"Mike Widener is one of the most generous and talented people I know. I am lucky to have him as my trainer. Thank you for this article. More people should know about him. I'm a figure skater; I skate all over the country, but I train in Santa Fe and in Houston. I have had a number of off-ice trainers in larger cities. Mike is the best and most effective personal trainer I have ever worked with anywhere. Who knew I'd find him in Ruidoso, NM"?

Training with Michael is a great experience both physically and mentally. I have never felt better in my life. He helps to develop a physically fit plan for your life.

When I was first injured, doctors said I’d never ride a motorcycle again, but with general body strengthening exercises that Mr. Widener developed for me I was able to compete in the US Four Corners motorcycle rally that resulted in a 15 riding day, 12,500 mile circumnavigation of the continental United States that landed me among the top ten finishers during the summer of 2011. A gym is not a natural place for me but Southwest Personal Fitness is truly more than a gym; it is a place of spiritual enhancement. read more

Michael’s helped me out a lot. He has a lot of knowledge and experience. I’ve been strength training while also working through some back problems and I couldn’t have seen the progress I have without his help. He’s also really good with people and makes everyone feel welcome.
