Carlos Gibson


Carlos grew up in Dunmore, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Manayunk. He participated in intramural sports throughout his life, with basketball eventually becoming his sport of choice. Carlos was IFTA certified in college where he designed fitness training programs for friends and family. During a time when he was practicing Jui Jitsu, a friend introduced him to CrossFit. He visited a box in 2009 and soon discovered the passion for fitness he was looking for.

Carlos started coaching at CrossFit in 2013 and quickly learned that teaching proper technique to others has translated into improving his own skills as a coach and athlete. He looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experience with the athletes of CrossFitT1 while continuing his own quest for elite fitness and overall wellness. Carlos is also the founder of Redemption, a charity that raises awareness for drug and alcohol addiction.
