Ronnie Lopez

Ronnie was born in Dallas, Texas but calls California home. Ronnie graduated (mathematics) and played collegiate baseball at Chapman University, where he participated in three Division III College World Series. Being part of a winning culture in college, Ronnie approaches everything post-baseball with a winner's mindset, putting high priority on "attention to detail" and "rigorous practice." He was introduced to functional movement and asked to deeply think about methods of training by Logan Gelbrich. He believes learning is never complete and the key to success as an athlete and coach is adopting a growth mindset. Ronnie is now co-owner and coach at DEUCE Athletics in Hermosa Beach and leads "Weightlifting Fundamentals," a specialty weightlifting program and coach for Project Speed: Speed and Agility Training.
