Head Coach – Michael Gaines

Michael Gaines

X-Project Owner / Head Coach


My Philosphy: I believe your state of mind, impacts every aspect of your life, especially your health and fitness level. My interest in psychology, physiology, spirituality and consciousness guides me and my clients to a higher level of fitness, tapping into the passion needed to live a life of limitless potential.


“I believe my purpose in life is to show people the light that they posses and to guide them to a level of happiness and fulfillment greater than they ever imagined. I believe that we are all capable of anything, and I want to guide them to that truth. There is no limit to what you can accomplish and I want everyone I meet to believe that with all their heart.”


Coaching Style: I share everything I learn and continue to learn, emphasizing the mind over body approach. This drives my passion for guiding each client’s journey and experimenting with them on their path to a limitless life.
