Mike grew up in Indiana, and after years of organized sports, he found the competition pool to be where he excelled.  After his competitive swimming days were over, he moved into the sport of triathlon, where he continues to compete.  A desire to help others live a healthy lifestyle drove Mike to the fitness industry, where he works hard to help others find and maintain good health.

Mike's deep passion for sports lead him to coaching. He puts an emphasis on being a good role model for young athletes while helping them exceed their personal goals.  Swimming is an incredible way for people to stay active and healthy, and Mike hopes to continue to support the community and ensure that the aquatics department here at the YMCA is the go-to place when it comes to any pool-related needs.
