    WOW! What an amazing trainer! I never imagined I can find a trainer THAT good! Michele is very knowledgeable and thorough! She is not just a trainer, she is a friend and she truly cares about people! It helps seeing her in such great shapes and to get inspired by how she can win competition after competition and set an example to her clients/friends.

    After turning 50 I decided to enter an NPC bodybuilding competition in the Figure division. I knew how to exercise and diet as a fitness enthusiast but if I wanted a competitive edge I needed specialized coaching from an expert. After interviewing several coaches I settled on Michele. I was impressed by her credentials, high caliber training methods, firsthand high level competition experience as a bodybuilder and a figure athlete, and her no-nonsense approach to excellence. She aided my development from exercise to dieting to the finer nuances of competition. She was always available to answer all my questions and concerns, caring how I was doing and gave me precise instructions and encouragement on a daily basis. I could have never asked for a better coach. With her judging experience to boot, I gained my competitive edge. She guided me from beginning to end and watched from the audience cheering me as my hand was raised in first place. I not only found a valued coach but a cherished friend.

    I found Michele by doing a trainer search online. I wanted to make sure my trainer was certified. I also wanted to make sure my trainer would be someone who would understand the issues faced by older women. I will be 58 this year and am diabetic, so I have other issues. When I read Michele's qualifications, I was impressed, so I called her. I figured on just working with her for a few weeks until I could establish a routine. However, I have found Michele to be so inspiring and motivating that I've kept her around for six months and will continue to work with her for as long as she is willing to work with me. She changes up the routine enough so my body doesn't get used to one particular way of working out, which seems to be very efficient. Just in the past six months, with her workouts alone (and no change to my already somewhat healthy diet) I have lost 11.5" off my upper body (abs, waist, etc.) and once I add aerobic to the strength training, I am sure I will see even more results.

    I am VERY HAPPY with Michele and HIGHLY recommend her.

    Michele has been my trainer off and on for 7 years! She's coached me through Figure Competitions as well as helping my husband to live a healthier lifestyle! Michele has always been very professional and always acommodating. I've seen better results with Michele than any other trainer or method I have used! She started out as my trainer/mentor and has turned into a great friend!

    Over ten years ago, I met and worked with Michele at Hurley Fitness Center in Flint, Michigan. At the time I retained her for personal training, and the results were well worth the time. Michele puts in a lot of time making sure the training program reflects her client's needs, and she also monitors her client's progress throughout the time she is the personal trainer. Recently Michele opened her own business as a trainer and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their fitness levels. Michele is uniquely qualified to be a trainer as she herself remains in top physical condition, as well as being well informed whether it is nutrition or the workout combinations.
