Gary Layton 

Gary’s passion for coaching cheerleading was discovered by chance after he opened his own youth fitness center that was focused on all aspects of sports and activities for young athletes.  This quickly transitioned into a starting a cheer program and the rest is history.  Gary has experience coaching all levels and age groups within competitive cheer, he also coached a few season with the Richmond-Burton High School cheer teams.  When Gary is not in the gym coaching team or tumble classes you will still find him in the gym building something or dreaming of routines.  His dedication and love for these athletes is immeasurable.

Outside the gym Raquelle loves running, fishing, photography, and all things beauty related. She is currently attending Tricoci University for cosmetology.

Ashley Quinones 

Ashley is a homegrown IL girl and comes with 15 years of experience coaching all-star cheerleading.  Ashley has had great success with her teams in the past, winning numerous titles and nationals.  Some of her most recent honors include coaching teams to championships at Cheersport Nationals and the D2 Summit.  Although winning competitions is amazing, Ashley finds her biggest successes in watching athletes grow in life and seeing them evolve into strong confident individuals.  Nothing is greater than watching young athletes be proud of themselves.  When not at the gym you can find Ashley playing with her 3 year old twins and doing some sort of craft or art project.
