Michael Maldonado

I am mixed martial artist and a Health & Performance Coach out of Danbury, CT.  I initially got into health and fitness after high school looking for ways to improve my performance as a combat athlete, build muscle, burn fat and stay healthy due to not having health insurance. I obtained 3 certifications by the age of 21; NCCPT, ACE & NASM and began helping others while continuing to pursue my passion for MMA.

I have studied in-depth physiology and kinesiology in relation to sports science in my down time and in that time, I discovered I wanted to have a bigger impact on others’ lives.  I began creating strength & conditioning programs for inspiring athletes, coaching local pro and amateur fighters (boxing/kickboxing/MMA /grappling) in CT and I also worked with the Danbury Wrestling program while staying active competing in submission grappling as well as doing triathlons.

As a coach I aspire to work with anyone that believes in hard work and making their health a priority to fuel their personal & professional lives. Becoming a Health & Performance coach has been a blessing allowing me to work with many amazing individuals! I look forward to continuing altering the mindset of what fitness can do in optimizing human movement for a lifetime and continuing to help clients crush their goals in and out of the gym!

Helder Luis

My name is Helder Luis and I have been a part of the fitness/training industry ever since I was fourteen years old.
Having been overweight as a youngster I learned early on how important it was to be healthy and the prevalence of diseases such as obesity and diabetes reminds me of just how critical our physical and mental health is daily.
I began working in the fitness industry in 1990 at the Brookfield YMCA and in the years that I was employed there I worked with a wide variety of individuals, ranging from 11-year-old kids to those 70 years young, both in one on one and in group classes like women's weight training and junior weight training.
Although you may not play a sport you are nonetheless an athlete in the game of life and as such, I will help you attain your fitness goals, whatever they may be, using proper training techniques, not gimmicks.
Simply put there are not short cuts, but the journey is worth it. After all there is no greater gift than the gift of good health.
