Angel has been playing competitive sports from the age of 7 years old. He became a firefighter in 2005. Shortly thereafter, he discovered Crossfit and appreciated the camaraderie of it all. He liked how people of different backgrounds come together to test their limits and realized it was a seamless transition from the fire service. In 2013 Angel became a Level 1 Crossfit Trainer and opened IC Crossfit with brothers Jose and Shaun. Angel is passionate in helping athletes attain their fitness goals.
