Michael Mark Bonella

Director of Fitness Programming


Michael worked his way from being a green trainer to a master instructor for Equinox within the first three years of his career. While finding great self-worth in helping others reach goals that were once thought of as impossible, Michael discovered an even greater passion for developing the next generation of Fitness Professionals. The Sonora, California native has worked with Olympic athletes, high-profile tech founders, Emmy-winning television celebrities, runway/print models and more. In 2022, he won first place in the novice heavyweight category of The Muscle Evolution Championship Body Building Competition. True to form, he’s always pumped to motivate people, and considers his superpowers to be empathy, optimism and compassion. In his free time Michael loves to cook, watch Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson movies and playing with ALL the dogs.
