Coaching & Fitness



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 competitor and specialized in fitness, weight management, nutrition and overall transformation. 

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.

I'm 68 years old and have worked with trainers for many years. I always look for someone who knows what they are doing. In other words, I want someone who is careful about form, sensitive to my limits, and yet encouraging to reach new goals. Fernando is the total package and he's reliable and responsible. I recommend him without any reservation. And with him I squatted 250 lbs--seems impossible even as I write this. You won't be disappointed.

One of the best decisions I've ever made to take care of myself! I found Fernando when I was going through some really tough times- training with him literally got me out of bed and to feel like me again. He knows exactly how far to push you and is so encouraging at the same time. He is adaptive, flexible with scheduling, and so knowledgeable. How did I find you Fer ?! Muchísimas graxias x todo!

I can't say enough amazing things about Fernando - he has completely transformed the way I work out and think about my body. His workouts are fast-paced, creative, and always challenging so I never get bored. If you like to be challenged, he will push you further than you ever knew possible and leave you feeling extremely sore but incredibly accomplished. Plus, he is hilarious and so kind and easy to talk to. Not only is he a great coach but an awesome friend who you can text with exercise, diet, or life related questions and he will always be there keeping you on track. Cannot recommend enough. Thank you Fernando!!

Fernando helped coach me through my first NPC bikini bodybuilding competition where I placed top 5 in my class I have definitely learned a lot about weightlifting and nutrition through his knowledge. He is an awesome trainer who will push and motivate you especially at times when you feel like giving up. You will never be bored with his workouts and he is more than just your average trainer. He is passionate about fitness/nutrition and genuinely cares for your goals and well being. Thank you Fernando for always keeping me on track and helping me be a better me!!!

Fernando is an awesome trainer that knows his stuff. He will challenge you, push you, and test your limits. I got stronger, faster, and built up endurance from all the trainings I had with him. He is knowledgeable about kinesiology, creative about how to use weights, machines, and equipment in order to maximize your lifts and growth, and is extremely professional. He not only talks the talk but also walks the walk so he knows how to reach anyone's fitness goals. I can't say enough positive things about him so give him a try and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
