I grew up with a passion for fitness and realized my greatest satisfaction was in helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. I love motivating clients to believe in themselves and help empower them to live a healthy life.

I decided to start my own personal training business to better represent the sound values and ethics that drive me to succeed.

My experience as a holistic lifestyle coach, nutrition coach, personal trainer, and group fitness instructor has given me the opportunity to work with clients of various backgrounds and fitness levels. I specialize in weight loss, corrective exercises, strength training, cardiovascular endurance training, and flexibility training. Clients receive more than just customized training, but a physical and emotional journey to a better quality of life. My active lifestyle prepared me for my favorite sport today, triathlon. I compete in sprint, international, half and full Ironman distances. My ultimate goal is to still be doing Ironman races in my 80's.

Interests: Healthy living, triathlons, charitable sporting events, traveling, photography, spending time with family and friends.

    "Aww Yeah!" - Michelle has helped me tremendously in so many ways! After battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (IV), I was looking for a way to get my endurance, and strength back. Michelle was a Godsend! - My last chemo treatment was on December 26th, 2013 and we both were so excited that by the end of February I was able to run up and down my stairs with ease - a feat that was not possible at the end of 2013. She offered a very progressive, intuitive and effective plan to help me reach my short term goals. She considered not only the physical, but my nutritional and positive mental attitude. What a phenomenal trainer and really great person. I HIGHLY recommend, Michelle for anyone recovering from something, training for something or if you just have some goals you would like to attain - She is top-notch. Just love her!!!

    My name is Ashley and I want to share my experience of working with Michelle. I started my Ironman journey as an established runner, avid cyclist and beginning swimmer. I was nervous, doubtful and leery about starting this epic journey, where I would have to not only learn to swim an Iron Distance of 2.4 miles, but to do this as part of a full distance triathlon in open water with 2500 of “my closest friends”. I spoke to my husband about the possibility of working with a coach to see if he had any ideas and he said that he had met someone who was training people at one of the local gym facilities and he thought that we had some things in common and would likely have good chemistry. He was right, from our first conversation, Michelle truly put me at ease, confirming that I was not crazy and this goal was not too lofty to achieve in the short time that I had to prepare. We trained together for several months, and all during this time Michelle providing the most positive attitude and offered constant support through tough times and injuries, she never wavered and was always there to instill confidence and assure me that I was on track and making substantial progress towards my ultimate goal.
    There are many advantages to working with Michelle, as she is well-versed in multiple disciplines and methods of fitness training, but her positivity is a magnet of support and you will never catch her without a smile on her face and this to me is contagious. At times, training for difficult events can be tough or fighting through an injury can be deflating, but when you have a continuous positive force it changes your whole perspective. I got way more than just a coach, I made a true friend. Even after I had finished working with Michelle, she kept in touch with me monitoring my progress and even called me before and after my big event to check in, pump me up and congratulate me on a successful event which would not have happened if not for her assistance, guidance and friendship. Early on I had projected to have a 2 hour swim leg in my Ironman debut, but with her training and direction, I swam a 1:34 and my event was a huge success and my confidence has now reached new levels.
    Michelle is a very special person with an innate ability to help other's achieve their goals. The thing that separates her from other qualified coaches is that her drive is passion-based; she truly loves what she does and lives to help others.

    My name is Susie or "Powerhouse" according to Michelle. What a compliment for a 52 year old with a bad back! I injured my back 7 years ago, two herniated discs with nerve damage, needless to say I was not moving very well. Through the years I tried physical therapy, many injections and spinals all along determined to beat surgery and pain medications. Finally I decided to try a personal trainer...Michelle, an answered prayer!! She taught me how to build my core while strengthening my whole body and also STRETCHING. What a huge difference it has made in the quality of my life. We became friends sharing recipes and lots of good tips!! I will always treasure our time together and will stay in touch. She really walks the walk!! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get in shape. She is "True Blue", dependable and genuinely cares about you as a person. What are you waiting for....call her NOW!!

    After having major ankle surgery and being completely non-weight bearing for months, I struggled to regain the endurance and strength to return to the life I had before. Physical Therapy only did so much and my frustration level was very high. I contacted various personal trainers to assist me in regaining my life and most of them responded with a simple “call to make an appointment”. Only Michelle contacted me to get a total understanding of my situation, limitations, and expectations to determine not only how she could help me, but if she was the right trainer for me. It was clear that this was not just a job or a way to make money to Michelle, it was her passion. Michelle immediately came up with a program that not only targeted the endurance and strength issues I knew I had, but also the balance, stability, and the over-compensation issues I didn’t know I had. She brought things to my attention that I never would have realized regarding my body’s strength imbalance, my gait, the way I protected my weak areas, etc., and immediately knew how to address each one. Her ability to be flexible and adjust routines due to my physical limitations, space limitations of my house, and the obstacles of my pets impressed me. Michelle arrived at every session with a custom plan and lots of encouragement with a smile on her face. Each session was filled with different exercises and routines that created challenge, sweat, and lots of patience on her end. Even those sessions I felt were “too easy” or “too fun” proved they hit the mark the next day. Michelle is seriously a professional trainer with a heart of gold.

    Michelle is a truly excellent trainer. She is skilled, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work out with and talk to. She is tough yet flexible and works with whole person (physically, mentally, emotionally). In just a few short months, I am now more flexible, have more strength, energy and better balance. Most importantly, working out has become more enjoyable and an integrated part of my daily routine. I recommend her without reservation.
