I just wanted to thank you for all you do for him. He is a “Coach Lou” fan and thinks very highly of you. I just wanted you to know that we appreciate you.
Have a very Merry Christmas and all the best to you and yours in 2010.
"Our son, Alex has always been athletic. He has played baseball from the age of 4 years old. Now at 12 years old and training with Ettore Functional Athletic Strength Training for nine months, we noticed a dynamic change in Alex's appearance, agility, strength, and self confidence.
On many occasions we have had family and friends comment on his transformation. We feel that Lou Ettore's training techniques have been a tremendous impact on our son's life.
Alex not only enjoys and has fun at training; he has learned proper nutrition, health consciousness and as an added benefit better grades in school.
Thanks Lou. We would recommend you to anyone."

"Wow", what a positive change Coach Lou has done for our son Bryan. Bryan has lost 10 lbs and built up his strength. Coach Lou has taught Bryan how to reach goals that have been set for him. We have noticed an overall excitement in his confidence level and determination to go out and prove himself to his coaches. Thanks Lou, we will be back.

One son has lost 9 pounds and the other gained serious muscle definition with Coach Lou’s training program. I highly recommend training with this professional trainer.”
Alex really likes your sessions and is very positive. He won't even let me pack junk food in his lunch box any more, who is this kid? Thanks a million.
“My sons look forward to going to the workouts and have even started eating healthier foods. Lou Ettore’s workout will improve your child’s health and fitness.”
“Coach Lou is awesome. He has taught my boys the importance of eating healthy and exercising regularly. His conditioning program is intense and the results speak for themselves.”
Mr. & Mrs. Morgan
“With all of the components my son has rapidly progressed in every aspect of his game. Thank You Lou for your expertise and high standards in training!”
I did the football/softball throw station at field day yesterday. Kids with the longest softball throws for their grades were your former players: Preston, Kris, David, Levi and Mason. Thought you might want to know.
Just wanted to let you know that 3 days after Alex did not make the baseball team last fall, he made the football team (go figure!).
He worked out all summer with his school team and just finished the JV season at Northwest Christian school undefeated. He has had lots of playing time and his coach plans to play him on JV and varsity next fall. Alex loves it! He has grown in maturity as well as size...he is 5-10" tall, 155 pounds. You would not recognize him. He still speaks highly of you & your program, it was really a spring board for his conditioning & confidence. "Coach Lou taught me this, Coach Lou taught me that, Lou, Lou, Lou!!!"
Keep up the good work....your influence has long lasting results! Thank you! :)
Go Northwest Christian Crusaders!
"To anyone considering training their kids with Coach Lou Ettore I have two words, DO IT !! Our son Nick has worked with Lou for 2 years. Wow, what a difference. He WAS an out of shape couch potato. NOW he is reaching his goals and is a starting, every down player in high school football to prove it. Lou teaches it all from the actual working out to the nutrition etc. and is very good at getting the most out of kids. I would highly recommend Lou Ettore to anyone. Thanks Lou, for what you’ve done with Nick."
"Working out is like takin' a deuce...when it hurts, you sure feel great after." Andrew Snider (2011 GOeFAST Legendary B.A.)
Andrew has kicked it up a notch since he started as a young sprout at 13 with GOeFAST Summer Program. He has trained on Saturdays until he decided to train Summer of 2009 like a beast.
Now 17 and training with Coach Lou's NO BULL SHIT attitude he is one Bad Ass Athlete. He has told us how he likes that he can trust his upper body strength in any situation.
Thanks to Coach Lou's coaching Andrew has taken control of making his body into a fine tuned machine and does what it takes both on and off the field to be the best person he can be. He once was the under dog athlete in school sports, not making the middle school baseball teams. Now, with proper training, he was on varsity last year. Andrew is training to try out for the 2010 season and breaking wooden bats like matches!
Coach Lou's training programs are top notch and Andrew is living proof!
GOeFAST Training Methods KICK ARS!!

"Hey dad...my bat feels lighter this season!" John
Wow what a difference a few months with Coach Lou can make!! John has been training with Coach Lou on Saturday for 2 years and started training 3 times a week with GOeFAST this past Summer. John is now a utility player and hitting machine for his team! Huge difference from last ball season.
John weighs 98 pounds and can carry his 120 pound sister!
He is a lean machine! His confidence has soared since being with Coach Lou.
He comes home from training in the GOeFAST Dungeon charged and ready to take on the world. John's training style and determination have made him strong beyond what the numbers say.
With Coach Lou's guidance John is developing into a GOeFAST Legendary Bad Ass Athlete!!
Thank you GOeFAST and Coach Lou!
Track season 2010 is going well. John has earned a spot on Varsity for the 800 meter!
UPDATE: 4/22/2010 Little League Game hit 2 triples...one was a base clearer! Sweetness!

My son Ryan has participated in the training programs offered by GOeFAST (Coach Lou Ettore) for each of the past three summers. During this year’s camp, I have seen tremendous improvements in his athleticism, durability and work ethic. Prior to beginning his first summer camp with GOeFAST (Coach Lou Ettore) three years ago, Ryan was 5ft tall but weighed 150lbs. Our doctors were concerned about his BMI, blood pressure and triglycerides. During his first summer camp Ryan lost 20lbs and was able to participate in tackle football that fall.
Ryan had very different goals while attending the camp this past summer. At the start of the sessions, Ryan weighed 176 lbs and hoped to gain additional bulk and strength in order to play ACYFL tackle football this fall. Consulting with Coach Lou we determined that a goal weight of 185lbs was possible. Through his hard work, proper nutrition and dedication to the GOeFAST program, Ryan surpassed this goal and weighed in at a well conditioned 188 lbs. Due to the physical conditioning he achieved during Coach Lou Ettore’s program, he has been one of the only players NOT TO MISS ANY practice drills because of pulls, sprains or simple fatigue. Most importantly, Ryan developed the work habits necessary to excel on his new team.
"My son Michael has been involved with GOeFAST and Coach Lou for 4 years. During that time Lou has not only transformed Mike's body but he has also transformed his mind. Mike has made the connection between healthy eating and working out, something that is hard to do for a teenager. Mike is involved in high school athletics and because of Lou's training and conditioning he is at the top of his game. Without Lou and GOeFAST I doubt Mike would have even made the team. I know that Mike is ultimately responsible for his success but it is nice to know that he has someone like Lou in his corner. I can't thank Lou enough for all that he has done for my son."
Here is Mike today August 2008. Ripped up and throwing gas off the mound.
After 7 months of training with Coach Lou, I have lost 56 pounds and 26 inches! I went from a size 2XL maternity (with a 4 month old baby) to a size 14 - and I'm still shrinking! It is such an incredible feeling to be able to do exercises that I wasn't able to do seven months ago - including things I thought were impossible. Before starting with Coach Lou, I had tried countless "fad" diets, and nothing worked. Coach's plan WORKS!
My latest accomplishments:
1) I weigh LESS than my driver's license says I do!
2) My butt doesn't get stuck in those darn plastic chairs anymore
3) I'm seeing numbers on the scale that I haven't seen since
the late 90's
4) My friends and family shower me with compliments every time I see them.
It is SO rewarding to hear how great I look!
I look at the scale as not a friend and I have it tucked away in the closet and only bring it out generally once a month – around the 5th of the month. This is date I started my journey in January 2010. I was doing 3 times a week training until I had surgery on my knee. Took a short hiatus and am back at it now.
For me I had a hard time seeing the weight coming off other then hearing encouraging words from Coach Lou (these words are more powerful then I realized) – I still did not believe it. It was not until just before my surgery and we took a family picture and I looked at that and notice that I had some missing weight. The other way I noticed some difference was after the surgery I had strength in the upper body. This enabled me to be able to lift myself with my arms from the floor, the tub and the strength just to work those crutches. I also had control of my leg when I saw the surgeon a week after the surgery and he asked me to lift my leg straight up to see the control I had with the leg – did it with no troubles. I guess all those leg lifts paid off – the funny thing is during my therapy I hear the voice of Coach Lou during my leg lifts and hear his strange way of counting and also the short choppy lifts words – yikes voices in my head.
Good luck with the journey – is an interesting road to travel down, never know the twist and turns that show up!
Jodi M.'s Motivating words given to ladies in the OTF
I'm a 32 year old Native American female who recently returned "home" after living on the East Coast. I've always struggled with my weight as long as I can remember, since two years in highschool when I was heavy into dance and the "unhealthy" diet plans usually associated with the dance world. I've recently gone through many changes - career, relationships, attitude - and want to include changes in my lifestyle and eating habits. I'm looking forward to being a bride and a mom someday, but I want to look and feel my best when it happens. Since I began my journey in April 2006 I've lost almost 50 lbs, and I'm still going. I'm currently at 177 lbs and hope to get down to 120 lbs. Coach Lou has given me the basic building blocks that I need to make my healthy living dreams a reality.

"I am putting forth the effort so that I can be the best that I can be. Feel strong and tight. I like the feeling of NOT feeling the jiggle. You get out what you put in and I see results and so does my family. Hard work gets HARD results!!"
I know my Doctor for my back is good but he really sucks at recommending exercises to help my back. He gave me a pitiful exercise program for my back to strengthen it. Geez , Lou has already recommended these and has me working above the Doctor's recommended level. Like you said on Facebook - I want to kick this back pain and Doctor to the curb. This Doctor should partner with Lou to help all his patients (but maybe he would not like that as his revenues would go down as people didn't need him anymore).
In an eye opening moment,
"Last week's success.. wearing jeans I haven't worn since last February to Thanksgiving dinner! Even getting through Thanksgiving without doing the normal gorging that the old me would have felt like a success.
This week's success.. people at work noticed the change in me. My pants are noticeably gapping, sagging, and I have INCHES of extra waistline.
Today's success.. Listening to Coach Lou! I feel refocused and ready to kick butt. fast walking mixed with 90 walking lunges and arm work.. WHoop! Hurts so good!
Today I hit a great milestone! I can pull my pants off without unbuttoning them! Two days from now I will have been doing the program for a month. I have lost 12 lbs. I feel my tummy tighten, muscles appearing in my legs, and I have more energy than a hummingbird on crack! The workouts are easier to do (which of course means I need to turn it up a notch) and I feel like a brand new me is emerging!"
"After a little over 2 months of following the program I have lost 33 lbs. (Thank you Lou for helping me to truly change what I have wanted to change for a long time!!) It definitely has been a huge up hill battle and changing my past habits has been challenging every single day. You don't even realize how much you have ignored your own health and well being until you start to work on it. I feel so much better and I am fitting into clothes I haven't fit into in years!! I am very proud of myself and I know that this is just the beginning, each and everyday is about making the right choices, which isn't always easy but I am learning it is definitely worth it."
Just wanted to let you know that yesterday was so awesome, Honestly I am so STOKED to join the LADIES OF THE DUNGEON, I can not begin to tell you the difference I am already starting to feel.Just in my energy alone. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
Guess what, I went to the store and tried on a pair of shorts. OMG

FYI ... Since Oct. 3...My weigh-in today shows that I am down 15 lbs! Yay... Thanks Carrie! You are the inspiration and class that I needed.
Robyn ~ GOeFAST Ladies of the Dungeon Park with Coach Carrie
Carrie I am feeling so good!!!! I just wanted to let you know, thanks for being an excellent example of someone that has made some life changes and stuck to it. It has really spurred me on to make those changes for myself.
My first half marathon! Thanks Carrie for all your support and training especially during my injury!
Ginny ~ GOeFAST Ladies of the Dungeon Park with Coach Carrie
What Carrie has done for me – she has inspired me to be the best I can be. To know that she has been there done IT is awesome to know. To see the transformation of her over the years is amazing. She knows that there is no quick fix, no magic pill just good old fashion hard work.
Carrie is a great sounding block of anything I might have questions on. She always has the can do attitude, IT can be done if nothing else it could be modified to be done. Is always a major support in my journey of life. When we hike she is there on the trail with me and making sure all is going well and give the little push when needed. She helps me push me to the extra limits and knows that I am capable of IT. Not only is Carrie a Lifestyle Fitness Coach she is a friend and a great support group. She always has my best interest in my lifestyle and helps encourage and support me in making better choices.

Garrett Hardy ~ GOeFAST OTF 8 Weeks to Success
"My mother always encourages me to give 110% on everything, to go above and beyond being average and strive for perfection. However, the wellbeing of our family and eating habits were nowhere close to being healthy, until my mom decided things needed to change.
In 2003 my mom was 5'6" and 213 pounds, in other words obese. On family vacations she struggled to keep up and would hide in the back of pictures. Eating out at least 5 times a week also showed; my mom's wedding ring had to be cut off her finger then resized so it wouldn't cut off circulation.
In September of 2006, my mom decided change was in order and joined a lady fitness program (GOeFAST Fitness Challenge), to strive to become a better person just like she had always taught me. She continued to push herself with the support of my dad, brothers, and myself. Our eating habits also improved as she continued to exercise; she had fun finding new healthy recipes for us to try.
My mom, now at 155 pounds, continues to work out at least three times a week. She has become physically active, and after running a 5k as a family she asked me to participate with her in the lron Girl 5k, which I never expected from my mom of all people. She is a completely different person and because of her wanting to become healthy again my whole family has transformed from overweight, unhealthy eaters to an athletic, fit, and happy family."
Thanks Coach Lou!! Here is a slide show I put together for a contest that shows what words can not.
The only difference between us and you is we put in the time. Coach Lou
