  • Zac B Management

    Zac has worked out in several gyms and with several trainers. Angelino is the best. He believes small group fitness is the best way to get someone with no fitness background to reach their fitness goals safely and effectively.

    His life changed when he was 24, he lost 60 lbs and has kept it off ever since. He believes that maintaining one’s physical health is vital to one’s overall health. We live in a fast pace world and It can be difficult to make time for fitness. Zac wants Angelino to be a place where you make time for fitness, catch up with friends, plan fun events, and support one another’s fitness goals.

    Many people say, “CrossFit is hard,” or “I don’t wanna get hurt;” these people need to give Angelino a chance. We can train anyone at any level. Our goal is to bring fitness regularity to people’s lives in a small group/personal training environment. Our coaching and community are the difference.

    “Keep showing up and be mindful of your body”
