“I provide training that fits your lifestyle!” These are the words that describe Michael Villareal’s goal in providing the best personal training possible. “I want everyone that comes in the doors of our gym to say at the end of their workout, ‘I can’t wait to come back!’”
Michael has been involved in athletics almost his entire life. Growing up in Southern California provided a climate of different sports in which Michael took part of. Soccer, Basketball, Football, Swimming, Golf, Baseball & Softball … if it was considered a sport, Michael played it. Michael was involved in sports all throughout high school and continued playing basketball and football while attending the University of Southern California.
Michael began seriously working out about 10 years ago just to try and put on size. “I’m a hard-gainer; it has always been tough for me to put muscle on. Once I started reading and studying about the body, I experimented with different routines and techniques in order to make my body grow.” Michael also realized that if he could transform his own physique maybe he could help others as well. Michael passed his personal training exam and is now a Certified Personal Trainer through N.E.S.T.A., the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association, a world-wide recognized leader in the personal training field.
Michael trains clients of all ages and with different fitness goals, from beginners looking to get in shape and improve their overall wellness to advanced athletes and mixed martial arts fighters preparing to advance to the next level. He specializes in sport-specific training and trains high school and college level athletes. He also teaches boot camp classes, cardio kickboxing classes and plyometrics. He is experienced in Muy Thai Kickboxing, MMA and holds a purple belt in Lima Lama under Master Richard Nunez.
“The satisfaction I get when I see one of my clients breakthrough a plateau, whether it’s a new maximum lift or another inch off their mid-section is unbelievable.” Michael views his job as guiding his clients along their own personal fitness path. “I don’t work for the gym … I work for my client. Together, we will be able to achieve all of your fitness goals.”
