Carlos Montoya

Carlos Montoya is the owner and founder of CrossFit Impact. Growing up as an athlete, he knew first-hand that getting injured is the worst thing that can happen, especially when you’re playing a sport and especially if it could have been prevented. A lot of injuries occur due to a lack of proper training and overall health. In school, he realized that a lot of sporting coaches don’t see past the end of the season. He made it his mission to train for a lifetime of fitness, not just a season, and he trains his clients in that way as well. Fitness is a lifestyle choice – a choice to be healthy – not a seasonal requirement. There is no point in riding a fitness roller coaster and risking getting hurt.

At CrossFit Impact, Carlos takes his coaching and his athletes very seriously; they know that when they’re in class, they are there to work and get results. That isn’t to say they don’t have a good time; they’re known to have a powwow every now and then after class, but more than anything, his athletes are like a big family. They all care about and cheer for each other as a team – this isn’t a “me” show. They’re a community, and a big part of that is open and supportive communication. In the end, he doesn’t do this job for the money, he does it because he loves the people he works with, the relationships they form as a team and as a family, and the healthy lifestyles they influence each day. He knows that when your body is fit and healthy, you can do anything. He wants to help each and every one of his clients become a driven, successful, and strong individual.
