    Observant, interested, sensible, uses good judgment,flexible, knows when and when not to push me--All of these describe my experience of working with Michael for 8 months now. The longer I work with him, the more I see how he can help me. I look forward to continuing with him, especially for help staying motivated to be well and fit.

    Michael is GREAT. He listens and responds to my goals, is attentive to me when I am working out, and is always thinking of new ways to push me. Michael motivates me to do well and shows me the progress I have made. So far he has helped me stand up straighter, have improved circulation to my legs and have over-all better fitness.

    In addition to the support he provides with exercise goals and milestones, Michael is also a great resource for overall healthy living. Early on, we spoke about my eating habits and he made some great points about my sodium intake...since taking his advice and reducing the amount of sodium I eat, the circulation to my legs has dramatically improved, as well as swelling I had.

    Overall, Michael is a great motivator, a wealth of knowledge, and has the tools you need to look and feel better. I will keep Michael as my trainer, thats for sure!

    It was time to reclaim my body again and though I'd spent time at fitness centers in the past, I never had a personal trainer. This time around I wanted to do it right. And boy did I with choosing Michael.

    Michael helped me to gain the confidence to challenge myself in weights and equipment safely. He's inspired me to keep it up and now when I am working out at times on my own, "Virtual Michael" is ever present and encouraging me or challenging me. I feel I have reclaimed my body and don't believe I could have done as well as I have without Michael's help.

    Michael is an excellent personal trainer. He has the ability to take his complete fitness knowledge/training and translate it into a motivating, individualized program for his clients. I highly recommend Michael.

    Mike is an AMAZING personal trainer, motivator, and guide to helping you reach your fitness goals! I have appreciated his fitness expertise, and I wouldn't trade him for anyone else! He helped me accomplish the goals I set for myself, and then some! I'm telling you ladies and gents, you will NOT be disappointed with this guy!
