COACH RICKY VASQUEZ
* CrossFit L-1
*In-house Coaches Development Program
Born and raised in Dallas, TX. Being the youngest of 8 kids (6 brothers and 1 sister) competitiveness came naturally to Ricky. Growing up, sports have played a big role in his family, used not only for personal betterment but also as a way for everyone to get together. Ricky played baseball and basketball up until college then found himself gradually falling out of the habit. His eye opening moment came when he found himself at his heaviest weight of 300 lbs. In 2013, his best friend asked him to be the best man in his wedding: just the motivation needed to get in shape and start working out. He discovered the workout program Insanity which actually got him started on his path to his active lifestyle. After dropping about 20 pounds, Ricky came across Mental Giants Crossfit in 2014 and was sold on the program and community. 6 years and countless hours of training later, Ricky is now our assistant coach at MGCF.
He knows what it was like coming into Crossfit without any prior knowledge of the sport and knows what it takes to be successful. His goal is to now help his fellow athletes, friends, and family get on the right path to a more healthy lifestyle.
