Carlos has been an athlete all of his life. He went from dominating 4 squares, duck-duck-goose, freeze tag and dodgeball to dominating the volleyball court in high school and college. As a middle blocker for the State Champion men's volleyball team at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California, Carlos developed an appreciation for strength and conditioning. It was there that he decided to take courses in Human Anatomy and Physiology to understand how the body moves and responds during exercise. After graduating with an associates degree he went on to study Kinesiology at the university of Nevada Las Vegas.
In Las Vegas, he was able to link the science with his intuitive understanding of movement and physiology. He helped establish the school's first Powerlifting Club and was a member of the UNLV boxing team. He also had a valuable learning experience as an intern for a former World Strongest Man competitor, Mark Philippi, at Philippi Sports Institute. He helped the staff with the daily training sessions of its members, which consisted of young athletes, soccer moms, professional fighters and cirque de soleil performers. He gained amazing insight about developing training principles that he still uses today. For him, simplification is best way to achieve goals.
