Passion for friends and family, respect for the rewards of travel, a love of sports and outdoor recreation, overcoming adversity and fears, and inspiring others are the cornerstone experiences and values that led Michael Caron to creating “Get Burly”. After traveling the world via the Semester at Sea Program, Michael completed Teach For America in Houston, TX where he also attained a Masters Degree in Education. Strongly identifying with the struggles and hardships he witnessed through the international relations and global education of semester at sea, combined with his work to bridge the achievement gap with the Teach For America Program, reinforced a desire to pursue a career bringing about positive change. Michael is an experienced trainer, certified Physical Education Instructor, keynote speaker and an award winning multi-sport coach. He has also coached over 40 seasons of high school sports, and has served as a strength and conditioning teacher and coach for multiple schools working with individuals from all backgrounds on reaching their fitness goals. Additionally, he has completed Yoga Teacher Training, as well as the bigger, faster, stronger clinic. He holds certifications as a Spartan SGX certified coach, as well as attaining the Navy Seal Inspired Sealfit Basic Training Certification and the highly coveted Unbeatable Mind Coaching Certification. By combining these experiences Michael has developed a transformative and integrated approach to developing strength in mind, body, and spirit with Get Burly’s programs and retreats. Get Burly has worked together with SealFit, Greenfield Fitness Systems, Yancy Camp, Spartan Race and SWAT Academy leaders, to develop speaking engagements, workshops, and retreats specifically for athletic teams from high school to the professional ranks as well as corporate groups looking to enhance their ability to work together towards common goals. Furthermore through the Get Burly platform Michael and his team offer individual coaching programs including: executive coaching, life coaching, performance coaching, and fitness coaching. Whether through group events or coaching the Get Burly brand empowers individuals and teams to be the best version of themselves.
