Meet Coach Ryan Reese, from ASI Plano West. Ryan started at ASI as a camp assistant last summer, and now he works Birthday Parties, Open Gyms, and his favorite, Gymnastics After School. Ryan is even training to become a Gymmie Kids coach, to work with children who have special needs. Ryan applied at ASI because he really enjoys working with children, and it is that same love of kids that keeps him coming into work every day. Ryan loves coaching at ASI because he gets to put smiles on kids’ faces every day.

Quote from Ryan

“It isn’t a regular work place. The people I work with are like a second family!”

Ryan grew up here in the Dallas area, and even attended ASI Plano West as a child. He must have liked it, because he keeps coming back! Now Ryan is a senior at Hebron High School, and he loves that ASI works with him to make sure his work schedule and school schedule are compatible and his education comes first. When he graduates, he wants to attend Texas State University to study Criminal Justice. Outside of the gym, Ryan likes to hunt and fish. In addition to his college goals, Ryan hopes to one day go on a mission trip to Africa.
