As a professional Strength & Conditioning Coach, my passion is to guide people towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations. With my degree in Exercise Physiology, I understand training and the human body's physiological response to it from a deep, scientific level, and am able to develop intelligent lesson plans accordingly. My plan is to help you transform and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health and well being.

Resistance training is a systematic program of exercises involving exertion of force against a load with the goal of developing strength, endurance and/or hypertrophy of the muscular system. Resistance training is used for a wide variety of reasons, to improve overall health, improve athletic performance, rehabilitate an injury, or compete in power lifting or bodybuilding contest. Resistance training is a recommended component of a well rounded fitness program for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.
HRT: HEART RATE TRAINING
Heart Rate Training is a scientifically proven method of conditioning. Certain Heart rate parameters will elicit a physiological response therefore creating new physiological adaptations. These adaptations can be utilized for sports specific training that the sport demands as well as non sports individuals.
Movement for Kids
Kids need to move and move often. These sessions are designed to allow a child to move freely in space with expression, while analyzing patterns that may need work. Utilizing games and exercises, we accomplish and optimize better patterns for great movement. These sessions are done barefoot as to allow the mechanoreceptors’ in the foot to read the surface of the ground. This teaches kids how to utilize the ground for better movement. We also use 'Vestibular system 'exercises, which is another technique to teach kids balance, stability and spacial awareness. This will help them better assess their surroundings for confident movement.
VBT: VELOCITY BASE TRAINING
Velocity base training uses velocity as a biometric feedback tool to gauge your weight training. Velocity output helps dictate how much load you should be adding or removing on a particular set. It’s a similar concept to heart rate training zones - stick to a certain training zone and reap the physiological benefits associated with that zone.
The purpose is to decrease stress and improve strength gains by identifying what type of training and nutrition is best for you. That’s done by taking a look at what controls everything in your body — your central nervous system & neurotransmitter balance. There is an assessment that will put you into a “type”. There are 5 types — 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, and 3. Each type has a word tied to it which describes your personality and training methods.
Hear What Others Have to Say
My name is Eli Stoner and I am a 20 year old soccer player and student at the University of Indianapolis. I have been working with Michael from Elev8 Strength and Conditioning 1 on 1 since last summer to become a better athlete. Recently, I sprained my ankle badly playing soccer and during my next 1 on 1 session with Michael he evaluated it and provided me with rehab work and knowledge on what I should be doing to heal it. Due to the exercises Michael provided, within 2 weeks my ankle had healed and now we are working on strengthening it. A typical ankle sprain such as this would have an athlete out 3-5 weeks. However, through Micheal's knowledge and professional approach, I was able to get back on field in almost half the time!

Postural restoration is a posture based approach to physical medicine. It improves postural adaptations, the function of the respiratory system and asymmetrical patterns.This technique improves breathing mechanics, including diaphragmatic function.
