“Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise.”
Hello everyone. My name is Mike and I’ve been a part of the Pure Austin family since the summer of 2006. Along the road I’ve obtained my degree in Kinesiology from The University of Texas at Austin, as well as my personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine (A.C.S.M.) During my time at the University of Texas, I had the great opportunity to work as an assistant to the strength and conditioning coaches for the volleyball, rowing, swimming and softball teams. Through that experience, and my time here at Pure Austin, I’ve been able to mold my own philosophy and approach to training. Another great experience, and possibly the most defining moment of my life was my service in the United States Marine Corps. I spent 7 years in the Corps, with deployments overseas, and countless training missions run all over the U.S. My experience in the Marines has instilled in me the discipline, confidence and ambition with which I tackle everyday life. We have core values of:
Honor: To exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior, to abide by an uncompromising code of integrity, to have respect and concern for each other and to hold ourselves accountable for our decisions and actions.
Courage: the mental, physical and moral strength that carries us through challenges and fear. To do what is right, lead by example and to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
Commitment: The spirit of determination and dedication within us that leads to professionalism and mastery of our lives. It is an unrelenting determination to achieve a standard of excellence in every endeavor.
It is through these values and my experience that I plan on bringing you to a higher level of fitness, both physically and mentally. I’ll be waiting for you.
