About Michael


My name is Mike. Fitness has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I can honestly say that I love being a trainer. When I was first certified in 2014, most of my clients had the same goals, lose weight, build muscle, look and feel better, etc. I've learned much in the fitness industry and I tend to focus my education more on special population such as post rehab and medical conditions.

As a medical exercise specialist (CMES), it is my duty to bridge the gap between clinical work and the general fitness community for patients recovering from a wide range of medical conditions. Due to my specialization, I have a comprehensive knowledge of medical fitness, I play a key role in restoring the health of post-rehabilitative clients and others challenged by their conditions. I strive to serve as a source of steady guidance for my clients, providing deep insight as they recover and work to achieve their health and fitness goals. I look to turn the tide on physical-inactivity related disease like heart disease and diabetes, and play a major role in improving the quality of life for my clients.
