Owner / Head Trainer
Mike “Batman” Steinmetz is a man of few words, but he expresses himself best through his program design and implementation and the resulting success that his clients experience. Throughout college Mike worked for several franchise gyms and realized that he needed to offer a higher standard to the community. That is where the vision started for Pure Fitness; a group of highly educated, extremely passionate individuals focused on improving the lives of others through health and wellness. Mike hates long walks on the beach, slow drivers and the word guac. He has been called an old soul on more than one occasion, but give him a piece of heavy machinery and he is a kid in a candy shop. He is extremely thankful that he gets to go to work everyday with his beautiful, blue-eyed wife and that she wrote this for him.

I graduated from college with my eyes set on a career as a personal trainer, but I quickly accepted the opportunity to work as a graduate assistant coaching football. Once I completed my Master’s degree I pursued a goal of joining one of the toughest Special Forces programs in the world. Upon a medical discharge I was prepared to go back to my career as a personal trainer, but I was overwhelmed with a desire to do something more for my community. That put the first breath into, what became, Pure Fitness. I consider my approach, and everyone in this building, to be specialized and hyper focused on your needs. We treat the whole body to improve performance and reduce discomfort. Starting by evaluating you today, listening to where you want to go, teaching you how to get there and progressing you every day. I follow the old adage – you have to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run. My program will be safe and effective, adapting to your needs and your response’s to training. I guarantee you will achieve your results, because it is actually easy, if you know what you are doing.

“Our family has been working with Mike for the past 10 years.  In addition to helping us create and reach personal fitness goals, Mike has been able to help with sciatic pain, back and knee issues. Mike applies his Exercise Physiology degree to individualize workouts that are incredibly challenging, but worth the time.  He can relate to people of all ages and makes exercise FUN!”
