Our guest today is Michael, a man whose path to success is as unique as it is inspiring. Despite not graduating high school, he earned his GED through his early work as a carpenter and his dedication to fitness. After a brief stint in college and a career as a firefighter/EMT, he felt a strong pull towards the fitness industry. This led him to complete a 5-month Personal Training course after moving across the country. Starting as a trainer in Indianapolis, he eventually rose to the position of a successful Personal Training manager.

In 2013, he opened his first studio, expanding to 5 locations in 5 years. He then ventured into consulting, coaching over 60 business owners. In 2019, he sold his first company to pursue a new fitness venture in Tampa, FL, with his wife. Michael shares free content through podcasts, social media, and writing, now focusing on coaching individuals for business, career, and life growth with tailored strategic plans.
