My name is Michael Butts, founder of Life with Adventure. I am a personal trainer living in Boulder, CO (a.k.a Adventure Town USA). I have been in love with fitness, travel and adventure my whole life. Throughout my 20’s and early 30’s I was fortunate enough to have traveled to over 40 countries. I love love love to travel and see new places. It was during my travels around the world that I decided to become a personal trainer. When I travel I like to stay in shape and work out in exotic places. Exercising has always given me the energy I need to see the world and experience more.
In addition to getting fitness and nutrition requests from friends, coworkers and other travelers, I have always been asked how I was able to travel so much. I do not come from a wealthy family. Quite the opposite. I remember bailing hay on a farm at 13 years old just to buy my own pair of wrestling shoes. I was tired of getting hand me down shoes from my older brother. I learned to simply work hard, save my money and the biggest factor, commitment. When I went on my first international trip I spent every penny I had saved on the plane ticket. I was committed. I knew I had 10 weeks to work hard and save as much money as I could before I flew to S.E. Asia. Make it so you have no other choice. Commit!
