Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Stella Fitness KNOWS you are tired of waiting around to see change. We know that you are AWESOME in some areas of your life and Stella Fitness works to unleash that awesomeness to the way you take care of your body. We work as guides. Not dictators, only experts in what we do. We know that YOU have the ability to change for the better. You may need a little organization, accountability, motivation or education to get into a routine but that's what we are here for! Our training staff has the highest level of certification available, constantly renewing old certifications and diving into new practices. We take the guesswork out of fat loss, muscle gain and getting you results. ​Appropriate Resistance Training: Resistance training forms the cornerstone of any good exercise program. We employ the use of weight training in the forms of dumbbells, barbells, balls, bands, kettlebells and more in our resistance training routines, but not always. It depends entirely on your goals, preferences, and what we learn in our assessment. Many of our introductory programs are based mainly on bodyweight exercises and dynamic stretching. But the bottom line is: muscle is the body’s fat burning engine! Appropriate resistance training helps build and maintain that engine. ​ Corrective/Preventative Training: You wouldn’t drive your car cross-country with the parking break on, would you? When you start an exercise program with minor aches, pains and muscle imbalances, it’s a lot like doing just that! But it you release that break before you start the journey, you will reach your destination faster, safer and healthier. This correction and prevention component of training will address any problem areas you many have, thus “releasing the brake.” If you don’t have problem areas, we will focus on regions of the body prone to injury, with an emphasis on prevention. ​ Appropriate Cardiovascular Exercise: Only the correct amount of cardio work at the correct intensity will work for your goals. Doing the wrong type, at the wrong time at the wrong intensity may be very inefficient at reaching your goal. ​ Professional Assistance and Scientific Manipulation of the above: No program works for everyone and no program will work forever. As your body changes, so too must your program change. We will help to modify your plan as your body changes and adapts so you continue to see optimal results. ​ General Nutrition Guidelines: We offer tailored nutrition plans through our consultations based on whole food nutrition. If you want results, your eating habits must support that goal. I love people, I love seeing goals met and I love achieving the impossible. I love seeing people transition their mindset to a mindset of growth. To a point where they are dripping sweat, asking for more. Conversely, there is nothing that touches me more than seeing hard work despite working through setbacks. From the perspective of motivating and pushing people to improve, I love hearing the positive impact working with me has had... 'Added 20 lbs of muscle mass in 5.5 months. Transitioned from difficulty in squeezing out lunges to developing / refining olympic lifting technique. Physical instability morphing into flexibility and strength.' 'I was able to understand the best way to strengthen my body without risking further injury to my shoulder. I was especially encouraged by the gradual increase in my weight lifting ability. I never imagined I would be able to lift as much as I did. He created a plan involving moderately challenging workouts that had amazing results for me.' 'I can tell you from personal experience Mike is the best trainer I've ever seen. I have watched him help people lose weight and work with a variety of ages ranging from 14-94. Each person he approached he did as if they were family'

Mike has been an awesome personal trainer for me and my husband! He always had great workouts planned specifically for us and I loved that we could switch up the meeting location from the park, a private gym, his home gym, and even our own backyard. Mike is super nice and it's been fun to work with him!

I hired Mike for my husband who hasn’t worked out in years. He has gotten him in a program he is super excited about and completely motivated. It’s changed his whole approach to life. Mike is personable, educated and experienced with fitness and training, and has a healthy whole life approach that is sustainable and transforming.

Working with Mike is the best decision I’ve made this year. I would recommend working with him to any of my friends without hesitation. He doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach and that is one of the best things about the experience—he takes the time to get to know you and your goals, and he makes the experience extremely personalized. Mike is easy to get along with, fun to talk to, and fun to be around, which makes the experience so much more enjoyable. At the heart of the experience, I’m also getting the knowledge and the results I want. If I had to put my review into two words, it would be this: Hire him.

Mike has been a SUPER GREAT trainer. He’s very responsive and flexible and really strives to understand your personal goals so he can help you reach them with personalized programming and coaching. I am personally doing Strength Training as well as general nutrition and conditioning, but I’m sure Mike can help you with whatever your fitness goals are. Get after it!

Mike is an excellent trainer. He is very sound technically - designs effective work outs to help achieve fitness goals. I reached out to mike about shoulder pain I was having in yoga poses like downward facing dog. Mike was able to help immediately by pointing out posture corrections and making me do exercises to make my shoulder stronger. Way more important is Mike's empathy. I am new to town - Mike included me on a hike with his group and offered help with regular life stuff. I am super happy with Mike and very grateful.
