About Luc Moore
Luc has been involved in the health field since he was 16 years old. He started his first business at the age of 18 selling exercise equipment and developing training programs while working at the Almonte Fitness Centre. His combination of excitement and curiosity about how the body works alongside his athletic training brought him to study at the University of Ottawa where he obtained a B.SC. (Hon) in Human Kinetics.
In 2008, he cycled across Canada in 57 days, raising funds for a children’s Foundation. Upon returning, he started his second business of providing Kinesiology services to his local area. Nine months later, he was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident. He sustained numerous life-threatening injuries, including an unstable open-book pelvic fracture which required intensive surgeries to repair. With the help of family and friends, he closed his business and started rehabilitation as his new full-time job. Nearly one year later to the day, he was involved in a car accident that totalled his VW Golf and rehabilitation continued. The next eight years were spent rehabbing from these two accidents.
As a result, he co-created www.healthlocator.ca to address these concerns. Luc presently lives in Ontario’s Ottawa Valley and spends his spare time with his family and friends, windsurfing, cycling and travelling.
