If you want to drastically improve what your body can do, there is no more direct or efficient route than working with a professional trainer.
Unlike a lot of groups out there, we’re extremely selective about the people we certify to teach GMB, so you can be confident that the GMB Trainers listed below have the skills and experience guide your training for better health and performance.

Life Made Stronger
For the last 10 years most people would call me a strength coach or personal trainer. My goal is to evolve into a teacher. I love working with anyone possessing a high level of intrinsic motivation to become a better human. My only rule is: you have to make progress toward your goals. If you’re making progress, keep cruising. If you’re not, try another way.
As someone who grew up uncoordinated and frankly, a bit of a wimp, Caleb’s hobbies now include choking people out in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and riding large waves in the Pacific Ocean. He is passionate about becoming a better coach and furthering his knowledge about the human body.
When Mike started using kettlebells and just his bodyweight to train, he started having way more fun with exercise. He discovered he was building strength he could use anytime and anywhere, not just at the gym. He also began to move better. As he kept training and learning, he naturally found GMB! Mike loves to help his students get stronger, healthier, and discover the fun in exercise. He co-owns a kettlebell and bodyweight based gym and has been in the fitness industry since 2009.
I grew up really active – ran track in high school and started martial arts in college. I got my degree in Cognitive Science, and right away I was fascinated with the brain. Mix that with my passion for movement and fitness, and I knew I was on to something. I’m a certified personal trainer with NASM, certified Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a certified sports and exercise nutritionist with Precision Nutrition, and a master practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming. I’ve dedicated my life to learning as much as I can about the mind and body connection, and helping people live life to their fullest potential.
Jeff’s personal interest in health, nutrition, and fitness led him to pursue and achieve a bachelor’s of science degree in Health and Human Performance.

Jeff is dedicated to helping people move better, with safety and control.

He’s an avid martial artist currently studying Hapkido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do. Andy also has experience with regular weight lifting, kettlebells, DVRT (sandbags) and various other training modalities.

GMB Trainers Surpass Industry Standard
Most fitness systems hand out certifications like candy.
All you need is a free weekend and a couple thousand dollars, and you too can be a fitness expert – Wow!
We decided not to go down that path. Instead, we set out to improve on the certification process in the most fundamental way by replacing the “certification seminar” with a minimum of three months of apprenticeship.
It’s a much more time-consuming process for us and for our trainer candidates, but the result is that we can recommend the individuals on this page with pride.
