Peter Santos, CF-L2 - Owner
My early career as a Firefighter/EMT is what led me to find CrossFit. I loved the way my new found “functional” fitness program helped me to perform better as a Firefighter and handle the rigors that the job entails.
I earned my Level 1 CrossFit certificate in the summer of 2008 and started training others. I have always had a passion for helping people and had plenty of opportunity as an EMT to treat the sick and injured. Being a CrossFit coach and owning my own affiliate has given me a new opportunity to not only to help the sick and unhealthy, but to be on the preventative side of the spectrum as well.
Establishing good habits through fitness and nutrition and helping people to reach their potential inside and outside of the gym is our mission here at CrossFit Bios. I look forward to helping you whatever your fitness goal may be.

Hey, I’m Eli!
I have spent the last 8 years in the fitness industry with a majority of that time as a functional fitness coach. Over the years I have acquired many different certifications ranging from my personal training certification with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, to an Olympic lifting level 1 certification with USAW under legendary coach Dave Spits from California Strength.
I have been an athlete all of my life, starting with gymnastics as a young child, to wrestling, cage fighting, bull riding & as a competitive CrossFit athlete. Through trial and error I have learned what works and what does not. My goal is to share with you all of my knowledge that I have acquired over the years to ensure you stay injury free and achieve your goals across the board.
I look forward to coaching, teaching and learning from all who take my sessions.

From early childhood I have been involved in multiple sports, including soccer, swimming and eventually focusing on track and field, which became my passion. I was training hours everyday hoping to one day make it to the Olympics. Due to a major, life changing injury, that dream never happened, but through many ups and downs, it brought me to CrossFit in mid 2016. With Peter’s coaching, guidance, support and mentoring, I came to love this sport. It has become part of my everyday life and I enjoy sharing it’s benefits with others. I find that it’s easy for me to relate to a majority of people out there who struggle to get healthier, lose weight and get stronger, because I have been through the phases of being fit, to being overweight, to becoming fit again.
My focus is always on proper movement and injury prevention and I love being able to help members reach their goals, through learning functional fitness and proper nutrition. Come join us and see how fun getting fit can be!
