My name is Rickey Damiano Jr. I was born and raised in Sacramento, CA, and moved to San Antonio when my wife joined the U.S. Navy. I am a career firefighter/paramedic with the San Antonio Fire Department and currently work as a paramedic in the EMS division. I am happily married to the love of my life and have 4 amazing children. I began CrossFit back in 2008 and have been Olympic weightlifting since my early 20’s. Besides CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting, my hobbies include camping, fishing, sports, and anything that involves my wife and kiddos. I am a born again Christian and enjoy reading the scriptures and encouraging others. What I enjoy most about owning Helotes CrossFit and coaching are the people and the community that has been built around them. Seeing people find a place they belong, receiving the best coaching around, and crushing their goals are what give me fulfillment and satisfaction. Helotes CrossFit is a place where people matter and our community is positive, encouraging, and motivating.
