Carlos Montoya | Coach
Hi, I’m Carlos…
I’m the youngest of four boys in my family. Growing up, my house was never short on testosterone or roughhousing. Between my brothers and I, we collectively played every sport known to man, and my mother, even though she worked like a dog and raised us on her own, never missed a single game. It’s because of her that we became the strong, smart, successful men we are today. We all learned at an early age the value of hard work and what it means to be driven to succeed.
My brothers and I were all pretty competitive when we were growing up (as brothers are known to be). I didn’t have much of a chance against my older brothers, but my identical twin, Marcos, and I were pretty evenly matched. As I got older, I stopped trying to beat them and started looking up to them. They’re incredible. Of my two oldest brothers, one plays professional hockey and the other played Division I football. They were a constant source of motivation for me to stay active and driven to grow big, strong and successful.
As I got older, I started working with my mother, a physician, and discovered my passion for taking care of people. Growing up as an athlete, I knew first-hand that getting injured is the worst thing that can happen, especially when you’re playing a sport and especially if it could have been prevented. A lot of injuries occur due to a lack of proper training and overall health. In school, I realized that a lot of sporting coaches don’t see past the end of the season. I made it my mission to train for a lifetime of fitness, not just a season, and I train my clients in that way as well. Fitness is a lifestyle choice – a choice to be healthy – not a seasonal requirement. There is no point in riding a fitness roller coaster and risking getting hurt.
At Conjugate Fitness, I take my coaching and my athletes very seriously; they know that when they’re being coached, they are there to work and get results. That isn’t to say we don’t have a good time; we’re known to have a powwow every now and then after training, but more than anything, my athletes are like a big family. We all care about and cheer for each other as a team – this isn’t a “me” show. We’re a community, and a big part of that is open and supportive communication. In the end, I don’t do this job for the money, I do it because I love the people I work with, the relationships we form as a team and as a family, and the healthy lifestyles we influence each day. I know that when your body is fit and healthy, you can do anything. I want to help each and every one of my clients become a driven, successful, and strong individual.

Hi, I’m Christos
When I was 29, I had a huge wake-up call when I realized I was almost 30 and was in terrible shape.
It happened one evening, on my way out to my job at a nightclub, when I found I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes anymore.
I decided that before my next birthday…
…I would lose 30 pounds. Although it was a really sad moment in my life, from that day on, everything changed.
Strength Coach Evolution
I first started my evolution as a strength coach with Conjugate Fitness about a year and a half ago, after having worked out here as an athlete.
I began learning about the ins and outs of the program, gaining knowledge of the system other than just lifting weights.
Our system has been PROVEN to work, and it has been proven to work fast. In fact, I challenge you to check out how amazingly fast Conjugate Fitness ™ system will deliver the results you’ve been looking for.

I started taking a hard look at the numbers, and was figuring out how to balance my body and help others balance theirs.
Through the help of the Conjugate University Coaching program…
…I NOW have the confidence and knowledge as a strength coach to help any athlete that is placed in front of me.
We use the Conjugate Method sequence system, a program that is well balanced and really works.
This program not only affects your physical strength, but it makes you mentally stronger and more focused…
…which has a positive impact on every aspect of a client’s life.
I’m motivated in this industry because it makes me feel good and gives me longevity. I have an overall sense of well-being now, and it’s great to have that in everyday life.
It has been around six years since I started making changes in my life, and I’ve come a long way. I’ve learned that working out isn’t just about going to the gym. It’s much more than that.
To optimize performance, clients must have:
- Proper Position
…or they’ll fail for sure.
I’ve also learned that trying to do too much at once can backfire on you, and I’ve seen it firsthand.
Naturally, as a strength coach one teaching style doesn’t work for everyone, so there has to be a certain amount of adjustment. I found that challenging at first, but it really helped me grow, and now I feel like I can take on anything.
My goal as a strength coach is to get as many people as strong as possible and to help them understand that working out and training needs to be done properly. I want to see my clients in the best shape of their lives and looking their best.
When I’m not at the gym, I love hanging out with my family…
…and educating myself more and more every day. I’m always growing as an individual, between yoga, sports, and spending time outdoors with my dog.
Working out is not something that I do just to blow off steam or to improve my look. This is something that is integral to my life, and I’m very happy that I’m able to share it with others every day.
