We had the good fortune of connecting with Carlos Mata and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Carlos, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
Simply put, I want my legacy to be remembered by empowering others to see the value inside them utilizing fitness as a projection of what they see in themselves. I am a firm believer that our bodies represent how we carry ourselves and respect ourselves. I have a huge passion to not only make people feel better about themselves, but to learn how to believe in themselves, push through challenges, and accomplish goals (short term and long) in the gym that resonates in their life’s outside the fitness center.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Sigma Performance Training is a fitness center dedicated to personal training and pilates. We pride ourselves in the belief that you treat clients with respect, while educating and guiding your client to achieving and maintaining the goal set. What separates us from others is the compassion. Many times, fitness trainers and gyms treat each client as a dollar sign. Sigma believes in respecting the value of the person by being truthful and quickly delivering results on a personal level with respect, fun and compassion!
While it was not easy to start the building of the business, our valued clients helped us transition into our new space and make Sigma feel like a community and home for all. Currently, we hold over 100 Personal training clients with a team of 5 fitness professionals.
One note to take away, respect and listen to your clients. They are the soundboard to your fitness business that will evaluate your business to success.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The Post is an amazing spot to take people to! Great atmosphere and energy all around! If you want a nice cup of coffee, try Anonymous! For a friendly dinner that is aways warm and loving, aBouzy is a great option.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My career and life has so many influencers that directed me to this career and set me up for success, but the biggest person is my business partner, Mirna. She has always been a huge driver on directing my success in a positive direction for over 4 years, encouraging my success and life to be positive and meaningful for me to be able to give back to others in my life. Every partnership is challenging, but successful teams understand the weaknesses and strengths, and look to use those attributes to elevate success inside and out of their careers.
