This week on the #CLP we are joined by Calisthenics, street workout expert, and Master Trainer Carlos Salos. Carlos is a Venezuelan born coach based out of Toronto and dedicated to pushing forward the Calisthenics movement in Toronto, think break dancing or parkour a decade ago. Carlos was gracious enough to sit down with us and discuss his journey, working through an ACL injury and how an exchange program to Venice Beach led to a love for the pull-up bar. Carlos has spent the last 5 years immersing himself in the culture to better his life and the lives of his clients. If you like the episode be sure to review and share!
