About Mike Michalski (Owner and Trainer)

That has been our mantra since Day 1!  Following a career in politics/international relations, I had a hunger for change and to forge a new path within the wellness space.  As a life-long athlete and avid fitness and wellness junky, a return to my roots in fitness was not a surprising path to take.  The goal was to create a more holistic approach to fitness blending mind and body, and to grow a health and wellness community where I could effectively inspire and impact the lives of others.  In that pursuit, Variant Fit (VFit) was born, along with it’s core E-F-S system, built on Efficiency, Functionality, and Self-Empowerment.
I blend my unique skills and experience into a complete system of physical, psychological, and emotional strength and empowerment.  As an elite Private Trainer in NYC, many of my high-profile clients are leaders in their respective industries.  High-end service, expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail during each and every training session and/or group class is exactly what a client can expect from the culture here at Variant.  My relationship with my clients is the backbone of Variant.  I make each client’s goals my goals, and I ensure their comfort level, familiarity, and safety with every aspect of my training regimen.
In combination with that level of service is Variant’s E-F-S system mentioned above.  This training regimen that I’ve personally developed will not only increase an individual’s endurance and energy, flexibility and fat loss, and strength and stability.  But, at the same time, it serves as a thoroughly Efficient, Functional, and Self-empowering program.
In addition to private training, my small-group training classes offer a unique experience for those seeking the guidance, structure, and personal attention that makes private training so valuable, but at a more accessible price-point within the framework of a group class. The most recent addition to Variant’s services is online training through our custom VFit app, intended to deliver Variant’s results-driven holistic approach to health and wellness to an ever widening audience.
Over the years, I’ve had partnerships/sponsorships with several leading companies and in addition to running Variant Fit, I’m also currently an in-house Trainer with top agencies like Elite and New York Model Management, as well as an Ambassador with leading brands in the health/wellness space including Hyperice, and Vivobarefoot.
