Mark moved out to California from South Carolina to train with us last year. He was a very successful pole vaulter in college and decided to have a go at the professional ranks.
When I first met Mark, he told me he was already "pretty fit". The picture on the left was taken after the workout on day 1. He was unable to do much of the lifting in college due to a back issue. With some help from our physical therapist, we were able to fix the problem and get training underway.
By April, Mark had deadlifted 475lbs and jumped 17'10 (new personal best). And best of all, his back issue was completely gone.
Mark is continuing his journey with us. His hopes are to make it to the USA Track & Field Nationals this year where he needs to jump 18'0. We wish him luck.
"Working with Foundation Health and Michael has been a life-changing experience for me. His methods, professional approach and motivational skills are nothing short of extraordinary."
"I had no idea I could be this fit! Michael took me from a skinny 130 pound weakling to a buff and strong 155. I am just a normal guy- not a professional athlete like some of the guys he trains- and I get to have a body like this. Wahoo!" —Jeremy
"As an elite athlete for the last 15 years (all state track athlete, a part of a college national record 4x400 team, national qualifier in half ironman triathlon, course record holder in adventure racing, and olympic hopeful in decathlon), I have had my fair share of coaches and training styles. Foundation Health & Performance is the real deal. You will be hard pressed to ever find a program that yields the same results. If you don't believe me, ask the dozens of olympic caliber athletes and NFL players that have trained with me under the care of founder, Michael LoBue. His skill ranges from helping the elderly regain movement and alleviate pain, to making the greatest athletes in the world even better. Don't be dumb; train at Foundation."
"Especially if your serious about what your doing, there is no place that is more fit to make you meet your goals, and in all likelihood, surpass them. They have an amazing staff that is qualified and friendly, but as, if not more determined than you are. Hands down, the best place to develop and to find your true potential."
"I started with Foundation Health right before my junior year in high school. I was a tall skinny awkward pole vaulter who was not very strong, now after working with Foundation, I have grown into the California State Champion in pole vault, #2 in the country for high schoolers and #5 in the world for ages 15-16. Foundation has pushed me to become a better person and a stronger person who can get stuff done. Foundation is an awesome program and you should train here :)"
"The workouts designed by Foundation Health & Performance are different each time. Each workout is specifically designed to help accomplish my long term goals by focusing on the individual exercises. Motivation is key and the people at Foundation keep your fitness goals squarely in sight to keep me moving in the right direction. I feel better now than I have in many years."
"Foundation has something for everyone. If you're a high performance athlete looking to take it to the next level, looking to make your workouts more effective and efficient, getting back into shape, looking to become more healthy, or are in need of physical therapy and athletic rehab. Michael can do it all."
"Foundation Health has the knowledge and know-how to get you fit while keeping workouts fun and exciting. Training with them, I was able to complete workouts containing exercises you won't ever be able to find in an every day gym. I never would have thought that I could flip a tractor tire that weighs almost three times my weight. Nor would I have thought I could squat twice my weight and then some."
"Not only does Foundation Health have up to date knowledge regarding personal fitness, he also is knowledgeable about which exercises are needed to rehabilitate athletes and non-athletes alike. I was suffering from knee pain for years because of unequal muscle distribution. After two months of training with Michael my pain was gone and has been for four years. Which is more than I can say for the over-paid physical therapist I used to go to."
"I am a busy mom of three young children and work full time. My work outs were here and there, but I decided this year to really invest in myself. I have tried many diets and cookie cutter trainers at the big gyms, but never felt like they made a difference."
"Mike at Foundation Health made a difference when I decided to give this fitness thing one last try. He was so knowledgeable in training and finding out what's the best training program for my body type. (Read his profile if you don't believe me). I have been only training with him for 3 months and I could not believe the results. Even my husband was skeptical until he started to see my transformation! I am a devoted Foundation Health customer for life now. "
"Mike is an excellent motivator and trainer who works with you to get the best results possible. I highly recommend Mike and Foundation Health to everyone I know. See it to believe it!"
"Great trainers! Great workouts! They do sports specific training as well as general strength and conditioning and you never have to worry about just being another person on the list of people they train that day. It definitely has that family feel to it!"
Great result-. My maxes have at least doubled since I started working with them!"
"The way Mike does his programs are so unique and cutting edge. The gains I have made in 2 months are awesome. I am 35 and went from doing 2 pullups to10 in that time. 10 is how many I did while playing division one football!"
