Our Coaches



Ketogains prides itself in helping educate and empower people. One of the most important aspects in the way we do that is the contribution of very experienced people who are passionate about helping others achieve optimal results.

A coach or personal trainer with a “Ketogains Certification” is a person who has proven to have the experience,  personal knowledge in ketogenic lifestyle and commitment and passion to help others. They have passed our Fitness and Ketogenic Nutritional test and we are confident to recommend them as official Ketogains Coaches.

All “Ketogains Certified Coaches” have also either a Nutrition / Strength Training degree, or are certified by a recognized institution such as  the ISSA, Precission Nutrition, or Bayesian Bodybuilding.

We are confident they can help you in a professional manner in subjects like: Ketogenic nutrition and lifestyle, meal plans, fitness and strength training programs, etc.

WARNING: Please BE WARY of any other people soliciting their Personal Training / Coaching services and claiming to be a Low Carb / Ketogenic expert IN ANY GROUP OR COMMUNITY.

We only endorse people with a proven record and knowledge and / or accompanyng certifications.

Luis Villasenor

Luis Villasenor (aka DarthLuiggi) is the founder of KETOGAINS.

Luis has always been passionate about fitness due to a personal interest in improving his own physique. Always curious in learning the “whys and how’s” of how it all works, he has been studying and researching nutrition and strength training since he was 17.

Upon discovering ketogenic diets in 2001, Luis has been on a low carb regime ever since, which he has used to favorably recomposition his body and improve his health,

Due to this, Luis decided to develop KETOGAINS as  to share his experiences and knowledge and help people attain their health and fitness goals.

Tyler Cartwright

Tyler is no stranger to a ketogenic diet. Beginning at 505 lbs. and nearly dead from the shear weight of being morbidly obese, he began searching out a means to change, and has been ketogenic since. He has lost 280 lbs. since beginning his journey, and between he and his wife, Jamiee, this couple has presently lost 417 lbs. over 9 years. Tyler has been featured in the Fit2Fat2Fit podcast, where he shares his insights on “The Mental and Emotional Side of Losing 230 Pounds with Determination and Ketosis”.

Tyler’s background in sports and powerlifting has been advantageous in his pursuit of physical health and wellness, but it was the mental aspects which most surprised him. Tyler’s experience as a self-professed “science nerd” has lead him to become a sought after resource both for a number of popular low-carbohydrate blogs and podcasts, but also as an author of both the ketogains.com website and as an op-ed author for an upcoming ketogenic webpage which will bring together a number of noted experts in ketogenic dieting.

Tyler’s principal areas of interest are:

  1. The biochemistry and bioenergetic facets of human performance.
  2. The psychology of change and embracing the journey of long-term non-surgical fat loss
  3. The context-based approach to a well-formulated ketogenic diet.

Tyler’s primary focus these days is in both group-based and individual coaching, introducing the gym to brand new lifters, and encouraging and motivating people to step out of what has obviously NOT worked for them, and to aid them in developing goals, make changes that last, and changing lives in the process.

Along with Luis, he is a founding member of Ketogains, LLC.
