Author / Cali Hinzman



Mike Boyle is in everything.  From professional sports like hockey, football, baseball, track and field, and basketball, Coach Boyle has trained just about every kind of athlete imaginable.  Because of this, he is able to draw from his experience over the course of decades.  Not only has Mike’s body of work served as a nearly lifelong study of human performance, it has also proved to yield amazing athletic successes.

Listening to Coach Boyle discuss his coaching style and methodology will make you wish you trained under him.  He takes an unpretentious yet definitive approach to strength and conditioning.  An outspoken advocate for unilateral strength work, Mike humbly describes his findings as a “brief 16 year long experiment”.  What’s more is that his coaching presence and conviction seems to be that of a young S&C go-hard, despite his having three decades of blood, sweat, and tears invested into the field.

Stay tuned for some of the funniest and best coaching anecdotes from someone who never stops seeking perfection.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.

    This was an awesome episode.

    I saw Mike at a hockey rink recently where he was watching his daughter. I was afraid to say hi.
