Michael Cassesa

Mike believes safety comes first with his students. This means that proper form and technique be used in ALL aspects of training. While it’s necessary to push one’s boundaries to grow as a person and to achieve one’s goals, these boundaries should not be pushed when risk of injury is high. Mike has strongly adopted his training philosophies from Relson Gracie and Pavel Tsatsouline…Least amount of risk for the Greatest reward!

Strength & Power


As a new personal trainer I've sought guidance under Mike for strength and conditioning training. My goal is mainly hypertrophy, I would like to build strength and increase my explosive power.   I also love movement, flexibility and  balance I like to maintain those levels.

I hope to see these improvements with Mike and excited about the potential explosive gains lol😎💪

Just Getting Started


Bottom line I can’t wait to train while knowing that someone with experience has my back and really let‘s me worry about just showing up which is always the hardest part.

Mike trained my wife and I for the past 2 years with rigor, compassion, and expertise. We took the SFG certification last week and absolutely crushed it! We couldn't and likely wouldn't have done it without him!
