Born prematurely, Miguel Novo was told as a child that he would encounter physical challenges and limitations his entire life. He was 13 years old when he decided to prove them wrong. With Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson as inspiration, Miguel began to lift weights, eventually becoming a certified personal trainer to help others overcome their mental and physical obstacles.
Today, Miguel leads intense personal-training fitness programs based on his clients' physical-condition evaluations. He teaches as he trains, infusing the ever-adapting sessions with his fitness and nutrition knowledge to equip students with the tools to lead healthy lives. In addition to the one-on-one sessions, he leads outdoor group boot camps that incorporate cardio endurance exercises and strength training into high-intensity workouts.
