At the age of 15, and for the 10 years that followed, Mike focused his energy almost entirely in growing and developing as a competitive powerlifter - the sport where he found his passion of becoming an elite strength and conditioning coach. At 19, Mike became a WABDL World Champion in the Bench Press and Deadlift. While working as a D1 collegiate strength & conditioning coach, Mike was introduced to the power of the kettlebell, Suples bulgarian bag, and the work of respected Holistic Health Practitioner Paul Chek. All have had large influences on Mike's development as a more well-rounded athlete and coach in the years that followed.
Currently, as an avid Kettlebell Sport competitor, Mike has achieved the ranking of Master of Sport (Long Cycle & Biathlon), and became the 2017 WAKSC World Champion in Long Cycle.
Through his unique approach, Mike has been able to integrate a high performance form of athletic training using a holistic model. He primarily travels teaching workshops, and is a consultant/coach to professional athletes seeking a more balanced approach to life and sport.
