Michael Cazayoux’s specialty as a coach is helping his clients “get out of their own way” by identifying self-limiting beliefs and ineffective behaviors.
The back-to-back CrossFit World Cup Champion (2012, 2013) is no stranger to this unique process of self-examination. At the impressionable age of 17, Cazayoux confronted his own limiting beliefs and ineffective behaviors head-on, attending drug rehabilitation to overcome his addiction to opiates.
It’s this experience that inspired a love of health and fitness on a personal level, which later translated into a passion for coaching and mentoring others.
In 2014, Michael co-founded Brute Strength, a company that specializes in developing physical training programs for athletes, and he has coached A-List NFL and MLB players as well as CrossFit Games athletes in everything from power and speed development to injury prevention, nutrition and mindset.
He also started the Brute Strength Podcast where he’s interviewed many of the biggest names in health and fitness and has reached nearly 5 million downloads.
In 2015, Michael met his now wife and founder/CEO of WAG, Adee. They moved into a travel trailer with each other a couple of months later, and the rest is history. In 2018 Michael sold Brute Strength to his business partner and joined Team WAG full time as president. He currently focuses on marketing, general leadership and nutrition coaching.
