“It is important to know the difference between fitness expressions and evidence-based practice. Education and science are key to level up human performance physically.”
Online Coaching, Programming, and Consulting
In this day and age of information overload, I believe that the best coaches and trainers don’t simply pass on more information, but rather act as a filter by only transmitting the relevant information. Therefore, my goal is only to give clear, targeted, and actionable training direction that saves my audience time and money.
I provide specialized athletes with sound training protocols that will keep them injury-free while enhancing their athletic abilities in sports like baseball, softball, soccer, track and even strongman.
I help other fitness professionals bridge the gap between research studies and practical application. This is accomplished by my ability to read complex studies and explain the outcomes in easier-to-understand terms so that other coaches and trainers can achieve better results for their clients through evidence-based programming.
"There are few people in this industry that have not only walked the walk as a world class strength and conditioning specialist at the highest levels of sport and fitness but have the elite education to back up their methods. Dr. Mike is the type of innovative thinker who take take-real world problems in the gym, and back up the solution with the science. And that is the future of fitness and sports performance."
"Jonathan Mike combines a scientific knowledge of training with years practical experience and teaches in a down to earth and simplified manner. He’s a true benefit to the fitness and conditioning field, and someone I recommend as a reliable and valuable training resource to learn from.”
"Dr. Mike sets himself apart from countless researchers in the space due to his unique ability to not only contribute to great research, but also by making it highly practical to today’s strength coach. Whenever I need a quick overview of what’s changed in the research on a given topic, Jon is on a short-list of those I reach out to in order to make sure I’m staying current. In other words, he’s the antithesis of an “ivory tower” academic."
"Jonathan Mike is one of the best in the business and he practices what he preaches! Jonathan is someone I personally have learned from for years. Not many people in this industry have the entire spectrum. The guy has it all, he's an experienced coach, published researcher, avid lifter, thoughtful teacher, and effective communicator!"
"I highly recommend Dr. Mike’s site for timely and scientifically sound information on training. He delivers a 1-2 punch of science and practical application."
"I was very flattered when Dr. Mike asked me to write a testimonial for his website. That being said, I would never agree to write a testimonial for someone I did not genuinely believe in and support! Jon really checks off most of my boxes: genuine, authentic, and bright as heck. I was able to be a co-contributor to a sport science blog with Dr. Jon over the past few years, and he brings a ton of value to his audience with his experience not only talking the talk but walking the walk as well. He does a fantastic job of presenting relevant and useful information to a wide audience, and anyone who gets to learn from him (including myself) should consider themselves very lucky!"
“Working with Dr. Jon Mike is a great experience. He is fabulously talented and knowledgeable about training but more importantly technique and how the body should maneuver. It is rare these days to find an individual that has both high level competition experience and intelligence at the doctorate level along with his countless certifications and articles that he has published. It is a pleasure to work with Jon and learn from his years of experience and knowledge.”
