An Inside Look: Inside Gymnastics Magazine

With the goal of serving the gymnastics community as the leading media outlet for the sport, Inside Gymnastics magazine was founded in 2002 with a launch in March of that year. The debut issue featured eventual Olympian and U.S. National Champion Tasha Schwikert on the cover. From the beginning, the magazine has had a focus on showcasing life both on and off the competition floor, with some describing the magazine as a cross between 'Sports Illustrated' and 'People' magazine, for the sport of gymnastics. Gymnasts are dynamic athletes with individual personalities and unique skill sets, and the mission has always been to showcase the person as a whole, not just the competition results.

In just over two decades, Inside Gymnastics magazine has grown to be the number one media outlet for year-round gymnastics coverage worldwide, with a stunning print edition, a vibrant App, increased on-site event coverage, a passionate group of social media Followers (approaching one million across platforms), and a recently relaunched YouTube Channel. The incredible base of readers is passionate about the sport and loyal to the magazine and all its platforms, a testament to both the community and the publication.

Since the launch, Inside Gymnastics has covered the 2004 Athens Games, 2008 Beijing Games, 2012 London Games, 2016 Rio Games, 2020 Tokyo Games and is now gearing up for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Cover stars have included Olympians Simone Biles, Sunisa Lee, Jade Carey, Laurie Hernandez, Nastia Liukin, MyKayla Skinner and Carly Patterson, among others, along with NCAA stars like Maggie Nichols and Trinity Thomas.

Each year, the magazine produces a number of commemorative editions, including for the World Championships or Olympic Games and the NCAA Championships and also showcases athletes in unique ways, including with the annual presentation and recognition of the '50 Most Artistic' athletes in the sport.
