In addition to training at Balance, Carmen is currently a Health and Wellness Coach at Drexel University and was previously a Personal Training Manager at Echelon Health and Fitness in NJ. His certifications are AAA/ISSA, TRX, CPR/AED.
Carmen’s career in the fitness industry began in 2012 and since that time he has held numerous positions – from a floor & small group trainer, to the personal training manager & director at a large health club. He has also worked as an exercise physiologist at one of the top rehabilitation facilities in the Philadelphia area.
Growing up, sports were Carmen's passion, and he dedicated his life to developing himself as an athlete. Unfortunately, there was one major obstacle that constantly stood in his way… injuries. Time after time, he would find myself nursing ailments, completely ignorant to what was causing the pain in the first place. This was the driving force inspiring his career change to personal training.
Carmen dedicated himself to functional training, where he has found himself in the best shape of his life – stronger & more flexible than ever – while focusing on injury rehabilitation and future injury prevention. His goal is to help his clients achieve the same healthy physical balance of strength and flexibility and understand the body’s movement to best avoid injury and maximize performance and results.
