group training

Creative adventuring offers a small group of two to eight people the opportunity to train as a community supporting each other in attaining individual fitness goals while having fun together on outdoor adventures. Whether you are just beginning your fitness training or are training for a specific event, trip, or competition, Michael will work with your group to design indoor (e.g. obstacle courses) and or outdoor adventures that are challenging, safe and fun where you can work toward your fitness goals step by step together. 

Additionally, adventuring experiences can be designed to offer in-studio clients the possibility of doing something a bit different by getting outside their comfort zone and moving beyond their perceived limitations. Clients can take their basic fitness skills and training outside and enjoy the beauties of nature while biking, hiking, climbing, paddling, skiing, and/or snowshoeing. Michael is a Winter Outdoor Specialist with NOLS ski mountaineering and cold weather survival training. He offers year round adventuring & adventures, including, but not limited to, Minnesota Winter Adventures.

Joshua Hanen

I enlisted Michael’s expertise as a personal trainer and Pilates expert to deal with a painful lower-back issue.  Michael was able to stabilize and strengthen my core such that my back pain went away within a few weeks of starting to work with him.  I maintain my posture and pain-free back by doing a specially-designed exercise program Michael created for me every morning.  I highly recommend Michael for his ability to quickly translate into manifest reality the fitness goals of his clients.

Gretchen Hansen

My partner and I hired Michael as a personal trainer as part of our new year’s resolution in 2007. We worked with him for almost six months until moving across the country. I credit Michael with helping me break through both physical and mental barriers that I had in place with regard to working out and exercising. He is part fitness coach, part life coach and all around great guy. Michael always kept things fresh and different in the gym and that really kept me excited to go back.

I’d love to hear about your life fitness goals even if they feel like a far off dream!  I look forward to hearing from you!
