Mike developed a passion for training in the high school weight room working with teammates to get stronger for football and wrestling. The passion never died despite working long hours in manual labor jobs to help pay for school. This commitment to strength naturally led to studying Kinesiology at George Mason University. Through school he interned at True Fitness and Nutrition for a year discovering Powerlifting. He then cut his teeth training people at Golds Gym. Mike has a B.S. in Kinesiology and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Mike spends his free time with his family of 8 siblings and 13 nieces and nephews, and working with his hands.
If a job requires an 8 lb hammer a 16 lb hammer works twice as well. Brute strength is the most effective tool humans can develop to make life easier and battle aging. Every Human in the world can benefit from being stronger and I want to help everyone get there.
