How were you introduced to NorCal Strength and Conditioning?

Dr. Fragoso, about two and a half years back. Then again with Tom F. who convinced me to sign up.

Favorite WOD/lift:

Lift: It would be a tie between the dead lift and the front squat.

WOD:  Filthy Fifty. It’s brutal and insane, but at the end, you feel like you just made it to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

1 word people used to describe me:


Outside of the gym I like to:

Photography, Cooking, Wake boarding, Hiking in Upper Bidwell, Being Outdoors, Watching the History Channel, Researching new ways to maintain or improve health. And just being around down-to-earth people who just like to lay back and relax over some wine on a hot summer night with a fat steak on the BBQ.

Three things you would ALWAYS find in my fridge:

Fish Oil


Various veggie assortments in individual baggies (no…not perfectionist at all, ha, ha).

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me:

My nationality is Cuban/Puerto Rican. I was raised by my aunt and her husband from age 8.

Favorite physical activity outside of NorCal Strength and Conditioning:

Running….nuf said!

Favorite place to eat in Chico:

Hmmm. That’s a three way tie between Pluto’s, Sin of Cortez and Leon’s Bistro.

Song that gets me pumped up for a workout:

Shiny Toy Guns – Le Disko

The last thing you ate:

Fresh Thai Young Coconut

Proudest accomplishment:

Finding the person people spend their whole lives looking for.

6 Month goal:

Do an L-sit pullup!

If you could invite ANYBODY (currently alive or not) over for dinner, who would you invite? Why?

God, because I have about 5 billion questions for him.

Favorite work out attire:

Whatever is clean…it might be Lulu Lemon soon…

Here’s a little Le Disko to get you pumped cool smile
