How does a young girl who starts out at 'Mommy and Me' gymnastics end up as a young woman with multiple All-American honors as a collegiate gymnast? Olivia Karas fell in love with gymnastics and pursued her passion to the point of earning a scholarship to the University of Michigan where she helped the team win multiple Big 10 championships. Her father, Jim Karas, is a personal trainer and best-selling author who works with an exclusive clientele in Chicago.
