Assessment of abilities and level of performance. Determine client's goals and expectations. Build long term program with benchmarks. Establish training program. Include specific exercises for development (movements, appropriate weight, reps, sets, etc.). Program can be an intensive session of non-stop exercise like cross fit, or a program of weight training with selected focused exercises for movement and muscle development or overall physical maintenance. Excellent programs for mature women and men for their personal lifetime maintenance. Aggressive programs for those wishing to compete and win. NOTE: these two examples are very different in structure due to the objectives of the clients.

Client Reviews

Professional trainer.

Coach Michael is terrific. He’s coached my 11 year old boy who knew the fundamental strokes and seems to have some natural swimming proclivity but had virtually no technique whatsoever. My goal in hiring Coach Michael was to get the boy to sufficient form that he could take this sport anyway he wanted (joining a swim team, going the water polo route, whatever he chooses). I couldn’t have chosen a better coach. And, I believe that’s the case because you couldn’t find a more experienced coach out there. But none of that would matter if Coach Michael wasnt extremely friendly and personable, which he is. More than anything though, Michael clearly loves to teach. He enjoys not only talking about swimming but sends his students swimming videos to watch and a journal to keep.

Michael is congenial and a clear, effective communicator. His advice is broken into portions so that you can focus on one problem per drill. He gives accurate, appropriate and detailed technical guidance that immediately fixed two problems with my stroke. My distance per stroke went up 1-2 ft in one lesson.

We didn't want our girls to lift weights as part of their swimming program because we saw how big and heavy other girls had become. Michael promised us that our girls wouldn't be like that and would be able to beat the other girls. He convinced us. His program worked and our girls were the most petite and cute, and, with confidence, whooped those other ones.
I had never lifted weights before. I started out working with Mike. My maximum on the bench press was 120 lbs. A year and a half later, I could press 270 lbs. His training and motivation and his belief in me changed my life.
