"When I first met Mike I had been dealing with chronic back pain for most of my teens into my twenties. Almost all activity would trigger it, so I could not enjoy being active without paying some serious physical consequences. Over the years I had spent a lot of money and time and energy trying to fix this problem: doctors, physiotherapists, body workers, other personal trainers, you name it. I'm an actor, so my body is my life, yet I was constantly inhibited by pain with anything remotely physical. Thanks to Mike, all this changed. With his guidance and care I now have been completely pain free for over three months now. His vast knowledge of how the mind & body works combined with his unrelenting optimism made wellness seem possible for the first time. I can now move completely fearless of pain. I'm running, lifting, swimming, dancing more than I ever have in my life. I'm essentially living life like a normal twenty-something. I recommend Mike to anyone."
"I have worked with Mike for a few months, he immediately understood my needs and built a program around achieving my goals, I am impressed with Mike because he focuses on the individual needs of the person and has a genuine interest in them achieving what they want, Mike always pushes to get more from me in the work out and I know I will achieve my goals by continuing to work with Mike"
"Mike Howard has been my personal trainer for some time now. Of all the personal trainers I have had in the past, Mike ranks #1 by a long way. His knowledge (nutritional as well as physical fitness) is 2nd to none. I especially look forward to his Health Bulletins which are sent out regularly and I have shared this valuable information with family and friends.
His respectful and encouraging manner has stimulated me to gradually improve my level of physical fitness as well as my general health far beyond what I thought possible. I have recommended Mike’s services to others and they have been very satisfied as well. I will continue to have Mike as my personal trainer for many more years to come."
“I have been training with Mike since 2001. When I first started I weighed 224 lbs, was out of shape, had terrible headaches and debilitating lower back pain. I now weigh 200 lbs, have tons of energy, never have headaches, and back pain is a thing of the past. In fact, for my last medical check-up for insurance, I was granted a rare “platinum” health status which dropped my premiums significantly!”
"Mike is a great partner and motivator in the battle to regain fitness and lose weight. Working out with him twice a week for 4 months, I lost 23 pounds. I feel great!"
"I have known Mike for 5 years, and during all this time he has been my trainer. I am very satisfied with his professional guidance in improving my fitness. I am an older person and it is vital for older people to have fitness training to retain their physical health, otherwise their abilities can rapidly deteriorate. Mike is friendly and very knowledgeable and it is great to have someone who knows exactly what exercises will benefit me and how many repetitions of them I should do. Since training with Mike, I have lost almost 20 lbs. of body fat and my strength has increased remarkably (up to a fivefold increase in certain exercises!). I am also more flexible and able to move about with greater ease. I would recommend Mike to anyone who needs a professional trainer (and who doesn’t?)."
"Mike was a tremendous help to me last year when I needed to lose about 10 pounds in a short period of time. He designed a customized program to suit my needs, dietary preferences and abilities. He set up weekly check-ins to ensure accountability, and was immensely supportive throughout. In the end, I succeeded in achieving my goals, reaching my lowest weight since having the kids. Thanks Mike!!"
"We hired Mike to add some variety and intensity to the exercise my 6 year-old son was getting through regular activities. In the very first session Mike had infused our child with great enthusiasm for his type of active workout. Mike is fun, engaging and most importantly, effective."
"Having Mike helping me out has changed my life forever. I went from laying on the couch all day playing video games with no athletic ability at all, to actually playing on the football field. While working with Mike I have dropped 62 pounds of fat. I can do things now that I never thought I could do in my life. I am even training to do the sun run this year."
"I just recently finished my MBA and, because of school, had gained 20 pounds. I also had a few injuries sustained during various sports due to my being out of shape. Mike has an excellent ability to create a workout around my injuries while also helping me to stay focused both inside and outside of the gym. I really enjoy working out with Mike and the personal sense of satisfaction I get from improving myself. Thanks so much Mike!"
