Moises LopezVerified 12 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.
We’ve been working with Moises for almost a year now and it has made such a difference in our lives. Seeing results and muscle gain was near instant. We’ve felt stronger and healthier with his workouts and we feel like we are in good hands as Moises is extremely educated and experienced in personal training and weight lifting. He has a great approach to the way he trains and it is effective- we are going through our body composition changes now and it’s exciting to see the results of our work. His gym setting is personal even in the group classes as Moises makes sure he gives every individual their own feedback throughout the session. We both wholeheartedly recommend using Moises as a personal trainer!
Training with Moises for 1.5+ years has been a game-changer! I had tried 4 other instructors/classes before finding Moises that were not even close to what he offers. Form is everything in training, and Moises is the master of perfecting it. He's incredibly particular about form, scrutinizing every detail to ensure you nail each exercise. What sets him apart by a mile is his laser-focused attention. Every single rep in your working sets gets his undivided focus! He fine-tunes even the smallest form tweaks, ensuring it stays spot-on throughout your workout. I feel ultra-safe, knowing I'm pushing my limits with top-notch form and expert guidance. Moises doesn't stop at form - he tracks your progress meticulously. He adjusts weights, reps, and exercises, making you constantly stronger. Thanks to him, I've lifted weights I never thought possible! For a knowledgeable, caring, detail-oriented instructor who delivers real results, Moises is your guy. Join his sessions and get ready to crush your fitness goals!
ML Strength and Conditioning has been awesome to me. Moises is exceptional, the overall vibe is great and I have had nothing but great experiences every time I work out here.
Moises knows his stuff! Can put you in a training path to build strength AND muscle. Always insightful when asking him questions. Thank you for all the input!
I had certain goals in mind and Trainer Moises set me up with a great program that was tailored to my schedule and most importantly my abilities. Never felt judged, only inspired to keep pushing myself. The inspiration and comradery is what keeps me coming back. Genuine great trainer who loves and cares about his work and clients.
