Our Founder


Michael Finigan is the founder of Pursuit Training, an innovative fitness company that has been inspiring people to create lives that are rich in Health, Empowerment, and Strength for over a decade. He has coached international competitors, Olympians, and designed fitness programs for hundreds of people who have experienced lasting change.

From a very young age, Mike’s competitiveness outpaced his physical abilities. Growing up, Mike was often smaller than his peers as a consequence, Mike had to train with more discipline to compete with the top performers. His dedication paid off: he earned a spot representing Team Canada for Roller Hockey, at the International level. His team’s efforts were rewarded with a Gold medal, a feat he repeated 3 more times. Mike went on to coach two North American Championship teams to medalling.

Mike began his fitness training career in traditional group fitness settings. He soon felt that the “one-size fits all” approach was very efficient but found that it didn’t take peoples’ individual needs into account. As a result, PURSUIT TRAINING was founded, giving Mike a platform from which he could establish personalized fitness programs to meet the specific requirements of amateur, professional, and Olympic caliber athletes, or the busy schedules of high-level executives and clients with families.

Mike has studied with top researchers in health, fitness, and motivation, such as Charles Poliquin, Dr. Mark Scappaticci, and Richard Robbins. An active participant in the fitness community, Mike maintains a high profile within Durham Region and the outlying areas, continuing to expand his portfolio of fitness and wellness strategies, ensuring that his clients are afforded the very best support in achieving their fitness goals.


Pursuit Training has a team of dedicated professionals that are committed to our clients’ success.

"My daughter and I were recommended to Michael after she was diagnosed with cancer. For over 4 years we trained with Michael who has a unique blend of knowledge, caring and compassionate support. Through our whole journey Pursuit Training was with us, knowing the right things to do and keeping a sense of humor to lighten the load. Christie trained until 2 months before she died. The years before that were as healthy and fun as they could possibly be and allowed her to live her life to the fullest with no regrets. I will always treasure those session and continue to train with Michael, it is not only training it is a real personal connection like a family, great events like dog sledding and ax throwing parties, when we could have them, were a great part of belonging to that family."
