Gabriel Lopez is a fitness specialist who has been teaching strength and conditioning for almost 20 years. Gabriel has spent the last 4 years on the PGA Tour working full time with PGA professional, Vijay Singh. Vijay has won 3 Majors, 34 PGA Tour wins and has been elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Gabriel has a bachelor degree in Exercise Physiology from Ball State University and is also a graduate of the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy. Gabriel is a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Level 3 Golf Fitness Instructor and a TPI Certified Junior Coach Level 3 Instructor. Gabriel is also certified as a USAW Sport Performance Coach and is an ongoing member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Prior to working with Singh, Gabriel held an exclusive private clientele list. Some of Gabriel's past clients consisted of NFL Football Players from the Jacksonville Jaguars, NPC fitness and figure competitors, pro and amateur bodybuilders, models, golfers, CEO's, collegiate and amateur athletes of every level.
Gabriel worked 5 years with the 2008 Mr. Olympia and 3x Arnold Classic Champion, IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson. Throughout that time, Gabriel traded knowledge with Dexter covering all aspects of performance training, nutrition, supplementation and recovery. Gabriel used his extensive knowledge training Vijay on the PGA Tour.
Gabriel was born in San Diego, California, but spent most of his adolescence living in Indiana excelling in football and baseball. Gabriel started his bodybuilding career in 1998, winning the Mr. Ball State University collegiate overall title and finished his last competitive competition winning the NPC Dexter Jackson Classic Light-Heavyweight Division in 2007.
Gabriel’s transition from being an athlete and bodybuilder to a PGA Tour Golf Fitness Instructor has come very natural. Gabriel has had formal teachings in Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Exercise Physiology, Golf Performance, Anatomy, Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, Functional Movement Testing, Weight Management and Sports Nutrition.
Gabriel continues to advance his education on training strategies for increasing golf power. When Gabriel is not studying strength and conditioning, he enjoys spending time at the beach, working out, reading, writing, cooking or just relaxing poolside at his Florida home. Gabriel currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida.
