Michelle's Success Story

Hi everyone, my name is Michelle, and I am the Founder of One Fit Widow. After losing my husband in 2009 I became engrossed in fitness not only as a lifestyle but also as a profession. I started with losing close to 80 pounds and over 30% body fat, running my first 1/2 marathon, then a full, and then competing in my first NPC Figure Competition“.taking 6th place out of over 22 ladies. I decided that my love of fitness was more then just a pass-time. I wanted to share my passion with those who have experienced extreme grief and trauma so I became a certified personal trainer and left my VP position with my corporate job. The decision seemed foolish to many but my loss has taught me that we must follow our passion in this life. All I have learned from my loss has taught me a greater appreciation of life and the limited time we have to do what we are destined to do. I started my fitness career as a trainer at the gym that gave me my weight loss success and then eventually left to start 1FW, LLC and One Fit Widow, LLC. My dream is to help as many people as possible find stress relief and renewal of life through health and fitness.
