Cristobal has been an active member of the fitness community since the age of 13 and has over a decade of personal training and coaching experience. He is an avid believer in the importance of optimal health through proper movement and nutrition. Cris found himself looking for more than the typical “bodybuilding” routine and was fortunate to stumble upon a CrossFit gym on the West Coast in 2008. Building upon his early personal training career (starting at age 18 at Gold’s Gym), he became a CrossFit certified L1 coach in 2011, ultimately leading him down his current path to where he is now. He specializes in personally assessing each individual in order to optimize their specific movement patterns based on their current fitness level, personal goals, and anatomical differences.
He is a recent graduate of D’Youville College, holding a Doctorate in Chiropractic, where he continues to help others in their journey towards health. Cristobal specializes in gymnastics and kettlebells and draws upon 11+ years of experience to help make CrossFit Amherst the premier CrossFit gym in Buffalo, NY.
He has ran multiple half marathons, enjoys participating in any and all sports, and continues to train both in an out of the gym on a daily basis. Practicing what he preaches, he tries to always inspire others to “Always Be Better.”
