My greatest passion is helping people like you through coaching, but currently, my semi-private sessions are full and my group athlete sessions are full until Fall of '22. The best way to increase your chances of us working together is for you to get on my waitlist.
When you join my waitlist you will reserve your spot for me to reach out when I have a spot open up.
If you put your info in the box below then you will not only get on my waitlist, but you will get a free copy of my e-book "How to Push It in the Gym" which will help you ensure that you're making progress in the gym along with a copy of my "Clean & Lean Shake Guide" which is a 1-page guide that will help you build a smoothie that falls right in-line with your short & long-term goals.
If you're interested in hearing more about my "Custom Program Design" online coaching program or if you're local and want a place to train and have me write programs for you specific to your needs and goals, then be sure to check off "Drop-In Membership + Custom Program Design".
Thanks so much for your interest and I look forward to working with you soon!
Strength & Conditioning for Basketball Players
Basketball is a passion of mine.
It has been for a very long time.
I grew up making a TON of mistakes with my on-court development which wasn’t specific to only the things that I was doing on the court.
Off-the-court I was lifting every day, not eating enough, not sleeping enough, and carrying around a very poor mindset that wasn’t conducive to me being the best athlete that I could be.
After all the struggles and injuries endured in high school, I lost my love for playing the game.
During that time though I went to college and learned about anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and much more regarding athlete performance. I would start with my learning in the class and then would continue to search for more beyond the classroom after obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science.
I’ve bridged the gap of understanding the ins and outs of athletic performance and applying it to developing basketball players off-the-court.
I do this because I love the game so much and don’t want young basketball players making the same mistakes that I made growing up.
Over the span of the past decade, I’ve worked with basketball players from middle school to the NBA. During that time I’ve helped over 30 local youth develop and grow themselves into collegiate athletes.
I’ve worked with:
*AAU programs (Common Bond, The Academy)
*Western Michigan Broncos Men’s Basketball (intern)
*2014/2015 & 2015/2016 Arbor Prep Boys Varsity Basketball
*2019/2020 and 2020/2021 Ann Arbor Huron Boys Varsity Basketball team that finished 41-1 over those two years and in 2021 finished as State Runner Up for Division 1 and a total of 9 of those players from Huron went on to play college basketball at the NCAA Division 1, 2, and 3 levels
*Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the University of Michigan-Dearborn Men's Basketball for the 2022-2023 season
*College basketball players who have played at Lehigh, University of Albany, William & Mary, Miami Ohio, Wayne State, Calvin, Adrian College, Kalamazoo College, College of the Redlands, Olivet, Northwood, Lake Superior State, Cornerstone, Siena Heights, Fisk University, and Detroit Mercy
*NBA players for the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat
Memberships start at $160/mo
"COVAL has far exceeded our expectations! Mike has become a mentor to our son and such a positive influence in his life! Our son looks forward to going every week and has made more strides in his confidence and in athletics than we could have hoped for!"
I have seen two young athletes start off early in this program, my son and a young girl. What Mike and his team have done in transforming them into HIGHER Athletes is incredible. I was directed to him as “the BEST trainers outside the NCAA programs” and I could not agree more!!
"I've always been one to shy away from gyms, not feeling like I fit with the culture. My experience with COVAL has flipped my preconceived notion. COVAL is one of the most welcoming and places that I've had the pleasure to work out in and develop a community with.
COVAL has given me the tools to be successful in weight loss, meal prep, nutrition and exercise techniques. If you're shy or hesitant about taking the next step towards a healthier and happier you like I was, know that you'll quickly find a home at COVAL. What better way to invest, than to invest in yourself!"
