  • When I started training with Mike I was pretty desperate. I was a 32 year old father of two with a “dad-bod”. No matter how much I worked out on my own I never seemed to see any results especially when I looked in the mirror. After I started training with Mike the weight started to fall off almost immediately and my body began to change back to something I could be proud of. I had no prior boxing experience before and have loved learning a new skill while challenging myself at the same time physically and mentally. Thanks to Dope Ass Coach my limits are endless.

  • "I’ve been a Dope Ass Coach convert for over 3 years now. It’s always been important to me to find the best of the best trainer plus I also need someone I respect and truly enjoy being around- a dope ass coach. My fitness needs have evolved over the years, and Mike has adapted my program to reach all my ever-changing goals. I first began training with Mike to get beach body ready for a photo shoot in Greece... and he delivered! After some life events and heavy emotional eating leading to a 30 lb weight gain, he pivoted my program toward weight loss with manageable milestones and helped me get back on the saddle. Now we are rehabbing a serious ankle injury while still maintaining total body fitness. Mike is a pro at adjusting exercises according to my body‘s needs on any given day. No matter what goals, injuries, or fitness needs I have, Mike will forever be my go-to coach and a solid friend. "
