Camila Velez (Coach)

Hi, my name is Camila, I’m a senior at UCF studying sport and exercise science. I am from Orlando, particularly from Orange County so I am very familiar with OCPS. I previously worked with high school and middle school aged children at a club rowing team. There I worked 2 years hand in hand with the head coach, to teach, implement, and practice the sport of rowing. After gaining experience with the older age group, I decided it was time to gain experience with a younger age group, now working with Cortiz fitness, I am able to combine my love for teaching and fitness, to my passion for working with children.

Some of my favorite sports/games to play with the kids include: never ending tag, silent speed ball, and flag football!
Apart from working, during my free time, I love to spend it hanging with close friends and family, whether it’s enjoying a meal together or simply sitting around to talk and enjoy each other’s company. I also enjoy farmers markets and art festivals on the weekend.

Cortiz Fitness, and Fit kidz 4 fun as allowed me to enjoy and learn the joy of working with elementary schools.” .
