about michael

Hi, I am Michael.

I am a Human Performance Energy Coach. For the past ten years I have developed a deep curiosity into expanding human potential. I have spent eight years as a strength and conditioning coach for hundreds of elite level athletes. From 2016-2019 I worked with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

While working to master a holistic lens in human performance, I am consistently drawn to the mind and its importance on unlocking inner potential. My work is a combination of mindset, energy coaching, embodiment tools & practices, Eastern philosophy, and flow state psychology. I am a With Heart Certified Energy Coach.

I received my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in strength and conditioning at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. While earning a dual Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology and Sports Nutrition at the University of Miami I also worked as a graduate assistant strength coach. Subsequently, I began a four-year journey as a strength and conditioning coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks. During my time in baseball, I became a licensed massage therapist graduating from Cortiva Institute in Scottsdale, AZ.

“Mike is one of the most dedicated, passionate, and highly driven men I know. He is committed to his work, his life and is eager to improve lives around him. Mike has made an impact in my life that I’ll never forget nor lose inside. He became a brother of mine since the day we crossed paths in Missoula, Montana in 2016. Remember you’re in control of your own destiny as we all are AWARE! Your success has already happened, your success is already within that YOU created.”
