Biography

Noel was never an athletic kid or young adult. After years of struggling but not feeling better about himself, he decided to change his life for good and get healthy. After trying out everything from Insanity DVDs and various boot camp classes, at 36 years old, he eventually found CrossFit. After watching replays of the 2011 CrossFit Games, he was inspired and found a Groupon for CrossFit SoCal Tribe. From that point, he was hooked. Now he does his best to bring a fit, fun lifestyle to everyone he meets.

TRIBE has definitely become a second home. Being originally from the Bay Area, he doesn’t have a ton of friends around and his family mostly live 400 miles away. TRIBE has given him a new family. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’re treated like a long-lost relative. It’s a family of like-minded people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds who all want the same thing: to work on becoming the best version of themselves. We all have good days and bad days, and at TRIBE we get to celebrate and suffer together. Like he always says, when you’re at TRIBE, you may finish last, but you never finish alone. We are all #tribestrong
