What People Are Saying
“Coach Zoetewey is incredible at what he does!“
As a head football coach, I had the privilege of working closely with Coach Zoetewey for 6 years. He was responsible for designing and implementing a strength and conditioning program for over 300 athletes.
Coach Zoetewey is on the cutting edge of athletic training. Our team was training with kettlebells and TRX straps before anyone in the football community had ever heard of them. His methods are well researched and incredibly effective. Our team got stronger, faster, and more flexible every single year. Most importantly, due to Coach Zoetewey’s methods, we saw a drastic reduction in knee and shoulder injuries.
I think the most impressive thing about Coach Zoetewey’s program is that he meets athletes where they are. His expectations and methods vary from athlete to athlete and he tries to design programs that turn every individual’s weaknesses into strengths. Coach Zoetewey is incredible at what he does!

“Mike has been a great support to my increase levels of health that have occurred in the past 24 months, and I can strongly recommend him to others.”
Over the past few years, I have greatly enjoyed working with Mike. We came to know one another professionally as we both served at Valley Christian Schools, Cerritos, CA. My respect for his professionalism is strong.
Yet, because we both have a mutual interest in human motivation, physical training, general health, and nutrition we became friends outside of school. In fact, Mike took me under his wings, as a somewhat overweight middle-aged man, and provided me with functional fitness training and nutritional support that has been greatly beneficial to my overall health.
Over the course of a year, working under his guidance as a physical trainer, by overall levels of fitness increased tremendously. Mike made the workouts challenging, but fun. These workouts were demanding on the body, but not overtaxing. In a matter of weeks, results were evident.
I have used his principles of nutrition and functional fitness for approximately two years. These principles are now applied to my daily, weekly, and monthly functional fitness routines that are largely organized and created through what Mike taught me as a physical trainer.
Should you get the opportunity to work under his tutelage, I am sure you will be pleased the results achieved. Mike has been a great support to my increase levels of health that have occurred in the past 24 months, and I can strongly recommend him to others.

“I have been able to trust Mike to handle all of the weight room responsibilities …”
My name if Rick Gangloff and as a small school track coach, 30 +/- throwers on a track team with a total 70 +/- athletes, I need someone I can trust to manage the weight room workouts with little or no oversight. Mike and I have been working together over the last four years and have seen the numbers of throwers qualifying for the CIF Championship meet grow each year.
To manage the large number, I have to split my squad with half in weight room and the other half doing drills/throwing. I have been able to trust Mike to handle all of the weight room responsibilities while I concentrate on the drills/throwing.
Mike has been very open to suggested modifications to his scheduled workouts to meet the sport specific needs of my throwers. He has also suggested a number of improvements that has added to team performance in areas of speed work and strengthening. I appreciate this more than he could know as I expect a lot when it comes to my athletes.
I am expecting great things this year as all remaining throwers are our creations as we inherited a program that was not very competitive in our league, let alone the CIF Championships.
