taking place via email, text messages and social media, it’s nice to take a step back and connect with people on a personal level. Alpha Factor’s relationship managers do just that.
I was a mediocre gymnast. Headstrong and opinionated, I did things my own way. I lacked that certain “coachability” and single-minded drive that most, if not all accomplished gymnasts possess. But from the moment I first stepped into the gym at 4 years old I fell in love. Since then, I have always in some way or another been involved with the sport of gymnastics.
I can remember everything about the night I fell in love with gymnastics. I was sitting on the floor in my parents’ TV room with my eyes glued to the television. The Magnificent Seven were marching in. Dominique Moceanu became my idol in a matter of seconds. Watching her was like watching a version of myself I didn’t know existed yet. I immediately screamed to my mother “I WANT TO DO THAT.”
Gymnastics has been a major part of my life for as long as I can remember. I am excited to be able to continue using my gymnastics expertise while working for such a great company. Joining the Alpha Factor family in January 2014 has been a true blessing and I am very thankful to be a part of a company that matches my love and passion for the sport.
I have been involved with the sport of gymnastics since before I was born. My mother was a gymnast, a gymnastics coach, and has been judging the sport for over 25 years. Gymnastics is the only sports I have ever done. The sport is in my blood and it is a true passion of mine. I started competing at the age of 6 at World Olympic Gymnastics Academy in Plano, TX, home of two Olympic champions, Carly Patterson and Nastia Liukin. I had lost my love of the sport around the age of 14, and made the difficult decision to leave my current gym to join a new club. This decision turned out to be the best decision of my club gymnastics career.
At the age of 2 I started dancing at my mother’s studio, Pennsport School of Dance, located in South Philadelphia. I absolutely loved it, until we started incorporating gymnastics into the class and realized that I no longer wanted to be a ballerina, I wanted to be a gymnast. At the age of 3 my parents brought me to a gym in New Jersey called Cherry Hill Gymnastics, and I became absolutely obsessed with the sport. Competing in level 5 was not what I had hoped for however, and I was not this superstar I imagined myself to be. I was lucky to even receive a medal, but I still craved and loved competing. The summer of 1998 I attended a gymnastics camp in Allentown, Pennsylvania at Parkettes Gymnastics and it was there that my Olympic dream was born.
