Meet Mike, Your Fitness Coach

 (Unofficial Biography)

 

Michael Medvig

Would you believe that this guy, covered in mud and jumping over a fire pit was once a weakling who got pushed around in school?

( By the way, as your coach I will not make you jump in a mud bath or jump over fire. This is just stuff I do in my spare time:))

True story. At 15:

  • I was 6’0″ and 140 pounds.
  • Had severe asthma.
  • Couldn’t do a regular push-up.
  • Failed every President’s fitness test in school.
  • Couldn’t run a lap around a track.

Until I decided to go against the Doctor’s advice and do something about it. This is what you call an epiphany.

Epiphany #1

I was tall, weak and miserable with bad self-esteem. If I didn’t do anything about it, this would be my life.

So I did something about it and it changed my life.

Fast forward to kids, corporate job, mortgage and big screen t.v’s.

Life was hectic but comfy. I had a comfy chair to enjoy my big screen tv, the pantry had cookies and candy for the kids and I was now getting fat. I guess you could call it “Dad” fat. I didn’t give birth to our kids but it was starting to look like I did. Not good.

Epiphany number #2

The things I did to get in shape back in high school didn’t work now. I had less time and less energy. To get back in shape I would have to figure out how to fit working out and running in with my lifestyle as an adult.

And I did.

So if you go over to my other website, www.bigmanruns.com, you will see what I am doing at age 52.

  • Spartan races
  • Half-Marathons
  • Trail Runs

I am not bragging about this stuff, in fact, I make it a point to let people know I am not the fastest guy out there.

To stay in the game I have had to become very smart in my training and recovery and this is what I can teach you.

But the fact is that I am out there doing what I want to do.

What are your goals?

  • Fit into pants you haven’t worn in 5 years?
  • Play a round of golf without back pain?
  • Carry groceries into the house in one trip?

Whatever your goals are, they are good ones and I want to help you get there.

So remember this.

Never let other people define you.

And never let people tell you what you can and can’t do.
