Michael Medvig1 Review
In Home, Remote and Online Personal Training. Fitness begins after 40! Why it is so frustrating to get back in shape after 40? It’s a big problem. We have spent too much time sitting and being inactive. We get weird little injuries. Our bodies change. Especially if you have kids. We lose strength and endurance. The good news is that I have been getting people back in shape for over 15 years. It’s not that we have to train differently…we need to train smarter. What do you get? Free initial consultation Customized workouts 16 Nutrition Plans to Choose from based on your goals Comprehensive nutrition guide Learn how to fix injuries on the fly. Train directly with me. Choose convenient times to train Learn proper technique. Sport specific training available Couples and small group options How Long have you been training clients? Over 15 years. I have been around a long time because the people I train become family not clients. I really enjoy seeing my people transform and take control of their health. Aren't you a little old to be a personal trainer? That hurts! Actually it is a legitimate question. I started coaching people because I was passionate about staying in shape and I saw that there was a lot of misinformation about fitness. I am now in my 50’s and in better shape than ever. I am not bragging but what I have learned is extremely valuable and I like sharing it with my clients. What equipment do I need? I have a lot of equipment that I can bring and we will use whatever you have. I realize you probably don’t have unlimited space and money so I will keep recommendations that will fit your space and budget. What is Functional Fitness? Functional fitness has a lot of definitions. For our purposes I am focusing on making you stronger, more flexible and better conditioned. Fat loss and an increased metabolism are nice side effects of this form of training. How does does personal training cost? That is a relative question. I see this as an investment in your health and expect you to get the most out of this. Click here to go to my pricing page. What if I have injuries I need to work around? Let’s see if we can fix them. I am not a Doctor but most injuries that involve neck, back, elbow, lower back, knee and ankles can be minimized or eliminated through targeted exercises. I am a certified corrective exercise coach and have helped many clients become pain free. Can I be to old to start training? No way. I have coached people in their seventies and eighties with great success. If you are older and have medical conditions it is recommended your Doctor clears you to workout. What if I am under 40 and interested in working with you? 40 is an arbitrary number I use because I want to train people who getting older and are serious about fixing themselves. I don’t train kids, teams, boot camps or do diet programs. There are plenty of other trainers out there that can handle that. What if I just want to try a couple sessions, am I under a contract? No contracts and no extra fees. Coaching is all about personalities meshing and getting along. Try a few sessions and see what you think. What forms of payment do you take? Cash,Venmo, PayPal and Zelle How do I find out your availability? The best way is to schedule a free phone consult and we can go over that and I can answer other questions you have. As a general rule I have time from 5:30 a.m to 6 pm monday thru Friday but I can make exceptions. Let’s talk about it.
My favorite client story
I received a text from a client the other day, " I am so happy. I just walked up a flight of stairs and I am not even out of breath. Thank you!" This client has also dropped three dress sizes. More importantly, she had a very destructive idea of food. She grew up with the idea that losing weight meant starving yourself. When I met her, she was at her wit's end. She wasn't losing weight, hungry all the time and felt terrible about herself. Now she is seeing results and her life has turned around.
My favorite exercise
I don't know if I have a favorite exercise. I just like having a toolbox full of them so I can pull the right one out for any occasion.
My favorite quote
" I do diddly squats". Yeah I know, but it is funny.
My training philosophy
You train your mind to train your body. Everything we do has an effect on our lives. Learn how to overcome fear and procrastination with me and you will see the effect in other areas of your life.

Michael has provided workout sessions for my husband and I off and on for 13 years. Our sessions are an hour, and we focus on different areas every week. Michael will tailor the workout based on our requests to focus on a particular area. Under Michael’s guidance, we have achieved improved flexibility, mobility and stamina. We have been able to enjoy these physical improvements by increasing our physical activities in our travels. We like to hike, to snorkel, ride bikes, and find we are more capable on vacations that require physical activities. Thanks Michael!
