Michael Hurley Jr.
During my career I have had the opportunity to work and travel with professional athletes, collegiate, high school sports, orthopedic rehab, pre/post natal, senior programs, and TV personalities. I have worked with over 3,000 (thousand) members and clients assessing there needs and developing their programs as well as teaching a specialty group fitness class. I have obtained 7 different national certifications which I believe each certification is only as good as one's practical knowledge. I have also successfully opened 4 business’ 3 of which were new health/fitness facilities that needed individualize structure and systems developed within their personal training department, and group fitness programs. In addition to this I worked on developing sales, customer service, and membership retention skills with all employees. My approach is to provide the best training structure that will yield maximal results.
