Meet our newest coach Abel Aldana. Crossfit Level 1 Trainer NASM CPT Women’s Fitness Specialist Abel grew up in Los Banos from the age of 7. From then on til Junior high, athletics were not a pursuit. Reaching a weight of 280lbs by 2008/8th grade, he was able to change his bad habits early. Through help of articles on the internet, a bowflex, simple green tea, some dumbells, steady-state cardio and a year’s worth of hard work, he reached a weight of 165lbs by sophomore year. The mindset of constant progression never changed. Joining his first gym, Los Banos Fitness and Racquet Club in 2010, it lead on to a pursuit of strength and size. By 2012, that coupled with running an Urbanathlon and ultimately trying his first month out at CFVV. By 2013 it led onto another Urbanathlon, and then his first weightlifting meet by 2014. Through 8 years of dabbling with all sorts of specificities, obtaining many different bodyweights, fighting a conglomeration of injuries and rehabbing them himself, he then returned to CFVV after 2 1/2 years of working as the primary trainer at InShape City, having serviced 40+ people and aiding many more on his free time. Message from Abel: “If you’re looking for a place that facilitates maximal strength, excellent conditioning and competitive camaraderie, you’ve found the right place. I prefer coming here and training way more than any commercial gym, and having the opportunity to coach here is very fulfilling. Aside from my athletic endeavors, coaching and helping people is what really gets me through my day and I look forward to seeing any newcomer join this community.”
