A NEW COACH ROCKS THE GYM
IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF "MAKE IT OR BREAK IT,"
MONDAY, APRIL 4TH AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (March 15, 2011) - Gymnastics at The Rock will never be the same with the arrival of a new, free-spirited coach, in "Free People," an all-new episode of ABC Family's original series "Make It or Break It," premiering Monday, April 4th (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT).
When new coach Darby Conrad arrives at The Rock with a no-rules policy and a penchant for meditation, Payson and Emily are initially skeptical about Darby's plans for the gym. However, when Damon returns to Boulder, Emily realizes that the lack of rules could work in her favor. But Emily's joy is short-lived when she learns the NGO has other plans to keep her career on track. With Kaylie in rehab for her eating disorder, Lauren's ambitions of becoming team captain are put on hold when Darby decides that Lauren and Payson must compete for the honor. But with no set rules or guidelines and Lauren determined to get her way, will this new coach be the undoing of the gym and the girls' dreams for World domination?
Meanwhile, Kaylie's excitement over leaving rehab is short-lived when she is informed that her health must be her top priority and she cannot return to gymnastics.
