My name is Mike Hoard. I have been a Personal Trainer for over 15 years. I am certified by NASM and ACE. I have trained people for so many different reasons over those years. I can help you reach your goals faster, more efficiently and have fun. When I got started I was an avid cyclist and mountain bike racer. I got involved in spinning classes and working for fitness competitions. Back in those days we didn’t have smart phones and the internet was limited so we had to travel to do our testing,”old school”. I was one of the original trainers here at Golds and am proud to still be here.
I’m just an average guy and I love training the “average” person because that’s who I am. I have dealt with many of the same sort of struggle and survived. There’s been a lot of change in my life these past 2 years. I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoma Leukemia which is a blood cancer. I thank God and the support of all the people back at Gold’s for getting me through. I am now 100% leukemia free and am gaining strength and stamina everyday. I am so blessed with the opportunity to come back to training here at Golds Gym. The passion for my craft has not been diminished, but has been encouraged.
Gold’s Gym is where I feel at home. It is where I can help so many people. I’ve made it through challenges and struggles in my life and found my way back. I want to help everyone else no matter the struggle or desire to get stronger. It is a blessing for this opportunity to change lives one at a time. One step at a time.
