Member Spotlight: Moises Carvajal Ruiz

Meet Moises: the most Deadpool-loving, twin girl dad-being, hard-working fruit vendor/Spanish coach you’ve ever met. Also if you’ve ever come to a class with him and you wonder why he creeps up on a coach to whisper “coach can I take a shower” after every single class it is because Sadie accidentally locked him in the gym while he was showering. Twice. 

 

Q:  Why did you start CrossFit and what is your favorite thing about it?

A: I started CrossFit because I like the idea of group exercise. Going to the gym alone is so boring. My favorite thing about it is that I don’t have to think about what exercises to do that day (Yeah, I’m lazy) — I just go there and do exactly what the coaches say! It’s great.

 

Q: Please tell us about being a fruit vendor and how you got into that business!

A: I started my fruit truck business through my family! In 2017, I was visiting my family down in Houston and began working for them, and I really enjoyed it. I traveled to Mexico a bit but wound up back In Houston, where I worked for a couple more months before deciding to stay in Houston and continue working with my uncle. After a while, I saved up enough to get my own truck! I needed new customers, so I moved to Austin so I wouldn’t be competing with my Uncle and his current customers. 

 

Q: What is the best thing that you have in your truck? 

A: Hmmmm… the best thing… I really like the sweet bread! 

 

Q: Where did you live before you were in Austin?

A: I lived in Houston for 6 months, and before that, I lived in Veracruz, Mexico. 

Next time you’re at the 8a or 11:30a, or just need a hit of some fruit (or sweet bread!), say hello to Moises! We love you, Moises. We’re so glad you’re here!
