In Home Functional & Therapeutic Training
My vision for fitness has always been more that just losing weight or lifting weights… After retiring from the Navy in 2001, I worked at different gyms and quickly found my passion working with clients with physical issues and debilitating diseases. Management and members noticed my unique ability to work with clients struggling with Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, After Stroke Care and Chronic Joint Pain.
It wasn’t long before I created Dynamic Transition. A place for those who struggled with daily activities but had hope that even with their limited capabilities they would one day be able to regain and maintain their dignity and independence.
My training method is built around the unique abilities and goals of each one of my clients, with the aim of not only achieving goals, but also enriching lives. I discovered that thru basic functional movements and an understanding of my clients challenges that I could create an individual program for each and increase their understanding of functional movements.
Serving Hampton Roads & the Penninsula
“In 2017, my 97 year old dad needed help. Having been disabled by two serious strokes, he was wheel chair bound and could do very little for himself. He had maxed out of his home PT/OT that Medicare paid for and I was not physically able to transport him to any treatment outside his home. My dad wanted to improve and struggled to remain positive. I was so grateful for my dad’s attitude. Then a Kiwanis friend of mine told me about Mike Hildebrand and we gave him a try.
The first difference I noticed was that every other physical and occupational therapist spent half of their time recording data for medicare/insurance requirements on their computers. Mike spent 100% of his time working with my dad. Working with Mike became the high point of my dad’s day.
Mike was reliable, always on time and kept me informed. Instead of sending me pages and pages of repetitive notes, he would send me a 15 second video of my dad crossing his legs for the first time in over a year.
I recently said to Mike at a Kiwanis meeting, “the bad news is that Mike does not accept Medicare and insurance, the good news is that Mike does not accept Medicare or insurance.”
