Born in México, Armando started racing motocross professionally when he was 8 years old. He raced in Mexico’s Motocross Nationals in 2014 and 2015, and in the Motocross Latin American Championship in 2015 representing Mexico. All of this was possible thanks to the fitness level that CrossFit gave have given him over many years. He started CrossFit in 2013 and instantly fell in love with that rush of adrenaline that it gives you when the “3..2..1..go” hits. He has since continued to use CrossFit to support his health and to help him in the endurance that Motocross demands. He moved to San Diego in August 2017, where I started studying Mechanical Engineering in San Diego Mesa College.
“I’m looking forward for the next time I see you down at the deck! I became a coach because I wanted to share with others what it feels to learn to do a new movement, or to get a 1lbs PR, or to lose 1% in body fat. Whatever the goal is, to have the satisfaction of making progress towards that goal. Every accomplishment goes with a feeling, an adrenaline, a satisfaction. I also want to do this my way, a way that I would like to be taught, a way that I would like to be helped getting closer to that goal.”
