You have the option of individual, one-on-one sessions or group classes. Some sessions can be held anywhere in the US or the world via the Internet, on services like Skype or Outschool.

Michael Gold

Optimal thought and optimal fitness through reason, logic, science, passion, and wisdom.

“Michael introduced me to thinking about problems as a whole and inductively (a thought process which has helped in every form of learning). To this day, 7 years later, I still use this method to help me solve problems and learn, in work and in life, more effectively. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking to improve their ability to problem-solve and appreciate learning.” —Joe S, ex-high school student

“Exercising in the woods with Michael has benefited me more than any other type of workout that I have done with any trainer. I enjoy the natural movements and the unlimited variety of exercises that Michael routinely exhibits in the outdoors. Climbing trees, carrying logs and asymmetrical objects, learning to balance on uneven surfaces, and strengthening ligaments, rather than just muscles, are unique exercises Michael utilizes. He is more than just your typical trainer as he covers your overall well-being. I am a freshman on the LSU football team and can attest that Michael is an excellent strength coach.” –Carlton S, ex-high school student and athlete

“I recommend to any parent that seriously cares about their child’s educational well-being — as well as their mental and physical health — to get in touch with Michael Gold and get started with him right away! His holistic and hierarchical approach to learning and understanding the world is a must when helping your child prepare for their future. My three children study with Michael, and I couldn’t be more pleased with their progress. He makes learning fun!” — Melanie K, mother of three to whom I teach science
