Mike Creamer has been a New York personal trainer for over 2 decades. Before shifting to New York in the mid 1980s Mike managed a gymnasium in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland where he taught a couple of musicians from a local band who were about to make a name for themselves in the U.S. That band was U2 and those musicians were Bono and bass player Adam Clayton. After arrival in New York Mike was introduced to the actress Cher’s nyc personal trainer JP at a post U2 concert party. JP arranged an interview for Mike with the owners of the post nyc personal training company Plus One.
Mike was hired by Plus One and soon got to know other New York personal trainers. Located in a personal and discreet Soho loft, Plus One catered to a famous people that included famous actors, actresses and artists. While working at Plus One Mike was one of the most sought after New York personal trainers and his clients included John Kennedy (JFK) Jnr. and Bonnie Raitt.
When Plus One commenced their new headquarters facility at the World Financial Center in downtown Manhattan, Mike was selected to head a team of New York personal fitness trainers that could meet the specific needs and demands of their celebrity customers. Plus One WFC was acknowledged as a new kind of fitness center or “fitness clinic” that incorporated the topics of sports medicine and exercise science. Plus One WFC housed orthopedic offices with X-ray facility, a complete staff of physical therapists, nutritionists and a team of the top NYC personal trainers, all under one roof. Sadly Plus One WFC (situated literally across the street from the World Trade Center) shut down on September 11th 2001 and never opened again. However the Plus One brand made a full revival and is now the premier source of corporate fitness and health services in the U.S.
