Hugo is a born and bred New Yorker with a life-long passion for fitness and conditioning. He began his journey in calisthenics and bodybuilding and was then drawn to Muay Thai where he became an amateur competitor. Originally thinking law enforcement or the military was his future, Hugo earned a degree in criminal justice from John Jay College and went to Seal Fit training, where he was one of the fittest in his class. But the defining moment in his life was when he discovered Crossfit. This unleashed a fire in Hugo. He delved into everything from nutrition, to body movement and mechanics, programming, coaching, and beyond.
Now, after a decade in the Crossfit world – training, learning, teaching, and being mentored by Justin Cotler – Hugo has become certified CF Level 3 and is Head Coach and Programmer for Dynamix Fitness NYC.
Hugo loves coaching his athletes and mentoring his coaches on how to teach, see, correct, and improve movement and performance. He can’t wait to show the Underdogs what he has to offer!!
