Angel Gonzalez, Seminar Coach
Angel has been an athlete his whole life – participating in multiple sports from elementary school through college. After college, on a vacation in Hawaii, Angel acquired a virus while surfing that attacked his spine. Despite having to change how he participated in sports, Angel says the passion for competing never truly goes away. He began to seek out opportunities to compete such as wheelchair basketball and rugby.
A successful VP in a construction company in TX, a friend came to Angel to ask him to invest in his new CrossFit box. Originally planning to be a silent partner, Angel started researching the sport and attending competitions. The community atmosphere even amongst the fiercest of competitors was inspiring. As he learned more, Angel decided he would not only invest in the gym, but wanted to coach and make his gym a welcome place for adaptive athletes.
He continues to evolve as a coach and an athlete, learning more about how the body moves and finding new ways to build community, grow, and adapt CrossFit. Angel is a Crossroads Adaptive Athletic Alliance Seminar Coach and his box, CrossFit Redefined (FB: r3edfined) was the first to request to host multiple seminars. He has also started WOD 4 Wheels (#WOD4Wheels) designed originally to provide an inclusive competitive opportunity for wheelchair CrossFit athletes.« Back
