His pioneering work to advance the fields of strength and conditioning and sport nutrition through his research and professional service to the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the International Society of Sport Nutrition has made a profound impact on the lives of countless students and professionals. More importantly, Mike was a caring teacher, loyal friend, loving husband, proud father and man that lived his faith and inspired us all,” Kreider said.
