Favorite memory from your years at APEX:
Since I cannot state just one memory, I am going to mention experiences. My favorite thing to do before a meet is braid everyone’s hair. I love how all the gymnasts’ hair is the same. It makes us feel like a closer team. I also love the bake sale every year for Relay for Life. Amy Eck and I started the back sale and the entire team gets so involved raising money for a great cause which is fantastic.
Your favorite meet and why?
Daytona Beach Open because I love Florida, I loved the equipment and I did my best level 9 bar routine there.
What skill was the toughest for you to learn? Yurchenko
What are your plans for next year?
I hope to attend college in Virginia, South Carolina or Arizona and major in Mathematics or business. Next summer I want to travel to Croatia and hike the Grand Canyon.
Do you have any words of advice for younger gymnasts?
Do not let fear get in the say of your gymnastics!! I have had way too many fear issues that held me back, and if I could start over I would not let fear overcome me.
APEX Gymnastics is beginning it’s eighteenth year of operation. APEX began as an idea in January of 1997. When the existing Virginia Gymnastics decided to close it’s doors, APEX became a reality. Marty Newsom and Melanie Cuozzo became owners in September, 1997 and APEX Gymnastics, Inc. was born. Today we are proud to have over 1000 young gymnasts in our APEX programs.
At 28,000 square feet, APEX is currently the largest and most equipped gymnastics facility in Loudoun County and one of the largest in the state of Virginia. APEX serves gymnasts not only in the Loudoun County area, but we have members from Manassas, Maryland, Centreville, Winchester, West Virginia and Pennsylvania that attend our facilities.
APEX is proud to have three olympians, five former elite gymnasts, former NCAA coaches, certified judges, high school coaches and public school teachers on our staff.
We hope you will come see our facility and become part of the APEX family.
