What Mike’s Clients Say:
For two years, Mike has prepared excellent training programs for me. I am grateful. He taught and I did. By overcoming my challenges with staying in shape, Mike also prepared me for classes offered at the Center. I strongly recommend his training. Thank you, Mike.
I have been training with Mike for a long time. When we started, I had a lot of limitations. Old and new injuries set me back. I was determined to work around them but didn’t know how. Mike is well-educated and helped me accomplish goals while compensating for any obstacles I had– and there were a lot. I was impressed with his knowledge. I was confident the workout he created for me was a life-plan, not a quick solution. I recommend Mike as a trainer to everyone.
