Yoel struggled with his weight and eating habits from a young age. This prompted him to change his diet and start going for daily jogs around his early teenage years. By highschool, he was making ways with the track team and cross country team. After several years of running, Yoel realized his true passion was in the weightroom, as he loved the atmosphere and helping his friends.

He worked at a couple of big box gyms before meeting Mike Salazar at Evolution Fitness. This opened many new opportunities for Yoel including being able to work with his client's in a much more hands on way. He now focuses is on understanding each client's individual needs, and in return works to create a program that suits his or her goal.
