Meet Michael

Michael is a highly effective facilitator, consultant and entrepreneur with two decades of experience in customer-centric businesses.

He is driven to share his passion and knowledge with other business owners to help them make the greatest positive impact on the world and build the life they have always envisioned. Michael’s unique approach combines his hands-on experience as a business founder and CEO with expert coaching and consulting skills to help entrepreneurs reach their goals faster and with less stress.

Our Partnership

Michael and his "non-sexual life partner" Mark created Business for Unicorns in 2016 and have since worked with clients like Sony Music, Sylvan Learning, as well as many of the leading fitness studios across the US and UK. They are also proud alumni speakers of TEDx Broadway.

In addition to their consulting and teaching through Business for Unicorns, Michael and Mark also co-founded Mark Fisher Fitness (MFF), one of the most successful gyms in the history of the fitness industry. MFF has two physical locations in Manhattan and was recognized as No. 312 on the 2015 Inc. 500 fastest-growing companies in America, as well as one of Men's Health's "Top 20 Gyms in America."

About Mark Fisher Fitness

With a reputation as the Broadway community’s fitness home of choice, MFF has been featured in Forbes, the New York Times, the New York Post, the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal, among others. MFF has made waves in the fitness industry for its unprecedented growth, industry-leading results and unique approach to culture. Living its mantra of “ridiculous humans, serious fitness,” MFF provides progressive training and nutrition protocols in a delivery system of subversive humor, fantastical imagery and outrageous antics. Michael and Mark also inexplicably talk about unicorns, call their clients ninjas and treat fun, community and personal growth as core values.

More About Michael

Prior to joining forces with Mark, Michael managed customer-centric teams throughout the U.S. for the world-class Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. After pursuing his graduate studies at Drexel University in Arts Administration, he expanded his management skills to nonprofit business.
