More About Coach Michael

Michael Urso is a personal trainer and nutrition coach. He's the founder of Coach Mike Urso Training Systems, a coaching system that helps his clients bust through roadblocks that are holding them back from achieving their goals. Through assessment and a keen eye, built on a decade of experience in the fitness industry, Coach Mike develops personalized programs for his clients that are focused on the results THEY want to achieve.

Coach Mike was a top 100 trainer for Equinox Fitness, has managed and led his training teams to the Equinox Tier X Club of the Year award, was a member of the Life Time Fitness Team Development Advisory Board where he developed company-wide educational content for their personal trainers, and most recently the Director of Training for a Boston-based fitness start-up where he developed training methodologies and systems to ensure the best possible experience for their clients.

Having helped clients lose massive amounts of weight and get incredibly strong in the process, Coach Mike is driven to see them become the best possible version of themselves. This is what gets him up in the morning!

His incredible family includes his wife, Jennifer, and two amazing daughters, Jordan and Madelyn. Some of his passions include practicing the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, blogging on his site elevatedtactics.com about upgrading health and human performance, playing acoustic guitar, and spending as much time with his family as humanly possible!

Coach Mike was a three-sport athlete in high school. He participated in baseball, basketball, and soccer. Currently, Coach Mike practices the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and competed twice in 2018 winning both Gold and Silver medals.

Each session with Coach Mike starts with addressing mobility restrictions, then priming the body with a series of muscle activations and dynamic warm-up drills. From there we begin working on strength training and typically finish with a metabolic conditioning circuit to maximize efficient fat burning and to optimize his client's energy system for performance gains.

Client Reviews

Right before I started my training sessions I was in the worst shape I have been. I was at 231 pounds with an unstable left knee (I couldn’t climb stairs without the support and I couldn’t even walk moderate distances without a knee brace) and an injured left shoulder. I started working out with Mike July 15th, 2013 and fast forward a year, I am down to 161 pounds (I weigh less than I did when I graduated high school in 1987) and I just got back from a very active one month trip to Myanmar where I did some serious hiking and climbing without having to use a knee brace or a hiking pole. Sure I can take credit for working hard, however, I have been a member of Gold’s Gym since 1999 (and I was regular), I have tried Crossfit and I have had personal trainers before. None of it really made any significant difference. I was “fitter” when I was serious about working out then when I wasn’t, but the difference was never so trans-formative or consistent. For that I completely credit Mike. From when we started he seemed so invested in my progress and he was so confident in his belief that I could change (I did not believe it myself), I think in the beginning I probably worked as hard as I did, to not disappoint him and not from any kind of self-motivation. Going to a gym has always been something that has given me anxiety. Mike has always been encouraging and patient with me. I have never felt him judging me on my physical state. It has helped me not only feel at home at the gym but I actually look forward to working out. Losing all the weight, strengthening my knee and shoulder are all great - however getting back my self-confidence and feeling positive about myself (after a really long time) is a gift.
I began training with Michael over a year ago. He is incredibly responsive to a client’s goals and works harder than anyone to help that person achieve those goals. In addition, he has introduced me to all kinds of training that have helped me change my body shape. I now love rowing and kettlebells and the ViPR. He knows exactly what we did the session before and therefore, switches it up, teaches me new skills, and we are always doing something new. I wanted a trainer that would totally kick my butt as training is expensive, to say the least, now I’m getting my money’s worth.
I started working with Mike the summer before my wedding and I am so happy I did. With his guidance, I lost inches and dropped my overall body fat percentage significantly in what felt like very little time! He is a great motivator and keeps your workouts interesting so you never feel bored or plateau. He’s also an excellent resource for nutrition and I really felt like I looked the best I had in years for my big day. We did exercises I’d never done before that strengthen not only the big muscles everyone hits but also the smaller, often neglected muscle groups. Not only do you look great but you are stronger and better at everyday activities. I felt awesome the rest of the day after our workouts and we always had fun. I was so excited with my results that I continued to train with Mike for another year after the wedding. I would definitely recommend him for all fitness levels and anyone looking to take their workouts to the next level.
