I’ve always felt that one of the key aspects of fitness is consistency.  There will be days when you are eager to workout, go for a run, etc. and that’s great.  But it’s the days when working out is the LAST thing that you want to do that will test your mettle.  How you respond on those low energy days when you struggle for motivation is a crucial factor in your quest to reach your fitness goals.

“We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence therefore is not an act, but a habit.”

~ Aristotle

If you can battle through your workouts on challenging days it will build toughness and increase your confidence with the knowledge that you can persevere.  My goal is to help you overcome any obstacles you have (or think you have), to getting in the kind of condition that makes you feel your best.

Worth the drive from Seattle! I wish I could do this more than once a week, but even one day is making a difference. It has been a great way to jump start my tiny glimmers of motivation for other activities. Mike is the man!

For the past two years I have been trying to get in better shape so I might contribute more to the soccer team I play with and lose the arm flaps and spare tire that has settled around my waist.  A good diet, weekly soccer games and other semi-routine physical activity had zero results.

Seven weeks ago I started training with Mike and it is the best thing I have done to reach my goals!  I feel really great, have played better soccer (scored a goal last week!!) and have lost 10 pounds too!

If you would like to feel better and look better – don’t hesitate – call Mike!  He makes the time we work out fly by and has hit my problem spots on the nose with the workouts he plans for me.  It isn’t just a tag line: Fitness Rules!!   Feeling positive.
