About Us

Mike Casey

After completing a BSc (Hons) in Sport & Exercise Sciences, Mike spent 5 years working in London as a Personal Trainer. During this time, he worked for Citigroup in Canary Wharf, and for Take Shape, which was a boutique personal training studio near Reigate in Surrey. Mike also delivered numerous corporate seminars and lectures to organisations such as HM Revenue & Customs, and the National Health Service. On behalf of the NHS, he has also piloted a very successful obesity programme, aimed at improving patient health in order to decrease the risk of co-morbidity.

Upon returning to Cornwall, Mike set up Optima Health & Performance in 2009, with the aim of being able to provide truly holistic programmes to his clients. After 18 years of experience, he has come to fully appreciate that the only effective way to deliver lasting results is via an integrative approach that combines, physical conditioning, movement, nutrition, sleep, mindfulness, and a sense of purpose. Using this approach, Mike has been able to help hundreds of individuals with ongoing back issues that were getting no better, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, challenges with weight loss, and sabotaging behaviours.
