Calli Ryal’s began her gymnastics career as a seven year old in local gyms and later moved to “Great Lakes Gymnastics” located in Avon Lake, owned by Joe Gura who was also the coach at Magnificat High School. Thus began an association that took her to qualifying for the USA Nationals at the age of nine. She starting competing at the Junior Olympics (JO) level at age 11. The JO competition allows the presentation of higher level tricks and an opportunity to make enough scores to get to the JO nationals. Calli decided however, to compete for Midview High School at the end of her freshman year. She did so at some sacrifice because she had to give up about half of her Junior Olympic season. Most college coaches recruit from the JO program. She won the State of Ohio High School Gymnastics All-Around Championship in both 1998 and 2000 choosing not to compete in 1999. She still holds the record for the highest floor score at the state meet.

After a sensational high school career, Calli went on to the University of Michigan. She was a 7-time NCAA All American Gymnast and made the All–Big Ten Conference Team in 2001 and 2002. She was named NCAA All-American first team in 2002 and 2003, and 2003 was the NCAA Northeast Region All-Around Champion and Co-Champion on uneven bars, and floor exercise. She owns the University of Michigan’s record for season average in the floor exercise and is the only University of Michigan gymnast in program history to earn three consecutive Big Ten “Gymnast of the Week” honors. Calli helped the Michigan women’s gymnastics team to NCAA Championship honors, finishing 3rd in 2001, 7th in 2002, 5th in 2003 and 8th in 2004. She was ranked the #1 all-around collegiate gymnast in the nation for the final five weeks of 2002.

Calli Ryals lives in Venice Beach, California and is an actress. She appeared in the I-Hop commercial with Donovan McNabb and in the movie, “Stick It” with Jeff Bridges.
