Personalized Nutrition Coaching

It's a lifestyle modification not a program

Mindful Movement


A health coach mentors and guides their clients towards their fitness goals using a series of strategies including:

  • Teaching movement techniques to prevent injury
  • Developing personalized programming to keep fitness fun and engaging
  • Motivating and encouraging clients to achieve their goals
  • Tracking progress
  • Providing accountability to keep clients focused on the long game

At Michael Baker Wellness, we view physical activity as an absolute necessity. Any way you choose to move your body is physical activity, and it’s essential to listen to what your body needs and choose movement that feels authentic, joyful, and supportive for you. It’s also important to know that putting your body in motion is a powerful act that benefits more than your muscles. Movement gets energy flowing, reduces stress, boosts mood, and can even sharpen your ability to focus.

Prioritizing physical activity is an act of self-love and self-care. By carving out time to move your body, you’re giving yourself the gift of energy, focus, and strength. Physical activity is bio-individual. You can create more space for movement in a way that feels natural, authentic, and enjoyable and adds to your overall quality of life. Your approach can be whatever works for you and will change and evolve over time.

Without understanding food, getting healthy, weight loss or body transformation will be nearly impossible.

When we start the journey together the absolute first step is assessing your consumption of food and drink. I will say it 100x that you will never lose weight if your diet is unchecked. You will never sustain weight loss or a healthy lifestyle if you don't educate yourself and implement change.

It's why programs like "Weight Watchers" are garbage. They don't educate you, they give you pre-made space food and limit calories. The second you are left to fend for yourself you are helpless.

The most important thing you can do for yourself is to never need a coach or a program to know what to consume and what not to consume and why.

  • Learn about nutrient dense foods
  • Explore popular diet misinformation
  • Learn to read labels to make better choices
  • Explore great tasting, healthy alternatives

People are hypnotized by nutrition theories.

Many people associate the word diet with a meal regimen designed to lose weight. I view diet as a healthy lifestyle rather than a program, fad or trend that is bio-individual or unique to YOU. This lifestyle encompasses nourishing yourself and choosing foods that support your optimal health and well-being.

Nutrition information is most often taken from the online experts, news, blogs, magazines, social media clips, or books. Guess what? Every expert does things their way and every expert conflicts with another expert.

My goal is to expose you many nutrition theories and ultimately to a lifestyle of consuming only real whole foods. Whether you go Carnivore, Paleo, Mediterranean, Vegan or anything in-between should be figured out intuitively. 

I have picked bits and pieces from dozens of sources to find my way.

You will flourish when you adopt a way of eating created with your bio-individuality in mind and with real whole food at the forefront of every meal you eat.

But how do I navigate this?

I offer in-person, in-store and online coaching. Sometimes it's integrated into our training sessions to save time. Sometimes it may be in-person shopping sessions. I provide tips and insight on how to identify real food, to help you replace processed food, fast food, seed oils, fake sugar, conventional meat and dairy with real, whole food versions, and make it easy for you to eat healthy no matter where you shop or eat.

  • Learn how to identify real food and how to eliminate fake food
  • Learn about macronutrients
  • Hands-on help with healthy eating
  • Learn how to navigate going out to eat and vacation
  • Save money on healthy food by knowing where to find the best deals
  • Digital assistance on how to best use Instacart, Amazon, and other direct-to-consumer sites to save time and effort
  • Replace processed food, fast food, seed oils, fake sugar, conventional meat and dairy with the real, whole food versions
  • Eat healthier and feel better, with personalized support and guidance from a health coach

Working with Mike has been a game-changer. From day one, it was clear that I had stumbled upon a gem in the world of personal training. First and foremost, Mike has a remarkable setup at his home for one-on-one training. It's the perfect blend of a comfortable, private space and a fully-equipped gym, creating an ideal environment for focused workouts. The moment I stepped in, I felt at ease and motivated to push my limits. What sets Mike apart is his ability to craft tailored, bespoke workout plans that are thoughtful and effective. Regardless of whether you're a beginner taking your first steps in the world of weightlifting or someone who's been exercising for years, he has a knack for designing programs that cater to your unique needs and goals. Every session is a personalized journey towards achieving your fitness goals. It's clear that Mike has a deep understanding of physiology and exercise science, and he uses that knowledge to optimize each session. But it's not just about the workouts. Mike is an exceptional motivator and mentor. His passion for fitness is contagious - he listens intently, offers guidance with patience, and ensures that you not only perform exercises correctly but also understand the 'why' behind them. Thanks to Mike, I've not only regained my passion for lifting weights, but I also have achieved outstanding results in a very short amount of time. I feel stronger, more explosive, and even faster, all thanks to his expertise and support. If you're searching for a personal trainer who can provide a top-notch training experience in a welcoming and tailored setting, look no further than Mike. Working with him has been a fantastic experience, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone on their fitness journey.

I started with MB Wellness in early March 2023. The passion Michael brings to every session is second to none, whether it is a cardio day, stretch/yoga day, or strength day he is always encouraging me and talking through some "roadblocks" I may have had the previous week. If you are a 40+ male and looking to get back in shape in a private one-one setting, Michael is your man. He will guide you physically and mentally getting you to your goals and beyond.

Mike has been amazing to work with. Someone to give advice and keep me accountable without ever talking down to me or making me feel bad about my choices or decisions. He has helped me with Diet and Exercise, understands my goals and my situation, helps me through at my pace. He is invested in me doing better. Give him a shot.

I have known Michael for over 30 years. I was so happy when I seen that he was doing this Health And Wellness program because he is in very good shape and he is very smart and knowledgeable about what he’s telling people to do to lose weight and eat healthy after just one month of working with Michael at 215 pounds. I have already lost 5 pounds and I am very motivated to reach my goal which is 185 just talking to him about what I was eating and doing wrong what’s so helpful for me whether was in person or over the phone he gives you plenty of information and details to work with while visiting his home. His family and him were very welcoming and warm to me as always I couldn’t of asked for a better person to help me with my journey , and anybody that needs help with their health and wellness. I would highly recommend Michael to be somebody to work with.
