Mike is an immensely creative and diverse trainer, complementing teaching the techniques of fundamental movements such as squats and deadlifts with a wide variety of work on rotation, mobility, core strength, balance, and in general the shoring up of whatever weaknesses his broad array of exercises (many of his own making) turns up. In addition to the workouts themselves, he provides people with instruction in nutrition and recovery that they can put to use between training days. His breadth of knowledge and experience, as well as his intelligence and communication, allow him to serve a range of clients from athletes seeking improved performance to the injured or long-sedentary seeking the restoration of health. I have been training with Mike for more years than I can remember, and hope to continue to do so as long as he works in my vicinity.

I have worked with Mike as a cycling coach for three years now. Mike is dedicated, passionate, and works hard to tailor a program to the individual's specific goals and interests. If you're looking to become an Elite cyclist that competes at the highest levels, Mike can put together a proven winning program for you. If you're just looking to get a little stronger and faster on the bike in the time you can devote to the program - he'll do that too. The flexibility and willingness to tailor a specific program for each individual is one of his best assets. In addition, Mike mixes up several different styles and types of training programs along with sport specific training. This allows you to stay engaged and avoid getting "bored" with sport specific repeats and doldrums.

Michael and I have been co-workers since April 2010 when I started working at Sunset Athletic Club; he's been there for longer. Quite a few members overlap in taking his studio cycle classes and my Tabata and other group-ex classes. I've heard nothing but good things about his classes from the members we have in common. Members still talk about his "Michael Mania" class, which they miss. I got a chance to get to know Michael better this summer as he attended the CrossCore training that I taught. I'm impressed with the breadth of his knowledge and his commitment to provide excellent, current training to his clients.

Mike was my cycling coach for 3 years. During that time I had significant improvements that were noticed by my teammates and race results. I got started in bicycle racing at 48 and had my best years with Mike's guidance and support. I would recommend him to anyone looking for cycling specific improvements.

Mike is a hard working, involved, and committed coach. Your success as an athlete will be constrained by your own limits, not Mike's.
