I've been working with Mike for over 2 years now, and I think that alone speaks to the 5 stars! Time flies when you're working out with Mike, and things are never boring. I can count on Mike to constantly mix up the workouts and incorporate new exercises and pieces of his own workout routines. Mike is constantly learning and is active in keeping up with developments in technique and exercise and nutrition theory. Mike focuses on a holistic approach to training, focusing not only on the "mirror muscles," but how each muscle group allows the body to function. I spend 45+ hours at a desk each week for work and as a result, developed the office hunch and some noticable muscle imbalances. Throught his initial assessment, Mike developed the plan to bring me back into balance and keep me there. With Mike, I'm now focused on more strength and power, while maintaining the philosophy of functional development.
As a 66 year old male, I have been a Type 2, non-insulin dependent Diabetic for 14 years, congestive heart failure 12 years ago and have high blood pressure. About 9 months ago, my spouse and I decided to enlist the services of Maurie Cofman, my personal trainer, in order to get a more balanced exercise program. The results have been remarkable! I have been able to reduce my daily diabetic medication by 75%. I also have more energy, my muscle tone has increase significantly and I have a better outlook on life. Recently, I went in to see my cardiologist, who was also very impressed with my results. My heart is stronger and clearer and now I don’t need to have a stress test every year. Now I consider the two most important people in my health program are my doctor, who I see every 3 months, and my trainer, Maurie, who I see twice a week.” Glen Light, Retired computer analyst
I've been a member of Powerhouse for about 6 years now and it's the best gym you can find in St. Louis. This isn't some social hour where people eat pizza and chit chat. It's a real gym where people of all ages, sizes, and fitness levels come to get a good workout for an affordable price in a friendly enviroment. It's extremely clean and well kept up. Roger has expanded what the gym has to offer to now include CrossFit along with personal training, nutrition, cardio classes, and a huge selection of weights and cardio machines to use. You never have to wait for a piece of equipment because there are multiples of everything so you can maximize your time in the gym and get a great workout instead of waiting around to use a machine. This really is the best gym in town and has everything you need all in one place!
