what I do
When my clients come to me and say that because of our training they are now walking through life with greater strength and confidence to physically handle their everyday lives, and not get beat up by the battle, that is when I feel their training has been successful. That is when the client, and myself, together as a training team have accomplished health and wholeness.
- 4 Rivers Life -
Training for your, Heart, Soul, Mind & Strength.
Hello, my name is Michael Lund. I am a personal trainer who works with a wide spectrum of clients. My clients have ranged in age from 8 to 92. I train people from all walks of life, from professional athletes to actors, business owners to lawyers, doctors to weekend warriors, handicapped to the bodybuilder, photographers to poets, to stay at home moms and even the occasional combination of all those in one person ;)
I train a wide variety of physical ailments as well, stroke and heart attack victims, back fusions, hip and knee replacements, wheelchair-bound, SI joint pain, shoulder injuries, and chronic neck and back pain, spinal stenosis, cancer, and many more.
I have a team mentality when it comes to training. My aim is to achieve clients' goals together, by working as a team to accomplish the goals they set for themselves. I see our training sessions as a partnership, a shared journey together to achieve their goals. It all starts with communication. A client tells me what they want to achieve and then we set out as a team to reach that goal together. During our sessions, I am constantly communicating how what we are doing is building the foundation to accomplish their goals.
I have personally had two shoulder surgeries, one on each shoulder and I have had knee surgery so I sympathize with pre and post-rehab. I have been educated and equipped with a unique skill set in training, which combines my rehab training background with my athlete training background. I have a college degree in Exercise Science and I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS). Being blessed to work with such a wide variety of people has given me the opportunity to use these unique skills throughout my 14 years as a personal trainer.
We train with my 4 Rivers philosophy of training. I believe that to attain real changes through training you have to accomplish health and wholeness in the total person. My training is designed to train a person's Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. These 4 parts of training must be developed together to honestly achieve health and wholeness, and
true life transformation.

How Can I Help You
Mike is outstanding as a person and as a trainer. He is able to asses your strengths & weaknesses and design an exercise program to fit your needs and goals. I often leave a workout with stressed muscles but never a strain or injury. He pushes you to the edge of your capabilities but never over the edge :)
Finally, his exercise program is different each workout, fun, and helpful in restoring many long standing issues. For example, (posture, strained painful joints, etc ...). Wow!!
For me, personal training has become a way of life. Every possible Monday, Wednesday and Friday I train with Michael. The experience has been better than any medical remedy could hope to provide. Never any back pain, issues with lifting, bending, reaching, posture, neck stiffness, nothing. At age 73, I believe that is quite an accomplishment, and all due to Michael’s careful attention to what is best for me, personally, for my body and my physical activities. I have many golfing friends (I too play golf) who are constantly complaining about their backs or elbows or you name it and take drugs (e.g. ibuprofen) to cure their ills. Yet all one really needs to do is go to Michael for one hour three times a week instead! Aside from his vast knowledge of how the body functions and how to apply this knowledge to fitness, he is a fine gentleman, fun to talk with and creates a very pleasant hour.
