Meet the New Coach: Lou Seal


Lou Seal found his passion in football and track in his early teens. He graduated from Ball State University with a degree in sports administration and marketing, then turned his passion for sports into a career. Today, Lou is the event director for RAM Racing, producing running events across the country for more than a quarter million runners a year. 

Like many people, Lou stuck with the big box gym routine until he found CrossFit. At the same time, he also won a lottery spot in the Chicago marathon. He managed to balance a running program with CrossFit, sometimes dropping in on running days just to stretch or watch the class. After a year, he received his Level 1 certification.

“Being a coach is more than competition, lifting heavy, or going hard,” Lou says. “I find joy in entertaining a class, motivating members to do things they thought they couldn’t, and being part of a community that is striving to better themselves.” His goals at RPE are to continue to learn and grow as a coach and to build relationships with a new membership base to help them accomplish their goals. 
Lou also holds his CPR/AED American Red Cross certification.
