Mike Flynt grew up in Odessa, Texas, graduating from Permian High School in 1966.  In 1965, he was first team, all-district defensive back for the first state championship football team for the Odessa Permian Panthers, starting the winning tradition at Permian High School, and later inspiring the movie Friday Night Lights


Mike received his degree in physical education and business from Sul Ross State University, doing his post graduate studies in physiology of exercise at the University of Nebraska. He went on to be a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Nebraska, the University of Oregon and Texas A & M. Mike is a Certified Master of Fitness Sciences through the International Sports Sciences Association and one of the original founders of the National Strength and Conditioning Association, which has over 30,000 members worldwide. Utilizing his knowledge and years of experience in fitness, he invented the PowerBase, a portable piece of strength training equipment that is safe and effective for people of every age group.


At age 59, he received national attention throughout the 2007 football season.  With his final year of eligibility confirmed by the NCAA, Mike was able to make the team and become the oldest contributing member of a college football team in NCAA history.  Mike not only made the team, but he played the last half of the season on a regular basis at linebacker and on special teams. 


After completing his senior year of eligibility at Sul Ross State University, Mike has returned to his responsibilities at Powerbase Fitness, LLC, where he continues to help people of all ages live a better, more productive life through strength training.  Mike has been married to his beautiful wife, Eileen, for the past 35 years.  They have three children.
