Coach Jonas Acevedo

I am a graduate of Texas Tech University and I hold a Personal Training Certification through The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I have an extensive background working with professional and high school athletes, and a background in corrective exercise with a focus on mobility. My passion is to work with athletes to make them a better version of themselves on and off the field.

Athletic Career

I began as a high school athlete playing football and competing in powerlifting. After I graduated from high school, I began competing in triathlons as well as road races. I have a fascination for this sport and its athletes. I competed in my first triathlon in September of 2009 and have been hooked ever since! I also have a great interest in Olympic Weightlifting. I am always looking for ways to become a better version of myself!

My interest in strength and conditioning arose from being a high school athlete and has since transferred to many different areas. I have competed in endurance sports, half marathons, and cycling races. I have also participated in sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, Tough Mudders, and I am currently training for my first Olympic weightlifting meet. Through my vast experience I have been able to gain an extensive background in sports performance and strength and conditioning.

Professional Career

My professional career in the fitness industry began in 2015. I had just become certified through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)¬†while pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Sport Science from Texas Tech University.

A year later I moved to Austin, Texas to complete an assistantship at an athletic training facility. Officially graduating with my bachelor’s degree in May 2015, I decided to stay in Austin and continue my career here. I currently train clients at Coach Mo’s Elite Fitness and have the opportunity to use my background in strength and conditioning coaching to work training youth athletes and roller derby teams.
