Experienced.. AFAA, ACE and IDEA Certified with over 25 years of experience in the Health and Fitness industry, “I have literally changed thousands of bodies”. From the smallest of programs to specialized performance regiments. Applying proven techniques to transform my clients into the best shape of their lives. Relentless.. You bet, I want you to fulfill the goals we set. Technique and proper form is only half the battle, once we master that we are well on our way to open the door for the new you. Nutrition also plays a vital role too. The average person doesn’t take the time to really think about what they put in their body. I will break down the basics of nutrition and address different foods from ingredients to food labeling. “You are what you eat” Intense.. Absolutely, I will push you to your individual limits with a “safe” and “effective” program. Past injuries and limitations will always be addressed. We can work around these issues with a specialized program for functionality and mobility. Professional.. Always, with age come integrity, dependability and reliability. I am not happy unless you’re satisfied with your results. I’ll take the word “die” out of “diet” and put “fun” in “functionality".

    I was an armchair senior citizen with recent shoulder and back operations under my was now or never! I have had several very successful training sessions with Michael at the Caughlin Club concentrating on muscle tone, range of motion and pain management. Michael reccomended a very good training program tailored especially for me. His expertise allowed me to work at my own pace and was designed to strengthen my muscles and improve my range of motion while avoiding painful exercises. His superior knowledge, fitness enthusiasm, and teaching skills have helped me reintroduce exercise back into my life. Thanks Michael!

    When I decided to run for the Ms. Senior America title in 2014, I was not in – to put it mildly – pageant contestant shape. Fortunately, I found trainer Michael Saiz who agreed to work with me, and in three short months, got me into the fabulous shape I needed to finish in the top ten in the national pageant.

    When I decided, in 2015, to take another run at the title, I engaged Michael to refresh the program he had prepared for me the previous year. He prepared a program that not only got me in the outstanding shape I needed to be, but did so while helping me work through some nagging injuries that were holding me back.

    With the help of his program, at the age of 62, the year 2015 culminated with me winning the title of Ms. Senior Utah 2015, and finishing in the national pageant as Ms. Senior America 2015 Top Ten, and Ms. Senior Transatlantic 2015 3rd Place.

    Michael Saiz is not only an outstanding trainer when you are working with him, he also does something for you not all trainers do. He gives you the tools and programs you can use to carry on the program by yourself, should you wish to do so. While I’m no longer training for a pageant, I continue to use the training program Michael designed for me, to maintain my continued fitness.

    Given my own wonderful experience, I’m happy to recommend Michael Saiz for your fitness training and coaching needs.

    I have trained with Michael Saiz. On a scale of 1 to 10...I give Michael a 9++. He is a true professional!
    Very positive and has a wonderful personality...making him very easy to work with.

    I have started 4 companies from scratch. In the process, I have interviewed and hired many people. I would hire Michael in a "New York Minute".

    Michael is a very professional and knowledgeable personal trainer with a desire for people to achieve their goals.
    I worked with Michael to gain weight and tone up for the “Best of The West” Bodybuilding Show in October 2015.
    I gained 10 pounds and lowered my body fat in the low teens. Michael help change my diet, exercise and weight training to tailor fit my program and work schedule.

    Having an experienced personal trainer in my program such as Michael is a definite must to be competitive.
    Being a competitor himself, Michael is also a great posing teacher too.
    This in itself is very critical in a show. Thanks to his technique, I learned how to pose properly and placed a respectable 4th in my division.

    I look forward to the next year training with Michael to push me to the next level!
    If your looking for a great trainer and all around great guy, look no further!
    Thank You Michael.

    Working with Michael has been the absolute best thing I have done to improve my fitness and health.When I started with Mike back in February 2015 my stats were 6'2" 221lbs at 21% body fat. I am now at 215lbs and 14.5% body fat currently all done while working 1 to 2 days a week with him and eating healthy.I am pain free, I feel stronger, more energetic, sleep better, and my wife says I look much younger. Michael has taught me to listen to my body when lifting, to change it up if something is not working, to eat right, the importance of rest/recovery, and inspired me to take it to the next level. It seems as if the people around me are becoming healthier as well as a result of my fitness journey. My wife is now at the gym 4-5 days a week. My kids are playing sports, riding their bikes and just being more active, eating better and performing well in school. It just keeps getting better. Thankyou Michael Saiz, you are truly an amazing person.
