GC024: Maile and Tori O’Keefe

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gymnasts of all ages, may I present to you, the one, the only…

Maile O’Keefe

This weeks episode is Maile and her mom Tori talking about what it’s like to raise an elite gymnast! After a 13 place all around at the US Secret Classic 2015, She’s set up perfect for the P&G Championships, and a long career ahead!

Once in a while there comes along a pretty fantastic athlete that you get to make a personal connection with, and Maile is one of those athletes for me. Maile’s mom Tori called me about 2 years ago because Maile was having heel pain and they were at their wits end.

So after following the Gymnast Care Heel Pain Protocol and using The X Brace, she was pain free and back to full time gymnastics.

In this episode of the Gymnast Care Podcast we get into training, nutrition, and Maile’s plans for the future…and about half way in, Maile drops a bomb that blew me away!

Maile is actually the first elite gymnast to wear my invention, The X Brace, in international competition and I couldn’t have been more proud!

Now, being an elite athlete is difficult, especially when mom and dad are footing the bill. So, there is a special fund set up to help Maile travel this summer to the competitions and if you want to help, just click here:

Here’s a pretty cool video of Maile on floor.

So, I hope you enjoy the show, and if you have any questions or cool comments for Maile, leave them in the comments below and we’ll get her on the site to answer your questions!

Have an awesome week!
