Ricky competed in gymnastics for 4 years during his youth. After several years of gymnastics
transitioned to playing football and competed in rock climbing throughout High School.
Ricky has coached many disciplines of gymnastics, and brings over ten years of coaching experience to Discover Gymnastics. Since 2007, Ricky coached several XCEL gymnasts from Region 3 and Region 8 to successful seasons all the way to the Regional Championships. Ricky was so proud to see some of his XCEL gymnasts shinning up on the awards podium and overcome with excitement for their big wins.
In addition to coaching gymnastics, Ricky has also trained cheerleaders for collegiate cheer. As our Recreational Gymnastics Manager here at the gym, Ricky enjoys getting a chance to work with so many of our students, and grow their natural love of gymnastics.
In his spare time, Ricky likes to play golf, Fantasy Football and cheering for his New Orleans Saints and Pelicans. The Astros hold a special place in Ricky's heart, and Alex
is his favorite player (
Tigers!) on the Astros. Ricky has completed many 10k's, half-marathons and his first full marathon earlier this year. We are happy to have Ricky sharing his gymnastics knowledge, passion for teaching and comedic sense of humor at the gym.
