I consider Mike to be an outstanding ‘life’ trainer and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about improving health and wellness. I’m 36 and trained with Mike for over 6 months in Southern California last year. I was always in good shape as an old Army guy, but Mike helped me take it to another level. Results? (1) I dropped 4% on my body fat levels and now hover between 10-12%, (2) I removed high fructose corn syrup and other man-made toxins from my diet and now properly read ingredients on packages at the supermarket, (3) I dumped soft drinks completely and have been ‘sober’ for over a year–I was addicted to Diet Coke (4) I added ‘power’ breakfasts to my routine in the morning (rolled oats, steel-cut oats, granola) to help me burn energy throughout the day, and (5) I dumped the latest ‘fad’ enhancers like turbo drinks (that I would use prior to workouts) for good ole’ ice-cold H2O. Basically, I went into the program wanting to improve a specific body part (my abs) and left improving my entire physical structure. I also learned more than I ever wanted to know about how the body works, heals and transforms itself. Mike challenged me not only with physical conditioning, but with mental discipline, nutrition, diet, and general wellness to keep it going, which I have now for over a year. Again, I highly recommend him.
