Bio/Background

With more than 20 years experience in fitness, recreation and sports as an administrator, personal trainer, coach, and athlete, Louis Moore designs and coaches fitness and sports programs for youth, adults, seniors and persons with disabilities.  He works as senior superintendent with the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department managing various sports/fitness programs and park facilities.  He also coaches and trains individuals privately, coaches club soccer, and leads aquatic fitness classes in Houston.  Louis holds a M.S. in Physical Education and a B.S. in Recreation and Park Management from Old Dominion University.

Louis’ favorite leisure activities include fitness, soccer, reading, progressive rock music, photography, eating, surfing, traveling,and speaking Spanish.  He lives in Sugar Land, TX with his wife, Cida, and three beautiful children, Alicia, Marcos and Gabriel.

1.    When and why did you become a trainer?

I became a trainer in 2002 when I first became certified by the IFPA to help people enhance the quality of their life through personal training and coaching.

2.    What made you choose the IFPA?

Besides being one of the few ICE/NOCA/NCCA accredited organizations, I chose the IFPA because it is the most comprehensive certification organization by far that provides effective resources (courses, conferences, workshops, e-newsletter, website, etc.) to get results as a personal trainer.

In addition, the IFPA has created positive relationships with The American Academy of Anti-Aging (A4M) and numerous doctors worldwide in the field of integrative medicine (I don’t believe other certification organizations have done this at the same level), which I believe is important if you network with doctors.

And finally, the IFPA issues Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for their courses, and not just Continuing Education Credits (CEC’s).  To me this is important since I have used IFPA courses within the last 10 years with CEU’s to get recertified as a parks and recreation professional with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), which does not accept CEC’s.

I owe much of my success in the field of fitness to the IFPA.

3.    What is your training style & what methods do you use?

My wife (Cida) and I use a private personal training studio in Sugar Land, TX called Fleet Physique.  We specialize in training men and women in midlife and older get stronger, move better, and to feel better.  I work with the men and she focuses on training with women.  We lead various fitness programs, such Zumba, Total Body Shaping, Core Training, R.I.P.P.E.D., personal training, nutrition coaching, and educational workshops.  Our newest class is called “Metabolic 24,” which is a small group training class emphasizing high-intensity interval training.

The facility we use, Fleet Physique, is a modern fitness studio with 2,500 ft. for group fitness classes and private personal training.  It has an ultra nice sound system, cardio equipment, beautiful wooden floor, and an assortment of functional fitness equipment to train clients to bettter health and fitness, such as dumbbells, medicine balls, stability balls, elastic bands, kettle bells, TRX straps, full range of plyo boxes, adjustable pulley system, and a power rack for full spectrum of barbell exercises.

The main difference with our services is that we develop relationships with our clients and aim to have a connection.  We spend time with our clients before and after classes/sessions to learn their true needs and help them with their personal journey of health and fitness.  We also have monthly recreational events to encourage socialization and friendship amongst clients, such as a Christmas party, summer pool parties, picnics in the park with family, birthday parties, Halloween Party, and even a cruise to Mexico.  There are plenty of commercial fitness providers in the Sugar Land area (all the big ones) offering many of these same services at much lower rates, but our clients stay with us because we help them get results and make it an engaging process at the same time.

Additionally, I have developed key relationships with a couple of doctors in the Houston area who specialize in the area of Integrative Medicine and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).  The doctors handle everything to do with the medical evaluations, treatments, and prescriptions, and I train/coach the client in the areas of exercise workouts, nutrition coaching, and personal development.  It’s a win-win situation and benefits the client immensely when needing services beyond the scope of a personal trainer.

Philosophy:  “to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more in life.”

Mission:  to guide, educate and coach clients to adopt a fitness lifestyle and achieve a more functional and beautiful body through personal training, coaching, group fitness classes, aquatic fitness and sports.

My Job as a personal trainer and coach is to motivate and inspire clients to new levels of fitness excellence. I teach clients how to have a safe and effective workout to achieve their goals focusing on correct form, mental focus and visualization, awareness of muscle groups being trained, and level of intensity while having an enjoyable session. Additionally, I teach the principles of nutrition to properly fuel clients’ workouts and eat well.  The focus is to help clients prepare their body for functional activities, to avoid injury, and to gain an overall sense of well-being.

Niche:  “I specialize in holistic life coaching and personal training for men in midlife to rebuild their body, increase energy levels, and transform their life.”

4.    How do you keep your clients motivated?

I build relationships and get involved in their life outside of the gym as well.  I also challenge them to dream big and coach them to acquire their full potential in all areas of life.  And finally, I encourage clients to learn more about fitness, nutrition, spirituality, and wellness as a consistent, life-long process.

5.  If you have taken more than the PFT course, what has been your favorite certification course?

I enjoyed the Senior Fitness Specialist course.  It prepares you to work with the senior population and train them with various fitness methods to help make their life more functional and independent.  Working with this clientele is very rewarding as you help them enhance the quality of their life and develop more purpose.  It’s also a booming population (and will continue to be) with many seniors much needing personal training services, and also being able to afford them which makes it a win-win situation for the personal trainer.

Testimonial

079April 20, 2013

Louis became my trainer approximately 6 months ago. I had met Louis some time before that day, but the real connection between Louis and I started when training began. Physically I was 44 pounds overweight, mentally I was sluggish and my family life was not where I wanted it be.

I have tried many trainers, but Louis is the only one who successfully helped me connect my physical and spiritual world. I really didn’t know what I was missing. My stress has been reduced significantly, my strength and endurance has increased dramatically and most importantly, I have rediscovered how beautiful my family is.

This is a very remarkable story and a very true story at that. In short, I owe my life and health to this man. Only God in heaven knows how, Louis not only saved my life but rescued my soul. Not only do I thank Louis but my family thanks you as well. Thank you, sir from the bottom of my heart.
