Article care of www.star-interviews.com
Who was the first person to tell you to get into better
MIKE: My father - I shot up in height and he thought
it was time to thicken up a little so he bought me some
weights when I was in grade 7.
What directed your attention to your first diet?
MIKE: In my grade 12 year of high school (back in 1977,
groan), I came across an issue of MUSCLEMAG - I didn't
even know they existed until then. I bought it and came
upon an article by Vince Gironda . . He ranted lots
but wrote with impact that got me from the get go.

Ever buried something somewhere secret?
MIKE: My kid brother and I buried a "time capsule" of
class photos from elementary school when we were little
(the house is gone now).
I did the same thing. I wonder if it will ever be found.
What's your craziest experience?
MIKE: I worked as a bouncer for a summer at Toronto's
GASWORKS (a heavy metal bar in
Wayne's World). A huge fight erupted one night with
a local bike club . . . It was so bad, I quit later
Tell me about the best workout you ever had:
MIKE: My workout partner Dennis and I stacked Ultimate
Orange and Ripped Fuel - We
did chest and arms for almost two hours and spoke like
we were high on Benny's . . I ended up sleeping for
two days after, laughs.
Tell me the hardest workout you ever had:
MIKE: To your credit, I recently did a full body; one
exercise, one set per part, total failure where the
last reps were about 30 seconds to finish and I was
so shot, I went to bed at 7:00 pm that night.
Anything embarrassing happen when you were trying to
look cool? What?
MIKE: Lee Aaron and her band were playing the Gasworks
when I worked there - I did my best to impress her but
she was not interested in an 18 year old bouncer! Yeah
that was it . . But it was only my age . . Oh, yeah!
Your biggest lie:
MIKE: At a young age I learned that the lies come back
and bite you in the butt! I've got to say since about
age 20 - I've been a pretty straight shooter, the odd
white lie sure, but not that I'd admit to any of them!
Grossest thing you ever ate:
MIKE: Smoked eel! Ugh! Salty, oily and never again.
Your actual job title:
MIKE: Elite Trainer and Nutrition Consultant at GoodLife
Fitness Clubs, Downtown Toronto, Canada
How did you meet your significant other?
Your most frequent question asked:
MIKE: What can I do to lose this last inch?
Is there a piece of exercise equipment you hate to use?
MIKE: Anything cardio. I was always a sprinter / power
athlete and not comfortable at all with endurance work.
What makes you smile the widest?
MIKE: Contributing to the betterment of others. Definitely.
I mean really making a difference in someone's life
Your crowning achievement is?
MIKE: A bit of self-actualization. It's been a trying
year for me and those I held dearest in my life. BUT
realizing that I'll make it, no matter what life's hurdles
will come my way and that I've done my best to help
those I care for the most. The realization, the "epiphany"
itself. That was my crowning
Tell me a joke:
MIKE: I'd rather a bottle in front of me than a frontal
Favorite good for you meal:
MIKE: Sirloin salad with a little creamy garlic dressing
and bacon bits
Favorite BAD meal and restaurant:
MIKE: Carrot cake from the Dessert in Toronto
What diets have you tried and why did they fail?
MIKE: The Anabolic diet, Parillo's diet (no more MCT's
please), the Zone diet, Eat Right 4 Your Type diet,
Colgan's recommendations, Body For Life and all left
me with indigestion and a full burpy feeling from the
improper meal mixing . . and the fat intakes left me
When was and what was your last workout?
MIKE: Whole body, one set to failure, lifting 4 seconds
up, 4 seconds down, reps around 12 BUT made for 20 reps
and that one set has left me sore for days later! OUCH!

was a dichotomy.
