Who We Are

Trainer Who Cares


I am a real guy, local St. Pete resident and Dad to four kids. My great passion is teaching other real people how to live a more healthy lifestyle. 

After letting my health get out of control, I walked away from my job and changed everything about how I live. I took it a step further and obtained my ACE Personal Training and nurtition specialist certification. 

Check out Fat Daddy in the news!

Also, check out my Trainer Tuesday video with Healthy St. Pete. 

Why Fat Daddy?


"Fat Daddy" is one part joke and one part a reminder of where I came from. I strongly believe that taking yourself too seriously or setting unreasonable goals leads to failure in healthy living for most people.

So, embrace your inner "Fat Daddy" and join your neighbors in a St. Pete local fitness program. 

Your Success is Our Goal


We understand that adapting new fitness habits is difficult and often times fails. Our goal is to change your view on fitness, so that it becomes apart of who you are and your lifestyle. We strongly believe that if you practice healthy habits, you will be able to obtain a healthy lifestyle. 

Recent landmark studies show that the best benefits from physical fitness (stress relief, mental focus, and memory for example) are amplified by training outside.



What is boot camp?

A fitness boot camp is type of group exercise class (typically held outdoors) that mixes cardio and body weight exercises with interval training and strength training. 

Is Mike certified/insured/legal?

Yes. Mike is an ACE certified trainer with an additional nutrition specialization. He is fully insured and has the appropriate approvals from the city to administer these boot camps.
