What I Offer

Why I am your only answer
Totally Awesome

Most people are just slightly awesome. I have the advantage of being TOTALLY awesome which is way more awesome than just slightly.

Personal Magic

What makes me exceptional is that I have magical powers. You can check my forehead and see that I have an acne scar in the shape of a bolt to prove it.

World's best

The people of the planet took a vote and yep--they voted me the best. And most modest. But winning the Best category was more exciting.

Michael Papes explored a broad spectrum of sports while growing up, from performing as the lead squirrel in the Ice Capades at just four years of age to later avidly playing ice hockey and soccer. While earning his Bachelors degree from the University of Michigan,Michael became a devotee of Taekwondo and has attained the level of Master. His4th degree black belt is certified with the governing body of Taekwondo, the Kukkiwon.

His extensive experience teaching martial arts along with an apprenticeship in Iyengar Yoga at the Yoga Circle of Chicago has given him a level of knowledge of movement and coaching unmatched by most.

 With over 20 years of coaching experience, Michael has proven himself among the best. Not only is Michael a national champion in Taekwondo, he has coached at the national and international level in two sports. A 5-time coach at the CrossFit games,Michael uses his passion, knowledge and experience to better every athlete he encounters. Michael has distinguished himself from his peers both through his dedication to his clients and his extensive skill set. Never completely understanding or embracing the “fitness” industry model, Michael found salvation in theCrossFit method. An instant convert from the moment of exposure, Michael madeKelly Starrett’s San Francisco CrossFit home base in 2008 and never looked back.

Aside from teaching CrossFit,Michael’s greatest joy comes from spending time with his young daughterCharlotte. Michael can be found riding the rolling hills of Marin County his daughter holding on yelling at his motorcycle “lightning” to go faster.
