He is also an amazing mentor for whatever I have needed on my fitness journey, He is an incredible fitness trainer but also continues to lead and mentor his students long after the training has ended through classes, workshops, social media, and passion for what he does.

    My Hero and idol! Angel breaks the mold of a trainer/fitness professional and he knows just how to get people excited for fitness!
  • at 1:23 am on 1.26.14
    Angel is a humble,approachable and beautiful man. As an Athlete he inspires, entertains and leads with passion and authenticity. Angel is always willing to extend himself to assist others in reaching their fitness goals. I've seen how he trains from his personal itube videos and am aware of the grueling process that it takes to become a Les Mills DVD Presenter and Head trainer for Combat. I believe that his years of experience, the range of programs that he can teach; Body Combat- Cardio, Body Pump- Weight bearing and Body Flow- Thai Chi,Yoga and Pilates, backed up by he's own crazy training regime, gives him unquestionable FIT status.
  • at 1:08 am on 12.22.13
    Angel is amazing. If you are standing right next to him, in his class or hundreds of miles away his passion and positive attitude are contagious.
  • Linda Fung at 4:27 am on 12.06.13
    It has been about 8 years ago since I first took Body Combat with Angel. After the first class I was hooked with this fitness program. Angel was a big reason why I fell in love with this program. He is definitely a fitness super star. Angel's dedication to delivering the most effective workouts and his creativity is one of a kind. He delivers his workouts with precision on the safety and setup on coaching. He also demonstrates strong techniques on his moves. His classes are always packed!!! The class numbers don't lie. Angel Santiago is definitely FIT and and not a flop!!!
  • Sonny B at 3:10 am on 12.06.13
    Angel is a very technical and inspirational mentor. I have learned so much from him and learned to love the brand we are affiliated with. He is very dynamic and versatile when it comes to fitness trainings. (Jack of all trades in martial arts!) Because of this versatility, i think he can really come up with his own program that is very effective and better than any other programs out there. You have my full support, Bro! Kiah!
  • at 12:18 am on 12.05.13
    Angel is a great instructor and motivates you to do any move he does at your 100%. He is a true inspiration and if we had more instructor like him we would have a fitter planet!!!! He is awesome... makes you want to train like him. Best Best Best Fitness Star
  • Noelle Stevens at 7:12 pm on 12.04.13

    I look forward to Wednessday night every week because I know not only will I get a kick ass work out with Angel but I ALWAYS learn something new. He is an incredible instructor and motivator and his amazing personality comes through in every class. That's when the magic happens!!
  • at 10:01 am on 12.04.13
    I took my first Body Combat from Angel just 4 short years ago... It took me about 4 classes to get it and since then I've been addicted! The classes are so much fun, and Angel brings such a large personality to the class. I will always take his class every day that I can. Not only are the classes fun, but they are fierce and they make me feel stronger than ever. I generally don't love to work out. But I absolutely love Les Mills/Angel Santiago! What a motivator!
  • at 3:41 am on 12.04.13
    I am a dancer at heart but when I take Combat from Angel at quarterly workshops I think I am a ninja warrior!!!!!! His passion is contagious and he wears his heart on his sleeve. He is humble and wants people to fall in love with fitness. Love from Pittsburgh Angel!!!
  • at 2:33 am on 12.04.13
    Angel is the person who took me to the next level in body combat. He has made me the instructor I am today,and it has made me the teacher I am today. I moved from Wisconsin to Florida, and I was hired instantaneously as a bodycombat instructor due to his guidance from the advanced instructor module. He will make anybody push their limits, and he deserves a shot at this program.
  • Jennifer G at 2:26 am on 12.04.13
    I took my first ever Body Combat class with Angel just last month. What a great program and great instructor. I love the intensity he brings to the class!
  • Jackie Weisberger at 2:20 am on 12.04.13
    When you take Angel's Bodycombat class, he gets you to be in the moment, to leave your baggage at the door & just focus on you. It's a natural high & you leave feeling spent, strong & successful! Love the program, and really love what he brings to it!
