My favorite exercise

My favorite exercises are based on transferable skills so you can function and live every day in less pain

My training philosophy

My philosophy is based on balance. Not just balance in the traditional sense, although I do work on balance extensively with my clients. Balance being, finding what areas are lacking, whether it's stability, strength, mobility, nutrition or other and helping each client close the gap on those areas. Balance also refers to the degree in which you pursue your goals. As an example, if you eliminate all your social interactions because fear of "unhealthy" activities, that's certainly not going to bode well for your mental health. We need balance in our lives

Literally changed my world. Three years ago, I had chronic back issues, herniated discs, digestive issues, depression and a weak core due to multiple abdominal surgeries. After three months training with Mike, I had no pain, lost 13 pounds, tightened my core and was happy and healthy with a new outlook on life. I worked with Mike seasonally for 4 years. Mike's knowledge about nutrition,anatomy,health and getting results quickly are a tribute to his determination, his Masters Degree in Health Science and his innovative approach to training. He is tough but understanding. He is a great listener and will always push you to your limit but he demands constant feedback as to how you are feeling. Mike is a trainer who gets results. He is admired by clients and colleagues and is an inspiration to us all.

I am 75 years old and have been working with Mike for a few weeks. I have already noticed an improvement in my balance and strength. After my initial evaluation, I was immediately aware that Mike knows more about how my body works than I ever will ! The exercises he has me doing are specifically designed to address my weaknesses, although I have been working out for several years. Just this morning, on the Tennis court, I was told that I am much quicker and more alert and hitting the ball better. I never thought I would happily go to the gym several times a week but it seems to be paying off with Mikes help!
