ABOUT ME "Built by Nando"

Knowledgeable, motivated and experienced certified personal trainer. Fernando has an athletic background including boxing, basketball, gymnastics and bodybuilding. Most of Fernando's personal training experience came from a 9-year military background in the United States Coast Guard as a Law Enforcement Officer and a military fitness trainer. His passion, dedication and discipline he gained through the service translates into his style of training and motivation towards his client's goals. Fernando has always had a passion for helping people and pushing others to be at their best. When detaching from the armed services, Fernando continued his career in fitness as a men’s physique bodybuilder competing in Hawaii, northern and southern California.

Fernando's strength and conditioning training mostly takes place at a 7,200 square foot facility in Oakland. He specializes in strength and conditioning, nutrition, group bootcamps, toning, fat loss, and bodybuilding coaching. The training workouts are never boring because Fernando will provide a variety of exercises to fit his client's needs - using free weights, functional movement, kettlebells, tires, resistance bands, battle ropes, BOSU, bike and rowing machine, body-weight, medicine balls, and boxing.

Whether you are interested in starting a new fitness journey or just want to pursue a higher level of fitness, Fernando’s goal is to help build and transform you towards a positive and healthy lifestyle.
