Famous Clients

"Drew. Just wanted to take a moment to say: Thank You! I had a great time working out with you and you are a great trainer, man! I just want you to know how much I appreciate your work and time."
- Christian Slater 2016
  • Christians 2016 Workout Regime with Drew:
  • 3x per week x 6 months of weights and high intensity circuit training in preparation for his award winning Mr. Robot series. 
I’ve been a big fan since his incredible film “True Romance”. So training with Christian was an amazing experience. I pushed him hard and he liked the new challenges in every workout. He is strong and in great shape- and even more so a few months in. And just as I thought, he’s a really cool guy.

"This guy (Alfie Boe) is a beast when it comes to his craft as a musician and his fitness",  I had a blast training with Alfie!  - Keeping him lean, conditioned,  and strong for all the hard work that he does on and off Broadway, and concert stages across the world. 
- Drew Michael 2016
  • Watch Tony Award Winner Alfie Boe in action with Drew here. 
It was a pleasure getting to know Alfie, and I had no idea how incredibly talented he was when we met. Getting to know him, he is such a hard worker in and out of the gym. Fitness is super important to him, and I was extremely flattered that he chose me to be his trainer.
— Drew Michael

Testimonials

On the day we met and on our first training session, I knew Lia had a lot of work ahead. She was very limited on stamina, strength, and range of motion. But I saw a real passion in her eyes for change. She worked harder than anyone I have ever worked with. And I watched her transform from zero conditioning to a strong amazing athlete- Completing the Spartan race in 2016! Respect, admiration, and inspiration to the highest degree.
— Drew Michael
Drew and I have been training for 3 years. I have lost lost 126lbs to date, toned immensely, and gained a lot of strength and muscle. When we first started this fitness journey I could barely do any exercise without being completely exhausted and not enough strength..  I am so happy of how far Ive come and how great I feel today. I know without Drew's training and motivation, I would not have been nearly as successful in my transformation.
