About Pedro

Having been in the heatlh and fitness industry for more than 7 years, I have developed a keen understanding of clients needs based on the goals that they want to accomplish. I pride myself in my ability to deliver an exceptional experience to clients through my unprecedented programming and nutrition coaching. My ability to motivate clients beyond their threshold's or expectations is also an amazing skill which I possess. All of my clients are the number one priority and are treated as an important part to my practice. 


I am known as a tough love coach with a little bit of sweet southern charm mixed with a no nonsesne New York Style. My background in fitness is based around the sports performance aspect of training, however, the primamry focus is strength and conditioning primairily in the area of functional strength training and injury prevention. I am certified by several nationally recognized accredited organizations and has been employed by 24 Hour Fitness, Equinox and LA Fitness to name a few. As a leader and my coaching skills are all fashioned to get clients maximum results. 


In 2020, I decided to rebrand and change the structure to adapt to the new times. It was here that Altitude Fitness came to life. Alomg with Altitude Fitness, I also created the podcast #FML - Fitness, Motivation, Lifestyle to help motivate lifestyle changes through fitness, this is the Altitude Fitness's motto for success. 

My favorite client story

Recently, one of my new clients was shocked at how quickly she began to feel better. This client was lacking in nutrition as she was not adding enough protein to her diet. As a result, her energy levels were constantly down and she felt bad all the time. She also had issues with attention and focus. She told me that just by increasing her protein in take she has begun to experience amazing boosts in energy and have not crashed at night. She also mentioned that her ability to focus at work and in everyday life has improved. Her workouts have improved based on our programming and goals setup and she feels amazing. She has been with me now about 4 weeks.

My favorite quote

My training philosophy

I truly believe that we all have the capacity to impact and change our lives through the transformation of our minds. I believe that training a client to become in tuned with their goals is exactly the key component to accomplishing each goal. I train all my clients by beginning with the transformation of the mind and thoughts to manifest the physical. Envision what you want to become and work towards that everyday and you will be come that. Inspiring Fitness through Motivation to Transform Lifestyle. #FML

Pedro has extensive knowledge of fitness and nutrition. Before working with him I was working my butt off at the gym for an entire year, four times a week with no progress. He helped me get past my plateau and then some. I’ve never felt so good in my whole life. he’s also really good at pinpointing issues with nutrition, and he helps work through issues with workouts. His knowledge is endless. I would recommend him to anyone that asks!

Ever since starting my training with Pedro, he has been one of the most inspiring and knowledgable fitness professionals I have met. He is caring compassionate and loves to educate his clients. For me, I have had several trainers all of who have been good but none has been to his level of detail, experience and skill set. He has motivated me to keep moving past my own self imposed limitations and continue to always strive for better, not only with my body, but, in mind spirit and lifestyle. I recommend this coach and friend to anyone looking to experience a change in their lifestyle and life. Marie C.

Pedro has been a great trainer. I'm starting from a beginning stage, so he's laid out a good program to build functional strength and progress onwards from there to more and more challenging steps. He's thoughtful about what we are doing and brings a strong background, education, and skill set, as well as a passion for personal training and fulfillment in seeing his clients achieve their goals. Pedro has been a strong motivator to continue to challenge and push myself forwards. I recommend Pedro and believe he will be able to help others achieve change in their lifestyle and fitness


Pedro knows what he is doing. After our first session, I knew he could help me accomplish my goals.
