Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Whether training pro athletes like the Detroit Red Wings, movie stars like Thor’s Chris Hemsworth, or the soccer mom who lives next door, Mike Knight has become synonymous with getting in shape and achieving a new, more fit version of oneself. After the success of Knight’s Art of Strength West Bloomfield training center, the top Michigan personal trainer is now preparing to launch an expansive Birmingham location this spring.
“We thought Birmingham would suit us best,” says fellow Art of Strength trainer and co-owner Scott George. “It’s within ten miles of the original location, but we are still hitting a completely new demographic. We’re really excited about working, not only with Birmingham residents, but with people from Troy, Royal Oak and Bloomfield Township.”
With nearly 5000 square feet at their disposal inside the new location, Art of Strength is poised to become the go-to personal trainers in Birmingham. “Not only will we have all the equipment our West Bloomfield location has, but we’ll also have a full-blown boxing facility,” George explains. “Everyone always says, ‘I want to go boxing in Birmingham,’ but there hasn’t been anywhere to do it until now.”
The success of Art of Strength West Bloomfield and the opening of the Birmingham location can be tied directly back to the unique workout experience that’s offered by Knight and his team of personal trainers in Michigan. “It doesn’t matter who walks through our door,” he says. “We will find your goal and we will reach it.” By utilizing vintage strongmen tools like kettlebells, and working in newer suspension style training, Art of Strength has created an exercise regiment that combines both weightlifting and cardio into one.
With just over three weeks until the opening of the new Birmingham facility, the Art of Strength staff is primed and pumped to continue its muscular makeover of Southeastern Michigan. “Jiří Fischer of the Red wings once told me, ‘You know, Mike, there are a hundred ways to get there,’” recalls Knight. “So, if there are a hundred ways to reach your goal, we’ve got to make sure we find a route that’s demanding enough to get our clients where they want to be. It’s definitely a journey.”
