I went through some major life stressors in my mid 40s, contributing to my letting an active lifestyle lapse and gaining over 100 pounds. When I hit 50 years old and decided to do something about it, I was blessed to connect with Michael. Under his guidance, I was able to steadily lose all of that weight, regain my health and fitness, and accomplished some endurance athletic feats I wouldn't have dreamed were possible. Michael's training expertise and committment led me to medalling at Ironman Germany as well as making the roster on Team USA for two world championship duathlon teams. JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, he believed in me, and helped me believe in myself, when I initially presented morbidly obese and deconditioned. He is awesome and amazing! We have regularly worked together for over five years, and I intend to stick with him at least several more decades!
