Meet Your Coach: Amoila Cesar

Born in 1988 in West Palm Beach, Amoila Cesar was raised by a single mother alongside his seven siblings. As the middle child, Amoila quickly learned the importance of resilience and self-reliance. Amoila’s passion for fitness blossomed during his college years. In 2013, he earned his first NASM CPT training certification. He graduated from The University of Central Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, combining Exercise Science and Radio Television with a Minor in Psychology.

After moving to Los Angeles, his first job in the fitness industry was at LA Fitness as a Personal Training Developer, where he taught sales, coaching, and human interaction. He soon launched his own business, quickly establishing himself as one of the top Celebrity/Athlete Strength and Conditioning Coaches in LA. In 2019, Amoila joined Beachbody as the eighth Super Trainer, propelling himself to the top of the fitness world with his program, THE WORK. This six-week, performance training program focuses on six key elements: strength, hypertrophy, endurance, power, agility, and mobility. THE WORK sold over 24 million copies in just 18 months.

Amoila’s subsequent successes include his 645 Program and his latest venture, the Fountain of Youth program called “Chop Wood Carry Water.” Amoila has been working in New York since 2022 – current year full-time independent contractor with the New York Knicks as Performance Coach and Health Advisor for Julius Randle

“Join us at Designed By Health Retreat and be part of a wellness epidemic that places natural medicine and the science of nutrition at the forefront of the healthcare landscape. Together, we will keep discovering, connecting, and fearlessly advocating for the greater good. Experience the new paradigm of health and well-being with us.”
