Mike Miller

Morning Manager

Michael Miller lives his life committed to his family and health and fitness. His professional career as a Facilities Engineer in the Biotech Industry was cut short in 2012 when he was dealt a major setback in the shape of a spinal cord injury which rendered the left side of his body
incapacitated. Rather than concede to this condition Michael started working harder than ever, tackling physical therapy and exercise with his customary ”no excuses, no surrender” approach and today is in better shape than ever and has returned to fitness competition and physical fitness as a way of life. Michael is beyond excited to bring his resilience and enthusiasm to the Impact Fitness family and to help others reach their own fitness goals.
