As a doctor, Mike Sartorius knew that packing on pounds every winter and struggling to shed them the following spring was setting his body up for a major metabolic breakdown. Even after he finally decided to lose the weight and keep it off, it took him five up-and-down years to learn the habits that would lead to long-lasting results. Once he nailed down his five principles of staying fit, however, his body underwent a transformation. Before long, his career would follow suit.
Dr. Mike soon teamed up with his friend, Jerry Lockwood, to found VIP Training and Fitness. The boot camp, which draws on Dr. Mike's experiences with weight loss, proved an initial success and has since been featured on shows such as MTV's I Used To Be Fat. Dr. Mike and Jerry continue to host boot camps at two locations, though nine other trainers have stepped up to pack each week's schedule with 27 available classes. In all of these classes, trainers strive to maintain a balance between fun and intensity. They ensure their campers’ safety at all times by demonstrating proper form and using seat belts as resistance bands.
