Michael's life-changing transformation!
Real Estate Agent Michael Burgio is a Warrior from the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia. His inspirational journey comes from a background of pain and resilience.
Michael had always led an active life, and had a passionate interest in rugby until a devastating injury set him back. He broke his neck on the playing field and suffered severe nerve damage. What followed was 3 neck surgeries, which forced his training to take a backseat, and a sedentary lifestyle to kick in. Unfortunately, this lead to increasingly unhealthy habits and he gained a significant amount of weight.
He needed a circuit breaker that would get him back on track to a healthier lifestyle.
After discovering Wimp 2 Warrior’s 20 week mixed martial arts training program, Michael began to slowly increase his activity and focus on healthier choices in life. By the time he started the W2W program at the Warrior Training Academy on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, he had already lost a few kilos and knew this program would help him to keep on track.
I did Wimp 2 Warrior to prove to myself that I will not let my injuries define my future or hold me back!
Michael pushed himself to his limits, showing up to training each morning and telling himself that “pain is only a mindset”.
And he definitely did prove himself. Michael has completed several Wimp 2 Warrior programs, and lost a staggering 80kgs over the years from a combination of extremely hard work and resilience.
But it’s not just the physical changes that Michael has benefited from. When asked what he has got out of the program, he responded:
“I have so much self-belief and confidence!”
We are truly inspired by Michael’s story and admire his strength, resilience and positive attitude that has led to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
