Bio – Michael Grogan
Michael focuses on developing body mobility and strength by using principles from gymnastics and Olympic lifting, combining them with conditioning and full body workouts.
After trying a “no pain, no gain” mindset in his early career, he found out his body was literally giving up on him. As such he has taken a fresh approach to his training. He now brings his clients on a different fitness journey, focusing on building stronger and more flexible bodies with solid foundations and movement skills.
Michael uses training as a vehicle to help people break down mental barriers they have placed on themselves through social conditioning and their background. Specifically self confidence and self-belief.
He does this by developing the physical body using tools from 3 disciplines: Gymnastics Strength Training, Advanced Mobility and Barbell Strength & Power.
They have just finished up for the year but check it out and perhaps consider this for the new year as a weekly session to get you moving and strong. Michael can be contacted here:
