It was 2003. Michael, an 18-year-old martial arts practitioner, was involved in a serious car accident that left him with a severe back injury. His recovery was slow, too slow in his opinion. Wanting to take back control over his life and health he started researching his options. Strength training sounded like a good idea. It was. It turned out to be a match made in heaven. Michael did more than ‘just’ recover from his injuries; he transformed himself from a 54 kg toothpick to 95+ kilograms of lean, calm and sympathetic muscle.
Michael’s medicine became his passion. Since his recovery and transformation he developed a fascination for the human body, movement and training. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Marketing & Management, a variety of certifications in fitness, weight lifting, nutrition and soon started for his own in Groningen and Arnhem. Michael relies on an impressive knowledge base, coming from relevant certification, additional self-study and a lot of personal experience as a high performing strength athlete who has spend many hours in the weight room.
Michael is a kind, patient professional who will guide you towards a stronger and better functioning body. Needless to say he specializes in muscle gain and fat loss but is also knowledgeable about injury recovery and back problems. And for those who want to look amazing in the mirror and on the beach? For them too training with Michael is a wise decision.
