“As a very busy breast surgeon I am on my feet for hours at a time, so my skiing accident left me with a blown out knee, an incapacitated leg and a very depressed spirit. Were it not for the incredibly timely and sophisticated intervention by a supportive, kind, and experienced trainer, I am not sure if I could have returned as promptly to taking care of my breast cancer patients. Injuries can be terribly devastating, but through Michael’s help mine put me on a path to becoming stronger and committed to fitness. Maybe I was fortunate to have an injury! “

“I had bought into the ‘You’re over 40 and over-the-hill attitude’.” Michael put me on a managed nutritional program and an exercise program that were customized for me. I used to dread exercise and now I kind of enjoy it. He taught me how to eat more consciously and now I make better choices with confidence! Within 20 weeks, I lost 50 pounds and dropped six dress sizes! Since then, I’ve lost another 40 pounds and the best part is I’ve kept it off for two years now! Since beginning with Michael, my backache has disappeared and I sleep like a baby. And I have muscle now! I changed my life. Michael is very even-keeled. He’s tough, but he motivates me to do my best.”

“Thanks to Michael, I’m in the best shape of my life! I’ve always been active and have done a variety of workouts but this is the first time where I have a balance of my optimal physical, nutritional AND mental fitness, and of course, how I look overall. Michael will push me beyond what I thought I could do (102 pushups in 3 minutes) but will ease up on me on the days when I need to recover. I see the same people working out at the gym year after year, and they look exactly the same. This is why I have a trainer – I don’t want to waste an hour “working out” if I’m not going to see results! Michael makes it easy – he will guide you on what to eat (without being unrealistic) and guide your workouts, so there are no excuses for not getting in the best shape of your life.”

“For the first time in my life, I have an exercise program that I actually enjoy and I’m committed to staying healthy!

“Michael is not just a personal trainer or a nutrition coach. He offers motivation, education and support for a healthy way of life. I am so grateful to have found him!”

“After nearly two years of working out with Michael, I am still learning something new every session. He’s much more than a ‘personal trainer’ – he’s a wealth of information, inspiration, and good-natured motivation. Working with Michael has been a lifestyle changing experience for me AND my family.”
