Mike Holliday, PT, ATC, CSCS
Mike Holliday PT, ATC, CSCS has been involved in the fitness industry for over 24 years. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Therapy as well as Athletic Training/Exercise Physiology. He holds certifications from 3 nationally recognized associations as an Athletic Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Health Promotion Director and Personal Trainer.
Mike served with the West Virginia Army National Guard for 6 years, where he was responsible for the physical fitness of over 100 soldiers before, during and after Operation Desert Storm, both in the US, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait. He then served with the Naval Reserve, as an officer at Bethesda Naval Hospital, with the primary duty of Command Fitness Leader for nearly 400 reservists.
After working as a staff PT with a hospital based home health agency, Mike saw many “lifestyle” related disabilities, which may have been prevented. Additionally, Holliday volunteered as the athletic trainer for the local Phillip Barbour High School girls’ Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball, and has served for the last 8 years as a volunteer Athletic Trainer for boy’s football. When athletes were injured and needed formal therapy, they had to travel 25-50 miles for rehab. This prompted him to design and build a fitness center/PT clinic, with a focus on prevention first, through proper wellness and conditioning programs, as well as state of the art rehab.
Above all, Holliday believes in leading by example. Strength training 6 days per week and aerobic training 3-4 days, as well as strict attention to a healthy diet, are all part of his personal regime. It is truly Mike’s goal to help others to live happier, healthier, more productive lives on the playing field, on the job, or simply around the house or farm.
