Organically tailored health & fitness services for optimum function, performance and body aesthetics.

Hello, my name is Michael Dadourian, and I specialize in online personal training and small group training.

When I'm not working with clients, I co-host a preventative health web show called The DKMD Show, promote my So Crucial brand, keep a blog about my life and sobriety, and model for popular fitness and fashion publications.

How does online personal training work?

Personal training is effective because a trainer builds a program that is specific to YOU. But that doesn't mean you have to work together in person.

With Online Personal Training, you still get all of the benefits like:

  • A specially designed program to match your goals and equipment access
  • New workouts delivered each week
  • The convenience of setting your own schedule
  • Accountability and Motivation

Except now, your consultations and instructions are done through online communications such as email and even live video, utilizing Skype, GoogleHangouts, or other services!

  • I have been in this industry since 1999 and I can confidently say Michael Dadourian is an one of a  kind of Fitness Professional. His background in athletics as a certified trainer and Athlete separates him from the rest of the hundreds of trainers in this field. His knowledge of nutrition goes beyond what’s in the magazines.  He lives this lifestyle of clean eating and raw food diet.

    Michael Dadourian cares about his clients.  So much so that he would refer potential new clients to someone else if he felt he was not the right trainer for them.  That speaks volumes in this industry.

    If you are looking for a trainer who can train you anywhere, whether in person or consult you online, Michael Dadourian is your trainer.

  • My training with Michael has been very rewarding and incredibly interesting in all phases of the program. As a 50 year old male, I was seeking tra ining to get me to my weight loss goal. The knowledge, and motivation from this program is getting to my goal.

  • Mike has been a great inspiration for me and my weight loss journey. He is very educated in regards to nutrition and fitness and checked in on me consistently to ensure I was comfortable with my diet and exercise routine. Always made me accountable for what I  was and was not doing. I highly recommend Mike to anyone serious about changing their lifestyle and/or staying on a healthy path.

  • Michael is an excellent student, and an absolute sponge for information. He clearly thinks with and applies what he is taught. I am thrilled he is on board making Whole Food Raw Foodism a reality globally.

About Michael Dadourian

This may be the realest About Me section of the website. The realest, in that I'll briefly catch people up on what I am about between all the lines. I have learned not to put labels on myself. I have learned not to box myself into a certain mold of expectations established by the Mass Media circus.

I blog to help myself and to spark thought. Perhaps through that thought, through that conversation, I can inspire at the very least, just one person. My grammar may not always be correct, I may not always dot my i's and cross my t's to to speak but I will be as real as can be. If a reader stares a grammar error in the face, the message was never getting there anyway.

I blog about my travels around the world and the fitness and health industry where I do my best teaching and motivating. I blog a lot about surviving dual-diagnosis which includes heavy, past substance abuse. I blog about my new awareness and perspective on life and what I see around me. I'm also learning to blog once more in the fictional realm as well, via short stories.

If there is a subject within a certain topic you would like me to cover, contact me and give me the idea(s).
