About Mike

My passion is to guide, motivate, educate and support people on thier path towards a healthier lifestyle. I experience a tremendous sense of purpose from working with people who have decided that their health and fitness is of primary importance to them. Before becoming a fitness professional I learned the tough lesson that living an unbalanced life can wreak havoc on the body, mind and spirit. I got into exercise to feel better and be healthy and later I became a coach to help others on their own personal health and fitness journeys. Strength Effect and “Getting Strong for Life” is about focusing on fitness that matters. Full-body strength is a key component of your optimal health and fitness profile. Practicing strength training is one of the most efficient and impactful ways to enhance the results of any goal and your quality of life. Whatever your age or experience level you are capable of using strength training to transform your fitness, unlock your athleticism and optimize your health.
