Mike's passion for health is as strong as anyone's! He did not always have this appreciation for health and fitness, however. Raised on junk food and candy, Mike struggled with his weight as a kid and did not have any knowledge about eating right until a few years into college. Although he was not overweight at that time, he knew that being healthy was important for a long, high quality life. So, he began educating himself - working out on his own, cooking his own meals, and researching the latest health trends. When he learned he could help others do this as well, he began studying Exercise and Health Science at Kennesaw State University.
He graduated with his Bachelor's in 2004 and has been working for Fitness Together since 2002. In fact, he was the first employee at Fitness Together East Cobb. Mike is also a nationally certified personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise and is CPR and AED Certified through the American Red Cross. He worked as a trainer for many years, completed his internship through Fitness Together, became the manager, and finally purchased the studio with his wife, Katie, in 2006.
Mike keeps the studio running like a well oiled machine. Making sure the clients receive top notch customer service and personal training is one of his main goals. Mike loves working with people, no matter how challenging their struggles may be.
