Michael joined the Ignite team in the start of 2018. From Chester Va, he spent most of high-school swimming with his two brothers(John and Stephen) and sister, Rachel. After swimming for the University of South Carolina he graduated with a degree in retail management. He soon realized since competitive swimming had ended he had to find new ways to exercise, this led to cycling, Kettlebells, gymnastics rings, and back to the pool for a fun Friday!
In South Carolina he worked for KORE Wellness, the gym was valuable foundation for his learning about Kettlebells, The Pete Egscue Method, Primal Move, Steve Maxwell’s joint mobility encyclopedia, as well as Kelly Starret methods to cure the aches and pains of a desk bound working professional.
This teaching ignited his passion to help others knowing that with a little push and encouragement people can take responsibly for their body and as a result changing their life through movement!
