Michael has been a constantly varied human all his life, with adventures in gymnastics, dance, wrestling, weightlifting, and distance running. Michael became a Crossfitter when a friend caught him power cleaning in his college weight room and explained that he could lift barbells and walk on his hands in the same workout. That was 2009.
Now, Michael is a full time coach, assistant programmer, and social media coordinator for CFNYC. Outside of the box Michael is the lead anchor for Q-Live Sports, a broadcasting company that hosts live Crossfit, Grid, and functional fitness events.
Michael trains athletes privately at both Flatiron and UWS locations. He specializes in gymnastics and olympic weightlifting for Crossfit, as well as training those taking their first steps into functional fitness. Michael also programs for and trains athletes interested in weight loss and body composition goals who may not have a background in sports and exercise.
