Fascinated by human movement and intrigued with how to increase its performance, Mike first began coaching at sixteen and was hooked on the challenge of helping people break through their limitations and achieving their performance goals. After time in the military in his early twenties he returned to university to dedicate his life to this pursuit; studying sport science and serving apprenticeships with elite coaches from several endurance and strength sports.
Now with almost fifteen years experience working with people from beginners to international level strength and endurance athletes, Mike unifies an evidence-based scientific approach with the art of coaching to get the most from each individual. The Human Performance Development running squad includes many of Australia’s strongest Master’s Age athletes in Athletics. Multiple world-record holder Lavinia Petrie is both a member of the squad and an assistant coach.
In addition to coaching, Mike is a partner at Sport Consultants Australia.
