There Is Absolutely No One Else Like Mike Infante

The world has seemingly seen it all that it’s often difficult to say that something or someone is truly unique. We live in an age where we are all desensitized to information, devaluing what truly lies within something special since we’ve practically “seen it all.” Mike Infante, however, is on a whole other level, and he’s here to show the world that a mere disability shouldn’t be enough to stop someone from chasing his dreams and aspirations.

Mike Infante goes above and beyond the status quo. He is not an average 20-year-old. In fact, he has been frequently dubbed as a golden light full of joy which brings a different outlook into the world. Mike has lived his entire life with Cerebral Palsy, but he has never let his disability dull his sparkle, nor has he ever let it define him. The multi-talented individual is an actor, wheelchair bodybuilder for the WNBF, music video director, and a huge advocate for the disabled community.

The renowned Mike Infante has done over 23 theater productions and three films to which he is credited for namely “Mother,” “The Sounds of the Street,” and “Exercise and Realize.” His passion for fitness was deeply rooted within his familial ties as he grew up in a fitness family. His life has always revolved around fitness from physical therapy, adapted physical education and swimming.

At the age of 15, Mike really got into his passion for weightlifting under the teaching of his adapted P.E. Teacher Bob Bell and his father. When he turned 17 years old, he got more serious about weightlifting training with his dad. About a year later, Mike decided to go down the route and pursued bodybuilding entirely.  

He competed in the WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation) in the wheelchair division and garnered a lot of attention. He dreams of becoming a professional bodybuilder within the WNBF, and he hopes to spread awareness and attract more aspiring athletes to the stage. He attributes much of his success to his prime inspiration, his father. “He is not only my dad but the best coach pushing me day in and day out and reaching my full potential,” shared Mike Infante.

Mike’s mom is also another big inspiration of his. “My mom would push me hard in school when no one else did. She gave me life; she made me the man I am today, and I’m forever grateful,” he added. Apart from his bodybuilding career, he is also a music video director with a twist. He has made things work despite his disability, collaborating with the likes of Bailey Standley, Joshua Albalos, Zach P, and Teighan Fitz.

Mike Infante is an inspiration to all. He hopes to channel all his efforts towards spreading awareness about disabilities and help pave the way for younger generations of disabled individuals. He is a beacon of hope for many generations to come, and he hopes to show the world that a disability should never define an individual. Rather it should be their actions that should be shown on full display.

In the near future, Mike Infante sees himself creating larger impacts within a wide variety of industries that he is involved in. He hopes to raise more awareness of the world and see everyone succeed in their own right. It’s clear to see that the young individual has a heart of gold, a remarkable work ethic, and a passion for succeeding despite the challenges that life has thrown at him from the very beginning.Follow Mike Infante on Instagram to know more about this remarkable individual’s story.
