In 18 years, Maddie “Maddog” Grobmeier influenced hundreds of young gymnasts, coaches and countless teammates and now her memory will live on. Her gym family at Gym-Kinetics, where she trained for 16 years, made her face a permanent fixture in the building.

On Nov. 26, Gym-Kinetics, located in Mokena, surprised Maddie’s parents, Frank and Cyndi, and sister, Sam, with a 6-feet wide and 5.5-feet tall wall mural of Maddie from her final season of competition.
