"If you are looking for a personal trainer, I highly recommend Mike Crosky. He created a custom workout plan based on my goals and limitations. We agreed on a 30-minute workout 3 times a week. After only a month, I could see and feel the results. Not only was I growing stronger after every session, but my posture was also greatly improved as well. Mike pushes me to the limit and it makes me want to challenge myself. I feel he is truly vested in helping me develop a healthier, happier body."

"After time away from the gym due to Covid and shut down I was more than ready to get back to the gym. Even though I tried to stay active during the past two years with yoga and walks, I felt my strength was not where I wanted to be. I signed up at Lifetime, and decided I needed someone to direct me in meeting my fitness goals. It has been the best decision I've made for myself in a while.
To me, a personal trainer's focus should be to develop a personalized program for clients, coach, and monitor the clients progress. Mike does all that and more! Mike has been a super motivator and is always encouraging when I need that extra nudge to continue. He challenges my strength and abilities yet is very cognizant of safely guiding me by correcting my movement or technique on a particular exercise. He listens and makes adjustments as needed if my energy level is not where it should be on a given day. You are Mike's total focus for the time you are there. It's been a very positive experience and well worth the money." - MaryAnn F.
“My daughter Tannyr grew leaps and bounds from Coach Mike's private soccer sessions. Her ball skills, speed, strength and agility increased at such a high rate that she was brought up from JV to varsity in the same season. My daughter had been playing competitive soccer since age 11 however, it only took a few sessions with coach Mike to hone her skills and bring her to a higher level.
I was so impressed by her growth I asked Mike to train me in the gym and I too saw immediate changes in my body training 3x a week with Mike and it only took 4 weeks to see major differences. Although we live in different states now, the three of us bonded and created a lasting friendship as my daughter and I are honored to now consider coach Mike part of our family. Thank you, Mike, for always going above and beyond for your players and their family members.” - Sonja C.
"We first met Coach Mike when our daughter joined the Liberty High School Girls JVB soccer team. During that time, we watched our daughter's confidence grow and her soccer skills improve tremendously. Mike is patient, kind, and fiercely competitive, a balance that is unique in a coach. He knows how to bring out the best in his players and offers them a supportive, nurturing environment in which to learn and grow. He teaches his players not only how to make decisions for themselves but also how to learn from their mistakes and celebrate their successes.
Coach Mike’s instruction emphasizes the value of leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork, work ethic, perseverance, and goal setting. These are all valuable "life lessons" that have served our child well, both on and off the field. He is an excellent role model to all players on his team. We highly recommend him!" - Michelle H.
“Coach Mike went above and beyond to help my daughter improve her soccer skills. He attended her soccer games and watched her game tape. He really listened to our concerns and tailored her sessions around her needs. He always made himself available for questions and offered great feedback. We saw immediate improvements with our daughter and she really enjoyed her sessions. We would most definitely recommend Coach Mike to anyone!” - Heather D.
"When searching for an effective soccer trainer for our oldest son, Coach Mike Crosky’s name was recommended. Upon meeting Coach Mike, we immediately felt confident in the techniques he employed. He established high expectations from the start and through weekly sessions, Coach Mike continued to challenge our son to meet these expectations.
With each training session, our son was always pushed to perfect each skill and/or address weaknesses. He specifically communicated the skills to be worked on, stating specific reasons a player should improve these skills, and the steps needed to master them. Coach led our son through drills, while accepting no excuses for not attaining the end goal. With the conclusion of each session, Coach reviewed the training skills worked on, and had our son self-assess his abilities from each session.
After our son’s first training session with Coach Mike, he immediately inquired when he would be able to continue training, despite a 1.5-hour drive. Our son not only improved his soccer skills, but he was excited to share the knowledge gained from these training sessions with his family and teammates. Upon our son’s first school open-field, each coach commented on the improvement of his skill set & enthusiasm for the game. In addition, other player’s parents reached out to us to inquire about the improvement of his skills.
Coach Mike clearly communicated expectations, set high standards, and challenged both of our boys to constructively critique one another. Outside of the summer training sessions, Coach Mike continued to invest in the coach/student relationship, as he repetitively reached out to inquire about our sons’ soccer seasons. Coach Mike exceeded our initial expectations as a soccer trainer, as well as challenged our sons to attain their highest potentials." – Jim & Debbie S.

"Session was great! My son's first task was to review himself like a scouting report. Really made him think about his strengths and weaknesses. Proceeded right into drills and sent him home with “homework”. I can see an improvement after just one session. Looking forward to next session.” - Aliess
”When I did one on one training with Mike, my skill level skyrocketed. I never realized how much the touches on the ball improve all pieces of play in soccer. Not only did my play improve, but my confidence in playing the game did as well. I felt much more comfortable with the ball because I knew the skill that I had.” -Jenna S.
"My daughter has loved soccer since she was 3 years old. Unfortunately, we live in a small town where soccer programs are not well developed, and coaches are often volunteer parents. My daughter has always been driven to be a better player and to accomplish this, we have had to commit to traveling to offer her opportunities to develop as a player. Three years ago, she said to us, “I want to play soccer in college, and I need a good coach, a one-on-one coach”. We researched and found Mike and decided that we would make the 3-hour drive weekly to make it happen.
My daughter was so happy after her very first session, stating ‘I learned so much already” and from there she was hooked. Mike has helped her with all facets of her game, technical and tactical, offense and defense, ball handling, and first touch. I told him early on, this is a girl who has the drive and the talent she needs someone to believe in her and teach her, and that is exactly what Mike has done. I’m happy to say, that Riley was chosen as an All-Ohio athlete as a sophomore. I am convinced that Mike played a large part in making that happen. He has improved her confidence as well as her ability, and we will forever be grateful to him for that. He is top notch!"
