My Name is Mike Crowson and Muscle Motives is a company that I created 2012 with the intention of taking my personal training online. With my past history of participating in competitions and events I have come across many people that are simply looking for help, knowledge, guidance and most importantly accountability. I came up with a platform to do just that. I have a degree in Fitness Management from the University of North Alabama, graduating Cum Laude. I am a fitness enthusiast with a history of 7 Bodybuilding and 5 Physique Class Shows making it to the National level. I'm also an avid Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Competitor. My knowledge spans across many different aspects of life, not just gym rats!

My name is Stephanie Marie, I'm a 25-year-old fitness Model & business owner/trainer at Hybrid Fitness-OC in Irvine, Ca. 

I am so happy to have the opportunity to inspire you and Proud to be your Online Trainer and Nutrition Coach!! This journey has been long for me, but it's been beyond worth it. That's why I want you to learn a little more about me, because I want to continue to use my passion to motivate others & help people achieve their fitness goals. I know how hard it is to take on change. To challenge your body & mind whether it's to loose weight, tone up or build mass. You have to push yourself hard & it's not easy. But let me tell you... In the end its triumphantly rewarding. A lot of people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel. I have a ton of "bad days" where I'm exhausted, I don't feel like going to the gym or put in the effort to eat clean, a lot of times I have pretty sever stomach pain. 

8 years ago, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. It takes a huge toll on my body, not just stomach pain, but loss of appetite, fatigue, malabsorption of nutrients, low immune system. I've learned with having Crohn's I can have multiple flare ups a year... which land me in the hospital. Stress is the number one factor in causing flare ups & lifting not only allows my body to relive stress but build a stronger physique in which I feel more confident to push through my hard days. It's so rewarding to look in the mirror & see all the work you've put in, actually pays off!! That's why I’m so excited about this opportunity allowing you to learn more! A lot of people have aches, pains, negative self image, disease, sickness, injury, work gets in the way, the list could go on. Everyone has something holding them back. But the point is to find a way to push past that threshold & learn what you really are capable of.

High Intensity Training (HIT) & Accountability Coach

Hi! My name is Lex Appignani and I am a Certified Ace Health Coach and Personal Trainer with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Exercise Science. I specialize in helping everyone I work with to grow, empower, and believe in a better lifestyle. I do that by creating high intensity, efficient, and functional workout programs that will give you results and leave you feeling strong! 

 While I was in college, I came across a seven dimensional, colored wheel that changed the way I understood wellness entirely.  I formerly had a restrictive, all or nothing approach when it came to my physical fitness and nutrition.
Now I believe that life is about balance, growth, action, and results.  After understanding what it meant to live life optimally through seven dimensions (physical/nutritional, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, occupational, environmental, and social) instead of just one or two, life became a lot more balanced and clear. That is what I desire for you! This colored wheel changed my unhealthy and inconsistent lifestyle to a healthy, well, and consistent one. Allow me to come alongside you in your wellness journey and together we can take intentional action steps to grow, empower, and believe in a better lifestyle!
