I was looking for a coach who could do cycling and tri-athlon training. Angel , was great. He has done the sport himself and understood what I needed. We did butt heads on a few things, but he modified and progressed me to a win in Galena Tri-athlon sprint in 2014. So I would seriously follow his guidelines and he is also open minded to listening to your input. Be mindful he is very good at what he does and truly cares, but is not shy in telling you how it is either. That is what I really needed!

Coach Angel has worked with me the last 4 years. After my car accident it was hard to move around, my C3 and C4 were jammed up and my L5 was also effected. I spoke to several Doctors and all told me the same thing, “SURGERY”! I did not want this and someone refereed me to Angel and it has been nothing less then a blessing. He assessed me and asked a series of questions but in the end he helped strengthen my core and got me to a point where I can manage the pain and jog again. No surgery yet to this day. So I recommend him if you really need to start moving again he’s great!

I was feeling hopeless and thought no one was able to assist me in getting better! I went to countless doctors and specialists in searching for an answer to get past my injuries. I love sports, but I was very much in pain. Coach Angel, was referred to me by my close friend. He did not say that he would be able to do anything, but he stated he would try to get me moving again. To this day I am grateful for him working with me, he is tough and stubborn, but he has helped me in managing my day to day movements, and he constantly monitors. Now I said he’s tough but he is patient and truly cares and it shows in his training!
