Mike Hurley has been a personal trainer for 30 years. His certifications include ACSM, NSPA, EFTI, ISMA, AAAI, AFPA. Mike has trained tv celebrities, professional athletes, college all-americans, ncaa champions, high school and youth development. However his greatest fulfillment comes from training the person who just wants and needs to change the quality of their life. “Every one is an in some shape or form. But his greatest satisfaction comes from training men and women who want and need a change in their lives.
Mike forges strong relationships with his clients because of the amount of time he spends with them and the attention each one deserves.
"I make commitments to my clients. And with those commitments comes a tremendous amount of trust. These people are confiding in me to help them better their lives. That's a huge responsibility and something I take very seriously."
"My relationship with a client doesn't start and end with the actual workout.I make myself easily available for any questions my clients may have pertaining to their health and fitness they know they can reach me at anytime of the day through text messages or phone calls.
Youth Sports Development:
Today's youths are asked to play a specific sport without any formal training. No development of core skills such as, balance & stability, strengthening & conditioning, speed & agility, injury prevention training, overall functional development. The are given a ball and told lets play and have fun which is all well and good, until these kids are getting injured now more then ever! Most kids at lacking in basic motor skills, and just because you may see you child running down the field doesn't mean they have the skill set to move properly beyond that straight line. Are their joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles strong enough to handle quick bursts, stop and go movement, change of direction without possible injury and if so how much stress can they withstand before an injury may occur.
I will help each athlete to develop their bodies to withstand such stressors and well as progress them to reach a much HIGHER lever of play. I have gotten kids who don't start on their high school teams to start and excel. Taking a high school kid to the next level by now playing in college with scholarship offers. Progressing college athletes to play professionally. What is your goal, what is you dreams and ambitions??
I Will Get You There!!!!
During my career I have had the opportunity to work and travel with professional athletes, collegiate, high school and youth sports, orthopedic rehab, pre-postnatal, senior programs, and TV personalities. I have worked with over 5500 members and clients assessing their needs and developing their programs as well as teaching specialty group fitness classes. I have obtained over 7 different national certifications which I believe each certification is only as good as one’s practical knowledge. I have also successfully opened 4 businesses successfully that needed individual structure and systems developed within their personal training department and group fitness program. In addition to this I’ve also helped develop sales, customer service, and membership retention skills with all employees. I have spoken in front of large groups to motivate and generate more revenue. My approach is to provide the best training structure that will yield maximum results for any circumstances.
