Mike Matrunola decided at a young age that he wanted to be more. Mike ‘aka’ Peanut, ‘aka’ M. has been one of the longest running students of Physiques Gym. He has studied and followed Craig Tinnelle and has learned well.

At the age of 15, Mike decided he was tired of being the ‘little guy’ and started weight lifting. At the age of 16, Peanut found his way to Physiques Gym and this has been home ever since.

Currently a student at NAU online, Mike is studying business,marketing and fitness.

Competing in his first NPC bodybuilding competition in 2014, he has embraced and lives the lifestyle of a bodybuilder. Expect to see Peanut on stage competing in the men’s classic physique division in the future.
