My favorite client story

“I’ve been working with Coach Mike for 5 months now and it is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my adult life. From day one, he has been such a pro. Always punctual, a great communicator and easy to work with. Even on days we don’t see each other, he pushes me to reach my full potential. Results from working with him have been insane. I’ve never felt better, both physically and mentally. I feel stronger and my attitude towards life in general has greatly improved. My only regret is not working with him sooner and having him kick my ass 10 year ago ????.“- Robbie T.

“Mike is absolutely the best. I love his professionalism and focus on holistic health. I was a trainer years ago so I really appreciate that he really knows his stuff. I suffer from tendinitis and I sit at a computer all day so I was really worried about being in pain. Not only have I become more flexible, I have less pain in my joints And more energy. More importantly, Mike focuses on my mindful eating habits which really cure the core of why I was over eating. I’m less bloated, I’m losing inches and getting stronger every day. Mike is truly the best“ - Ashely W.

“Look no further. I’ve never had a fitness coach that came anywhere close to matching Mike’s level of expertise, professionalism, communication, kindness and drive to get you to where you want to be.” Richard D.

“Mike is an amazing trainer, from day one I could tell he was passionate about fitness and that carried through into his training with me. I have shoulder and hip issues from an accident which has been bothering me for years. Mike took that into account during my program, providing exercises I used to do with my physical therapist. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get stronger but more so if you want someone who will empower you!”
- Gabe (Los Angeles)
“A lot of people of to the gym for a target aesthetic, & Mikes passion for fitness moves beyond that. He coaxes a strength out of people that they didn't know they had" - Samantha (Los Angeles)

I came to Mike with the goal of building muscle, definition and feeling strong! Mike’s is very attentive, truly cares about my fitness journey. He also provides fun, challenging workouts many of which I’ve never tried. I’m still dropping my body fat percentage and packing on muscle. I'm still a work in progress but I can testify to Mike's ability to make the workout tough but exciting.

Robert B.

In the sea of personal trainers, Mike really stands out. I’ve worked with trainers before, and while it’s worked out sort of OK, I’ve never worked with anyone like Mike. He knows what he’s doing, and he pushes me to be better without breaking me. I love that he focuses on form and really works with me to get it right. He also makes sure I stretch before and after workouts, which admittedly was never something I prioritizes. Mike has a holistic approach to training, and his positive attitude and deep knowledge is the perfect match. I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to get in shape, mix up their routine, bulk up - or just have some amazing company while working out!

Mike is the best trainer in LA hands down! Not only training with him is fun but it is more of an educational and therapeutic experience. It’s the first time that I train with such frequency and intensity without getting injured.

Rayan

Mike is honestly the best trainer I’ve ever had. Anyone looking to take their fitness to the next level - This is your man!

Ryan R.

Mike has been a fundamental part of my health in the last year! I don’t know where I would be without him. Holding me accountable, creating tough yet fun workouts and being a friend is something I will never forget. Truly friends forever. I trained with Mike for a year and lost weight, got stronger & improved my life in general. I’m now in the process of buying a home but I’m still doing workouts Mike wrote up for me, pyramids, rower, all the things… down 8 lbs by myself. Never thought I could do it alone but Mike was my training wheels not my crutch. He taught me habits that I will carry for a lifetime. Plus my baseball game has stepped up due to the sport specific program he designed. Grateful and appreciative of what you taught me.

I have been training with Mike and my experience has been great! He is professional and very knowledgeable in his expertise. He pays a lot of attention to activating muscles before your workout and recovery. He's motivating and has a real passion for fitness. My goal is to get stronger and slimmer. I know I will conquer my goals with his guidance. My endurance has improved already! Don't hesitate to hire him you won't regret it. ????

Rich J.

Mike was very responsive to me, as well as extremely dedicated. He had my goals in mind the whole time and was able to provide a plan that I could keep up with just based on our first consultation.

Iffy

Mike has been integral in my post quarantine fitness journey. He took time to understand where I was and what my goals were and has been such a pleasure to work with! I love that he mixes up workouts so that it never feels repetitive and has shared a wealth of knowledge and tips with me that I’m able to apply toward my fitness goals outside of our workouts. I am so grateful for the support system I have found in Mike! For the first time in a long time I not only feel my fitness goals are within reach but that I can and will surpass those goals and be able to achieve beyond them. He’s influenced my lifestyle and habits in an immensely positive way. THANK YOU MIKE!
