As a trainer, Mike’s greatest satisfaction is derived from helping you meet “Life’s” many challenges and succeeding. Beginning in the Fitness Industry in 1981 and a BAC employee since 1985 Mike has garnered over three decades worth of experience in Fitness, Rehabilitation, and Sports Performance. His clientele range from individuals new to exercise to older adults, from post-therapy patients to athletes from elementary age through high school and collegiate to professional.
“An athlete resides within each one of us,” states Mike. “No matter our age or gender, we compete each and every day in the biggest race of all…the Human Race”.
He is the recipient of the Northwest Athletic Club Association (NACA) Fitness Director of the Year Award in 1992 and the National Volunteer Service Citation from the Arthritis Foundation 2000.
When not coaching and training athletes and clients, Mike enjoys weight training, racquetball, golf, watching football and baseball, reading fiction and non-fiction books, music, movies, working around his property, and most importantly spending time with his wife and their two kids.
“With deeper understanding comes greater benefit.”
