Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, J-Mike grew up with a love of sports and fitness. In 1996, he attended Grambling State University to play baseball. After an unfortunate injury that ended his baseball career, J-Mike continued to pursue an education in fitness training.
After college, J-Mike worked as a fitness/coach and trainer and later as the Director of Fitness Operations for the French Rivera Spa. He also worked as a Recreational Therapist in the Chemical Dependency Program for adolescents at the Guillaume Center. Hurricane Katrina brought J-Mike to Houston, where he started working as a personal trainer at Bally Total Fitness in West University.
Today, J-Mike works with his clients at The Next Level Fitness.
Every Saturday, J-Mike offers his clients a class, which is, well, chaos! Each class is different, which keeps it fun and challenging. You can always expect, however, a combination of strength training and cardio moves and a total body work out that will leave you out of breath.
