ACE Professional Profile



Michael Richards

Elk Grove Village, IL US 60007-4214

About Michael Richards: Michael Richards received his Bachelors Degree in Holistic Health and Wellness through Northeastern Illinois University. He is also an American Council on Exercise Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist, National Academy of Sports Medicine Optimum Performance Trainer, International Fitness Professionals Association Certified Personal Trainer, and a CHEK Institute Level 3 Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach. Michael’s exceptional achievements and contributions have been almost 10 years in the making. At age 22, he began a program to transform his body from being one that was chronically obese and out of shape to one that is an athletes envy. The process took Michael about 18 months, losing more than 150 pounds through proper diet and exercise. When finished he couldn’t stop at just his own success. He made fitness his passion, and now at age 32 has become a sought after motivational speaker, personal trainer and lifestyle coach, inspiring thousands of people to pursue a lifestyle change and better themselves through wellness. Exercise and proper nutrition completely changed Michael, not only physically, but also and possibly more importantly mentally and in his outlook on life. “My whole life people had told me to lose weight. People can tell you to do things all they want, but unless YOU want to do it for yourself, it will not happen. No matter what your goal is-weight loss, stress reduction, increased energy, or to just start thinking positive, with the right motivation, education, and accountability anyone can accomplish whatever goal they put their minds to-no matter how big or small that goal may be.”
