Gymnazo started as a childhood dream. Growing up, Michael loved sports and strength training in high school, but was always curious about how to learn to fix injuries and help people get back to what they love. He moved to Fresno State to study Kinesiology. Desiring to live in a coastal community, he graduated college, packed up his room and moved to SLO weeks later. No house, no job, one friend and a strong vision.
After standing in Kennedy Club Fitness handing out business cards to generate enough clients to convince the manager to hire him as a Personal Trainer, Michael started to carve out his reputation in San Luis Obispo (SLO). Knowing that Kinesiology and a basic personal training certification wasn’t nearly enough education to deliver the best service, he started seeking graduate level education.
