Mauricio Flor was born and raised on the coast of Ecuador where he fully enjoyed exploring nature and playing outside with his friends, his 3 younger brothers and his father. His mom was a very respected Ob. Doctor and her push for education were instrumental in his passion for learning and striving forward into a science-based career. Upon moving to the U.S. at age 17, he took on a quest to discover new possibilities both in his own health and fitness and also getting to relate with his new neighbors and friends. This led him to connect with his passion in Human Health and Sciences and for helping others in his community.

 

As a result, he has worked in the fitness industry for over two decades and has developed extensive knowledge in fitness and conditioning and rehabilitation/recovery. Mauricio works with clients of all ages, assessing clients’ specific fitness goals and creating customized fitness plans to fit their health and wellness needs. Mauricio’s enthusiastic and smartly-designed workouts combined with his amazing massage offers a unique combination that clients truly value and discover th ey can feel, look and move better.

 

According to Mauricio’s mom, his career in the fitness industry started at the age of nine months old when he went straight to running! Mauricio loves moving fast and has trained and run marathons, triathlons, and other competitive races and competitions. He has practiced and competed in martial arts and extreme hiking/camping and incorporates some of this into his fitness training programs for clients.

 

Mauricio embraces a holistic approach to coaching clients – even if a client doesn’t love to exercise and move, Mauricio helps clients to enjoy the process and achieve the results they want. Mauricio loves studying functional movement and exploring how the human body can perform in the physical realm, as well as the emotional and mental benefits that physical activities offer to people of all ages. He loves outdoor activities such as camping, backpacking, hiking, running and working out with his wife, Katie. His own workout regimen is geared toward preparedness, optimal movement function and performance.
