ABOUT MIKE WELCH
ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Coach
As a 34 year old adult who had just been laid off from my job I found myself obese, miserable and sick. I felt terrible and I was addicted to both junk food and cigarettes. I decided to do something about it so I began lifting weight and signing up for obstacle course races. I loved the way I felt so I decided to change my life by going back to school to learn about Exercise and Movement Science. After a 2 year program I started training at a an elite Private Studio called "Genuine Fitness" And I've made my passion my livelihood.
6 years later, I'm in the best shape of my life and helping other people to achieve their dream physiques as well!
When you train with me, we use full body and multi-joint movement to give you the best bang for your buck in the shortest time. We use powerlifting with squats, deadlifts and bench pressing to build strong, lean muscle. We use kettlebells and high intensity training to condition you and strip away fat. We do mobility work and injury prevention techniques to keep you healthy and safe.
Contact me to schedule a consultation! I do live consultations at Strength Lab, Eugene, a private personal training studio at 448 West 3rd Ave, Eugene, Oregon. I offer online consultations through Skype and Google Hangouts and I can even help you by phone.
In addition to expert strength training and healthy fat loss, I specialize in kettlebell training, bodybuilding, figure and bikini competition prep, powerlifting, barefoot/minimalist running, adventure racing and daily functional fitness that will empower you to meet any challenge!
I've lost over 80 lbs and completely transformed my body. I've kept the weight off for years and continue to improve every day. I will use my expert knowledge and experience to help you achieve results like mine!
