A CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and marketing major, Rodrigo (R1) Molina is passionate about working out and a fitness lifestyle. Born and raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala, growing up, Rodrigo has always enjoyed being active and playing sports such as soccer, football, boxing, and volleyball. Despite his on-field adventures, he struggled with his confidence at a young age, and it was until 2014 that he started his CrossFit journey alongside working on improving his nutrition.
Rodrigo enjoyed living the CrossFit lifestyle, by eating clean and exercising almost daily. He took a year break to focus on his football training, and once it was done, he went all out and achieved his CrossFit Level 1 in 2019. A firm believer in continuous learning, Rodrigo moved to Kamloops in 2019 to attend university, and as fate would have it, he ended up finding his second home at TCSC. Working alongside peers and friends who love the workout at TCSC are part of his huge motivation to push himself both inside and outside the gym. After school and family, life at TCSC takes priority either through coaching or just working out. Rodrigo often goes on complex tangents about how to strategize a workout. He also always describes things as "super fun," even when they are very challenging! He seeks to push his class attendees to maximize their experience in his class.
Outside the TCSC gym life, Rodrigo enjoys hanging out with friends, having good food, and trying the different local breweries Kamloops has to offer.
