Starting off as the typical skin and bones teenager, Mike hit the weights hard to develop one the most winning physiques in New Zealand bodybuilding, earning titles of Junior Mr Auckland, along with Wellington; Pan Pacific; Australasian; 3 x New Zealand National Championship and Overall Mr New Zealand.
In 2008 Mike made his debut in the IFBB Professional Bodybuilding ranks, where his height, along with wide shoulders, narrow waist, rock hard conditioning and dynamic posing made him an instant fan favourite.
Having always struggled to put on weight, Mike's training intensity is that of a man on a mission, living by the creed of "want it more than anyone else" Mike pushes his body to the limit constantly. Such training requires Mike to rely on Nitrovol LEAN MUSCLE, Triandrobol TEST and during every training session BCAA Amino's as his staple BodyScience fuels. Mike adds Apple Cider Vinegar to support gut health, and KOS Pre Workout for intense leg training sessions.
