Hey there, I'm Mike- a personal trainer and TPI certified golf fitness specialist based out of Charleston, SC. I've set out to blend two passions of mine, golf & fitness, into an informative and educational online and in-person coaching business designed to help people near and far. My approach is centered around assessing every client to determine their movement limitations, asymmetries and imbalances. From there, I am able to carefully design a program that focuses on, and improves these areas in terms of how the body moves in the gym and during the golf swing. When I'm not working with clients, you can find me on the course, at the beach, or with my beautiful wife Cait and two pups.
I was born and raised in Eastchester, NY. I got my first taste of southern living when I attended Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC . I was a baseball player my entire life and continued to play throughout college. After school I moved back up to NY and began my personal training career. I began training at Equinox in Greenwich, CT and worked my way to become a Tier X coach as well as help write the exercise curriculum for incoming trainers. After working there for over five years, I left to start my own in-home personal training business. When we decided to make to move to Charleston I expanded my online coaching business and have begun working with golfers of all ability levels from across the country.
When it comes to fitness I've worked with people from all sorts of backgrounds, injuries, goals etc. Despite all these differences there seem to be a few universal commonalities:
-Play pain free golf
-Shoot lower scores
-Hit it further
Taking your goals into account, I base my training off of the knowledge I've gained learning from many of the best and brightest in the fitness industry. There is so much information available about training that it's hard to determine what is valuable and what is not. My view is simple: assess don't guess. From there, move well, move often and master the basics. Once you do those things, everything else gets easier and the sky is the limit.
