The television network ABC Family introduced viewers to the series Make It or Break It during the summer of 2009. The concept came from the movie Stick It, which featured a girl's gymnastics team. Holly Sorensen created the series along with John Ziffren and Paul Stupin. The show revolves around the Rocky Mountain Gymnastics Training Center, which is also nicknamed the Rock. Three of the center's elite gymnasts are training with the hope of making the 2012 Olympic team. The girls include Payson Keeler, portrayed by Ayla Kell, Lauren Tanner, played by actress Cassie Scerbo, and Kaylie Cruz, who is depicted by actress Josie Loren. The three teenagers have been training together since they were children and have developed a close friendship. Emily Kmetko, portrayed by actress Chelsea Hobbs, begins training at the Rock when the gym's head coach, Marty Walsh, discovers her talent after Emily's mother convinces him to scout her skill at the YMCA. Emily's appearance at the gym creates jealously among the Rock's elite gymnasts. At the end of the season, the girls compete at the National Gymnastics Championships. Sadly, Payson becomes injured during her routine on the uneven bars and her continuation in the sport is unknown. Payson attempts to resume her life without gymnastics, but struggles. Fortunately, a doctor looks into her injury and performs a surgery to repair her damaged body. The medical treatment is a success, but the time away from the gym has caused her body to change. During season two, Payson must change the way she competes and Emily loses her scholarship, which causes her family financial hardship. Emily's brother has a medical condition, and when the family is unable to pay for his prescription, he begins having seizures. Emily steals the medication for her brother and is arrested by the police. At this time, Kaylie develops an eating disorder and collapses after her beam routine during a competition. Emily must leave the gym as she discovers that she is pregnant and Kaylie enters rehab to treat her eating disorder. The season ends with the girls winning the team gold at the Worlds competition. In season three, Kaylie, Lauren and Payson, arrive to the Olympic Training Center to begin training for the London Olympics. While at the facility, they become friends with former rivals as they train harder than they ever have before to perfect their skills. The series ends on a high note with the three gymnasts from the Rock making the Olympic team.
