Carl’s passion for bettering himself and those around him came after a long battle against obesity. In 9 months Carl lost over 100 pounds and has kept it off for more than 15 years.
In high school Carl excelled in sports and competed in the Texas State Championship in Power Lifting, and was an All-District Football player. He also participated in other sports, such as basketball, track, and baseball. After high school he went on to receive a Football Scholarship to University of Texas at El Paso where he played the position of Defensive End.
In the late 90's, Carl worked at a national fitness franchise as a program director. One day while sitting in his office Carl had a vision of something that looked like a sewer pipe. It was all black inside with sewerage running down it. So Carl prayed and The Lord revealed that this was how his people were taking care of his temple, their bodies. And how it grieved him. Carl answered the call of God and became a trainer. He enjoyed great success as one of the top trainers in the nation. Then Carl left the national fitness franchise and later in 2002 he and his wife founded FITChurch.
