Leesburg, VA (November 25, 2016) – APEX Gymnastics is pleased to honor Amy Eck as their Senior Spotlight Gymnast for the month of November.
How many years have you been at APEX? 13
Favorite memory from your years at APEX?
My favorite memory from APEX would probably have to be when I caught my tkatchev on bars for the first time. I don’t just love that because of how accomplished I felt and how exhilarating it was, but how excited my teammates were for me. I always re-watch the video because you can hear everybody screaming for me and a few people ran down the vault runway and tackled me. I just love the sense of team at APEX and how your teammates (and coaches) become your best friends and your family.
Your Favorite Meet? Emerald City Classic and Pink Invitational
Which skill was the toughest for you to learn? Giants in level 7 (bars), back handspring back tuck in level 10 (beam)
What do you have planned for the future? I plan to do collegiate gymnastics and major in some kind of exercise science. I also plan to earn a Master’s degree in business. I have not decided what career I would like to pursue, but I know that I want to do something along the lines of health, fitness, and nutrition.
Do you have any words of advice for younger gymnasts?
Love what you do and don’t be too hard on yourself. I have always been hard on myself, so, from experience, I can say that just enjoying what you’re doing is so much better than beating yourself up over the smallest things. Also, have fun with the people around you, because they will become your best friends in the world. Don’t take gymnastics or your friends for granted.
