Hey there! My name is Michael "Wolf" Soriano. I am a fitness specialist who has dipped his foot in pretty much everything that the fitness industry has to offer. (*Update: I actually train at a new location separate from the location provided. The gym is called PB Fitness) I have an Associate's in Kinesiology and I like to make everyone laugh. To me, your smile plays a big part in your fitness journey. If you can smile through the toughest times then you can get through anything! I got into personal training for this specific reason. I not only help you with your physical battles, but also teach you how you can apply what you learn in the gym outside of it too! I like to work with driven individuals who like to have a good time while busting their butt at the same time. If this sounds like you, I look forward to meeting you!
My favorite client story
One of the most heartfelt stories I've ever received from a client was when she told me how much her relationship with food has changed so much. For years, she was struggling with weight loss and overall her confidence with who she was looking at in front of the mirror. Within 2 weeks with me we changed all of that. Granted I can take credit for all her hard work. She was one of the toughest and most favorite clients I have ever (and still) worked with.
My favorite exercise
I like walking on my hands :) Yes, you can ask me to show you
My training philosophy
When you step into this gym just know that for the hour you are with me you step away from everything outside. This is 1 hour you get to focus on bettering yourself!
My training experience
I wrestled and played football all throughout middle and high school. I have done bodybuilding, powerlifting, Crossfit, as well as functional fitness. All my life, I love the art of movement and I hope I can help you do the same!

If you're looking for someone who is motivated, dedicated and determined you have found your guy!
I came to Michael a few months ago with the hopes of getting stronger and losing the rest of my weight I had gained after kids and life. Michael went above and beyond as a coach and trainer. He talked me through a lot of my self doubts and helped me realize where I wanted to be and who I wanted to be as an athlete. He gave me tools that I could apply myself later on. Going through this process with him helped me realize you have to love who you are in EVERY step of your journey. Michael changed my meal plan and adjusted my training plan along the way as my goals changed. I am now using his meal plan to prep for my first powerlifting meet in December. 100% recommend him!
If you are truly serious about achieving your goals, Michael Soriano is the trainer you want. He will motivate you, make you question your sanity possibly, and he will help you achieve your fitness goals! His work ethic and his determination are nothing short of amazing!
I’ve known Mike for about 10 years now. He is an aspiring physical therapist and a fitness connessiour. I’ve had the pleasure of working out with him a few times and he definitely knows what he is talking about. He is extremely knowledgable in kinesiology, nutrition, strength training, and mobility work. His drive and passion for fitness breeds a culture of success for those who follow his lead. If you are looking for a trainer who will assist you in crushing your goals, then I highly recommend that you get in contact with Mike!
If you want someone who will push you to give your best effort, as long as you’re willing to give it, and make sure that your time is spent wisely and enjoyably - Michael is your guy. He is genuinely a great guy with the exact energy someone needs to get into fitness and make it “stick” to become a passion.
I have had an awesome transformation during my time training with Wolf. He trains not only the body, but also works on healing and helping to push the body to its max. Teaching how to use bones and muscles correctly with excellent results.
So glad I picked Wolf out of my options. He listened to me and is giving me exactly what I need to be successful.
