GK: As a gym owner and coach, what do you look for in a cheerleading uniform? How does GK Cheer meet that need?
HH: I really look for a well fitting, custom School Fit or All Star cheer uniform that is athletic and long lasting. GK Cheer meets those needs by offering custom cheer apparel that is fit tested extensively to ensure a great fit. The fact that I can use GK Cheer as an avenue to further my brand is something that is really exciting for not only me, but the gym as well.
GK: As a judge, what do you notice most about cheerleading uniforms?
HH: I really notice the customization that certain cheer uniforms have. You do notice construction from the stand, but primarily you see the embellished uniforms that GK Cheer is known for.
GK: What are the gyms in Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts looking for in an All Star or School Fit cheerleading uniform?
HH: The gyms in the Northeast corridor are definitely looking for an avenue to explore their creative sides. With that said, GK Cheer offers them the ability to do a one-of-a-kind cheer uniform that doesn't exist any where else. The trend right now for Northeast high school teams is to have their cheerleading apparel look more like All Star cheer wear. Cheerleading gyms are definitely leading by example and setting trends on the cheer uniform front. The gyms are looking more for mesh, embellishment with jewels and sequinz™ and a one-of-a-kind look that encompasses their brand.
GK: How will your past experience of judging and coaching help you in your new position?
HH: I have made so many great friends who own gyms and coach high school teams. Since one of my former positions allowed me to travel extensively throughout New England, I have made many connections that will help me in my position. I have a great reputation as being an honest, hard working consultant for the cheerleading apparel industry, and coaches really want someone they can trust.
GK: What makes you most excited about being part of the GK Cheer family?
HH: Knowing that everyone is commited to helping each other out. The production facility being located right in the building with design and management is a really nice change being that errors or issues can be corrected instantly. That part makes me not only relieved, but also excited that our customers will be able to receive their custom GK cheerleading uniforms on time with little to no production issues.
Welcome to the family, Heath! We are so excited to have you a part of the GK Cheer team and look forward to all that you will bring to enhance brand awareness in the Northeast corridor.
