What matters is not so much my credentials (which, yes!, I have, as you can see in my profile bio), but the success of my students. Those successes are my real credentials. Here are some:

And some written testimonials and class reviews:
“My 13 year old was slightly reluctant – as I signed him up without his input. He thought the session was beneficial and was happy that he participated. I’ve been looking at the follow up information from Michael, and it is very impressive.”
–Tc C., Outschool parent “Physical Fitness: How To Build It,” 25 Mar 2020

“My daughter was able to 'teach back' lots of good running tips and clearly was very engaged throughout the class. She’s looking forward to implementing what she learned in the coming days.”
–Sirid, Outschool parent, “Physical Fitness: Good Running Technique,” 27 Feb 2020

“My son, who loves running and doing track really enjoyed this class and was excited to share some of the new tips that he learned.”
–Amanda R., Outschool parent, “Physical Fitness: Good Running Technique,” 28 Mar 2020

“Another amazing and fun [MovNat fitness] class! Thank you for doing this.”
–Birgitta J, business professional, 2021

“My son loved this class! It is a very different type of exercise using functional movement. He thought it was very creative and fun. Kids who don’t love vigorous exercise but want to get moving would like this one I think.”
–An Outschool parent “Functional Fitness (Half Hour Group Class),” 4 Jun 2020

“My daughter loves to run but has never had anyone explain the best way to do it in order to get the most out of it and avoid injury, etc. This was the perfect class for her. As soon as she was finished, she demanded I take her out for a run so she could try out some of the tips and tricks she learned. Good class!”
–Jennifer M., Outschool parent, “Physical Fitness: Good Running Technique,” 26 Mar 2020

Carlton S: "Exercising in the woods with Michael has benefited me more than any other type of workout that I have done with any trainer. I enjoy the natural movements and the unlimited variety of exercises that Michael routinely exhibits in the outdoors. Climbing trees, carrying logs and asymmetrical objects, learning to balance on uneven surfaces, and strengthening ligaments, rather than just muscles, are unique exercises Michael utilizes. He is more than just your typical trainer as he covers your overall well-being. I am a freshman on the LSU football team and can attest that Michael is an excellent strength coach.”

Matthew H: “Gold Academy is an experience unlike anything I was expecting. Coming from a background of physical contact sports such as hockey and football, I wanted to get myself back into form, without a florescent lighting tan, without aggravating previous injuries from the glory days. Being outside was the greatest reward, and the challenge I was looking for. Michael was with me every step of the way, building routines for with me and for me, helping me to build my body correctly and avoid injuries. This is not a boot camp for those who need someone mindlessly yelling in your face. This was an in depth structured experience, for me to be my own drill sergeant, because that is where true success lies, in becoming the best version of yourself. Starting off simply, then constantly challenging yourself to master simplicity, until your skills are your foundation. This a custom tailored experience, and I recommend Michael's expertise and logical approach. Be prepared to learn with Michael, he's a great teacher and an invaluable resource of knowledge. Be prepared to be immersed in nature. Be prepared to bring your mind, body, diet, and thinking to new levels. I recommend the Gold Academy experience for all those looking to build the best self version they achieve. Get out of the box and get involved!”

Joseph S: "Michael Gold is an awesome trainer. His workouts are designed to improve all elements of fitness: coordination, strength, stamina, mobility, just to name a few.

"Back in college I did a year of CrossFit and later on went through weight lifting programs with trainers at my gym. Michael has definitely been #1 when it came to proper form and joint/ligament strengthening. I trained with Michael for about 7 months and I saw huge improvements in my endurance and fitness. I felt better overall and even had some surprising benefits. I now effortlessly make baskets when throwing paper into my garbage bin, whereas, before working with Michael, I would always miss. And I am now much more aware of my environment, which especially helps when driving.

"He is big on safety and makes sure he trains to match people's fitness levels whatever they may be. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to improve their fitness and well-being in whatever capacity."
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
