Mike Rule is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Association Of Sports Medicine (NASM), and also holds a BA in Communications/Broadcasting with a minor in Psychology from Washington State University.

Mike has been active and athletic his entire life and has a passion for fitness that goes back as far back as he can recall.  He has been lifting weights for over thirty years and has also been a runner (not a very good one, he claims) for the past twenty-five years.   He also enjoys playing basketball.

Mike has had his own struggles and challenges to overcome, battling with weight issues when he was a youngster that continued off and on in adulthood. He has also had his fair share of injuries to overcome including a torn bicep, torn pec, plantar fasciitis, arthritic knees, and many others.

Due to these challenges, Mike is acutely aware of what it feels like to deal with adversity in life.  He strongly believes that the mental benefits of exercise are just as important as the physical.

Mike’s primary focus is to help YOU to reach your fitness goals.  He does this by providing you with structure, coaching, and emotional support.  He is a big believer in utilizing a combination of strength training and cardio training to achieve his clients fitness goals.  He adapts this combination to your individual needs and capabilities, creating a plan that is specific to you.
