What to Expect
I train "from the inside out", meaning I bring the client into better alignment, work on imbalances and on the muscles which stabilize the core including hips and shoulders. I also train "from the bottom up", creating a stable base with good balance. Much like building a house, everything begins with a strong foundation. These methods help my clients achieve their personal fitness goals more quickly, efficiently, and most important...safely!
The enjoyment and attention to detail of each work out will only be outmeasured by the results you are able to achieve.
Client Success Story
"When I first began training with Shane, I kept it a secret from all my family and friends. I didn't want anyone to know in case I failed. Now I shout it from the rooftops! Working with Shane is one of the best decisions I ever made. He is friendly, humorous, encouraging, and patient. He helped me set goals and map out a plan for success. Four months into my program, I lost over 30 lbs, dropped 3 dress sizes and gained a world of confidence. Confidence is power! I feel much better about myself and am encouraged that I can and will reach my goals." Carrie LeBlanc

Personable and professional. Knowledgeable and focused. Tell him your goal and be realistic about your abilities to make the most out of your sessions. He is very easy to work with.
I have trained with Shane and he's an awesome trainer. Shane is a very patient trainer with all of his clients. I really enjoyed the resistance band training sessions that we often completed. Shane has a passion for helping you reach your weight loss goals, or just being healthy.
Recently started training with Shane and I am so pleased with his training style. He has tailored a regiment specifically for me and my fitness goals. I can definitely feel the areas I want to pin point being worked! He is also very understanding of crazy work schedules and overall life. I love his flexibility with scheduling and he still pushes you to make sure you are fitting in your workouts when you can. Personality wise he is awesome and motivates me positively even on my most sluggish days.
Shane is a consummate professional whose experience will put you at ease during your first encounter. With the perfect balance of patience and encouragement he elegantly assists clients to grow at their own rate. If you are looking for a trainer with a great attitude and a marvelous sense of humor, look no further.
I have had many one hour sessions with Shane Michael. They were the most entertaining, informative, and energizing hours of my life. His attention to detail, his caring attitude, his knowledge of physiology, and his capacity for fun all combine for an effective, efficient, and amazing workout.
Shane's approach to training his clients is purposeful and exact. He takes the time to analyze his client's needs, limitations and goals, and then carefully crafts a plan that will motivate his clients to succeed. His attention to detail allows him to extract the best from his clients within the first few sessions, and his thoughtful approach and personality make him a great choice for personal training. I have had the pleasure of training with Shane over the years, and he has always met and exceeded my expectations for a personal trainer. I have always been impressed by his experience and longevity in the business, and he brings that expertise to every client in every training session.
Shane was very professional. With some physical limitations, I needed a trainer who would be very careful with me. Shane was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him for careful personal training especially for people in a recovery process.
Great trainer! Makes working out fun!
Awesome and excellent workouts tailored to the individual's needs!
