Overview

The show, set in the world of competitive gymnastics, follows a group of gymnasts training at the top-notch Rocky Mountain Gymnastic Training Center, known as The Rock. While their individual skills make each of the four girls serious contenders at the Olympics, the group is continuously fraught with internal conflict that threatens to distract them from their goal. With the help of their tough but compassionate coach, Sasha Belov, the gymnasts must overcome the drama and arguments to succeed.

The cast includes Chelsea Hobbs as newcomer Emily Kmetko, Ayla Kell as Payson Keeler, Josie Loren as Kaylie Cruz, and Cassie Scerbo as Lauren Tanner. The Rock's manager, Summer, is played by Candace Cameron Bure. Rosa Blasi stars as Kaylie Cruz's mother Ronnie, a one-hit wonder from the 1980s, and Peri Gilpin from Frasier stars as Payson's mother, Kim Keeler.

Characters

Gymnasts

  • Emily Kmetko (played by Chelsea Hobbs), is the daughter of Chloe Kmetko and half-sister of Brian Kmetko. She is a hopeful gymnast who came from Fresno, California before she came to the Rocky Gymnastics Institute. She came in on scholarship. She has trouble fitting in and is a very secretive person.
  • Kaylie Cruz (played by Josie Loren), the daughter of Ronnie and Alex Cruz and the national champion. She seemed like a mediocre gymnast who was more set on being a "normal teenager". She secretly dates Carter Anderson, a male gymnast at "The Rock" but she breaks up with him to focus on Nationals. She is very sweethearted and a little insecure.
  • Lauren Tanner (played by Cassie Scerbo), is the daughter of Steve Tanner. She is a good but inconsistent gymnast who lets her emotions affect her performance. She is often very vengeful and mean.
  • Payson Keeler (played by Ayla Kell), the daughter of Becca and Mark Keeler was the Rock's top gymnast. She is very competitive and confident. She has a back infection, which made her retire from the sport.
