This week we’d like to introduce you to Michael Miosi, our Skimble Member Spotlight! Michael and his family have been with Skimble since 2011 and he tried several other workout options before finding success with Workout Trainer. As a Camp Director at a youth camp he was tired of “huffing it across camp” and decided to take the necessary steps to improve his health and well-being. Check out his story here:
What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?
About 2 years ago, I stepped on the scale in doctor’s office at 200 lbs, which was the most I’ve ever weighed in my life! I now weigh a little under 165, and I feel great!
What your next fitness goal?
I recently completed a 60 mile trail in 3 days with a friend. I want to complete the same trail with my 13 year old son (in 5 days or less). I also want to break 19 minutes in a 5K.
Who’s your fitness icon and why?
Most of my “fitness icons” are ordinary people, like many folks in the Skimble community. One of my mentors particularly inspires me because he is 69 years old, ripped and could probably out-bench many of the younger guys at the gym any day!
Describe your favorite way of staying fit outdoors.
I love trail running, mountain biking, hiking and kayaking. I also love “backyard” sports with my kids!
What’s your favorite thing about Skimble?
I love that Skimble has something for everybody (In fact, my wife, son and one daughter all use it!). I have greatly enjoyed creating workouts as well as the accountability and inspiration offered through followers and forums!
What’s your fitness mantra/motto?
“Fit to serve.”
We at Skimble HQ get psyched when we find out that our members are going out and challenging themselves. If you are planning to participate in some sort of challenging event, and are using the Workout Trainer & GPS Sports Tracker apps to help you train, we’d love to spotlight you!
