Here's What I Like to Geek Out On

Just a few of my favorite topics


As a young coach, there are many, and I mean many times where you are put in a position of wanting to hold onto some sort of information control. There is a feeling that if you share anything with anyone, somehow you will eventually lose out, be taken advantage of or be unsuccessful. You worry because you have put so many hours in, you simply want to hold onto control of your value, and not give it away in minutes for free. And then along comes a coach, practitioner, and scientist who not only shares everything he knows with anyone who asks, but retains the greatest respect from anyone who has ever had the opportunity to speak with him. He truly is a mentor to so many people, and one of the heroes in the health, fitness, and performance world. I honestly have moments when I think: “How would Mike handle this”, and I get clarity on the matter   Thank you for all your help over the years”.

“Just ran 15 minutes straight for the 1st time in 6 months with minimal pain. Super excited! Thanks to Mike T Nelson for the tips on arm swing and ankle exercises you told me months ago on our ski trip. They really help each and every day!!!! “

-Jenny Liethen, Radiation Tech

“Thank you brother. You are the man. I’m really making great progress with my fighters, more and more guys and girls are coming to me for nutrition and training, the phrase “easiest weight cut ever” is a commonly heard phrase. Safer and more effective with carb management, nutrient timing and…metabolic flexibility. Thank you so much for teaching and helping me Mike, you are the man. Can’t thank you enough.”
