Retired Teacher, Truro
I first consulted Mike Casey when I was in my late sixties and decided to make some changes to my rather sedentary life style and expanding waistline. I was encouraged by the prospect of a one-to-one trainer who had a studio quite near to me but I have to admit to being somewhat nervous at the start.
Right from the initial consultation I felt very comfortable with Mike and the surroundings and was really impressed with his personalised and structured approach. His guidance covered healthy eating, exercise, rest and relaxation and work/life balance in a truly holistic way.
As a retired teacher I soon came to admire his teaching style which is clear, concise and encouraging with occasional references to diagrams, books, on line resources as well as relevant personal demonstration. His knowledge of everything underlying the concepts of physical training and nutrition is extensive and I have never been in doubt of the reason why I am doing a certain activity and what it will accomplish. He is also remarkably articulate and thorough in answering questions.
I have been attending Mike’s studio for six years now and I have no doubt whatsoever that my life style is healthier, nutrition more carefully considered and stress more confidently managed, and I fully intend to keep it that way. Who would have thought all those years ago that this seventy- something woman would look forward to training sessions and continuing with a regime so expertly developed by Mike?
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike as a personal trainer. Whatever your stage in life, wherever you are in your fitness journey or whatever your goals Mike Casey can help you reach your potential.
