Instructor bio
Lou Figueroa
GOTA Guest Instructor

Growing up in Southern California before moving to Colorado with his family in 1991, Lou Figueroa was an avid snowboarder and mountain biker who enjoyed the great outdoors.

At the age of twenty-seven years old, while out with a group of friends in the downtown district of Denver, Lou encountered a beverage laced with an unknown substance, experiencing a rapid onset of intoxication. In a daze, lost and disoriented, he walked nearly two miles before stumbling into the Union Station rail yard. In the early hours of the morning, a train was approaching when they saw Lou’s body at the last minute. The conductor and the engineer on board believe Lou had been struck fifteen minutes prior to their arrival. The result would be the loss of both legs.

After surviving a week-long coma gripping to life, Lou awoke in the hospital on life support and feeding tubes to the realization his life would never be the same. Since his amputations, Lou has traveled across the globe sharing messages of hope and inspiration to hundreds of audiences including medical associations, colleges, and universities.
His passion is taking business professionals through the journey of change and transformation. Lou speaks on topics relating to limb loss, pain management, substance abuse, and wellness following traumatic injury.

Today, Lou lives in Santa Barbara, California where he advocates for drink safety and alcohol awareness.
