A native of Puerto Rico, Carlos grew up in the Bronx as a skinny, awkward kid who was always athletic but never really into sports. During college, while playing flag football, he was recruited to play on a semi-pro football team based in the Bronx and ended up playing defensive back for 3 years. A few years later while attending grad school and starting a family, he discovered personal training and group exercise. Carlos has his Masters in Developmental Psychology and teaches Sports Psychology at Long Island University.
At the risk of sounding basic, Carlos loves all things pumpkin flavored.
