Michael George’s strength training techniques and constant motivation prepared me for the most physical role of my career to date. I chose to work with Michael because I knew I would be able to achieve the level of strength and endurance that I needed for this demanding role. I consider Michael to be the consummate professional, and most important, a friend. And he’s funny.
~Meg Ryan, Actor
I wasn’t taking care of my body as well as I could. Michael provided a key aspect to my lifestyle transformation, which was accountability and discipline. I have no doubt Michael can inspire people all over the world…..through his words, guidance and compassion.

~Mark Victor Hansen, Co-creator, #1 New York Times best-selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul
“Michael George has been a great resource for me over the past five years. Whenever I’ve needed a workout, an exercise tip, or a quote, Michael has always had one ready for me—usually with two or three options in case the first one doesn’t work out. He not only knows how to get people in shape, he knows how to explain the art and science of his craft.
~Lou Schuler, Fitness Director of Men’s Health Magazine

~Kathy Kaeler, Fitness Expert
Michael George is a very unique individual and fitness professional. It’s not often that you meet someone in your field that makes you sit up and take notice. Michael stands out in his field because of his unique approach to fitness and spirituality. He has combined Eastern philosophies and techniques with traditional Western knowledge of Health & Fitness. His combined approach is extremely effective to a sound mind, body, and soul.
~Nancy Kennedy and Bobby Strom of Kennedy & Strom Fitness, Fitness Experts
In my work with cancer survivors who engage in exercise, I have learned perhaps the most profound lesson as an instructor- that conditioning is not just for running faster or lifting more. It can take us into ourselves; challenge us to regain our health, to endure pain, to achieve our goals. Michael’s philosophy on exercise and healing has more application to the average person than any fitness gimmick or expensive running shoe. It is what we all really look for in fitness, to know ourselves better and to constantly improve ourselves. Congratulations to you, Michael for advancing fitness to the next logical level.
~Erik P. Durak, MSc, Director of Cancer Wellness, President-Medical Health & Fitness
Michael has the ability to get you to take action, while at the same time he allows you to find peace, love, and harmony that we all inherently possess. This is a book that will truly change the way you think about exercise. This is required reading for the body, mind and soul.
~Dr. Tony O’Donnell, President of O’Donnell’s Health Advantage, Inc.
Michael George’s approach to fitness and transforming lives is phenomenally effective. He really understands how to guide, motivate and educate through a mind/body approach, which takes into account the whole person, providing for life-long lifestyle changes. I refer my patients to Michael because I am completely confident that he will help them attain and surpass their health and fitness goals, while improving their quality of life. Michael’s book will forever change the way the world approaches fitness and health.
~Dr. Tony Perrone, Ph.D., author of The Body Fat Breakthrough, Celebrity Nutritionist
More and more medical science is making it clear that our Society’s greatest risk to physical wellness is our inactivity. We now know that improvements in fitness reduce the risk of almost every chronic disease of the twenty-first century. However, despite this evidence, and despite our best intentions and New Year’s resolutions to the contrary, our society is more obese and less fit than ever before. Michael George’s integrated mind-body approach to fitness and spiritual health is EXACTLY what’s needed. His program acknowledges the power of small improvements in daily discipline to not only create a healthy body, but a more fit mind and a happier life as well. Michael works with the complete mind-body-spirit connection, thus the whole body, to help clients overcome fears and obstacles on their way to a better life. I truly feel Michael’s book will open the door to what modern fitness is all about.
~Dr. Marcus Elliott, Fitness Trainer at the Olympic Training Center since 1989, Research Consultant to the NFL
What do clients say about Michael!
Thank you for this and the inspirational quotes! I’m loving the morning workouts….the whole program! You’re the best all-around trainer that I’ve ever trained with and I really appreciate your expertise. Thank you again for including me in your Body Express class. I’ve read up on Carb Cycling and I’m going to start now. If you have any other ideas, I would love to hear them and happy to implement them as you definitely know what you are talking about when it comes to nutrition
Before training with Michael, I was never really sure if what I was doing in the gym was right or whether or not my diet was adequate. With Michael’s fitness and nutrition coaching, programs and wise guidance, I can now go to the gym with the confidence of knowing that the program I am working is the right program for me. I have learned so much and have lost 22 lbs in 8 weeks. I feel better than ever! His fitness coaching is phenomenal.
~Susan Jenkins, Ohio
I never thought I could hire a trainer and expert the kind of results Michael delivered. But with Michael’s constant motivation and incredible exercise routines I have seen amazing results. I can now fit into a size 3 which I haven’t worn for over 6 years. I have more energy than I know what to do with and the nutrition plan is easy to follow and to adhere to.
~Tricia Morgan, Oregon
I’ve always had a hard time putting on muscle mass. Michael’s muscle building program kicked my butt and added 15 pounds of muscle in less than 6-weeks. He completely changed my diet and workout regime. MG is definitely the man when it comes to fitness!
~Jay Samuel’s, Pittsburgh
Michael’s training system works miracles, and I’m not exaggerating! When we started training in July, I was 240 pounds, my body and heart where both very weak. I followed Michael’s exercise routine and nutrition program verbatim. I was shedding 5-pounds a week for the first 4-weeks! Then I reached a plateau, which Michael assured me would pass, so I stuck with it. Michael constantly changed up my exercise routines to shock my muscles and jump-start my weight loss efforts again. Just as Michael had stated my body began responding again within a few weeks. It is now January, and in 6-months to the day I have lost exactly 50 pounds of body fat. But that’s not the most important thing. I am 50 years old, and my body has changed to that of an athlete at least 10 years younger and my heart is stronger than ever! People who know me did not recognize me at first. That is how drastic the change was. Thank you Michael for stopping my downward spiral and adding many more quality years to my life!
~Allen Battino, Award Winning Visual Effects Art Director
Of course only a “positive light” shines! Michael is that positive, shining light. He performed miracles on this old body of mine that I never thought could happen. I don’t know how he does it other than having an uncanny intuitive sense of how to sculpt, strengthen a body without pushing too hard or too fast. I am forever grateful to this miracle man who humbly refers to himself as just another trainer!
I’ve been working out for years and have used many personal trainers. Michael is by far the most innovative trainer ever. He utilizes exercises and routines that get maximum results, and he’s fun to work out with. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone seeking to get in the best possible shape of their life.
~ Bill Glaser
Michael George ignores the call of surrender. He is the promise of all possibilities. He is the spirit between hope and uncertainty. He is a human monument who shouts to all who will hear and even those who won’t. He gives full measure of his wisdom with nothing left out. He has quietly provided me a firm foundation for personal health and physical fitness. He is an incredible trainer, a magnificent person and a force of nature in the fitness world.
~ Paul Van Zyl
Finally, someone is letting us mere mortals in on all the secrets-for free! I tried the sculpting workout for the first time today, and I felt as if I had a personal trainer right by my side. I always wondered why no magazine would ever give up these tips. They are presented clearly and concisely. He has given me new hope and direction, and I am sure that I am not the only one to feel this way. Great Job Michael G!
~ Allyson in response to Michael’s Article in Body by Glamour
I have been an athlete all of my life, but following the conclusion of a Division I collegiate rowing career I wasn’t able to find anyone who was willing or able to push my workouts far enough to maximize my potential, until I met Michael. He has done an amazing job of taking my physical performance to the next level, focusing on a wide variety of areas, while providing a mixture of exercises which kept me on my toes as my workouts changed every time we trained. Michael has fulfilled for me my need to be pushed beyond what my body or my mind believes it can achieve and has allowed me to achieve a level of performance beyond my expectations.
~ Paul Haga, Los Angeles
Michael, I hope you had a most wonderful holiday season! I am just dropping a quick line to let you know that I had to buy new jeans this past weekend…a size smaller! I have been sticking to the three nutrition principles you told me when you came to speak at State Farm: First, eat a salad with each meal. Second, taper off the carbs throughout the day and Third, doing the leg exercises you taught me. Thank you for the life altering advice.
~ Andrea Ratermann
Facing down a big birthday and an important photo shoot and feeling no love from my closet, I had 1 month to prepare myself for all that plus a real physical challenge – 8 days of sailing. My goal was to be lean and strong – and I made it – dropping 11 lbs and one full size in 30 days.
I was recommended to Michael George as an experienced professional and an intuitive teacher. Our preliminary interview revealed a need to eat more frequently throughout the day, and Michael told me how to enhance the quality of what I was eating to really make it count. He also transformed walking my dog into a super-charged cardio workout that he called “walking with purpose” – to burn fat!
Michael was totally willing to collaborate with my limitations (I had no prior experience of a personal fitness plan) and gave me clear instructions, building step-by-step, teaching me in a way I could understand. I made a daily commitment to small attainable goals mapped out by Michael in my own personalized plan, and within a week I was stronger and smaller.
Working with Michael brought me back to the basic principle of succeeding — “gentle pressure consistently applied” — and a little bit of effort every day really worked for me. Unexpectedly, side benefits included increased cheerfulness and confidence as well as a renewed sense of optimism. I became more productive in my personal and professional life, and got my sense of humor back as well!
I started the month not wanting to run, but now I find myself spontaneously jogging across the street and running up and down stairs. Thank you Michael for this invaluable life-changing experience; anyone looking for health and beauty should start with fitness.
What can I say about Michael George that will do this man justice? He’s the ultimate resource for fitness, an amazing spokesperson, a consummate professional, and one heck of a nice guy. I’ve had the pleasure of being both Michael’s client and working with Michael as a client and I’ve been extremely pleased with our work together each and every time. If you’re looking for a fitness expert, to change your body fast, for a media campaign or for a speaking engagement Michael should be at the top of your list.
