Mick’s trainer was an awesome man named Quint who told him that he should look into becoming a trainer himself. With a newfound love for weight-training, Mick became certified Fall 2007. When he moved back to his hometown of Indy, Mick did not feel comfortable in the ordinary gym-setting as a trainer. The fitness centers he looked into seemed to find more importance in simply “selling” the training sessions, rather than actually focusing their attention on the individuals. So personal training took a backseat for several years.
In May of 2015, Mick reached out to Adam Cayce because he wished to pack on more muscle mass. With Adam’s business thriving and a friendship soon solidified, Adam asked Mick if he would like to join him in training clients. The decision was easy, and as of May 2016, Mick joined ARC as a personal trainer, making many wonderful memories and forming fantastic friendships throughout the journey.
In addition to weight-training, Mick has been a CrossFit athlete since February 2013. He’s found a great middle-ground between the two fitness worlds, and he enjoys incorporating CrossFit workouts ~ constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity ~ into his training regimen with ARC clients. With all of these creative juices flowing, Mick has witnessed constant growth and constant transformation ~ within the clients AND himself! So many people have changed their lives ~ physically, mentally, emotionally ~ within the ARC community. It is one thrilling experience after another for Mick to be a part of these improvements, and every day he walks into ARC “GYM” with a smile on his face!
Outside of the gym, you can find Mick testing his acting chops in a stage production or a local independent film; rubbing elbows with celebrities at horror film conventions; and putting his own stories to paper.
