Louka bases his training on the belief that strength fixes almost everything. He trains and teaches with a minimalist, yet highly effective, approach. He is considered an expert in the practice of “hardstyle” kettlebell, flexibility, and bodyweight strength training within the fitness community.
Louka’s attitude can be compared to that of an old-time strongman and a martial artist. He challenges his students to “practice” rather than “workout”. He is about the underlying principles, not just the tools. “An exercise or movement has greater value if it is done with quality and purpose. That is how I build real, long lasting strength.”
He believes strength and flexibility training should be a lifestyle and advocates being able to train anytime and anywhere. “A kettlebell can replace an entire gym…” he says, “…but if you don’t have one available, you can still get very strong using just your own body.” That’s- one mind, any weapon -mentality.
Louka currently teaches Kettlebell and Bodyweight training courses, as well as Flexible Steel certifications across Canada. He is also the proud owner of Hardstyle Kettlebell Mtl, his own “school of strength” in the Montreal area, where he teaches. When he is not swinging a kettlebell or putting heavy weights overhead, he pursues his other passion of art in the form of painting and drawing.
