About Michael

I have been an athlete all of my life. I played ice hockey for 18 years and currently enjoy tennis, swimming, and cycling. I also enjoy photography, cooking, and the drums. I'm a very personable personal trainer. My clients work hard, see results, and have a great time in the process. I became a trainer because I enjoy helping others reach goals they never thought they could. Whether you wish to get leaner, build muscle, improve at a sport, or just look and feel better, please contact me to set up a session!

I've been training with Michael for over 6 years. He's by far the best personal trainer I've had. Simply outstanding. He's very thoughtful about my needs as a client; he custom designed our workouts to focus on power first and now on endurance. He listens intently and has adjusted our workouts based on my specific needs and we've successfully avoided aggravating prior injuries. He's always positive and upbeat; needless to say, after our workouts, I'm always feeling upbeat myself. I highly recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Training with Michael inspired me to take on a whole new, exciting, and enduring approach to my health and fitness. He's helped me reach many goals, continue to set new ones, and push past what I previously thought were my limits, both physically and mentally. He creatively matches your workouts to your interests. And while you’re having so much fun, you don’t even realize how hard you’re working or how much stronger you’re getting. That is until you see the results, in the way you look and feel. Anyone would be lucky to call Michael their personal trainer.

Michael has transformed my training regimen helping me focus on gaining more hip mobility, strengthening posture and core, and enhancing my overall fitness/ strength. He has also helped tailor a training routine which I can use in hotels when travelling. Overall, great fun and great results.

A very keen and organised PT. Michael can motivate the most motivated couch potato into a sporting god. His training programs are very testing and deliver outstanding results. I cannot recommend Michael more highly.

Michael is a terrific trainer and person. He is genuinely interested in my objectives. He is always encouraging and gives me 100% of his attention. Michael comes prepared and keeps it moving. Big improvement in my fitness!

I have worked with Michael for more than a year. I have always been a runner but not much of anything else! So Michael developed a plan to help me build strength and reduce body fat. It has been a great program and has greatly improved my running too, a nice side effect. He also worked with me through a few injuries (ankle and broken finger).

I started training with Michael little over a year ago. After discussing my personal goals Michael came up with a workout plan which suited me really well. It started with pure strength but and gradually shifted to more metabolic and Trx kind of stuff. At all points Michael stayed attentive to my body's response to the training and we worked out through some injuries as well. Like a fractured hand and fractured foot (separate occasions). If definitely recommend Michael as one of the top personal trainers out there.
