I strongly recommend Mike Groth as a personal trainer. I had some severe neck pain due to bulging spinal discs and chronic muscle tension and Mike put together a series of exercises that helped me out tremendously. He is clearly a very intelligent man who knows what he's doing. He's enthusiastic and very motivated to help you with your individual needs. A++Mar 26, 2011

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I'm working with a client, the most important thing that I want the client to realize is that fitness is only one aspect of overall health. While it is an important one, too often individuals ignore or don't give much attention to other vital aspects of health that tend to be the primary drivers behind why they cannot achieve their result. Before the onset of training with a new client, I take an extensive inventory of the health history of the client, going over all musculoskeletal, hormonal, neuromuscular, and digestive issues that have been/are currently present. We take a look at nutrition and sleep habits, movement habits, and relationships that are in the clients life. From there, we go over an initial movement screen, looking at the strength and mobility at each segment of the body, from the toes to the nose. Current research is very clear that the body operates in a chain reaction. With this in mind, it necessitates the need to assess the ENTIRE body for assymetries and muscle weaknesses. The outcomes of the movement screen provides the blue print for the program design of the client, blending the wants of the client with the needs of their body, with the health and well being of the client always at the forefront.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 10 years of in the trenches experience working with clients. In addition, I graduated from the University of Texas Masters program in Kinesiology. During this time, I had the good fortune of working with the UT Men's and Women's Basketball program for 2 years. After getting my Masters, I became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA, and Corrective Exercise Specialist through the NASM, PTA Global Certification and Advanced Certification back in 2011 and 2012. More recently, I have become very interested with Chain Reaction Biomechanics and the principles, strategies, and techniques of the Gray Institute. I became Certified in Applied Functional Science, and then, a Fellow of Applied Functional Science through a 40 week mentorship program. At the conclusion of this mentorship, I also became certified in Functional Manual Reaction. Being certified in FMR allows me the ability to use hands-on technique to achieve the right muscle motion and joint reactions that are authentic to the human, to help clients get out of pain, move better, and perform better.
