Mike Derkach


Mike obtained a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from the University of Manitoba in 2007 and became a Certified Athletic Therapist shortly after.  In the early years, he spent time working as an Athletic Therapist and Strength Coach for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Football Club, Winnipeg Goldeyes Baseball Team and Canadian National Teams for baseball and soccer.  For the last eight years, Mike has shifted his focus to the private sector working with people of all ages and fitness levels as an Athletic Therapist and Personal Trainer.  Over the years, he has come to realize the importance of developing a strong, well rounded foundation for his younger clients as well as helping adult populations adapt their fitness regimens  to help manage busy work and home lifestyles.  Mike specializes in working with people who want to live active, healthy lifestyles but may be dealing with acute or chronic injuries that are limiting their progress.  Those limitations can include low back pain, shoulder stiffness, lack of mobility or even the inability to run around and play with their family. ​
