MOVE WELL | EAT WELL | THINK WELL
Carlos Figueroa Fitness exists for one purpose; to help you achieve things you never thought possible.
My career began actually working on my own health and weight challenges.
My unique training approach and attention to detail are the foundation of my personal training success. I utilize over 6 years of experience in the industry, as well as an extensive military and educational background to provide an expert level of training services.
My beginnings are humble. A combination of highly volatile family situations and a dynamic military life routinely forced me to change schools in several different countries growing up. As a result, making friends was impossible, leading to me being further bullied throughout my teen years until I went to college. I was the kid with no friends, the kid who ran and hid in the journalism classroom during lunch so I wouldn’t have to face the horrors of sitting alone in the cafeteria, the kid who was often times terrified of even going home. I was the “loser.”
That was a long time ago. As an adult, I’ve manifested positivity and enormous strength from those miserable years. Now I’m in the unique position of being able to relate to and help people from a wide range of backgrounds achieve their goals, having now worked with over 500 athletes and clients.
Personal Training is a natural fit for me. I’ve been through some of the worst of the worst. Nothing, in the gym or out, can scare me. Nothing can stop me.
Be fearless. Be unstoppable. If everyone did that, we could literally change everything.
Carlos graduated in 2008 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Anthropology and a thirst for adventure. He then served in the United States Navy for 6 years as a Russian Linguist, finding plenty of adventure and (mis)fortune along the way. Having lived all over the world, he is very happy to finally call Los Angeles home.
