Mike grew up in a rural area that led to constant involvement in sports and outdoor activity including baseball, soccer, wrestling, swimming, and biking. He discovered CrossFit in 2013 and quickly embraced the functional fitness world, later growing to compete and coach. The community’s constant desire to improve combined with its intense training and fun was a convincing fit.
Mike joined Balance in 2016 as a Fitness & Membership Consultant for the Thomas Circle gym before moving to help manage the Foggy Bottom gym. He thoroughly enjoys helping others find that same great fitness fit for their own lives that he once found. Mike believes that strength and mobility are keys to living a fulfilling life and making fitness a priority will amplify life outside the gym, including home and work.
When not in the gym, you’ll often find him behind a camera lens, golfing, playing outdoors with his dogs, reminiscing about the glory days of his early tee-ball career, and waiting for George R.R. Martin to finish writing.
