PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENT & INTERESTS
Louis’s interest in health and fitness is astonishing when viewed through the eyes of his childhood. Raised by two grandmothers that exhibited love through food, Louis and his brother grew up in an environment that lived on the go eating fast food along with large portions of unhealthy home cooked meals. Early on, Louis’ friends nicknamed him “Big Lou” in honor of his big mouth, big appetite, and his big body! Today, the name has evolved into Coach Lou.
Louis graduated from Long Beach State University with a degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education. In 2001, he received an opportunity to work at Los Angeles Southwest Junior College as the first Strength and Conditioning Coach for both football and basketball programs. Under his leadership, Louis organized team workouts, designed programs, and designed the first strength and conditioning manual at Los Angeles Southwest Junior College. He also designed strength and conditioning programs for local high school football programs.
With demonstrated leadership in the health and fitness arena, Louis moved on to work as a Physical Education Specialist with Little Company of Mary. In this position, Louis taught elementary and middle school students along with teachers how to be physically active and enjoy movement through a structured program called Moving Children. This is where Louis received his experience creating exciting fitness programs, conducting training seminars and developing coaches and teachers.
His infectious personality has helped him become one of the most requested fitness professionals among children and adults. Currently, Louis is coaching middle and high school kids, leading small group adults classes and one-on-one sessions at World Gym in Peachtree City.
