About Michael

I have been a competitive athlete my entire life. I have also been injured numerous times. In the process I have learned a great deal about recovery and prevention of injury not just through experience, but through continued education and application. Many of my clients come from Physical Therapy referrals when insurance runs out and you need to continue to work with a knowledgeable professional.

For the last 10 years, I have specialize in Functional Training. I enjoy using the Core First CFX Trainer, TRX Suspension and Rip Trainers, kettle bells, sand bags, battle ropes and more! I believe in strengthening the core FIRST, not just the abs . I am an ambassador for Core First/CFX as well as Hypervolt percussive therapy. I am also an experienced Kinesiology tape applicator.

I taught Kickboxing for the last two years at Knockout Fitness, in Lake Mary, who was voted the Orlando Sentinel's Best Bets Fitness Facility for 2019. I was a head trainer where I not only led classes, trained my instructors, and I developed programming for all.

As a Global Cardio Tennis Instructor, I enjoy teaching professionals and ammatuers the joy of Cardio Tennis. Using low compression balls allows players to develop their stokes while burning copious amounts of calories.

My Bachelor's Degree is in Advertising, with minors in Marketing and Business. All of my electives where in the College of Health and Human Performance. I put my first wife through her Master's Study in Occupational Therapy, so I am well versed in Anatomy and Kinesiology as well.
