Hear right from our members about the difference Fitness Connection has made for them in reaching their fitness goals!

Training with Mike has changed my life and my health and it was the best decision I have ever made.

“When I first came to Fitness Connection I was overweight; well over 270 pounds. I was also advised by my cardiologist that I needed to lose weight or things would not turn out well. I signed up and started working out fairly regularly and started my path to losing weight. The classes that are available to all gym members were fun and I got a great workout. I was losing weight and feeling great. But I still had not got the physique that I wanted – I hit a plateau. At this point I decided to get a personal trainer, and I was assigned Mike Mak. He assessed and created a plan that suited my needs and my fitness level and would help me achieve my goals. My progress was rapid and amazing. When coming to the gym alone, I did not understand how to do various exercises properly, I did not see results and I was at risk of injuring myself. Mike guided me through my exercises and gave me pointers and tips throughout. I started noticing results and so did everyone around me. I lost a lot of weight and reached 195 pounds. Not only did I lose weight but I lost fat and was gaining muscle. With the exercises that he planned I did not even have excess skin, which was a concern of mine. A great personal achievement for me was being able to confidently take off my shirt to swim, which I had not been able to previously. My physique is the best it has been since I was 8 years old. I am now able to get regular sized clothes and not have to wear size 46 pants.


He will personalize the training routine to meet your needs and allowing you to meet your goal

“Before training with Mike, I had a membership at Xtreme Fitness for 2 years but I went no more than a total of three times.  Mike is a friendly, approachable and extremely knowledgeable trainer with the understanding and ability to make you reach your fitness goals.

He will provide you with the fundamental basics to exercise and training, allowing you to take matters into your own hands and workout on the off days by yourself without fear of being inept to operate machines or having incorrect posture.

He will personalize the training routine to meet your needs and allowing you to meet your goals.  He has the ability and profound judgment to subtly push you and strongly encourage you during training to reach further heights to increase performance.  He is able to meticulously balance the amount of assertion and encouragement that one needs to succeed in the training program.

About a year and a half ago, I would go to Abercrombie and Fitch and purchase XXL size t-shirts, but now I find that even the Large is spacious!  Mike is an amazing trainer and I could not be any more happy with the results.  Even more so, I feel like my daily routine has more structure and balance from the time and effort I have put into training and exercising.

I initially expected to join the personal training program for a couple months, but after taking part in such motivating experience and understanding how much more I still have to benefit and learn from Mike even after 1.5 years, I know that I will continue to train with Mike. My lifestyle has positively changed tremendously and I feel so much more confident with the way I approach simple daily tasks.  My involvement and commitment with Mike and the personal training program has allowed this to happen.  I definitely recommend this!”
