J. Michael Manning
The Vice-Chairman of the OCI Certification Board
"To promote the idea that exercise is medicine and is to be enjoyed as play, not simply endured as a necessity. Incorporating elements of dance and music to any routine enhances the enjoyment as well as the benefit of any activity. My commitment to excellence is evident in the passion I bring to my vocation each day. If I can inspire one person to grab life with that same depth of passion, then I will have succeeded in my mission"
