Welcome to NO BULL Strength and Performance

NO BULL Strength and Performance is the only facility in MidMichigan area committed to Evidence Based strength training in a private controlled setting personalized to the individual.  Come see and experience the difference of the most effective training session of MidMichigan.


At NO BULL Strength and Performance, we are a STRICTLY one-on-one personal training facility, which means you are guided through EVERY aspect of EVERY training session; however, under that umbrella, we offer many different services. The basis of our program is full-body High Intensity Training, which ensures maximum stimulation of all major musculatures of the body in a minimum amount of time.


Intensity-based exercise is about finding the right amount of exercise the body needs to create positive adaptation (muscle growth, fat loss, strengthening of joints, etc.) It is not about doing countless sets of the same exercise or just moving through an exercise without purpose. In our programs, we make sure you are getting the most out of each set and each rep.


NO BULL Strength & Performance was opened in 2010 knowing that most people do not lift consistently for one or more of these reasons:

  • Inexperience
  • Intimidation
  • Injury Limitations
  • Fear of Injury
  • Available time
  • Lack of results with previous programs


NO BULL’s strength programs solves all of these. Whether you are a novice or an experienced lifter we can get you STRONGER in less time than you ever imagined. All of our equipment is bio-mechanically correct and satisfy all requirements for full-range exercise.  We are the only facility outside of professional sporting teams and universities in the state that offers the entire line of Pendulum Strength equipment along with hand picked pieces of Hammer Strength, Nautilus, MedX Avenger, and numerous other pieces to keep you challenged.  We are the first in the state to offer the DynavecMD Gluteator and the only Dynavec Plantaris ankle system.


Finally, nutritional counseling is also supplied with any exercise program or can be done separately. A quick overview of what we teach is eating whole, unadulterated food whenever possible. Breakdowns of proteins, carbs and fats are discussed on an individual basis, depending on a client’s, age, sex, physical shape, culture and, of course, goals.


One on OneALL sessions are Personalized and Private 1-1 strength training designed to PROTECT and DEVELOP the Athlete in EVERYONE.  In 30 minutes you WILL improve your strength, cardio, and flexibility.




Neuromuscular Testing– We are the only facility in the MidMichigan area that uses RPR and BAT to test and teach you how to Live Optimized. Eliminate pain, increase strength, flexibility, balance, speed and coordination. It is an empowering practice that seeks out, identifies and overrides muscle compensations that lead to stress, injury and pain. Once learned the process can take literally minutes anywhere, anytime.




Head and Neck– We are the only facility in the area that has not one, but two Pendulum Strength neck machines along with the Head and Neck Specialist Certification.

saints-footballHaving been trained personally by Erik McKay, I believe in his ability to properly train athletes. Erik not only has the experience, but is also safe and effective when it comes to training athletes.

First and for most, the methods by which Erik conducts his business and reputation are one hundred percent structured around safety of the athlete.

Being an Offensive Lineman for the New Orleans Saints, my job beats me up on a regular basis. It’s an absolute sigh of relief to know that when I come home to train during the off season, I am not going to get hurt or put my career in jeopardy. I firmly believe that this would be beneficial for young athletes as well, who often have the attention spans of gnats, and require a trainer who will actively keep them safe with proper form and execution of exercises.  As a professional athlete I one hundred percent put my stamp on and endorse Erik McKay.
