Mike first found CrossFit back in 2010 while stationed aboard Kings Bay Naval Base, GA. After a grueling 5 week martial arts course, Mike realized he had to get stronger. A friend brought him to CrossFit Camden off base, and he was hooked. Mike has spent most of his time focusing on the olympic lifts, and has trained with national champions such as Jon North and Jared Enderton.
As an anatomy buff, Mike has always been fascinated by the mechanics of the human body. This passion led him to become a licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in Active Release Technique. A.R.T. is a form of deep tissue manipulation used to treat problems with soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. A.R.T. can be utilized for on the spot corrections, including treatment and preventative care. This comes in handy when dealing with a tight muscle during a CrossFit class or Personal Training session.
