A bit about Michael

Michael has always had a passion for sport. Through primary school he started playing AFL and continued to do so until the age of 20 when he tore his ACL. This is what ignited his passion for strength and conditioning and injury rehabilitation.

He entered the industry in 2015 and over the next few years did a number of internships to boost his knowledge base. In 2017, he took the plunge and started running his own business out of a big box gym and he soon became one of the busiest trainers in the gym. He coached athletes of all descriptions and also started a women’s strength and conditioning program for the general population.

In 2018, Michael got a role as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Bundoora United Football Club. Here he worked with the youth teams and gained valuable experience working with team sports, not just individuals in private practise.

His goal is to push the agenda of strength and conditioning for youth and junior athletes. He is adamant on giving kids the longevity in sport they deserve.
