I have been working out with Michael Meeker for 3 years. When I stared out ; I had no idea how to do anything. Michael would explain the form to me and I would try my best to duplicate it. Hold your head up, pull your shoulders back, butt down... Today it CLICKED!!!! I hit 220 for 3 deadlifts and actually felt my body do everything Michael has been telling me to do without thinking about it!! Thank you for your consistent coaching and encouragement !!!
Welcome back into the 1,000lb combined club
I have to give props to Michael Meeker. I had a very sore back Sunday & Monday, to the point where it was really hard to take a deep breath. A year ago, I would have text Michael that I was not going to workout Monday. But I sucked it up and went to workout yesterday and today. This morning my back felt a lot better and now after Tuesday's workout it doesn't hurt at all. Never thought I would be one to a make myself a priority, but I am so happy I did. Otherwise I am certain I would still have a sore back and probably a bad attitude.
Yeah yeah!

Round 2 of outdoor schooling after home schooling is done. @bigtreefitness #exploreyourownbackyard #activekidsarehappykids

What’s a rainy morning hike without skipping stones in the river. @bigtreefitness #summitcountymetroparks #activekidsarehappykids

If you are going to home school your kids the remainder of the year. Start out their day with physical movement before they sit for hours in front of a computer. The brain will be much more alert and receptive to learning. @bigtreefitness #staystrong #teachyourchildrenwell
