Shayna Malcolm found interest in Gymnastics and Cheerleading at the ripe age of three as a mascot for a local high school in Okinawa, Japan. During her youth she competed in numerous meets with various Gymnastics teams, but slowly began to find a greater interest in Cheerleading as a sport. As captain of her high school Varsity cheerleading squad, she loved choreographing routines and chose to take that passion with her to college.
At Penn State University, Shayna used that same love for Cheerleading to lead the squad during her Junior and Senior year of college. With a Bachelor's degree in Business Marketing and Management, she partnered with her mother to create GymRatz LA.Together they plan to bring the same shared passion for Gymnastics and Cheerleading to inner city youth and create a brand that will help develop gymnasts, cheerleaders, and dancers with skills and techniques for fitness and fun.
