Mitchel Heard has been evolving in his fitness profession since he began in 2005. Over the last twelve years, he has pushed himself to become further educated in the fields of fitness, nutrition, health and wellness while gaining valuable real world experience working with a wide range of clients. After earning his Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition Science, he became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

Over the course of his extensive career, Mitchel has been fortunate enough to be mentored by some of the brightest minds in strength and conditioning, physical therapy and nutrition. In addition to bolstering his clinical knowledge of exercise science by staying up-to-date on the latest research, he is constantly exploring complementary and alternative fitness, health and wellness methods.

Mitchel’s depth of knowledge is accentuated with extraordinary breadth of experience. He has designed diet and exercise programs for professional athletes, celebrities, working professionals and a wide range of special populations including new and expecting moms, the aging population, teens, kids and those with neurological or degenerative disorders (e.g. MS, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease).

Mitchel created Strongevity to bring his lifestyle philosophy to a larger audience. He found that real and sustainable results come when people discover the benefits of focusing their intention to live healthier and refine their techniques for doing so. His progressive teaching method emphasizes this by introducing revolutionary ways to interact with food and training excellence in exercise technique for the purposes of both injury prevention and efficiency.

In the kitchen, he gives people the freedom to eat what they want by adhering to a few founding principles. In the gym, he mixes classical weight training methods with athletic strength and conditioning techniques that results in a dynamic mix of tempos and intensities that is exceptionally effective. Mitchel wants his clients to experience the everlasting benefits of fit and healthy living without making it a full time job. Strongevity is the very method he personally uses to remain in great shape with minimal time commitment, and it is all right here for you!

“Throughout my Himalayan trek in India I was praising Mitchel. The cardio I had done prepared me for the altitude. The strength training prepared me for the strenuous demands of climbing, and descending, moving forward through pouring rain and burning sun. My agility, flexibility, and balance came into play time and time again as we forded streams and made our way along mountain trails a single footstep wide.

Mitchel continues to grow as a trainer, continues to search for new ways to challenge himself, and for new ways to inspire, motivate, and foster the development of his clients. He hears our goals, respects our limits, encourages our growth, and—in his heart-of-hearts—truly cares about the well-being of his clients. At 61, I am in the best condition of my life. In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that would be the case if I had met anyone other than Mitchel when I joined the gym four years ago.”

“Mitch has been my trainer for 5 years now. His dedication to his profession and his clients is what makes him a standout personal trainer. He is part personal trainer, part nutritionist and part therapist. He is always there to support my fitness goals with true care and concern for my well being. That said I always get a great workout/butt kicking. My time with him is well spent and l leave our sessions with a sense of empowerment and accomplishment.”

“I’ve trained with Mitchel for three years and earlier this year I stepped up my game in preparation for my wedding in October. For four months, we met twice a week and focused on the areas I wanted to hone in on based on the style of my dress. I also found our sessions to be an effective way to stay on track with my diet and exercise regime. I was so happy with the results. I’ve since gone back to our usual weekly sessions and I find it an excellent way to keep a check on my fitness and health.”

“Mitchel isn’t just a coach; he’s a partner who is equally invested in your success (if not more at times!).  He comes to every session with infectious energy and creativity and is extremely knowledgeable in numerous aspects of wellness.  Working with Mitchel has left a lasting mark and made fitness a permanent and ever-present part of my life.  Words simply can’t do justice to his abilities.”
