I am a PROPTA certified personal trainer and certified nutrition consultant with 10 years of training experience under my belt which will help you achieve your personal goals, be it weight loss and tone, strength and size, or athletic enhancement. I have the experience to help you get where you want to go.
I have a diverse variety of clientele: Ranging from the mother of three kids to the active businessman to the athletic fanatic. My clients also include individuals who are trying to manage their weight and lifestyle without rearranging their life around the gym.
Some of my clients are already in the ideal shape and are just looking for someone to help push and motivate them to help them keep that perfect form and push out that one extra rep. Other clients are just beginning and want to get into shape and need someone to show them the ropes and give them some nutritional consulting as well.
My training style varies from work out to work out. No two training sessions are the same as I believe in keeping the body guessing and preventing it from hitting a plateau which will result in consistently getting another step closer to achieving your goal.
Some of my training tactics are high volume moderate intensity, rest – pause, low volume high intensity, isolation movements, pyramid training, reverse pyramid training, supersets, tri-sets, giant sets, drop sets, circuit training, cross fit, group training, just to name a few. Whatever your goal is, I am here to help get you into the shape and condition that you want and need.
Whether it is to look like a fitness model, be a bodybuilding competitor, lose a few pounds or just build up strength and endurance. My reputation is based on your success so my goal is to help you reach your goal.
What is one on one personal training?
Just what it sounds like. Mike will work with you and only you during your training session and give you 100% of the attention and not split it amongst others while training.
What is group training?
Group training is when Mike trains a group of 3 -6 people at one time and he will have you all doing something different and checking on everyone’s form. Attention is obviously split between each person.
What is in home training and do I need to have a gym at my house?
This is where Mike comes to your home to train you. You do not need to have a gym at your house or even any equipment. Mike will provide all of the equipment and exercises needed to be done.
How do I know what is the best program for me?
Once an appointment is made to sit down and meet, Mike will discuss your fitness goals and then determine which method of training will be best suited for you.
I hear a lot of how it will hurt after I start training. Is this true?
You will be sore your first week of training but it will pass. Mike is very good about understanding how to train you to minimize the soreness so that you can still move around. Most trainers overdo it from the beginning in an attempt to impress you the client resulting in severe soreness and pain. Mike is not an ego maniac and your safety and results are his number one priority.
How do I sign up for personal training?
You can register by filling out the forms and sending them via email or you may register online. You may also fill out all papers and sign up in person with Mike when you set up an appointment.
How do I pay for sessions and when?
You can either pay in person by cash or check or you can use our secure paypal payment program found on the services tab of this web site. All sessions must be paid for in full before they are started.
How often do I need to meet for personal training sessions?
That is completely up to you on how often you would like to meet with Mike. Mike will suggest to you how many may be needed depending on your goal but you will decide what is within your need and budget.
What can I expect to achieve?
You can expect to lose inches and drop pounds while becoming more fit and toned. That is an amazing feeling and will encourage you to continue moving forward. Results depend also on your eating habits.
How important is my diet? Cant I just work out and get where I want to be?
Unfortunately you cant just diet alone. You will lose weight but you will also develop a lot of loose skin if you don’t incorporate an exercise program with it. Diet is a huge factor. In fact 60% or your progress and improvements will come from diet alone. Mike will help you with your diet to help ensure that you will be getting the proper gains and results.
Pre personal training info
We will take a few simple measurements to see where you are prior to beginning training. We will take your weight and body fat %. We don’t care what the measurements show in the beginning. It’s strictly for a post comparison. We will retake measurements on the same date every month to see the comparisons. These numbers and all other information will be held in the strictest of confidence.
