hello, i’m omar castillo

Hi I’m Omar CastilloI was born in Dominican Republic and raised in Harlem NY. As a teenager I got introduced to fitness and I have loved it since, dedicating myself to look and feel the best I can despite my age. I’ve been an avid gym goer since the age of 14 and still continue to prioritize my fitness.  My true passion is music, I’ve always enjoyed playing the piano, creating music and listening to creative pieces by old composers or new musicians. 

I received my bachelor’s in Exercise Science in 2014 from Lehman College located in the Bronx, NY,  and I obtained my Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from the University of St Augustine for Health Science in 2021. During my time in undergrad I developed a greater passion for fitness as I was now able to put the science behind it, and during this time I also grew an interest for physical therapy. I worked as a personal trainer for several years between commercial gyms and a private studio until getting into PT school where I still trained on the side while getting through physical therapy school.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family taking my daughters to different parks and going on different adventures during the weekends. I also enjoy traveling and seeing different parts of the world and learning different cultures.As a trainer and now as a physical therapist, my goal has always been to encourage my client/patients that they are capable of accomplishing more than what they believe they can.
