My fitness journey began as a mere 9-year-old. As a young athlete, innately I looked up to pro athletes of the day and their physical abilities. I wanted to emulate them, so it only made sense to train my body accordingly. Obviously, at that age, I had no idea how to train but the passion and desire for fitness that I have today stem back to that time period.
Fast forward to today... As a coach, my programming philosophy is all about the client and their needs. I want them to feel seen, heard, and respected. My sessions are a mix of playful and sternly focused. I am direct yet kind. I enjoy laughing with my clients while also providing them with a comprehensive exercise experience. The old cliche of "Work hard, play hard" can certainly be used to sum up my sessions. No matter your age, background or objectives, I am excited to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

Age with Ease
Our bodies change as we age. I mean, we all aren’t 25 anymore. Perhaps the exercises you used to do are no longer working with your body, or maybe you’ve stopped seeing results. Mike can help you adjust or adapt your program, which will allow you to maintain functionality and strength as we gain a couple of wrinkles and gray hairs.
Exercise and activity shouldn't be a drag, right?! When programmed correctly, exercise is very enjoyable in and of itself. Group or buddy training can be a great way to increase enjoyment, make exercise social and keep yourself accountable. Mike makes training fun and enjoyable.
