Am I the Personal Trainer for you?

You want to feel fit, have more energy and improve your quality of life, and you'd like to have a knowledgeable professional to help you achieve results.

You need to lose some weight, have aches and pains that won’t go away and are concerned about where your health will be in 10 years if you don’t take action now.

You know you are willing to do what it takes to be fit, but what used to work just doesn’t seem to cut it anymore.

The truth is, it’s not your fault if you have tried on your own and failed to get back in shape. Most fitness programs are designed for injury-proof 20-year-olds who get results just by showing up.

What you need is a better way, I have been helping successful adults get back to doing the activities they love, achieve their fitness goals, lose weight, and improve their quality of life for over twenty years. 


So, if you are thinking about working with a fitness professional that will get you results, please read on and when you are ready, go to the HOW TO GET STARTED section on this page to begin your fitness journey!

Jump start turns into 5 years

Knowledge and Experience

I had torn my hamstring. Months of rehabilitation had not produced adequate results. Carlos was sensitive to my condition, knowledgeable in how to deal with it, and within a short period of time, I was pain-free and ready to take on new challenges.

 I started to train with Carlos to give myself a kick start and face my fears in the gym. Carlos not only made me feel comfortable, he gave me great praise and support. I found myself striving to do better and looking forward to our weekly sessions.  For that reason, my “jump start” turned into 5 years of weekly sessions.

Chronic Pain Help

All You Need for Home Workout

Jump start turns into 5 years

I was at the time morbidly obese with multiple health issues. I had Fibromyalgia as well as late stage chronic Lyme's disease. I couldn't move without pain and I had given up. He was very compassionate in my situation and tailored our workouts to be gentle on my joints. He was so energetic and motivating he got me moving again even through the chronic pain!
