Michael Vargason has helped people lose accumulatively over 1000 pounds over the last 5 years. From CEO’s to 9-5ers’, he’s helped everyone accomplish their fitness goals.
Michael has helped hundreds of people overcome multiple issues ranging from being overweight, to being too skinny, to body image issues.
His goal is to help thousands of people find purpose in life through fitness, ultimately guiding them towards the light to see how amazing and fun the world of fitness & health can be.
After losing 40 lbs of fat then gaining 40 lbs of muscle, he felt it was selfish of him to keep all this power and knowledge to himself, so he studied and passed the ACE Personal Trainer Certification test so he can help others attain the confidence and happiness like he did!
Growing up Michael was heavily involved with sports. He played baseball for 15 years ending his career at Grossmont Community College where his overwhelming foot injuries from a few years back came back to haunt him. He also played football up until he was forced to quit in 8th grade from a back injury called Retrospondylolisthesis, where his 4th Lumbar Vertebrae shifted forward, causing his disc to bulge giving him a relentless case of Sciatica. Other sports he’s played throughout his life are Basketball and Wrestling.
His parents brought him up with love which drives his willingness to help others. With his parents splitting up at the age of 10, he never let that stop him from living his life. Being a huge family man, he enjoys his time spent with them at get togethers and holidays.
Always being an athlete you’d expect him to be in great shape but he was actually overweight and unhealthy up until high school. After graduating high school in 2014, he decided it was time to change that. He lost 40 lbs of pure fat! Starting just like everyone else he set out to start running. Being insecure, he ran the backroads of his neighborhood so he wouldn't be seen. Later down the road after losing some weight, he began lifting weights, where he ultimately transformed his entire life.
Going from lazy video game player, to a freelance personal trainer was one of the most courageous things he's ever done. Grateful for life, he takes on all challenges it brings.
For the past 3 years he's been perfecting the art of coaching people into becoming the best version of themselves. Teaching them that life is about making it what YOU want it to be; not your family, not your friends, but what YOU want it to be.
Now, he's living life with his beautiful girlfriend Nikki, and their Bluenose Pit, Koa.
"When you want to SUCCEED as bad as you want to BREATHE... THEN you will be successful."
