Leesburg, VA (October 31, 2016) – APEX Gymnastics is pleased to honor Caitie Reyes as their Senior Spotlight Gymnast for the month of October.
How many years have you been at APEX?: 11
What was one of your favorite memories from your years at APEX?: One of y favorite memory happened about 4 years ago when I was on bars doing a routine. Mark was spotting me when I caught the bar from my overshoot to do a kip, and I accidently kicked him in the groin… The best part is that Melanie got it all on video!
What was your favorite meet?: Christmas on the Chesapeake was my favorite meet because it always falls on my birthday. Spending the day doing what I love with my teammates is the best way to celebrate.
Which skill was the toughest for you to learn?: Pirouette on bars
What do you have planned for the future?: I’m actually planning to switch gears and do college cheerleading! I joined the cheer team my junior year, and it was so exciting and new for me. But gymnastics will always have a special place in my heart!
Do you have any words of advice for younger gymnasts?: Always stay positive! It gets very frustrating when you are not making a skill one day. Just take a deep breath because it’s just one off day, and there will always be tomorrow. Your positivity might even brighten another teammate’s day! Also, put ice in your water bottle because the cold water is so refreshing during a long practice.
