Mitch Gaylord inspires, motivates and entertains. After experiencing his presentation, audiences feel they have met the person behind the accomplishments!

Mitch Gaylord first thrilled the world in 1984 when he led the United States Olympic gymnastics team to its Gold Medal victory. In addition to being the first American Gymnast in history to score a perfect “10,” Mitch went on to capture a Silver medal for Vaulting and two Bronze medals for Rings and Parallel Bars. As the number one ranked gymnast in 1983 and 1984, Mitch invented two skills now named internationally after him. To this day, the Gaylord Flip and the Gaylord Two are considered to be among the most difficult and spectacular feats in gymnastics.

After the Olympics, Mitch was appointed to the president’s Council for Physical Fitness by President Reagan. During this time, he fulfilled numerous speaking engagements, endorsements and appearances across the country. In 1986, Mitch made his acting debut in Columbia Pictures’ “American Anthem” and went on to appear in several commercial advertisements including Levi’s, Diet Coke, Nike, Vidal Sassoon, Soloflex and Texaco. In 1995, he was inducted into UCLA’s Hall of Fame, and in 2006, he was inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame.

Mitch has served as a journalist/broadcaster, a motivational coach and a fitness expert. His passion for health and wellness led to his founding of Mitch Gaylord’s Gold Medal Fitness and the creation of the Perfect 10 Workout.

Mitch’s commitment to creating an enduring legacy that will impact the world of Health & Fitness is surpassed only by his passion for his family as a dedicated father and loving husband to his wife, Valentina.

Few of us will ever compete on the international playing field of world-champion athletes.  But Mitch Gaylord shows audiences from all walks of life how the POWER of FOCUS (Flow, Originality, Consistency, Unstoppable Confidence, Strength) can make winner out of real people in real life situations.

The Path of The Olympian

  • We all need a dream or vision for our lives and the strength to remain focused on that dream.  The athletes 'zone' can be applied to anything we pursue.
  • We need courage to face our fears in this ever-changing world.  Taking proper risks is not only necessary but highly rewarding.  The need to trust your instincts is imperative.
  • At the speed in which change occurs, we need the ability to act swiftly, decisively, and accurately. To be effective, we must be prepared, know our selves, and how we operate at our peak performance level.
  • The Path of the Olympian requires a long-term commitment.  We don't achieve our goals overnight.  Consistently correct actions will produce the results we desire.
  • Learning how to be a "Champion" in life after you have won is critical to long term success.

"The message Mitch Gaylord delivered in his presentation was a perfect '10.'  It was packed with real life experiences that we can all draw from to grow both personally and professionally."

Thomas Sokol

"Mitch's presentation . . . was an important message for our group to hear and also very entertaining.  The standing ovation was well deserved . . . not only is Mitch an Olympic Gold Medallist, but also an 'All American' speaker."
