Ron Morel, Owner and Coach
Ron became interested in fitness in high school while working out over the summer at a local gym. Since then, his love for fitness grew into a daily routine and a big part of his lifestyle.
After studying business at LSU, Ron decided to become a certified personal trainer through ACE and opened the first Anytime fitness in Louisiana so he could share his passion for exercise with others. Ron went on to open several other successful Anytime and Snap fitness locations.
In 2011 Ron sold his shares in the business, moved to New Orleans and opened Trainer To Go with his business partner, Jessie. Later came Sweat Factory, their second venture together where Ron gets to tap into his inner comedian by making classes fun and upbeat!
He also enjoys trips to the beach, stand up paddle boarding, spending time with family, and an endless stream of news and sports on TV.
