Coach Felix Manjarrez

Since 2015 I have been detailed to the New York City Fire Academy, assigned to the Health & Fitness Unit. With my 20 years of service and experience in the New York City Fire Department, 3 of which began with EMS, I have been fortunate enough to have mentored and coached over 3100 Probationary Fire Fighters.

In addition, although no longer coaching in the discipline, I am a committed practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2005. I am currently a Brown Belt under JT Torres and practicing this passion at Essentials Jiu Jitsu & Fitness . I have taken the lessons from my coaching experience in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts, to explicate the diversity of Fitness.

I humbly continue to use myself as a client; refining my skill sets, evolving, and overcoming my limitations, all of which allows me to translate the language of movement to those who are first attempting a more active lifestyle. Coaching has motivated me and sparked my passion for self-development. My personal goals are to constantly and consistently increase self-proficiency and strengthen & preserve longevity. To successfully help others obtain growth via Fitness is my earnest ambition.
