A natural athlete, Mike grew up playing a variety of sports from ice hockey to lacrosse. He attended the Starting Strength Seminar in March of 2017 before moving back to Maine to begin coaching clients ranging from nurse practitioners to corporate professionals, all out of his garage.
After seeing the success of his clients and realizing his own passion to coach others, he moved back to California to begin work at The Strength Co in March of 2018 and he obtained his Starting Strength Coaching Certification in early 2019.
Mike recently cut down to less than 7% body fat before competing in the USSF meet in Phoenix AZ and squatted 568 lbs, pressed 216 lbs and deadlifted 588 lbs at a bodyweight of 193. (You can watch the lifts in Video tab.)
