Michael is an amazing trainer! He makes our sessions fun – he’s creative and always changes things up so it’s never boring or routine. During our sessions, he keeps our exercises challenging but is always checking in to make sure we don’t strain or hurt ourselves.

We originally started training with Michael because we knew we needed to build strength and get fit, but we weren’t eager to start. We were no athletes (not even close!) and wondered if we were making a mistake working with someone nearly half our age– turns out it was quite the opposite. We work out with Michael three days a week and it is the best investment we have ever made in ourselves!

We LOVE working with Michael and really look forward to our sessions. He has made a big difference in both of our lives!

I’ve been working out with Michael Siler and KinetiCore Fitness for about a year now, beginning twice a week and then shifting to three times a week. The evidence of my drastically improved physical well-being is obvious. Statistically, the weights I can lift have doubled (or more) and the time I can spend doing exhaustion exercises (plank matrices, etc.) has moved from 30-45 seconds to 1.5+ minutes at a time. My ability to accomplish complex, multifaceted exercises has grown tremendously — I started barely being able to do a proper bicep curl, and now I can do curl-to-lifts with a heavier weight while balancing on one foot on a “BOSU” ball. That’s all to say that my core strength and coordination are way better, and I’m looking better than I’ve ever looked! I’ve got muscle definition on my arms, chest, legs and torso which was never, ever there before. I feel strong, which, for a kid who’s been an overweight bookworm all his life, is saying something.

Michael’s methodology in making these changes possible is empowering, enjoyable and, most importantly, sustainable. I always look forward to going to the gym, I feel motivated to push my limits, yet I never feel like I’m unable to accomplish what he’s asking. And he’s funny and a good listener, so there’s that too.

I recommend Michael Siler and KinetiCore Fitness wholeheartedly and without reservation. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been, and I’ve got him to thank.

I have been training with Michael Siler for four months. I was hesitant due to his being young and, I feared, inexperienced. I was wrong. I have gained whole body and core strength, balance, agility, and I rarely experience aches or pains.

Michael varies my routines and exercises to work in a very integrated manner. He comes in with a preplanned list of exercises every session and wastes little time getting me to work. I am impressed that we rarely do the same thing twice. Michael seems to have many ways of working the same body areas while integrating the whole body. He is very conscientious about working with any injuries or conditions that I may have and always starts by asking how my body feels. He modifies anything that needs to be modified to accommodate this. His workouts are challenging, fun, and I feel great after doing them.

I also appreciate that Michael is a good business person. I have worked with trainers for several decades and Michael is the most consistent with keeping track of number of sessions and what I’ve paid or not paid. He really takes this off my plate.

I am very glad to be working out with Michael. I feel strong and fit.

As a school teacher, I told Michael Siler that my training goals were strength, endurance, and balance (the last one so that I could spin around from the blackboard to catch students in the act). I am also somewhat susceptible to ADD, which means that I get bored fairly quickly with repetitive routines. Michael and his workouts have addressed these challenges perfectly. Each week, he has a routine written out and prepared for me, and these workouts are varied, safe, and push me to achieve.

I see hiring a personal trainer as making an investment in my current and future health, and with Michael, this has been money well spent. I am stronger, slimmer, and quite satisfied with my gym experience under Michael’s tutelage.
