Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlos Espinal.
Carlos, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Fitness is my passion.
I started lifting weights when I was about 16 years old in the Dominican Republic and every day was a new experience. When I moved to the USA, I was not looking to be a Fitness Trainer but a great persona contacted me and asked me to train him and I declined because I was not certified. I used to train friends and families but this person wanted to pay so he told me to get certified and he will be my first client.
I got my certification a few months later and got my first client, I started to do a private training session in my client’s house’s or their gym facilities. During the weekend, I manage to get a small group and started to do bootcamp training at the park.
Moving forward a few years later, I get to a gym and a few months later, this gym had to close their doors and my clients requested to provide their training in my house because lived close so I started to do it and this last a few months until another client took me to this Gym, Tamarac Fitness Center, this is the gym that helps my business to grow.
Now, my business “Team Fitness 3D” is partnering with Tamarac Fitness Center and I have the pleasure to live my passion. After a full-time job as a warehouse manager, I go to this Gym to distress myself enjoying every second that I train a client. This is the kind of job that I can do without pay is more than just my passion, it is what makes me feel alive.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I can’t say it been smooth, it’s been an adventure. I have time ups and downs like any other person but thank God for my wife Jasmin that supports me and gives me the strength I need to keep moving forward.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Team Fitness 3D – what should we know?
Team Fitness 3D was born from the idea of my brother who is also a personal trainer.
Fitness 3D is “Discipline Dedication and Determination” are what leads a person to achieve each of their goals.
I decided to create Team Fitness 3D because my brother supports me a lot so I consider us a team.
I do personal training to anyone that needs help to achieve any goal. I specialize in Fat Loss, muscle development and Functional training. I’m known for my heart, I put my heart on every customer and try to do what it takes to help them to reach their personal goal.
As a company, I’m proud of the trust that my clients put on me.
What set me apart from the others? I don’t look at this as a Job. When you love what you do, your people can feel it, and they express this to you. People who knows me can feel and sense that this is my passion.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My wife Jasmin Acosta, because no men can succeed without a great woman by their side.
Travis Rauh, my first client and the one that makes me get my certification telling me that he will be my first client and get certified.
Robert Tamaro. The client who took me to Tamarac Fitness Center. This was a big hit, because of this, now, I’m partnering with this gym.
To all my clients, because they are more than just clients, they are friends.
