I’m Mike, you can call me Coach Mike for short!
I live in Orlando, Florida and have grown up and lived all around Florida for most of my existence. I am known for working out all the time but that’s just not true, I wish! I vary my training between CrossFit, body building, sprint triathlon training, and I try to play some ball sports when I can. I have the cutest, sweetest, smartest blue nose Pitbull named Morti, who is my gym partner in my garage gym. My typical daily grind is athlete in the morning, rocket scientist by day, and a fitness coach at night. I am great at planning parties/events and group trips! You’ll find me as a down to earth, easy going, positive vibes kind of guy.
I worked with Chasity before FLA was built. I have her to thank for establishing a solid foundation for my nutrition education. I fell in love with the knowledge that she gave me, and it made me want to help others. When I just started to get involved with the FLA Tribe, it opened my eyes on how much we can help each other accomplish goals with a strong, power, inspiring group whose got our back.
I played sports my entire life but didn’t get into the typical fitness or strength/aerobic training until I graduated college. I got hooked on how it made me feel and look. Since sports were not as common after high school, I wanted to be able to use fitness as a sport. I became a certified strength and conditioning coach so I could help others train for specific sports and events.
