About Us


A Client-Centered Fitness Trainer at Your Service

Carlos O. Moran Certified Personal Trainer, ACSM COTA/L

I came to the U.S. from Ecuador when I was 5 years old. I was a skinny kid, physically awkward, and playing sports did not come easily for me. I felt very different from the other kids in school, especially the tall, athletic ones who just seemed to tower over me.

At 17, I enrolled in a weight training class that started my lifelong passion for fitness. Now just past 50, I continue to practice what I preach.

I earned my degree as a Certified Occupational Therapist at Becker College and became a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I have been training clients for over 30  years.

I founded SoulfulBody Fitness with my own unique client-centered philosophy that integrates mind and body training in custom-blended programs designed to address every client’s individual needs. I emphasize proper form, and my clients see results without the injuries that can happen with less experienced trainers.

I Place Great Value on People.

We are more than just the parts of us that we think need improvement. We are more than just a bicep or a number that measures our body weight. If we really want to make changes in our lives, the change has to start from within. The relationship between a trainer and a client must be based on honesty and trust to enable these changes to happen. I feel that for my clients to succeed with their goals, personal fitness training has to be “personal.”​


Our Philosophy:

Speaking Plainly About the Evolution of SoulfulBody Fitness


One Soul, One Body, One SoulfulBody

When I was in 9th grade in California, I enrolled in health class, and I will never forget what the teacher wrote on the blackboard when he first came into the classroom. He wrote:

“There are no problems in life, only challenges.”
