Michael reveals his secrets for trimming, shaping, and sculpting the body in the shortest time possible
Whole-Body Health Coaching Philosophy
Leading celebrity trainer, wellness innovator and Whole-Body Health Coach, Michael George introduces a revelatory body/ mind program to the world of fitness. He integrates PFTT©, a performance-based, functional movement fitness training technology, which integrates the latest in exercise science, neuroscience, and somatic (body-centered) psychotherapy practices for accelerated body transformation results. Connection of the body/ mind system leads to a truly holistic, lifestyle altering, whole-body health transformation experience! All bodily systems, inclusive of the embodied psyche and soul, are designed to function in harmonic partnership as a balanced system for optimal Whole-Body Health. Lifestyle behavior, attitude, environment, belief systems, body-structure patterning, and a healthy diet, all must be aligned for the synergistic integration of the body/ mind system. Integration of somatic (body-centered) therapy practices into fitness protocols shifts the primary focus from solely a body-image perspective, toward development of a more conscious, body-awareness mentality.
This shift in perspective facilitates deeper connection with the intuitive self. In connecting with the “wisdom of the body” we bridge the gap between the (ego-based) conscious, and the highly intuitive (soul-based) unconscious. Mindful awareness within movement-based exercise facilitates a synchronistic connection to the bodies “needs and wants”, versus separation from body and/ or coercion to transform to “unrealistic” or self-defeating body image demands. In making the body/ mind collaboration a primary objective we literally expedite all body-transformation goals; including that of weight loss! Moreover we open the gateway to greater self-realization, life balance, sense of purpose and lifestyle behavior modification in all areas of life.
Progressive Functional Training Technology PFTT©
PFTT© is a progression of functional movement and performance-based training, through moderate-to-high intensity interval/ circuit training, which incorporates boxing, CORE instability, balance, agility plyo-metrics, TRX suspension training, coupled with corrective posture, and body structure rehabilitation. In essence PFTT© is a fun, dynamic, results-oriented, total-body training system designed to accelerate body-fat reduction, and expedite body sculpting, toning, and shaping, while increasing overall strength, power, endurance, and functional movement.

Michael’s Personal Story
