Gabriel Lopez is the Director of Performance for Perform6 Fitness. He spent 4 years traveling the PGA Tour working full time with PGA Tour Professional, Vijay Singh, as his private golf fitness coach and has been teaching strength and conditioning for the past 20 years.
Gabriel has a Bachelor’s 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 Certified Level 3 Junior Coach Instructor, USAW Sport Performance Coach, MAT JS, FMS, and is an ongoing member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
In addition to working with Singh, Coach Lopez has held an exclusive private clientele list consisting of athletes from the PGA Tour, NFL, NCAA, IFBB, NPC, amateur and junior athletes at every level.
Gabriel worked 5 years with the 2008 Mr. Olympia and 4x 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 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 to a coaching golfers has come very natural. Gabriel has had formal teachings in Anatomy, Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Functional Movement Testing, Golf Fitness, Golf Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, Weight Management and Sports Nutrition.
Today, his primary focus is educating his athletes on the performance and mental strategies necessary to achieve their own greatness on and off the course or playing field.
