About Me

Greenwich CT Top Personal Trainer

Carlos Perez, MS | ACE Certified Personal Trainer


Carlos developed an interest for sport and exercise early in life. As a three-sport athlete in high school he excelled in baseball and went on to play college baseball.  His passion for sport and exercise has led to his experience with running, biking, swimming, weight training, golf, tennis, scuba, skiing, snowboarding, beach volleyball, and surfing. The desire to perform each sport or exercise at the highest level of his capability led Carlos to learn about biomechanics (human movement), sports nutrition and personal training. Carlos’ participation in multiple sports combined with his education has enabled him to understand the personal training and nutrition needs of competitive and recreational athletes.

Today Carlos enjoys, hiking, tennis, cycling, running and healthy eating with his wife, their two teenage boys, friends and clients .

Why Choose Optimal Personal Training

I take my clients' fitness goals very seriously. I understand that losing weight and gaining muscle can be challenging, and my goal is to help you overcome hurdles and reach your goals. I will assess your current fitness level and goals to create your individualized fitness plan. I meet clients in the Greenwich CT and the surrounding area in the comfort of their own homes. I also meet with clients at Greenwich Fitness 24/7 Access Gym.  

Knowledgeable Training Experience

Depending on my client's fitness levels and preferences, I devise in-home fitness training programs that get results. To achieve a well-balanced fitness routine, I utilize various training platforms such as strength training with free weights, bands, TRX and machines. I enjoy including balance training, HIIT, Tabata, and Stretching when desired and appropriate.   

Your Success is My Goal

I understand that adapting new fitness habits is difficult and often times fails. My goal is to change your view on fitness so that it becomes a part of who you are and your lifestyle. I strongly believe that if you practice healthy habits, you feel and see a youthful transformation.
