“I have been working out with Michael Fish for almost 12 years. He is very professional and knows the human body and how it works. He has helped me overcome hip replacements and several falls. My entire body is stronger because of the exercises he does with me. He also works with my husband who has had 2 strokes and I truly think his work with him has kept him alive.”

Alyse Sprintz , Age 80

Golfer, Gardener, Business owner.

“I have worked with Michael for 5 years and highly recommend him. Prior to hiring Michael I was skeptical about using a Personal Trainer. He is very knowledgeable about conditioning and rehabilitation of injuries. Michael always over-delivers He provides informative handouts demonstrating the correct form for exercises, and articles discussing how to achieve desired results. Michael provides workouts for me that I can follow two times a week for 6 to 8 week periods at my home. He provides efficient workouts that do not require spending hours at a gym. Over the years Michael has incorporated workouts using bands, weights, sandbags, kettlebells, the Bosu and other fitness items to keep my workouts interesting.”

Sandy Arons, Age 51


Michael Fish takes his profession seriously and has dedicated years to aiding aging adults like me feel and be stronger. As a former dancer, I find that his knowledge of the human body, muscles, bones, and joints, a huge plus and quite frankly, a huge comfort. What’s the phrase? I know I’m in good hands. With a smiling disposition and a caring heart Michael listens, encourages, and takes particular interest in each of his clients. I highly recommend him.

Betsy Chernau, Age 81

Dancer, Grandmother, Volunteer

“I could not have done these workouts on my own. Michael is a great trainer who pushes you to do your best. He is very supportive and great to work out with. You learn a lot from him such as exercises you can do on your own at home and great nutrition tips.

Judy Weiss

Happily retired and enjoying traveling

“During the week of thanksgiving 2010 I hard a stint put into my heart. I now needed to change my eating habits and exercise like I never did before. Mike has kept me on track as I maintain my weight and get into the best shape of my life. He has done an incredible job with my stamina and he has me doing things that I never thought I would be able to do before. He works me hard and with his easy going attitude and his continuous efforts of telling jokes, you don't realize how hard you are working. He has been a lifesaver to me and I can’t imagine where I would be without him.

Paul Brill, Age 55

After the first two weeks I was feeling results all over my body. I noticed a huge difference in my endurance level. It has improved drastically.
