CASEY RIGBY

Co-owner and Head Coach

Casey Rigby began her gymnastics journey at the age of two (2) until the age of 18 at Flips USA Gymnastics in Sparks, Nevada - where she was coached by Neil and Patty Resnick, former Boise State and National Team Staff Members. Casey attended Western Michigan University on a full-ride scholarship, where she concluded her own gymnastics career and graduated with a degree in Psychology. Immediately after college, Casey naturally fell into coaching and has been producing high-level gymnastics all over Region 2! She has been coaching for more than 11 years. Most notably, Casey coached a Western National Champion and two (2) Top 10 National Champions.

Casey is married to her loving husband Jon. Casey and Jon enjoys spending time with their son, Caden along with Wilson (pet pig), and Shadow (dog). With the support of her family and community, she is excited to start the next chapter in her journey of owning and building the best-in-class gym, along with her colleague and business partner, Ryan Sackman.

RYAN SACKMAN

Co-owner and Coach

Ryan Sackman started his gymnastics journey as the father of two (2) enthusiastic gymnasts, his daughters Ella and Eva. Prior to coaching full-time, Ryan worked in marketing and business acquisition. He has coached nearly every class and program such as Mommy and Me, Preschool, Recreation, Xcel, and Junior Olympics – which offers him the opportunity to learn something new, each and every time!

 

Over the course of the last six (6) years, he fell in love with the sport – the remarkable athletes, seeing their skills advance, witnessing their incredible accomplishments, and most of all the amazing sense of community that this sport builds. Without the support of his awesome wife Crystal, his truly wonderful daughters, and his faithful puppy companion Molly – none of this could have been possible. He is looking forward to building on that amazing community with his business partner, Casey Rigby for years to come.

Lauren is eager to continue her postsecondary education and begin her teaching career and continue to coach.
