"Fitness has always been about keeping the ability to lead an active lifestyle for me. Through high school, I was a three sport athlete - golf, basketball and volleyball. As I age, I continue to want to stay active, and more importantly would like to stay active and compete at a high level. My love of medically based fitness stems from a long family history of disease. In my extended family, there is a long history of heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. I believe that an emphasis on Fitness is the key to fighting those issues. Fitness is important in leading the lifestyle that I plan on leading personally, and would love to share my knowledge with all OPHFC members as well."

I have been fortunate enough to train athletes who have become stronger, faster and a better athlete overall. Now, I strive to help YOU, find your love in fitness and make it something you look forward each day."

"Hello, my name is Michael Kane and I recently graduated from Western Illinois University. I have a degree in Exercise Science, and have spent a good deal of time working in corrective exercise and rehab techniques. I spent 9 months at a physical therapy office, where I learned a great deal of recovery methods, which I am an advocate for! With my experiences, I have a special interest in working with clients who may be recovering from accidents, falls, or are just generally interested in improving mobility and quality of life. Most of my time has been spent with those that are injured, but my personal interests are geared towards hypertrophy and strength training, which adds a well-rounded training approach for my clients, and even myself."
