2017 & 2018 National Fitness Awards

National fitness awards

Mike has won the Gym Based Personal Trainer of the Year twice and is the only personal trainer who has retained the title over consecutive years (2017 and 2018). This award acknowledged the importance of Mike’s role as a personal trainer within his own gym and for the fitness industry as a whole.

After winning 2017 personal trainer of the year, Mike could easily have assumed he had done it all and cruised along enjoying his award winning status but far from it. He used that moment as a spring board and achieved amazing results this year and set the bar for his industry peers.
