Athlete and Wellness Coach
If you ask Mike, he considers himself one of the lucky ones. Fortunate to have been born and raised on the fine sand beaches of Newport Beach, Mike grew up on the beach, which provided a large playground of sand and surf that he parlayed into a collegiate and professional career in the sport of volleyball. Scales competed in the domestic beach volleyball tour, the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP), for just over a decade.
Upon retirement from the beach, Scales stumbled upon the sport of fitness. He now competes in local, national, and international competitions as a CrossFit Masters Athlete. Mike currently trains out of Crossfit Chalk in Costa Mesa, CA and is a Level One certified coach.
Mike holds many personal training credentials and certifications as well as a BS in nutrition science. He is currently working on his masters in human performance and nutrition to go along with his minor in kinesiology. He likes to learn in the classroom and apply what he learns to not only his training, but use to help his clients achieve maximum benefits. His experience as an athlete as well as a student have both helped shape him into one of the most sought after trainers, coaches, and nutritionists in Orange County.
