Thank you for reading. I’m truly grateful that you’re here.

My name is Mike Vacanti and I’m an online fitness coach, Ben & Jerry’s addict (seriously) and averagely skilled writer.

You can see my client’s before & after pictures here or start working on yourself by grabbing a copy of The Beginner’s Fitness Guide.


What is this site?

Fitness information is generally terrible.

When it is decent, it tends to be eye-gougingly boring and monotonous.

Here, you will find quality content written in an (I hope) entertaining manner, to help you achieve your fitness goals while still living your life.

This is not for bodybuilding gym rats or athletes hoping to win the crossfit games.

Instead, this is about losing weight & becoming stronger and healthier while eating Ben & Jerry’s, enjoying some drinks on the weekend and living a fun and ‘normal’ life.

Yes, it is possible.
