    Mike was born and raised in Westford and currently still resides in town with his wife and three kids. He has owned and operated Fitness Together Concord for the past 7 years and is very excited to also now be the owner of Fitness Together, Westford. Mike was an instructor at the Professional Fitness Institute in Las Vegas, where he trained and mentored new trainers for 5 years. He has over 15 years of experience of training all different populations, ranging from professional fighters and wrestlers to post rehab and older populations. Through this experience he brings a well-rounded approach. As a purest he believes that with hard work and nutrition results can be obtained. Mike's philosophy involves equal importance in strength/resistance training, metabolic conditioning and cardio endurance. The most rewarding aspect of the job is seeing each client's hard work pay off while making fitness a part of their daily routine.

    I grew up in Lowell, MA where I participated in track and field in high school. All throughout college I was very much into weightlifting and developed a passion for martial arts. I studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which I now teach, and competed in a number of competitions. I later took up boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. I have competed in mixed martial arts at a professional level and also help prepare other fighters and martial artists for competition. As a health and fitness professional I believe it is important to motivate and share my knowledge with others. I look forward to helping everyone on their journey to reach their fitness goals.

    in my free time I like to
    In my spare time I enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, playing guitar, and freestyle skateboarding. I also have a 5-year-old Newfoundland named Gracie that keeps my wife and I on our toes.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.
