I have to say that when I took a cold call from World Health in March of 2014, my gym of only two months, I was sceptical. I had recently decided that my lack of physical health was the detrimental by-product of my strong financial health. I had spent years building and developing my business MYLIFE Financial Group and my physical health was at an all time low. Low enough that I decided on a whim, to join a gym. It was close enough to my office to fit the odd workout in with my hectic schedule.
The call, went something like this: “Hi is this Matthew….It’s Mike Schwartz from World Health and I’m hoping to get you in for a personal training session”. I was hesitant but decided to give it a shot. I was told I had nothing to lose and lots to gain. Schwartz was right. Admitting that to myself was the catalyst I needed to kick start my journey to a stronger and healthier physical well being.
Over the course of the next year, Schwartz worked with me on a 1 on 1 basis to educate, instruct, assist, and design my workout program. He used caution early on to ensure my long-term success. Gradually as I built strength the programs became more and more challenging while continuing to engage my interest.
My initial goals were weight loss, and to feel more active. Over time, they shifted to strength training, and an overall healthier lifestyle. With Schwartz’s help, a commitment on my part, and the hard work we put in together, I am happy to say that my goals remain in my foresight and continue to evolve. Long term planning for sustainable results. Its crucial to the success of any individual’s plan.
My results were slow at first but progressed to a level I was happy with. Coming back from 6 years of sedentary lifestyle takes time he would say. Schwartz has helped me build the habits that are needed for long term success in regards to health both physically and mentally.
When an individual is out of shape, obese, or physically inactive, it takes a toll on their mental health. Helping to discover the why for your efforts is something Mike is well versed in. For me it was and always will be my family. Identifying my reason or my “why” helped me when things were tough, or I was sore, or just plain uninterested. Having someone to count on and assist with your goals as well to be accountable is imperative.
Mike is a true professional. The goals I set with him are goals most would think are easy to attain. I can tell you that without his help, those goals would long be forgotten, and the results would never have arrived. I am in much better shape as a result of the work we did together. His planning, guidance, and ability to educate, combined with my efforts have paid off and continue to pay dividends.
If someone in your life is struggling with reaching their goals or having trouble getting started with the process, ask them to contact Schwartz. I have recommended friends and colleagues to engage his services and have heard only positive feedback. He is without fail, an incredible person to task such an important part of your well being with. Professional, Highly Skilled, Elite, Educated, Committed, Knowledgeable, Diverse, and most importantly a friend are the words I use when describing him. Take note, a true star has arrived.
