My name is Michael Farach and I am a certified kickboxing instructor, personal fitness trainer and sports nutritionist. I am a mobile service company that trains clients in the convenience of their home. I've been serving the city of Ottawa since 2012.
Over the last several years I have focused on improving the quality of life for my clients. My passion is to work in the health and fitness industry to help individuals lead a healthier lifestyle. My commitment is to design a workout program which will not only help participants reach their goals, but achieve their personal best through safe, effective, challenging, fun workouts which will be educational and informative. Each training session should be a meaningful experience and life changing. Living a healthy lifestyle requires dedication to the fullest.
To make a full body transformation, one must understand the importance of exercise AND nutrition. As a certified sports nutritionist I will also guide you in making the proper nutritional choices needed to fuel and recover your body. Keep in mind that transformation does not happen overnight, but with a little dedication from you and 100% commitment from me, together we will reach your goals!

Personal fitness training is a great way to stay focused and committed to your workout program. Having a certified professional guide you to reach your fitness goals is also the safest approach to exercising because you learn proper technique.

What's better then training in-doors? Training out-doors in the fresh air on a nice sunny day! Over the last several years, I trained a variety of clients for some out-door training.

As a personal trainer, I have plenty of mobile training equipment that I bring with me such as; boxing equipment (boxing gloves, punch mitts, punching bag & reflex bag), dumbbells (2-24 lbs), resistance bands, step-board, stability balls, agility ladder, exercise mat, etc.

I converted my backyard into a private gym where I have been training clients since 2012! The area is spacious to train, 100' x 40'. The entire yard is secluded with 12 ft tall cedar trees which makes training private from onlookers. The yard comes fully equipped with a portable punching bag, reflex bag along with strength training equipment such as dumbbells ranging from 2 lbs - 40 lbs, step board, resistance bands, stability balls, Bosu ball, agility ladder, exercise mats, etc. My training facility is located in Orleans, east end of Ottawa, just minutes away from Place D'Orleans mall. Parking is available!
RENTING SPACE AT A COMMUNITY CENTRE / COMPLEX
In my experience, exercising in the setting of a complex or community centre is a safe and comfortable environment while performing training sessions. The days and times are dependent on the availability of the complex/community centre.
