As Head Coach, Karlos uses his outstanding programming skills to bring our member Athletes a varied Strength Training and “WOD” (Workout of the Day) each and every day. When Karlos was a young Spinning participant, he was singled out by the entire group of instructors as qualified to join them due to his excellent form, rhythm and speed in their classes. He quickly adapted to this new role of instructing and his passion for helping others improve and grow along with his skill level continued to grow. He built quite a reputation in the Spinning Community due to his “attention to detail” style of instructing and coaching. Karlos carried that same style and skill to his present job at Angelino CrossFit. Karlos will tell you that he loves helping others grow and develop in their healthy lifestyle and feels that it’s his passion and his calling.

He also holds an AA in Graphic Design and Certification in Multi-Media. His work experience post-graduation includes a large Print Shop and a 3-D Post-Production company as an Artist heading up several creative projects.
Karlos also held leadership positions with Keller Williams Realty as Agent Service Coordinator – helping over 100 agents grow their businesses using a multitude of tools. He was quickly promoted to the position of Marketing Coordinator where he was able to apply his Graphic Design skills. Having spent 3 years in these positions, he was on the start-up team of the new DTLA Keller Williams Regional Office.
Having succeeded at Keller Williams, Karlos moved up to the position of Director of Marketing at a Law Firm in Glendale where he led the overall Marketing programs for the Real Estate arm of the firm.
