Hey there - I'm Mike Goncalves.
As a kid, I was so scrawny my mom took me to the doctor to get checked out thinking I must be sick. Turned out I wasn’t sick, just your scrawny average kid (haha)!
I don't come from an athletic family but instead a Portuguese family who loves to eat and drink. How I am not 300 pounds today remains a mystery to me. In any case, from ages 8 to 18, I failed terribly in school and was often told I wasn't smart enough or good enough for success (BS right)?
It was during this time I discovered that despite of how crappy I felt or how low my confidence got, my health and fitness kept me energized, confident, and moving forward.
Prioritizing my health and fitness (two things 100% in my control) changed my life.
Today, I get up at 4:30am five times a week to exercise when I was never a morning person.
I’ve ran and continue to run half marathons, marathons, and ultra-marathons.
I'm 43 years old and able to still maintain six pack abs.
As an entrepreneur I’ve grown my business to where I'm able to do work I love 24/7.
All this because of my commitment to exercise, to my health and fitness.
I don’t tell you this to brag, I tell you this to share with you the value of making health and fitness a priority.
It’s because of this impact that health and fitness has made in my life that I’ve committed myself to helping entrepreneurs like you commit to your health and fitness as well in order to realize your own self-worth, value, and full potential through health and exercise by continuing to grow, learn, get better, and feel better.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and helping you feel your absolute best.
See you in the academy!
