Founder & Owner
Originally from Puerto Rico, I came to Albuquerque with my husband, Javier Hernandez, in 1998. For my day job, I am a practicing physician and have been serving our New Mexico community since 1998. I absolutely love what this state has to offer. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and of course, CrossFit. Family and health is incredibly important to us, especially since our two boys are incredibly active and inspire us to stay fit. Javier and I started doing CrossFit in 2012 and made the jump to become CrossFit Kids trainers in 2016. That same year we started the CrossFit Kids program.
Our goal with the CrossFit Thunderhawk Rio Rancho program is to help develop critical skills that your child or teen needs to become a well-rounded student and athlete, while having fun. We continually focus on having a positive and lasting impact on the kids and teens we work with, building a stronger, healthier, fitter generation that is family strong.
