Mike’s journey with physical fitness began in college 28 years ago when he broke his leg playing Rugby. He soon realized the importance of proper rehabilitation and Corrective exercise to build functional strength and prevent future injuries. Mike quickly embraced the lifestyle and the health benefits exercising gave him, not just from a physical standpoint, but from a wellness standpoint as well. Shortly after, Mike became certified as a Personal Trainer and was on staff with LA Fitness for several years where a master trainer introduced him to a whole new approach of functional and core training. While attending school for his Masters in Exercise Science and rehabilitation, Mike had the opportunity to work for a Medical Exercise company in Duluth, Georgia, where he learned from the best in the business in the way of Medical and Corrective Exercise. Several years later Mike decided to open his own mobile personal training business training clients in their homes, and his company, New Strength Dynamics was formed. Finally, with an increasingly busy client schedule, Mike decided to move to the next level and add a physical location in Johns Creek, Georgia, now called Medical Fitness and Wellness Group, and has been in operation since 2014. It is now a full-service wellness center encompassing a Full-time Chiropractor, Massage Therapist, and a part-time Physical Therapist.
