Coach Stella

Coach Stella

Coach Stella is a short documentary that chronicles the uplifting story of Mike Stella, a man who has overcome life struggles to be an elite strength coach in the greater Boston area. When Mike was born, his parents were told he would never walk - he had been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. From a young age, he was drawn to the weight room to understand more about his body, and through this he found his passion for coaching. In the weight room, he found a place where he could compete against himself, smash goals that many would perceive impossible, and help others do the same.
