TGMC welcomes new addition to Healthy Lifestyles Center

Terrebonne General Medical Center has a new certified strength and conditioning specialist.

The hospital announced this week that Patrick Labat has been hired to join the Healthy Lifestyles Center staff – an addition which brings almost 10 years of experience to the hospital in the field.

Labat is a local. He will create customized individual and group training plans for clients in TGMC’s Sports Performance Training Center.

“Patrick is a welcomed addition to TGMC,” said Phyllis Peoples, the President and CEO of TGMC. “As a leader of health and wellness in our community, Patrick and the Sports Performance Training Center will serve as a resource for those interested in fitness. His diverse background gives him the skills to help our community live healthier and more productive lives.”

Labat received both his bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette – both in exercise science.

Labat returned to his high school alma mater last year and was the strength and conditioning coach at South Terrebonne High School.

According to the hospital, Labat specializes in creating fitness plans for peak athletic performance, as well as building or maintaining strength, weight loss and mobility.

The Sports Performance Training Center offers both athletic and health performance training programs customized to meet an individual’s fitness goals.

Established in 2015, it has helped train hundreds of community members.
