Health is more than a fad or a temporary diet. Health and fitness are about changing your lifestyle, becoming healthy, being happy, and enjoying life. We all know that change is hard for us, but I am here to guide you along the way! I’ve gone through my own changes and transformations, yet the most gratifying part has been helping my family, my friends, and anyone trying to reach their goals. I used to be a wrestler in high school and I learned that hard work and dedication can take you far. I have been a student of Mixed Martial Arts (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kick Boxing, and Wrestling) for about 3 years, where I have grown to be patient and passionately determined. As a physical therapy intern, I also have the knowledge to train within injury parameters, including sport injuries. These skills will be of great value as I help you achieve your specific goals; whether it is losing a few pounds, toning, or increasing your overall health - I have a plan for you! I have specialties in both youth and senior fitness, allowing me to help your entire family with specific routines tailored to everyone’s needs.

    Michale Valdes is an awesome personal trainer. We've trained together for years and he's always found a way to push me beyond the limits which I continuously set for myself. He knows just what to say to keep pushing you and make you feel the absolute best that you can possibly feel. He's helped me bring up my self confidence not only physically but mentally as well. He put me through so rigorous training which i never thought that I could compete. Thank you mike!

    I trained with Mike Valdes personal trainer twice a week for about 3 months. He helped me with nutrition and strength training. I am a personal who has lower lumbar problems "herniated disks" and he helped me strengthen my back which helped my lifestyle be more comfortable on a daily basis. Some of the training we did was challenging for me but he always helped me and encouraged me to complete our training. I thank him so much for it as some of what he wanted me to do I felt I could not do due to my injury. I overcame that fear of getting hurt and now I have used his training to my benefit at the gym. When he told me he was moving on I was really sad as I got use to his training and did not want no one else. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Michael Valdes has been a great personal trainer. I recently broke my patella (knee-cap) and had to go through some rigorous therapy to regain strength and mobility, and Michael has been exemplary in helping me regain my full mobility and is currently in progress of helping me regain my strength. He is patient but firm and is exactly what I needed to get back on track.

    My fitness goals were: weight loss, firming & toning, flexibility, and nutrition. Michael has really helped me to reach my goals. I have never looked or felt this healthy before and I have him to thank for that. I have a lower back pain problem and he has been able to work around it, which is great! He also has his own personal space for his clients. I would definitely recommend Michael to anybody! :)
