About Michael

I started training at 14 years old, back east in Connecticut. After playing high school football, I decided to go into body building. I was 18 years old at the time. As an athlete and a football player, I loved the feeling of being in shape! This kind of motivation inspired me to go into body building. I started competing at 20 years old and won my first show in Waterbury Connecticut. Once I understood the commitment and what it takes to be a champion in this kind of training lifestyle, I was hooked and moved out to sunny California to continue this passion of mine. In California, Golds Gym (The Mecca of Body Building and Fitness) became my second home. I had been training there since 1986 and trained alongside, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno, and all other champion body builders at that time. I've competed in 10 shows and placed in the top 5 in a few of them. I've been retired from body building since 1991 and I have built my clientele since then! Currently, I mostly train at Golds Gym however I do train people in corporate offices and in homes. I live in West LA, in an apartment building that I manage.
