I visited a couple of orthopedic surgeons to address a torn lateral meniscus in my knee and did not come away with a high degree of confidence that the solutions presented (including surgery) would be effective. I had previous strength training sessions with Mike Hardy, who recommended that I consider ARP Wave Therapy. After consulting with Dave Grove, I was presented with a training program to address the underlying cause of my knee issue. After 10 ARP Wave therapy sessions I am able to run and play ice hockey pain free. Mike and Dave at Medical Fitness and Wellness are very professional and knowledgeable about the science of fitness and were able to recommend proper exercise techniques to achieve my fitness goals. I would also recommend Medical Fitness and Wellness to anyone that is looking for expert advice on fitness and sports injury as well as a refresher on proper workout form to reduce the risk of future injury.
Mike has helped me tremendously over the past 6 months to improve shoulder function and build upper body strength to avoid injuries. The corrective exercise program was just what I needed to get started and now I've moved up to personal training and am seeing great results. He is very knowledgeable and is able to tailor an exercise program to just what I need. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
I have been helped so much by these guys. I am in my mid fifties and was totally unfit when I first met Mike and Sam. I made some great progress but then suffered aknee and elbow inflammation due to illness. They stepped up and helped me get through that and I'm back to full exercise. The key thing for me is that when I exercise there is an "expert" one step away. If you have some injury they work around it but also work to fix it. The holistic view they have, diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, really makes a difference. I used to feel like "A tub of lard", now I can exercise for an hour and walk out feeling better than when I arrived. It's a great feeling. Let me add this. I've had bad days, when my body just did not want to exercise and my ability to press through was not there. I got a lot of support through those days - I always feel uplifted. There is a kind of scoreboard which shows calories "spent" in exercise. I just got into the top 10%. It was such a great feeling. Give this a go.. what do you have to lose?
I met Mike Hardy when my health had spun out of control and I finally decided to make a life change. I struggle with limited range of motion in both knees, have had partial knee replacements on both knees about 4 years ago, had lost a lot of my flexibility post-surgery due to inactivity, and had really let my weight get out of control. I wanted someone that was well educated in their field and brought on well-educated folks to work with them. Mike not only fit that bill really well, but has been extremely easy to work with. He has been more than patient with me as we have worked through my physical limitations and has challenged me more than I have ever been challenged. Mike sees the benefit of having the whole body functioning well and is helping me work toward achieving that. Mike is an excellent motivator. Even when I don't think I will ever get there, Mike keeps a positive attitude and keeps encouraging me with what can be one day. He is creative in the exercise workouts, tailoring them to pain issues, chronic problems, or weight loss goals, and continuously mixes it up so it doesn't feel like a routine. I have been following the nutrition and fitness programs for just over eight months and I am down 80 pounds. My family, friends and co-workers see such a difference in me, in how well I move, how much I move, and my drive to stay active. You won't find a nicer guy, or a more knowledgeable one, to help you achieve your health goals, regardless of the challenges you have faced in the past. Mike Hardy is the best phone call you will make to change the rest of your life for the better. Medical Fitness and Wellness Group will exceed your expectations on your journey to better health. If you ever want to talk with me about how Mike has helped me make significant changes through fitness and nutrition, just leave your number with Mike and I will call you.
Dealing with Mike and everyone at Medical Fitness & Wellness Group was a great experience! Everyone is very professional and it's a caring and positive.
Corrective exercise sessions have been very helpful.... Mike's program has had a positive impact in a short period of time. The ARP Wave Therapy for my hands and knees has also produced positive results. I look forward to starting my personal training program and continuing my ARP Wave Therapy sessions.
Those of you who know me know my health has suffered greatly over the last few years. Just six weeks ago I was jolting and falling to my knees at the bank, sometimes up to 2-3 times an hour. Today I am extremely grateful that GOD lead me to my personal trainer Mike Hardy! He has done amazing things since we have been working together!!!! He has changed not only my physical health, but my mental health has improved also. I no longer jolt. My chronic back pain is gone. I know GOD is working through Mike to should me how my faith in him is prevailing! I woke up this morning wondering where would I be if I would have listened to the doctor that told me my heart was failing, I only had a year to live. Don't let anyone ever tell you something is impossible. A year ago I would never believe I would get up 3 days a week at 445 am to work out with a personal trainer who is so totally awesome and actually knows what he is doing!!! If someone had a time capsule and told me I would have given them a blank stare like dude your CRAZY!!! Let alone, believe I would ever get Kerry to try him also. Friends please, I encourage you, if you live in the Atlanta area and know anyone who is struggling to improve their health share my story. Give him a call!!!! He is a true miracle in disguise My BOB HARPER!!!
I started going to Mike because I needed to strengthen my back and improve flexibility. Since I have been going to Mike I am able to work out without my back being in pain. My sleep has improved due to not having a back ache anymore. My flexibility has also greatly improved well beyond my expectations. Mike has greatly improved my mobility in life. In the past I was getting numerous injections in my back a couple times a year. But with the program Mike has me doing for my back I have not had to go in for any more injections. All I can say Mike really knows what he is doing and is a great trainer.
I originally started with Mike in April 2016 for corrective exercise to help with chronic pain issues and within 6 weeks was feeling so much better I graduated to personal training! I am now so much stronger and basically pain free. When I do have pain flare ups Mike has given me the tools to treat them quickly. And the workouts are always different and "fun" :).
Seeking out Mike to be my personal trainer was the best decision I ever made. At my age(over 50), I knew I needed to work out the right way with someone who really knows what they are doing. Mike's knowledge & experience are evident, not to mention he is such a nice guy. After a month of corrective exercise to de-stress & strengthen my body, I was ready to safely pursue personal training. After 4 months of seeing Mike just 2 days a week, I have lost 2 pant sizes & about 10 lbs. What's more important is how great I feel: stronger & less fatigued. His rates are very affordable for this area. I plan to work up to 3 days a week in the New Year. I have told many people about Mike & would recommend him as a personal trainer to anyone. He is destined for great success with Medical Fitness & Wellness. I can not forget to mention Tatiana. She is one of the best, most experienced massage therapists I have ever been treated by. She & Mike make a great team together to provide outstanding fitness & wellness!!!!
OK. Can I tell you just how awesome Mike Hardy is? I recently moved to the Cumming area. Prior to moving I had been working out with a personal trainer 3-4 times/week for the past 3+ years. I had absolutely no hope that I would find a trainer as reliable and wonderful as the one I had been working with in my home town. Well, not only did I find a new trainer (Mike Hardy) but I found someone who is not only keeping me in shape (I recently lost over 125+ lbs) but also who has improved my workouts and has reduced my pain/injuries as well!! He has a repertoire of training techniques like none I've ever seen AND he focuses on my wellbeing as much as my figure! LOL! Meaning he knows the body/muscle structure and heals my aches/pains through corrective exercises to keep my body in the best shape ever. If you're looking for someone to help with building the body you've always wanted then Mike is your man. If you're looking for someone to help you with back, neck, shoulder, leg, etc. pain/injuries then Mike is your man. I just about never provide feedback/recommendations but in Mike's case I just had to tell my story. He's the best. Jump on board before he's no longer available because he will be booked up fast. Best of luck to you in transforming your body and taking fitness to a new level
I did Redcord and other excercise with Mike. He is an amazing therapist! I have been able to get back to many activities and feel stronger over all.
What a difference Mike has made to my health and fitness! I started a couple months ago, dropped weight, lowered my body fat percentage and improved my well being! I highly recommend Mike and his methods for keeping you motivated and on the right path! Thanks Mike!
Medical Fitness and Wellness Group --this is a GREAT group of professionals who have your best interest in their hands. I can testify that when I walked in their doors on October 17, 2018, I found the most caring individuals who have joined me in my journey to become healthier and smarter about nutrition, body strengthening, corrective exercise to overcome chronic pain, more mobility and better wellness of body and mind. I reached 2 of the goals that I set for myself... I lost 40 lbs by July 4th and my A1C dropped from 11.2 to 5.4 and no longer in diabetic range or in need of medication. THANK YOU, Mike and Sam, for all your encouragement and commitment to all you do. I am grateful!!
Every now and then you meet people who are truly great at their job. Mike Hardy is one of those. In addition to being a personal trainer, he it's also a medical exercise specialist - turns out that's a boring name for the fascinating specialty of how bodies ideally function, and how to correct any imbalances. After seeing him for 3 weeks now, I feel significantly stronger, more flexible and genuinely enjoy the personal training sessions.
My results with Mike and Lilia exceeded my expectations. Mike trained me biweekly and was keenly aware of where me weaknesses were and helped me gain strength and endurance without injuring myself. If he saw that I was tight, he made sure that I stretched accordingly. No two workouts were alike and using my heart rate as a guide I effectively burned 300-500 calories per workout. Lilia educated me nutritionally and staying on track with my eating plan was achievable. It is clear to me now how to portion my food and combine protein, fats, and carbohydrates to achieve satiety and energy to carry me through my days. If I go back to old habits, it won't be because they didn't properly educate and inform me what is and what is not proper for both fitness and nutrition. Investing in myself financially through Medical Fitness & Wellness Group was one of the wisest investments I've made.
I started seeing Mike because of my neck, back, and some general joint pains. The morning after my very first appointment I could already feel a huge improvement. Mike is a very knowledgeable trainer and likes to tackle the source of a problem instead of simply treating the pain.
Mike and the staff are first rate. Very knowledgable and comprehensive. Whatever your issue, they will put together a great treatment plan.
I came to Medical Fitness with no level of fitness to speak of. Mike has worked with me for several weeks both nutritionally, as well as physically. My fitness level has increased dramatically in just a few weeks. I feel stronger and my clothes sizes are dropping. Best yet is I don't feel deprived and these kinds of results help me to maintain a positive outlook. I highly recommend Mike and Medical Fitness & Wellness Group to anyone looking to "get healthy". He knows his stuff and thoroughly enjoys what he does.
The personal attention and custom approach to my corrective exercise and nutrition program exceeded my expectations. I'm sure it will be one of the best investments I've ever made.
I started going to Medical Fitness about 4 months ago and my results are amazing. I've exercised most of my life but never stretched and it definitely caught up with me. But Mike at Medical Fitness has managed to limber me up ...I wholeheartly recommend him.
I can't say enough about, Mike Hardy, and his, "Medical Fitness and Wellness Group." I had a friend tell me about Mike's facility after I confided to her how frustrated I was at not being able to lose weight. When I started with Mike I told him that I would like to lose 15 lbs. within a 3-month period. My son's wedding was coming up! I thought that there was a VERY slim chance that I would succeed at this goal. Mike seemed confident. Well, I lost the 15 lbs. in 3-months, after trying to lose at least 5 lbs. for years!!! Mike helped me accomplish this goal through strength training, and a further education towards my diet! I never thought this was possible, and I am now armed with the knowledge of how to go forward to continue my new life style, which has greatly enhanced my life!!
I've been going to Mike for over a year. At first we started with Red Cord therapy and when I was stronger in my lower back I graduated to training. I've had back issues my whole life and can't rely on a regular gym trainer. Mike has helped to bring me back to my strength and flexibility without compromising my back situation.
I went to Mike @ Medical Fitness & Wellness Group in late August 2017 for help in improving my walk and controlling my knee pains. Mike put me through corrective exercise regime using the redcord equiment. He has a proven method to use massage, stretching, and corrective exercise to help fix the pain issues and improve your life. He is very patient in troubleshooting the source of pain that frankly I did not get from MD doctors who charged me over $500/hr consulting fees. I recommend this business who have similar problems like mine.
I cannot say enough good things about the team at Medical Fitness and Wellness. My husband's primary care doctor was amazed at the improvement in his blood sugar levels, blood pressure and his weight loss after many failed attempts with other diet programs. His Dr. has taken him off two meds and plans to take him off a third soon. The nutrition program is a healthy, easy, no nonsense approach to eating. It has worked great for both of us and my fitness level is so much better than when I started six weeks ago. I have been told I will need both hips replaced in the future but their approach to workouts has eliminated the pain and strengthened my whole body. Mike and Ana have been great with nutrition and fitness and Dr. Lambert's treatment plan has eliminated the headaches I was experiencing due to neck issues. I highly recommend this group if you are ready to get healthy and fit!
My mom brought me to Medical Fitness to help my posture with my hunched shoulders and to pull in my protruding right scapula. I am a volleyball player and use my right arm more extensively then my left. Dan and Mike created a dual program to get spine in line and improve my posture. Together then accomplished both. They also gave me exercises to do at home to continue my progress. Dan and Mike were excellent to work with, both very knowledgeable in their field and very personable.
