Michael began his lifelong love for sports and fitness at the age of 3 years old in a mom & me gymnastics class. By high-school he was competing at a national level despite his minor setbacks including a stress-fractured spine and reconstructed tibia. Through his perseverance he’s been measuring his successes and redefining potentials. After walking on to The Ohio State University, Varsity Men’s Gymnastics Team, he proved his value by becoming a Division 1 NCAA Letterwinner. In continuous love for the sport, after graduation, Michael directed his passion into coaching gymnastics at various levels in Ohio, Texas, and NYC, producing state champions along the way. During this time, he enjoyed his newfound leisure in physical activity while continuing to feed his competitive nature through both Boxing and Crossfit where he had the opportunity to train alongside 2010 Crossfit Games Champion, Graham Holmberg. Most recently, Michael used his time as a Physical Education coach to gain a better understanding of the dynamics involved in Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Track and Wrestling while working in tandem with a team of Physical Therapists to implement injury prevention and concussion management strategies.
Michael is currently pursuing acquisition of a Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy while continuing to pay forward his love of gymnastics through his art of coaching. Recognizing that there is no substitute for experience, Michael takes pleasure in personally exploring new physical activities and enjoys pushing his boundaries through mountain and rock climbing.
Michael’s philosophy in Personal Training is true to the principle of “Specific Adaptations to Imposed Demands” furthermore, he believes any discrepancy in your ideal-self and your current-self is temporary. His role as a Personal Trainer is to help you clearly define your own goals, map out the route to achieve them and help you to overcome any barriers along the way.
