Lou grew up running around the beaches of Hawaii, he moved to Colorado as a young teen and has called Colorado home ever since. Lou has a wide background in different training methodologies, the clientele he has and continues to work with ranges from top competitive athletes, bikini and figure competitors, weekend warriors, stay-at-home moms, and everything in between. Lou takes pride that at the age of “50” he is in the best shape of his life. He contributes this to functional training, a good diet, solid rest, and overall love of simply being active. Lou wants to be an inspiration to those that believe they are “Over the Hill” and believes anyone can reach their fitness goals and is excited to be a part of that journey.
My turning point is quite the opposite of most. I was never an overweight or out-of-shape kid, in fact just the opposite. I grew up smaller than all of my friends and competitors. I got tired of being small so I started hitting the weights educating myself along the way with everything I could read and learn. Desperate to not be small anymore, I tried all diets, all training methods, and everything in between. I never saw real changes in my body until I learned the role of nutrition. My trials and personal successes and failures have put me in a position to help others not make the same mistakes I did.
Being a trainer allows me that rare opportunity to truly make a difference in someone's life. Seeing the excitement that comes with someone running their fastest time, lifting their heaviest weight, or losing those unwanted pounds...... is what drives me and fills me with joy.
