Mike Riley

Mike has a passion for the outdoors and that’s where his fitness journey began. Mountain biking, hiking, skiing and snowboarding lead him to improve his exercise regimen so he could enjoy the activities he loves even more.
“It’s the snowball effect, exercise leads to better sleep, better sleep leads into having more energy and feeling better which leads into an active healthy lifestyle, physically and mentally.”

My goal is to transform lives through making health and wellness obtainable for everyone, no matter their age or current level of fitness. Starting with the basics and progressively integrating learned skills and techniques to reach and surpass your fitness goals. My job as a personal trainer is to inspire and challenge you. I also create a workout program specific to your needs that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable, so that it remains a life-long endeavor.
