Michael Littrel, Chairman
Mike is the founder and CEO of X3 Sports Enterprises mixed martial arts gyms. He successfully manages two locations in the Marietta and Midtown area and is currently working on a third location. The gyms specialize in a wide variety of training such as kickboxing, sports performance, nutrition/personal training guidance, support and helping individuals reach their ultimate goals. Seeing the good things and influence that X3 Sports has brought to so many individuals, Mike realized the need to take the benefits further then just for-profit. Believing in the need to give back and fully committed to “getting what you want out of life requires you to help others get what they want and need” Mike started the X3 Foundation. Mike is also co-founder of X3 in the Kitchen, a new program designed to help clients make smarter and healthier food decisions. Growing up in Iowa with a large family, athletics allowed Mike the outlets that he feels taught him lessons on what being a successful person requires. Mike was a successful competitor in sports ranging from baseball to wrestling. After competing in “traditional” sports Mike began boxing and kick boxing competitively, amassing an undefeated 9-0 record, winning the 2003 WKA Light Heavyweight title and being named to Team USA. This experience allowed Mike to parlay his skills into the many fighters and athletes he currently coaches and manages today. Mike has lived in the Atlanta area for 16 years and graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration majoring in Real Estate and is a member Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Mike currently lives in Midtown with his wife Jamie and dog Lucy.
