About Michael Chandler:
 
Originally from High Ridge, MO, Michael grew up in a fairly typical blue-collar, hard-working, middle-America household. Michael is the son of a union carpenter and a secretary. The value of hard work was instilled early on by Michael’s parents, and he attributes a lot of his blue-collar work ethic to the example they provided.
 
Michael currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he and his wife Brie live life on-the-go as they juggle both of their careers, parenthood and running their gym TRAINING CAMP – Nashville. Michael and Brie adopted their son Hap on October 26th, 2017.
