Originally from Southern California, Carlos brings over 10 years of education and experience. Having completed his bachelor’s in kinesiology from San Diego State University in 2008, he remained in San Diego gaining experience working with a variety of populations, ranging from elementary grade students to elite collegiate athletes to retirees. In 2011, Carlos began his first stay in Chicago, providing fitness and wellness services for various facilities throughout the Chicagoland area, including Northern Trust Bank and Tribune Tower. In 2014, he returned to San Diego to act as a health and wellness resource for Sharp Healthcare but his love for the city life brought him back to Chicago.
