    Mike is a fantastic trainer. He knows exactly what I'm capable of (even when I complain that "I can't do it!"). He pushes me, and because of his dedication, I have seen amazing changes in my body. He's professional, punctual, and as committed to my personal goals as I am. Working out with Mike has completely changed not only my body, but my life. I couldn't recommend his training services more!

  • Shanna Salvatori

    My trainer was Mike Alicea and he was fantastic! He kept the workouts both fun and challenging, so much so that the hour would zip by without me ever noticing! I feel healthier and more fit than when I started, and I learned a lot from our time together. I would recommend training with him to anyone - well worth the investment!!

  • Cole Frank

    Mike is a great trainer. He's attentive, hardworking, and encouraging.

  • Rachel Harmon

    I have experienced not only a change in my body, but also a change in my attitude by working out with Crunch. They push me past what I believe I can do, because they believe! And this, this has made all the difference! Working out is no longer a chore. It's become a time for me to push past my personal boundaries, to achieve success beyond what I thought was possible, and to make real and visible changes in my life. But also, they make working out fun (especially Mike!).



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If you are interested in training we will speak over the phone to set up a date and time to do a one-on-one complementary assessment. This includes going over a health history form, talking about goals, taking initial measurements (i.e. weight and body fat percentage) and performing a small workout. After this is completed we will go over a timeline for the program and when you should expect to see your goals come to fruition.

How did you get started teaching?

Fitness has always been a big part of my life. I started playing sports at the age of 3 and haven’t stopped. I was involved it everything from martial arts, football, baseball, track and field and much more, so training became second nature to me. In 2014, I decided to get my personal training certification and I fell in love with being a trainer. The more I learn in this industry, the more I want to learn and pass that knowledge along to my students.


What types of students have you worked with?

I don’t have a “typical student” all the people I’ve worked with varying physical abilities. I’ve had clients that used to play collegiate and professional sports to clients whom come in needing a wheel chair to get around, and everything in between. As I go forward I look to work with more special populations, such as post rehabilitation patients, but I’m happy to work with anyone who wants to learn more about fitness.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my most proud moments was when one of my older clients told me that I not only changed her life, but saved it. When she first came to me she suffered from severe knee and back issues along with frequent gout attacks. Her knee problems where so bad that she could only use the elevator when coming to see me. After working (and continuing still) with her, she can use the stairs unassisted, is 3 inches taller from “straightening out” her back and has lost 7 inches around her waist.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone you get along with. This is “personal training” so it’s a good idea to have a great relationship with the person who’s training you.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I would advise them to ask the following questions;
- How long have you been training in the industry?
- What certifications do you hold?
- What continuing education are you looking to pursue?
- How many people have you worked with?
- What type of people have you worked with?
- Is this your life long career or is this a stepping stone for something else?
- How often should I work with you and do you assign “homework?"
