Hi, I am Personal Trainer Michael. I was born in Belgium and I moved to Los Angeles in 1994. I worked as a Fitness Model for many years while I became a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer. I have been a trainer for over 15 years and have changed many people's lives and bodies by making them stronger with the safest method in the shortest amount of time while making them look better.
Why hire me? The main reason is because you get better and faster results than doing it alone with proven methods that are safe and effective. And don't forget accountability.
Education and Experience
I have over 15 years of experience in fitness training with testimonials to prove my results and I am a member of AceFitness® and IdeaFit®. I also took CPR, First-Aid, and AED classes.
I have Fitness and Wellness Insurance. Only professional personal trainers are able to get insurance for their clients. Many trainers do not have insurance.
I have a Los Angeles City Professional Business License. All professionals doing business in Los Angeles need a Business License by law. I hold an active Business License and dba Personal Trainer Michael.
I will provide you undivided attention at all times during your session. I won’t be eating, chatting on the phone, or with other people, and I will not be text-messaging during your session, I will only focus on you. I will stay focused on the task ensuring that you are performing the exercises safely and correctly.
I keep a record
I will keep a record of all your sessions and your progress, so I know where you are doing well and where you need to improve.
I am not a boring trainer like some trainers out there. I am a fun and happy person with a great personality and I am a great listener as well, so I will pay attention to what you have to say and what your goals are. I can customize your workouts for your personal needs. I am always happy and in a great mood and ready to motivate you with a positive attitude. I am a nice, friendly and outgoing guy, who always gets the work done with a smile!
The results you will achieve with me are much greater than doing it alone, and I will keep you on track and motivated, which will definitely guarantee that you reach your goals much faster.
I LOVE what I do
I love what I do and I love to get results. Making you feel better, look better and reach your goals is my passion.
I CARE (Clients Are Really Everything). I am not just another trainer, I do want to help you reach your goals and I do care about your results (see testimonial from Cory Everson). My rates are fair and I try to make it affordable for everyone who is serious about their health. Once you are a client of mine, contact me any time regarding your workouts, eating choices, lifestyle changes, goals ... I will return your phone calls, e-mails and text messages promptly.
I am always on time
Being late shows a lack of respect. I always leave early, so I can be on time. Also I don't overbook myself.
I stay educated
I keep on learning, because things are constantly changing and researchers are uncovering new information every day. I go to conferences and workshops. I read lots of fitness and health books. I talk with doctors and I have many clients who are doctors.
I don't sell stuff
I never sell or push any supplements on my clients. I may recommend supplements that work for me and my clients and that are beneficial to your workouts. BUT I will never sell you any thing or make you buy any supplements from any company.
