Follow the triumphs and the heartbreaks as close friends balance their lives as high school students with the intense world of competitive gymnastics. Relive the series that raises the bar on family drama, complete with a never-before-seen extended episode, and go behind the scenes to discover what it takes to perform such amazing stunts only on DVD!

Amazon.com

Training to be an Olympic gymnast is excruciatingly hard work and leaves little time for anything else in a preteen's life. Fellow female gymnasts and friends Payson (Ayla Kell), Kaylie (Josie Loren), and Lauren (Cassie Scerbo) have trained together for years at the Rocky Mountain Gymnastic Training Center, better known as "The Rock." The three top-ranked young women are in line to represent their team at Nationals, and, if they perform well, their placement in the top 12 will send them on to their ultimate goal of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games. The girls' lives revolve around training and they are bound by strict rules that forbid boyfriends, jobs, and any real social life. Their sacrifices are huge, but absolutely essential in creating and maintaining the intense focus and determination necessary for competing at the Olympic level. Despite the best efforts of the girls and their families to avoid distractions, every member of The Rock is shaken up when new girl and unknown gymnast Emily (Chelsea Hobbs) joins the gym on a scholarship and seems to have a shot at making Nationals; coach Marty (Erik Palladino) suddenly leaves the team; new coach Sasha (Neil Jackson) takes over; and personal problems threaten to sidetrack each of them. Even Coach Sasha's firm hand and zero tolerance for mistakes can't protect the girls from the real-life ups and downs that come with growing up, family life, love, injuries, and financial instability. What the girls learn as they struggle to focus on their gymnastic training and Olympic dreams are some very difficult lessons about friendship, family, love, control, and being part of a team. This extended edition contains the first nine episodes of the series as well as a 10th extended finale episode, "All That Glitters." Bonus features include six deleted scenes and a 9-minute making-of featurette with interview footage of the four major stars as well as writer Holly Sorensen, gymnastic coach Carolyn Day, and stunt coordinator Greg Barnett. ABC Family's Make It or Break It series offers powerful insight into the challenging sport of women's gymnastics, but it's much more than a chronicle of the sport: it's also a captivating series about growing up and the search to discover what's truly important in one's life. (Ages 14 and older due to mature thematic elements and language) --Tami Horiuchi

If you have not already bought this, please be aware that Season 1 volume 2 does not have the English subtitles for hearing impaired that are included ONLY on this volume 1. I bought this and loved it, got Volume 2 and no subtitles. I am hearing impaired and am very disappointed I cannot continue my set or enjoy it without any captions.

Please write to ABC Family Channel, Paul Lee, President, 3800 West Alameda Ave., Burbank, CA 91505 and let them know your concerns, Thank you!

Hopefully they will include subtitles when Season 2 is released soon.

Works as expected and my daughter loves the series. This will make a great xmas gift this year. I was surprised to actually see it available, but as usual, if I want something, no matter how obscure, Amazon carries it. If you've got a gymnastics loving girl in your life, they will love it. Some of the themes of the show are mature so not really for younger than 10 yrs.

This is THE best show on ABC Family now. I use to never watch it (season one and half of season two). And then my friend made me sit there after Secret Life and watch MIOBI. I literally fell in love with it. I kicked myself in the butt for not watching it when it first aired. "Never judge a book by its cover." Well I judged this show before I even watched it. And I regret ever doing that. BECAUSE, I LOVE this show now!! There's so much trueness and drama to this show. They actually bring a gymnists life to reality. When you watch it, you feel like you are there with the characters battling all the challenges or victories that gymnastics brings you. Also, the tradegies that could and DO happen to everyday gymnists. WATCH this show. It is well worth it!! You will fall head over heals. :)

I'm hooked! Great series, I can't wait to find out what happens next. A slight tendency to focus on the negative more often than the positive--even these women's triumphs are brought down by petty rivalries and conflicts over boys. It's too bad that Lauren Tanner is simultaneously the most consistent, watchable, non-prissy character on the show and the nastiest. It's like watching every dirty secret of the women's movement splayed across the screen for all to see--both cathartic and disheartening.
The show's certainly unique in that it portrays professional athletes in all the strife, difficulties, and challenges they face, rather than simply the joy of the sport. These girls struggle with bulimia, whether to have sex, the consequences of having sex and the shame of virginity, economic difficulties...they are in every way normal teenagers. However, thanks to some EXCELLENT writing [best I've seen on a show since Grey's Anatomy, and more enjoyable sans blood and guts] these girls seem much more NORMAL, strikingly, than do most teenagers featured on dramatic television.
All in all, a great series, and it'll only get better. Right?
p.s. props to the writers for keeping the boys dreamy yet realistic, and keeping everyone consistently characterized, with normal problems and real-life concerns! We love you.

One MAJOR question, though--when's the soundtrack coming out?! I absolutely adore the music in the show, and I can't wait to be able to buy it all...so, when can I do that?
Please make that happen?

We have not watched this yet. We started to watch it but were unaware that it is tv-14 and my daughter is only 10. It had some inappropriate language and content so we turned it off. She wants to keep the movie until she is old enough to watch it as she is a gymnast..

I was disappointed with this purchase. I bought it for my 7 and 9 year old girls as it was marketed as an ABC Family drama - Something we could all enjoy together (or so I thought). Then I checked the packaging and its labelled as PG. after watching one episode I realise this is not content suitable for 'families with children under 13'. Disappointing they ruin a gymnastics show with teenage sex!
