My dietary changes, the stretches and the deep water running have been absolutely transformational in tuning and strengthening my body. In just a couple of months of working with Coach Michael Holland (and after about 10 years), I am now at my ideal weight. I feel great and with each week my knee is getting stronger. I have resumed a weekly practice of hiking the PG&E Trail at Rancho San Antonio (a rigorous 8 mile hike) without any knee pain, and I am looking forward to returning to doing triathlons with my daughter, who is 37 years my junior!
Michael is an amazing “healer” trainer and coach!
I have been able to observe his work over the years with athletes and injuries in all age groups. My most recent personal issue was a complete rupture of my hamstring muscles off of the posterior pelvis playing “A” league hockey at age 55. I am a long ago retired pro and a practicing surgeon. My orthopedic colleagues recommended surgery and I was advised I might not regain normal function.
I turned to Michael. RRIP!. Regression, Recovery, Integration Progression. We started with Ice, then Ice and heat with the tiniest of reactivation movements and nerve “reawakening”. Ultimately over 4-6 months with intensive pool therapy (deep water movement, walking then running), Active Isolated Stretching and TRX. Guess what!! Complete recovery. No more hockey for me but plenty of cycling, jogging, yardwork etc, etc , with no problems.
He has helped my family and friends in similar fashion. Give him a call!
I have worked with Michael Holland for the last three years. He approaches health and fitness coaching from a holistic perspective. Recently I needed total knee replacement surgery on both knees. I believe this a result of running to many half and full marathons many years ago.
Michael and I prepared for the surgery, and he worked with me after the surgeries. This focused treatment paid off, both my doctor and I have been very pleased with how rapidly the knees healed, and how I was able to increase my activity quickly. The engagement with Michael was instrumental to this quick recovery. I can highly recommend his work.
One year ago, I started doing Qi Gong on a weekly basis.
After many years of surfing my shoulders developed severe restrictions, with grinding and clicking.
Through the flowing styles and movements, coupled with focused breathing, my shoulders move freely. Also, my overall strength and endurance has increased.
Michael has helped me with some knee surgery preparation and recovery strategies using Qi Gong routines. It has really helped!
Michael’s ability to change lives is nothing short of Amazing. His gentle, yet powerful integrated approach to training and conditioning allowed me to achieve my dream of running a ½ marathon after only a few months of training. He uses his breadth of knowledge of sports physiology, nutrition and spiritual mindfulness at each session. By combining a multitude of techniques including carefully planned running regimes, pool work, and stretching sessions, he unlocked the athlete in me.
Qigong has provided me with a mental framework with which to face the day and its unexpected events with a greater degree of calmness. I would like to share with you what has for me been a very unexpected benefit. I was a competitive swimmer for many years through high school and college. I realized recently, after one of our sessions, that the practice of Qigong has improved how I breathe when I swim the crawl. As a result of the Qigong you taught me, and the specific breathing patterns I learned in the process, I was automatically using those same breathing patterns while swimming. I am now able to swim much more easily and efficiently—and it has enabled me to swim for a significantly longer time. Many thanks!
I have known coach Holland for more than six years. Michael was highly recommended to me when I was looking for a trainer to help my son with his conditioning and golf game. He helped him with all aspects of his game – he ended up becoming the top player in his high school team in his senior year. Subsequently he worked with my younger son on his soccer skills and eventually with me directly as I was working through some lower backpain issues that prevented me from running as much as I had grown accustomed to. In general, I like and appreciate Michael’s attention to details of the individual’s desires/goals relative to their existing physical condition and constraints concentrating on long-lasting results – not trading off risks of injury/reinjury for short-term gain.
I’ve also been impressed with how Michael strives to stay up to date with the latest trends in exercise, healing and nutrition to bring valuable insights, tools and techniques to his clients.
Specifically, the things that worked for me best were: core strengthening and stretching (Active Isolated Stretching-AIS) (for my back), TRX training (general conditioning) mixed with cardio and pool exercises.
I have recommended Michael to other friends – you won’t be disappointed.
Michael gently and respectfully helps clients attain their maximum wellness and fitness potentials by recognizing and attending to the unison of mind-body-spirit. My path towards wellness includes nutritional guidance, Qi Gong, massage, trigger point therapy, Muscle Activation Technique, and more. I’ve progressed to the point that my body happily experiences a workout that Coach Michael Holland continuously progresses on the TRX Suspension Trainer and with the use of other training modalities. From providing corrective treatment to progressing a client intelligently, I have Michael to thank. He is ever seeking to evolve his work and inspires me to pursue the art of wellness with the bar set high.
Coach Holland gave me a direction in my physical fitness that was custom tailored to my physical needs and my goals in golf. He played an instrumental part of preparing me for college golf. The training in high school gave me an upper hand once I got to college. Now, I currently hold the highest certification in Golf for the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI).
The programs and exercises that Coach a Holland prescribed years ago, are very similar to the fitness programs of the TPI, that are built for rotational athlete. I would highly recommend Coach Holland to anyone who is looking for results in their sports performance.
I have been a fitness professional for over a decade, and have also competed at a high level of athletics -Olympic trials for boxing, Colorado Springs 2012. I started working with Michael Holland 4 months ago, and a whole new world of awareness was opened to me. Michael has taught me how to access more from myself; physically, mentally and spiritually; to become the best “Me” I have ever been. Not only would I suggest Michael to individuals of all levels of fitness, from those recovering from surgery/injuries all the way to top tier athletes, I would even send my mother to train with him….And I have!
