Carlos Hernandez is a former Division 1 track athlete, and as Rise Performance Center’s founder and head trainer, he gives his gym the edge it needs to show clients results. Open gym memberships are available and group classes are offered at three intensity levels. Carlos and his team of trainers go beyond the standard strength and conditioning training found at most gyms. Core strength, mobility, stability and sustainability are all aspects of fitness that are points of focus at Rise Performance Center as well. Carlos brings the same experience and skill he has been putting on display since high school.

Currently, Carlos is training as a long jumper for the 2020 Olympics. He is the number seven all-time high school high jumper in the United States and holds the New Mexico state high jump record at 7 feet 3 inches out of Santa Teresa. Whether new to working out, getting back in shape, or a high school athlete looking for that competitive advantage, the 6,000-square foot facility is packed with equipment and features 100 feet of artificial turf and a 40-foot sandpit to work on an athletes speed and reaction time. Carlos and his team of trainers at Rise Performance Center believe to look like an athlete, you must train like one.
