About Michael

Michael Okech has been a competitive rugby player for over a decade, playing in Kenya, the US, the United Kingdom, France, and Vancouver, Canada.

After finishing his university degree, his passion for sport and fitness inspired him to become a personal trainer, concentrating on weight management, body sculpting, cardiovascular conditioning, endurance training and sport specific training.

Michael’s committed and positive approach enables his clients to test their physical and mental limits. His strength lies in his ability to motivate each client to find enjoyment in exercising through programs that are fun, challenging, and lead to great results. He realizes that this doesn't come easily to everyone, so he tailors his programs so there is something that appeals to everyone.

One of the things Michael enjoys most about working with his clients is the opportunity to educate, empower and positively impact their lives as a whole. He is also a firm believer in continuing education and is currently exploring the idea of Movement Integrity using Fascial Stretch Therapy as a tool to get his clients moving towards proper function, working at their maximum capacity and staying bulletproof.

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will". Mahatma Gandhi.
