Michael is the Founder and Chief Exercise Officer of PURE PHYSIQUE and was voted Westchester's "Best Personal Trainer". He is also President of the International Association of Resistance Trainers (IART), a personal training certification and advanced exercise education company and a Co-founder of the DFAC (Drug Free Athletes Coalition). Additionally, he is an international author, speaker, and a professional natural bodybuilder.
Michael's passion for resistance training began with a childhood fascination with the strength and muscle development of comic book heroes like Superman, Batman, and The HULK to name a few. Since he wasn't born a Superhero he set out to learn how muscle and strength is developed. This pursuit which began as a young kid continues today as he applies the science of exercise in designing the innovative training programs at PURE PHYSIQUE.
