Mike Salemi (@mike.salemi) is a Kettlebell World Champion, Kettlebell Master of Sport, Bulgarian Bag Pro Trainer, and a CHEK Practitioner Level I & Holistic Lifestyle Coach II.

Mike's journey in strength & conditioning started at the age of 15 as a competitive Powerlifter. At 19, Mike became a WABDL World Champion in the Bench Press and Deadlift. While working as a D1 collegiate strength & conditioning coach, Mike was introduced to the power of the kettlebell, and the work of respected Holistic Health Practitioner Paul Chek. Both have had large influences on Mike's development as a more well-rounded athlete and person in the years that followed.

Currently, as an avid Kettlebell Sport competitor, Mike has achieved the ranking of Master of Sport (Long Cycle & Biathlon), and became the 2017 WAKSC World Champion in Long Cycle.

Through his unique approach, Mike has been able to integrate a high performance form of athletic training using a holistic model. His dream is to continue creating educational materials and programs that support a more balanced athlete.

In this episode, we talk about competing in kettlebells, suples Bulgarian bags, Mike's experience working with Paul Chek, becoming a world champion in kettlebells, holistic practices for high performance, and more.
