About Oscar

My name is Oscar. I am from Puerto Rico. I lived in Miami for over 20 years, and now I get to call South Philly my home! I am an ISSA certified Personal Trainer. I've been working in the fitness industry in one way or another for over 15 years. I’ve always loved the continuing educational aspect of the fitness industry. I believe in the long-term, profoundly-positive, compounding effects of fitness in life. Also, in my career, inside & outside the gym. I have worked as a P.E. elementary teacher, an at-risk youth counselor, team building sports coach, strength & mobility trainer, and an obstacle race youth coach, among other things throughout the years. Two of my passions are, knowing I get to be the catalyst for people’s physical & mental transformations. And I’m passionate about being healthy, and happy. All while living a life of valuable service to others. I believe with all my heart that fitness is more than how you look, it’s a lifestyle. It’s an attitude & a way of being. It saves, and transforms lives. It did mine, and it will change the life of anyone else committed & willing to try. You get to!
