Mr. Loperena was originally inspired to become a personal trainer after losing a tremendous amount of weight during young adulthood. At the age of 18, he weighed 350 pounds and was subsequently admitted to the hospital due to the myriad of life-threatening health issues that had been triggered by his obesity. With the help of a sports nutritionist and personal trainer, Mr. Loperena returned to a healthy weight and learned which types of health practices were most effective.

From 2001 to 2014, Mr. Loperena found incredible success as the owner of Loperena Fitness. Throughout this period, he also obtained a Bachelor of Science in psychology and human development from the University of Houston as well as a personal fitness trainer diploma from the National Personal Training Institute of Houston. Mr. Loperena’s organization has since evolved into Pledge to Fitness, which has earned recognition as the premier fitness and health boutique in Texas.

As an esteemed personal trainer, stretch therapist and nutritionist, Mr. Loperena takes great pleasure in showing his clients that small, sustainable changes to their daily routine can make a huge impact on their health. His dedicated team has helped countless individuals reach their fitness goals and lead healthy lifestyles. Mr. Loperena is also extremely proud to have maintained a thriving business during the COVID-19 pandemic through virtual training sessions.
