Michael "The Great White" Tobin
Michael has been with us since the beginning of 2017. He saw the need to grow as a combat sport athlete and build his strengthens and plug his weaknesses. Approaching MMA from a scientific perspective has resulted in some serious gains in body composition. Being a Judoka background, his upper body strength was always fantastic, yet he in MMA his hip and trunk strength was not good enough. Over the time we have focused on building those areas and see a more solid build in the areas that are important in combat sports such as MMA, The Hip and Trunk/Core.
Michael is a beast, he is growing as an athlete on the international scene after long dominating Australian MMA promotions. Check him out of Facebook HERE
