About Me


My name is Michael Jin and thank you for visiting my website! Growing up my experiences of being bullied prompted me to embark in my strength training journey at the age of 11. My initial background was through martial arts in which I trained Mixed Martial Arts, as well as receiving a black belt in Haedong Gumdo (a form of Korean Kendo). I was a 4-year Wrestler in High School where much of my strength training background developed from.

I discovered the sport of Powerlifting in my 1st year of undergrad, and have been competing for over 5 years now with accolades such as winning the 2017 Collegiate National title, as well as taking gold at the 2018 Junior Bench Press Championships. With my growing experience as an athlete, I started my Personal Training career in 2016, as well as officially starting my coaching career in 2017. I realized my love for this sport stemmed from developing other individuals, prompting me to become the Head Coach of the University of Houston Powerlifting team in Fall 2017. I have served as a Meet Director, State Referee, and have had the pleasure of being an assistant coach at an international level. Thus, with my specialized experience in coaching over 150 athletes to date, feel free to submit a New Client Questionnaire inquiry to proceed to scheduling a consultation!
