We first met Louie many months before our wedding. Louie came highly recommended from our cousin who worked out with him before her wedding. She was in incredible shape for her big day and we needed to know who she had worked out with so we would look our best for our wedding.
Louie is not just a personal trainer, he set us up to lead a healthy lifestyle and motivated us to work our hardest. He advised us on our diets and developed a program to maintain when we weren’t in the gym with him. When we went on vacation he gave us a program to do outside of the gym.
Louie encouraged, motivated and took a personal interest in our fitness. He even accompanied us to fitness classes outside of training with him. We absolutely enjoyed working out with him and we were both in peak physical and mental shape for the big day.
We knew that the wedding was not the end of our training with Louie, it was the beginning of a healthy lifestyle. Working with Louie is a pleasure, he is not just our personal trainer but has become our friend. We would recommend working with Louie to anyone who wants to take their health and fitness seriously while having a lot of fun working hard.

I started training with Louie around two and a half years ago. I noticed him training some other women in the building gym so finally decided to ask if he had room for more clients. Fortunately for me, he did. At that time, I exercised around 3 days a week (mainly cardio) and felt like I was in decent shape. Well I learned quickly that ‘decent’ was more like ‘fair’.
Louie evaluated my strengths and weaknesses (from a physical level), learned about my habits (good and bad) and very quickly we were in a routine. This routine did not begin and end in our two sessions each week. It continued multiple times a day as I shared with him my food intake and other cardio activity. We set reasonable goals early on. Louie was there every step of the way to help me achieve them. Yes, I had to do the work, but without his support there would have been no advancement.
After a few months I started to see tremendous change in my appearance (and pretty much became hooked on Louie). No, I did not have a lot of weight to lose but I did have some - and certainly had some muscle strength to gain. Louie worked with me not just on how much I was eating but what I was eating, and getting to the right mix of fat, protein and carbs. I am now so much more conscientious about what I eat (and drink). All thanks to Louie.
Louie became more than a trainer early on. To this day I describe him as my trainer/therapist (and friend). His easy going, warm personality made me feel like I could open up – and I did. Not only does Louie give me great advice on my physical wellbeing, he also gives me guidance on everything from dating to my career. And did I mention that we laugh too? A lot.
When I was offered a great job in the Bay area, one of the top items on the con list was leaving Louie. In my opinion, that says it all. Working with Louie has given me more confidence both from a physical and mental perspective. Invaluable, in my opinion. Thank you Louie. Thank you.
