NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach
A lifelong athlete, starting in my youth playing baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, then football. Passing on an offer to play third base for a junior college baseball team, I opted to get a degree at a 4-year college, while playing semi-pro. By this time, I had a very clear perspective on how critical a coach’s influence is in an athlete’s development and success, both good and bad.
When I became a father, I ended up coaching my son’s baseball team as a batting instructor. I realized that I had a knack for it, and was getting great results from the players. The players began calling me “Coach Mick.” It stuck with me. My heart for coaching led me to continue with baseball and volleyball instruction.
As I aged, I realized I needed to improve my own training and nutrition, as well as my mindset. I pursued more training in all areas and set a vision to share what I’d learned in the process. When I learned that more than 72% of American adults were overweight and 46% obese, my motivation drove me to help.
