Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: Micah Greer

Skimble's Workout Trainer: Verified Trainer Spotlight: Micah Greer

Meet Micah, Workout Trainer‘s latest featured Verified Trainer! He’s collaborated with the Skimble Team from the very beginning, so you may have noticed him in some Skimble workout photos and videos. Micah Greer lives in Austin, Texas and has a Masters in Physical Education with a concentration in Exercise Physiology. He’s been a professional fitness coach since 2006 with Personal Trainer qualifications from ACE and NASM, as well, he is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® through the NSCA.

We recently had the chance to chat with Micah about his 10-year fitness career and his experiences with the Skimble Team so far.

Skimble's Workout Trainer: Verified Trainer Spotlight: Micah Greer

Q 1. What is your favorite workout style?

Micah: I do all types of workouts, but my favorites are always set outdoors in nature. Trail running and mountain biking have been a couple of my staples for several years. 

Q 2. You just got married — congrats! How did you train for your big day?

Micah: Yes! Thank you. I got married on March 4, 2016. Training was pretty similar to the norm. I usually do 2-3 days of weights, 1-2 days of a higher intensity weight/cardio mix, and another 2 days of trail running and/or mountain biking.

Q 3. What is your fondest memory from a multimedia shoot with Skimble?

Micah: Honestly, all of the shoots have been great! Some of the highlights are: breaking out the superhero costumes, seeing a Skimble push-up performed in person, and just being back in San Francisco after being away for a while.

Skimble's Workout Trainer: Verified Trainer Spotlight: Micah Greer

Q 4. What is a funny fitness moment you’ve had when training a client?

Micah: I’m going to tell you the first thing that popped in my head! This is a bit embarrassing, as well as funny. We laugh about it now so it’s worth sharing. A few weeks into training an older client, I had him finishing one of his harder workouts on the rower. This guy really liked to push himself! He was huffing and puffing, and almost done with his workout. As I was cheering him on, he exhaled forcefully and POP, out came his dentures. We were both in shock for a hot second. I didn’t really know how to deal with the situation. I felt so bad that I almost picked them up for him, but decided he should probably get them. Luckily he was a great sport and laughed it off. 

Q 5. LOL, indeed! What keeps you personally motivated to stay fit? 

Micah: My hunger for health, my wellness-focused career, other people, my wife, my dog, my love for the outdoors… You can find many motivations in your life, it’s only a matter of seeing them. Just pick one!

Q 6. To end it off, what is a ‘secret’ fitness tip you want to share?
 h
Micah’s fitness tip:  I love to emphasize isolated glute activation exercises, such as floor bridges and single leg floor bridges. This works especially well with newer clients, as it rids a lot of people of back pain and problems (if performed properly). It can also lead to bigger gains in weightlifting, and usually a bit more muscle on the backside.
h
Thanks for sharing with us, Micah. See you next time, with or without your fancy fohawk!
