You would be stunned if you knew how much of your coaching I retained! What you taught me is life altering because you are so good at what you do.  I think it was a brilliant route for us to have trained like we did - a full court press. I am so grateful that you gave me that time out of your busy schedule.

I can definitely see that physical transformation can be the gateway to empowerment in all areas. I cannot even believe what has happened to me on the tennis court! I am so strong and confident and can do things I could never do before. No one knows why I am suddenly playing so much better, but I do!  I love feeling strong. I actually look forward to my workouts at the gym, which I even do before tennis on the days I play tennis.

We all know the famous Ghandi quote, "Be the change you want to see in the world," but, Michael, you are one of the few people I have met who really lives that and walks your talk. I am deeply inspired .Thank you for everything.   Love Joy 2016

Training with Michael is a true experience every session. Michael has this uncanny intuitive sense in which he knows exactly how a client is feeling prior to each session, and he adjusts the workout based upon what he feels you need on any given day. His workouts are always grueling and progressive, however, he also knows how to weave into the training session light psychotherapy.  It’s like a therapy session within a workout. I always come away feeling more positive and connected to self and purpose in life.                      Melissa 2015

Michael thank you so much for putting me on the right path. When I started working with Michael I was sedentary, smoking, overweight and feeling listless, lethargic and just sort of getting through life.  In just 9 short months with Michael I quite smoking, dropped 25 lbs of excess fat, replaced it with lean muscle mass and had more energy then I knew what to do with. Today, I run 5 miles, 3 x per week, train in the gym at least 3 x per week, eat right……but most importantly I feel great! My productivity on a daily basis is 300 times what it was with less energy expenditure. You set the course I’m forever grateful!!! 1-year no smoking.    Jon Van Doge 2014-2015

Before training with Michael I was never really sure if what I was doing in the gym was right or whether or not my diet was adequate.  WithMichael’s fitness and nutrition assessment and program, along with his guidance, I can now go to the gym with the confidence of knowing that the program I am working is the right program for me.  I have learned so much and have lost 22lbs in 8 weeks.   I feel better then ever.  His fitness expertise and routines are phenomenal.     Susan Jenkins, Ohio 2014

I never thought I could hire a fitness trainer and expect results like what Michael achieved.  With Michael’s constant motivation and fitness program I have seen amazing results. I can now fit into a size 3 which I haven’t worn for over 6-years.  I have more energy than I know what to do with and the nutrition plan is easy to follow andto stick to.   Tricia Morgan, Oregon 2013

I’ve always had a hard time putting on muscle mass.  Michael's muscle building program kicked my butt and added 15-pounds of lean muscle in less than 6-weeks.  He completely changed my diet and work out regime.  Michael is definitely the man when it comes to fitness!  Jay Samuel’s,  Pittsburgh 2013

"In my work with cancer survivors who engage in exercise, I have learned perhaps the most profound lesson as an instructor- that conditioning is not just for running faster or lifting more. It can take us into ourselves; challenge us to regain our health, to endure pain, to achieve our goals. Michael’s philosophy on exercise and healing has more application to the average person than any fitness gimmick or expensive running shoe. It is what we all really look for in fitness, to know ourselves better and to constantly improve ourselves. Congratulations to you, Michael for advancing fitness to the next logical level."  Erik P. Durak, MSc, Director of Cancer Wellness, President-Medical Health & Fitness

"Michael George’s approach to fitness and transforming lives is phenomenally effective.

I refer my patients to Michael because I am completely confident that he will help them attain and surpass their health and fitness goals, while improving their quality of life. Michael’s book "Body Express Makeover" will forever change the way the world approaches fitness and health."  Dr. Tony Perrone, Ph.D., author of "The Body Fat Breakthrough", Celebrity Nutritionist

"More and more medical science is making it clear that our Society’s greatest risk to physical wellness is our inactivity. We now know that improvements in fitness reduce the risk of almost every chronic disease of the twenty-first century. However, despite this evidence, and despite our best intentions and New Year’s resolutions to the contrary, our society is more obese and less fit than ever before. Michael's integrated mind-body approach to fitness and spiritual health is EXACTLY what’s needed. His program acknowledges the power of small improvements in daily discipline to not only create a healthy body, but a more fit mind and a happier life as well. Michael works with the complete mind-body-spirit connection, thus the whole body, to help clients overcome fears and obstacles on their way to a better life. I truly feel Michael’s book "Body Express Makeover" will open the door to what modern fitness is all about."     Dr. Marcus Elliott, Fitness Trainer at the Olympic Training Center since 1989, Research Consultant to the NFL
