About the owner: Michelle Gomez
Finally it was about time Michelle started her own studio. After teaching and training for other clubs and studios for years she noticed that there was a huge void in customer service. She watched too often members of other gyms and studios treated like cattle. No one really cared or took the time to get to know them as long as they paid their membership. Michelle wanted to take her vision of creating a sense of family where everyone is treated with respect and compassion come true. At 6 Degree Burn Fitness Studios every client is more than a client they will be treated like family. Her goal is to create an atmosphere and experience for each and every member to feel at home. She is also adding a missing component of Weight Loss Management. Michelle and her team will be responsible for the success of all members creating more of a team effort on everyone’s part. 6 Degree Burn Fitness studios will be creating a Community Action Committee composed of members and trainers/Burn Tech’s that will head up community projects and volunteering to help the local community. Call Michelle at 989-992-0433 if you have a cause or the need for volunteers to help within community.

GEORGE CHRIS BARAN, BURN TECH, GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR AND PERSONAL TRAINER
At one point in my life I was 60-80 pounds overweight, constantly tired, unhealthy food cravings, borderline cholesterol, and blood sugar readings led me to the point of not wanting to be sick and tired anymore. After 13 years of training properly, eating right, studying human physiology/kinesiology, going to college, earning my (NSCA-CPT) ultimately led me to my purpose…. Help others achieve obtainable fitness & lifestyle goals. After seeing a change in the demographics and realizing that baby boomers make up a large portion of the population I decided to pursue and obtain my certification as a “Senior Fitness Specialist”. This has allowed me to work with clients at all different levels: student athletes, 40 something’s, woman trying to get that pre- baby body back, and even senior citizens faced with certain physical limitations that would need a trainer certified that could bring the training to them. My calling in life will continue to allow me to inspire, motivate, and promote transformation leadership to change lives for the better.

REY GUERRERO BUHAT, BURN TECH, YAW-YAN MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTOR
Born and raised in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines on July 29, 1970 and started taking formal Martial Arts lesson in high school at the age of 17 at the National Judo Karate Association of the Philippines for one year. Went to practice in private with a close Chinese friend who had a background in Kung Fu for a couple of years until I graduated from High School.
Moved to Cebu City in 1990 where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering at the University of San Jose – Recoletos in the year 1995. CEBU, the Queen City of the South, was where I began my Full-contact Martial Arts career in 1990 at the age of 20 in the Yaw-Yan Temple under Master Julius Villaflores the first generation and original disciple of Grand Master Napoleon Fernandez (founder and originator of the art).
My chief instructor at that time was Master Benigno “Ekin” Caniga who now owns his own gym in Cebu City and has the largest number of students in the region due to the adaptation of MMA and Stick Fighting system incorporated into the Yaw-Yan form. This system is now known as the ArDigma System of Yaw-Yan. I was promoted to the position of Assistant Instructor in 1991 was given the Loyalty Seal of the Yaw-Yan brotherhood, a signature branding in the chest of the Yaw-Yan Symbol, a very significant event in my life that made me a full-pledged Yaw-Yan brother.
I started fighting in the ring in 1991 and fought several times with different stables around the country. During those times where MMA was not yet recognized as a legal sport, we would challenge different groups to come to our gym or us going to their gym for a one on one combat to test out skills, boost the confidence and the experience of having tested one’s ability to apply the techniques.
Currently holding a Blue Belt level in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and expanding my knowledge in ground fighting techniques to effectively adapt to different fighting situations
