TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.
I’m 27 yrs old. Moved to Houston about a year ago from PR for work. I used to play sports. I love my dog and all other dogs.

Ring muscle ups – if I ever do one I’ll get a hippo tattoo
WHAT IMPACT HAS CROSSFIT HIPPO HAD ON YOUR LIFE IN AND OUT OF THE GYM?
CrossFit Hippo definitely made me a healthier person. Now I eat better and feel better. It also impacted my social life, friends are tired of getting videos of me doing lifts.
WHAT MAKES CROSSFIT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FITNESS PROGRAMS THAT YOU’VE TRIED IN THE PAST?
The competition against yourself, the community, the coaches, No big egos just support and motivation.
