Before I began at MD Fitness I had a membership to a gym and would go 5 to 6 days a week making up my own workout “plans”. I had some decent results for a while but I eventually hit a wall and my progress stopped. I was spending more and more time exercising but getting less and less results. I also had developed knee problems from running, tendonitis in my elbows, and pain and loss of mobility in my shoulders from using bad form and over lifting. I had been to doctors and physical therapists and was seriously considering surgery on my knees.

A friend of mine told me he had been working out with coach Mike at MD Fitness, and how he was getting incredible results doing 30 minute workouts for only 2-3 days a week. I had never worked with a trainer before, but I gave it a shot. I was hooked from the first time. Mike had me doing exercises I would never have dreamed of doing, strengthening my core, boosting my metabolism, and strengthening all the areas around my joints that were causing me pain. All of this in just a 30 minute session!


I have been training at MD fitness for 6 months now. In that time my knee pain has virtually disappeared. I have added about 10 pounds of lean muscle to my body, and the inflammation in my joints is much more manageable. I’m coming up on 40 and I really feel and look the best I ever have!

MD Fitness’ trainers have a deep knowledge of the body. They customize workouts designed specifically for you, based on what your body needs. The trainers are encouraging and easy going, and the gym itself has a wide variety of new equipment in a clean and beautiful space. I highly recommend you check it out today!

"Coach Mike is an A-Mazing Personal Trainer‼️ I’ve Personally been helped by him with ongoing chronic back & shoulder & knee pain & issues… the exercises he’s provided and guided me with have dramatically improved the pain & issues I’ve experienced for many years‼️I’ve often said that I enjoy Physical Exercise for the “Mental Health” Benefits more than the Physical Benefits; I now realize I’ve said that in the past because I never really lost weight, got stronger, or relieved my pain…

I’ve been working with Coach Mike doing Personal Training for 5 months now and want to share that I have not only been relieved of my back, shoulder & knee pain & issues; I’ve also LOST 25 Pounds, FEEL HEALTHY & Feel The Best I ever have in my 55+ years of life… THANKS to Coach Mike & his Personal Training plus Nutritional Guidance Plan‼️

You CAN teach this old dog new tricks!
I have been into fitness for 30 years and always trained at home. I used books, dvds, and now YouTube videos; however, I traveled to Merced this week and thought I'd try a personal trainer. Mike took me through an hour of solid training and sweating! I halfway expected a male trainer to baby me, but he didn't and he showed me some techniques I never tried before.
Thanks again, Mike. You surprised me and worked me like a man!!!

"I love how he is really understanding and flexible! Great workouts! He guides you through every step and never walk away from you until you finish your workouts!"

"I am very happy to train here. The workout routines are ever-changing, fun, challenging and provide immediate results. Having a certified personal trainer is simply great.
There is no substitute for skills in a good coach. As long as you keep showing up, Mike will push you to achieve your goals after a careful and ongoing assessment of your fitness. With over 15 years of playing soccer, half of which at a decent level, and now having a personal trainer again, is of major importance for me. Because Mike is also capable of helping with sports injuries, different pain and aches, by applying different physical therapy techniques when needed. This is a nice startup for Ahwahnee and I hope Mike stays in business for quite some time."

"I've been training with Mike for about a month now, and I can definitely say that since I started working with him.. the changes have been truly amazing!! I already feel stronger than I've ever felt... and my clothes are loser which to me is always a strong indication that the training is working!

I can't say enough about how easy working with Mike is.. he is so patient and such an amazing person. He knows exactly what kind of training you need to fulfill your fitness goals. Every time I train with him, I notice a different muscle being worked and that to me is amazing!!

I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to fulfill their fitness goals and obtaining the body they've always wanted. He will absolutely get you there and keep you motivated and encouraged!!

Thank you Mike, not only are you an amazing person, but you are truly awesome at what you do!!"

"Prior to doing personal training, I was diagnosed with sciatica and a shortened leg. Coach Mike is helping me to correct sciatica and fix the uneven hips. I am noticing a big difference in my gait, posture and body mechanics in such a short amount of time. I love the challenge and how Coach Mike makes working out a learning experience. He's a great trainer and I do highly recommend him."

Great trainer! Makes you feel like family. Very attentive to your needs. Mike has really helped in my recovery from a knee replacement surgery.


-Cindy Bishop

"Mike is a really good trainer to have. If you are in pain he will work with you to help it out and still get the workout done as close as he can. If you are running late, you let him know about it he understands well about it. Mike doesn’t make you do anything that will hurt you, if you can’t do a certain amount of weight he will lower the weight with no questions asked. So my opinion Mike will be a good trainer for anybody to work out with and feel good at his place."


-Roy Saunders

"While entering the building for my workout today, Coach Mike noticed I was limping; this is an injury I’ve had since my 20's and have lived with a limp for over 40 years. Much to my surprise, Coach Mike addressed this without me ever asking. I didn’t realize it could be adjusted and corrected through proper stretching and loosening of muscles tendons, and ligaments. In a matter of 45 minutes, I was walking straighter and was able to stretch and bend in ways that I haven’t been able to in the past 40 years. Coach Mike takes fitness beyond crunches and jumping jacks, his approach to fitness is also about whole-body wellness, balance, and healing."
