Coach Mike is an eight-year veteran of the U.S. Navy Special Forces. After completing his service to his country, he suffered a life changing event, the death of his grandmother to cancer. That experience changed his life and as a result he experienced a mental shift to serve people in the area of health and fitness. His main purpose being to prevent them from enduring the pain that his grandmother and family experienced as a result of the cancer diagnosis.
He began his journey in health and fitness as an entrepreneur and opened his first gym “1 On 1 Health Fitness” in downtown Chicago, IL. He successfully cultivated a community that learned to embody the truth of the lifelong benefits of health and fitness. Within two years after opening his gyms, he was approached with an opportunity to serve more people by touring with the “Tony Robbins” company and touring North America. As part of the “Tony Robbins” company, he was able to reach over 4000 people in 300+ companies as a peak performance strategist. During his tour, he realized that there is a desperate need to serve more people on the topic of health and fitness outside of his community and his gyms.
Today, he serves people around the world as a powerful Success Coach & Motivational Speaker in the area of health and fitness that is empowered and manifested by his strong faith and belief in God. In 2015, he launched the Virtual Private Trainer “VPT” which allows him to serve anyone, anytime, everywhere in the area of health and fitness with a systematic approach to changing the psychology and physiology of his clients worldwide.
“The purpose for Coach Mike Speaks is to create a culture to inspire people to grow into their full potential they were designed to operate in by connecting the heart, mind and body to perform as one unit.”
