Moises LopezVerified 7 Reviews
Hello, I'm Moises and I have been training clients for over 8 years now. I have a degree in Kinesiology, am certified through NASM as a personal training, a certified nutrition coach, and am a certified boxing instructor. I specialize in strength and conditioning training, with the barbell being the main piece of equipment used. I enjoy teaching people how to squat, bench press, press, and deadlift. I know the importance of strength for humans, it is what makes us go! I enjoy training people of all ages and fitness experience. Strength is important for all of our daily activities and training with barbells is not only great for improving body composition but great for general health and well being.
My favorite client story
I have a Masters client (over 55) that could not even squat out of a chair. She now squats over 95lbs with a barbell on her back. She is now addicted to strength training and seeing those numbers go up on the bar. Stories like these is why I love training people.
My favorite exercise
My favorite exercise is the barbell deadlift because it makes you stronger not only physically but mentally as well.
My training philosophy
Keep track of all your workouts with pen and paper and use progressive overload. Every pound counts towards your goals.
My training experience
I have over 8 years of personal and small group training and have trained clients as young as 13 and elder clients in their 70s.

Moises is exactly the trainer I was looking for. Not only does he have tons of knowledge on training and nutrition, but he also has the patience to teach you proper form. He can really help you get into shape.
Moises is great trainer! He is someone and that makes workouts fun and comfortable but also focused on doing exercise right. I enjoyed that he switched up workouts and help build my strength!
Moises' has taught me so much in correcting my form and technique. He is patient and is definitely not one of those cookie-cutter generic trainers that are found in corporate gyms or bootcamps that show you blanketed workouts. He caters each one of my sessions according to my personal abilities which ensures that I am constantly progressing. His facility is covid19 safe and if needed he travels to meet me for our sessions! Not only has my strength grown, but so has my confidence! I wish I would have found Moises sooner!
Moises has empowered me to be the strongest I have been in my entire life. I have been weight lifting for over 10 years and he was able to correct all the details, such as grip, arching of the upper back, head position, bar travel, hip movement, and more. He allows you to rapidly yet safely gain strength and overall fitness through proper technique and support exercises. He is able to easily break down form and mechanics of complex compound lifts in ways lay people can understand. As a multiple sport athlete, he would tailor my sessions to ensure I wasn't over-trained and to prevent injury. On days where I had muscle tweaks, he would help me work around them. I have never recovered quicker from minor injuries until I worked out with Moises. During quarantine, he graciously lent me equipment and we adapted to remote at-home work outs. On the diet front, he was able to provide sound general rules of thumb regarding calories and macros so you could make long-lasting changes yet not be overwhelmed by fads and too much detail. Lastly, Moises is overall just a good person and a great listener for when life gets you down. Our sessions were "iron therapy." I encourage you to try a session with him if you are serious about getting in shape.
Moises is an awesome trainer. I’ve leaned on trainers for over 20 years and done everything from CrossFit, Boxing, HIT, Cycle, and all sorts of Bootcamps. I’ve trained with several other trainers, which were all great, but Moises model was new to me. No crawling around or all that other stuff. Just compound lifts 3-4x per week. I’m 47 years old and the strongest I’ve ever been. People now comment about my muscles. Shoulder, wrist, ankle, knee and NECK pains are all gone. Moe! Raise your prices! ;)
Ive been trying to tweak my routine so I decided to come to this site. I came across Moises's profile and loved how diverse his group preferences are. I reached out and he got back to me very quickly, which was awesome because thats great customer service. I decided to give him a shot a few times and each time I walked away very happy, knowledgeable and hopeful about my fitness. Hes detail oriented and knows how to push your fitness boundaries to help you make the perfect amount of progress without overstressing you. Hes also not stressful about nutrition and keeps it simple. If you stick to your training plan and nutrition with Moises youll only succeed. Ive now decided to go back several times a week and its the best investment ive made. I highly recommend him. Its more than just a dollar amount with him. Its dedication and attentiveness to your needs. Your not just "another client".
I’ve been going to Moises for over a year now and he really is the best. I had basically no experience doing heavy lifting before I started and now I’m addicted. He’s very knowledgeable about techniques and makes sure to prioritize good form, which is great because obviously you could hurt yourself if you’re not doing it right. He’s also great about not pushing through injury; if I tweak something, he makes sure I’m okay and suggests alternatives to avoid hurting myself more. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a great workout and wants to build muscle but doesn’t know where to start.
