Hi There! I’m Carlos!
I’m a personal trainer and fitness instructor based out of Richmond, VA. I’ve been in the fitness industry since 2009. I was introduced to the fitness industry when a former co-worker of mine wanted to start taking Zumba® classes as a new year resolution. I was instantly hooked after my first Zumba class; I kept attending class every week, while my co-worker stopped attending after a few weeks. I experienced significant weight loss and found a new passion through the Zumba program.
I became a licensed Zumba instructor in 2009 and have been teaching Zumba classes since then. I became a certified personal trainer in 2013 and have experience working with fitness enthusiasts on land and in water. In 2014, I was licensed by Zumba Fitness to be a Zumba Jammer (ZJ™) and retired from being a ZJ in 2017; a ZJ is a choreographer who teaches other Zumba instructors choreography techniques.
I believe in spreading love and positivity to everyone I meet. I am blessed to be part of such a large community of fitness enthusiasts, whom I’ve met throughout my many years of being in the industry. Come join our community!
