Originally from Guatemala, Hugo de León is a former firefighter and softball coach. Both disciplines taught him the importance of having a strong general fitness base as the foundation of any physical activity, whether for high performance sports or in daily life.
Hugo is committed to developing both the physical and mental strength of his athletes. He believes that exercise and an athlete’s achievements inside the gym transfer to success in all aspects of daily life. He’s worked with active duty military, first responders, law enforcement, as well as athletes just beginning their fitness journey or those coming back from an injury, always in a safe and effective way.
As a personal trainer, Hugo has had the opportunity to work with highly competitive athletes in baseball, softball, soccer, boxing, and karate. He also coached the 2019 CrossFit national champion from Guatemala, and a regional Latin American qualifying team in 2014. Most recently he’s worked with a female athlete (Teens division) who finished 32nd in the world during the 2021 CF Online Qualifier.
