About Mike Curry
Fitness Mantra: "Your body is your fortress, protect it." To me this mantra means you only get one body, protect it by eating clean, training hard (and safe), so that you can enjoy the longevity of life and all it has to offer.

My origins in the fitness industry:
I love finding ways to challenge my clients while maintaining the FUN factor.
I love my job and love helping people reach their goals using balance as my tool.
It's all about FUNction and FITness!
Favorite StrongBoard Exercise:
My favorite exercise on StrongBoard Balance is Half Circles. I came up with this exercise to get not only some hip stabilization but to force your glute to stay engaged throughout the exercise. And it's a great quad burner!
Favorite StrongBoard Experience:
I have had many great experiences with the board but I would have to say my favorite is something that happened during a Group X class at Spectrum. A girl came into class late and you could tell was very unsure of herself, upset that everyone was on the same page and really wasn't happy for unknown reasons. I wasn't teaching this class. I was walking around, helping people get in and off and assisting with proper form and technique. I immediately saw her and went over and spent about ten minutes with her, catching her up. I continued to watch and give her any help needed throughout the class. By the time the class was over, she was smiling, performing all the exercises given and just had a glow about her. She even came up and gave me the biggest hug and told me how awesome I was. I replied by letting her know it was her that was awesome and that she did a great job. She immediately wanted to know when we were having the next class. She made my day, and we made hers.
Favorite StrongBoard Color:
The blue springs are my favorite. I have always loved blue. Blue reminds me of the sky - big, open, and endless.
Favorite Workout Music:
I love any song that has a great beat that naturally wants to keep you moving. Some of my favorite songs are:
Jessi J - Burnin' Up
One Republic - Love Runs Out
David Guetta - Blast Off
Alexandra Stan - Mr. Saxobeat
I love trail riding on my mountain bike, paddle boarding, snowboarding, drawing, building things, coming up with new inventions, hanging out with my fur kiddies, and having a drink and playing board games with my wife.
My Personal Vice:
Coffee. It's so good, especially in Costa Rica!
Travel Memories and Aspirations:
