THE MOMENT I MET MICHELLE I KNEW THAT I WAS GOING TO BE IN GOOD HANDS. SHE MADE OVERCOMING FEAR AND LEARNING TO TRUST HER EASY.  AFTER SHE LAID OUT MY PLAN & WE STARTED GOING TO WORK, THE RESULTS SPOKE FOR THEMSELVES. I KNEW WE WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE! DIETING IS OF COURSE THE HARDEST PART AND MICHELLE REALLY WORKED HARD TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE DISCIPLINE OF EATING. HER ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT TO BELIEVE IN MYSELF, AND REACH FOR GOALS THAT WE BOTH KNEW I COULD REACH, WAS AMAZING. AND LADIES, DON'T BE AFRAID TO  LIFT HEAVY. I PROMISE YOU WONT END UP LOOKING LIKE THE HULK. I TRUSTED MICHELLE IN THIS AREA AND I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER AS A TRAINER. SHE WAS ALWAYS THERE TO SUPPORT ME, CREATE MY WORKOUT AND DIET PLAN JUST FOR ME, CALM MY CONCERNS AND ANSWER ANY  QUESTIONS I HAD; EVEN ON A SUNDAY OR AT RANDOM TIMES OF THE WEEK. SHE IS SO GENUINE AND SHE TRULY HELPED ME TO CHANGE MY LIFE.

WITHOUT A DOUBT, I ACHIEVED THE RESULTS I DID SOLELY BECAUSE OF MICHELLE. SHE PUT TOGETHER A DIET AND EXERCISE PLAN THAT WAS EASY TO FOLLOW AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WORKED! I'VE NEVER FELT THIS PROUD AND COMFORTABLE WITH MY BODY AND SHE'S GIVEN ME THE CONFIDENCE TO PURSUE OTHER FITNESS GOALS. MICHELLE IS POSITIVE, SUPPORTIVE, FUN TO WORK WITH AND GENUINELY TAKES AN INTEREST IN HER CLIENTS AND LISTENS TO THEIR NEEDS. HER EXPERIENCE SHINES THROUGH IN HER ABILITY TO PUT TOGETHER CREATIVE EXERCISE PROGRAMS FOR ANYONE'S GOALS.
BOTTOM LINE, MICHELLE DELIVERS RESULTS! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MICHELLE TO ANYONE WANTING TO CHANGE THEIR LIFE AND LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH HER AGAIN.

I DON’T WANT TO CALL THESE BEFORE AND AFTER BECAUSE MY JOURNEY HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN. I HAD KNOWN MICHELLE FOR YEARS BUT HAD  ALWAYS BEEN TOO EMBARRASSED TO ASK FOR HER HELP AND HAD ALWAYS BEEN AFRAID THAT I COULDN’T COMMIT TO ANY PROGRAM SHE MIGHT WANT TO PUT ME ON. BUT I NEEDED AN EXPERT TO HELP ME. IN JANUARY OF 2015 I FINALLY REALIZED THAT STRONG WOMEN BUILD EACH OTHER UP AND I KNEW MICHELLE WOULD DO JUST THAT FOR ME. DURING OUR FIRST MEETING WE REVIEWED MY EATING HABITS AND SHE GAVE ME GREAT SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE SMALL CHANGES TO MY DIET THAT WOULD HAVE HUGE CHANGES ON MY BODY.  I WORK OUT ONCE A WEEK WITH MICHELLE WHEN I AM NOT TRAVELING (I TRAVEL A LOT) AND SHE GIVES ME GREAT IDEAS AND WAYS TO WORK OUT WHEN I AM ON THE ROAD TOO. I STARTED MY JOURNEY AS A 4’11’’ ROBUST 165 POUNDS WEARING A VERY TIGHT SIZE 18. WITH MICHELLE’S GUIDANCE, SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT AND TRAINING I AM DOWN TO 131 POUNDS AND A SIZE 6 JEANS. IT TAKES TIME AND DEDICATION; IT DOESN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR IT, BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT! I COULDN’T HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR WITHOUT MICHELLE AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW CONTINUING TO WORK WITH HER WILL CONTINUE TO CHANGE MY BODY.

"I REALLY LUCKED OUT AND HIT THE JACK POT WHEN I FOUND MICHELLE AS A TRAINER. SHE HAS A PASSION FOR TRAINING THAT TRULY MOTIVATES YOU TO BE BETTER THAN YOU EVER THOUGHT YOU COULD BE. SHE PROVIDES INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAMS THAT FOCUS ON YOUR PERSONAL STRENGTH TO BUILD YOUR CONFIDENCE AND YOUR PHYSIQUE AT THE SAME TIME. SHE HAS MADE THIS DIFFICULT JOURNEY FUN AND REWARDING.  I REALLY CANNOT SAY ENOUGH."

I CAME TO MICHELLE LOOKING TO GET BACK INTO SHAPE AFTER HAVING MY THIRD CHILD. I HAD ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR RUNNING AND OCCASIONALLY LIFTING WEIGHTS, BUT I NEVER WANTED TO PURSUE HEAVY LIFTING FOR THE FEAR OF “GETTING TOO BULKY OR LOOKING LIKE A MAN.” I JUST WANTED TO LOOK TONED AND LOSE MY BABY WEIGHT. SHE PUT ME ON A DIET PLAN THAT WAS EASY TO FOLLOW AND KEPT ME FEELING COMPLETELY SATISFIED AND FULL THROUGHOUT THE DAY. 9 WEEKS INTO HER DIET AND EXERCISE PLAN I WAS BACK TO MY PRE-PREGNANCY WEIGHT AND FEELING GREAT. I THEN GOT AN INTEREST FOR WHAT ELSE I COULD ACCOMPLISH. SHE LISTENED TO WHAT I WANTED AND WE BEGAN LIFTING WEIGHTS MORE FREQUENTLY. I SAW THE CHANGES COME MORE AND MORE EACH MONTH. BY THE MONTH OF MY SON'S 1ST BIRTHDAY I WAS BACK INTO PANT SIZES THAT I WASN’T IN SINCE BEFORE MY FIRST CHILD!!!! AND 3 MONTHS AFTER HIS 2ND BIRTHDAY, I COMPETED IN MY FIRST FIGURE COMPETITION. MICHELLE IS SO WONDERFUL AT WHAT SHE DOES AND ALWAYS DOES IT WITH YOUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND. NO MATTER WHAT YOUR FITNESS OR HEALTH GOAL MAY BE, WITH THE RIGHT ATTITUDE AND DEDICATION ON YOUR PART, YOU CAN GET THERE WITH HER HELP, ENCOURAGEMENT AND KNOWLEDGE! I WILL BE RECOMMENDING HER TO ANY AND EVERY WOMAN I KNOW. I COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN TO THIS POINT WITHOUT HER HELP!

I'M AN ACTIVE 62 YEAR OLD GRANDMOTHER OF TWO & HAVE BEEN A CLIENT OF MICHELLE'S FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. I WAS INTERESTED IN CONDITIONING AND FITNESS AND HAD BEGUN AN AT HOME FITNESS REGIMEN BUT FELT THAT I WAS NOT ACHIEVING THE RESULTS THAT I WANTED. I SPOKE TO MY FAMILY PHYSICIAN ON THE MATTER WHEN HE GAVE ME A REFERRAL TO MICHELLE TO SEE IF SHE COULD HELP. SINCE COMING TO MICHELLE IT IS EASY TO MAINTAIN MOTIVATION & COMMITMENT TO A PROGRAM THAT SHE HAS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR ME. I FIND THE WORKOUTS TO BE CREATIVE & TO ADDRESS MY SPECIFIC FITNESS GOALS. I HAVE HAD NOTICEABLE IMPROVEMENT IN MY HEALTH WITH SUSTAINED MEASUREMENTS IN BONE DENSITY TESTS & I FEEL STRONGER IN MY DAILY ACTIVITIES. I THINK IT EVEN HELPED MY GOLF GAME A LITTLE!

WHEN MICHELLE ASKED ME IF I WOULD BE WILLING TO WRITE A REFERRAL FOR HER WEBSITE IT WAS AN EASY DECISION TO VOICE MY SUPPORT FOR HER AS A TRAINER. I HAD BEEN WORKING OUT ON MY OWN FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, WORKING WITH PROGRAMS AND IDEAS FROM VARIOUS FITNESS SOURCES SUCH AS MAGAZINES & GROUP CLASSES, BUT STILL WASN'T OBTAINING THE OUTCOME THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. MICHELLE HAS CREATED BOTH CHALLENGING & SPECIFIC PROGRAM DESIGNS THAT HAVE REALLY SHOWED ME MY TRUE POTENTIAL. SHE'S VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT DIET & HAS HELPED ME MAKE SOME SIMPLE CHANGES TO THE WAY I EAT. IN THE LAST YEAR WHILE WORKING WITH MICHELLE I HAVE SEEN NOTICEABLE RESULTS IN MUSCLE TONE & AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY RESULTS!

I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH MICHELLE FOR 3 YEARS. ALONG WITH THE BENEFITS OF TONED MUSCLES, CARDIOVASCULAR ENDURANCE AND LOWER BODY FAT, I AM STRONGER IN MY DAY-TO-DAY ACTIVITIES. LIFTING BAGS OF GROCERIES, DIGGING IN THE GARDEN AND PLAYING FRISBEE WITH MY SONS ARE EASY NOW. ALSO, I DON'T HAVE THE ACHING BACK EACH MORNING I USED TO HAVE. MICHELLE PUSHES ME WHEN I NEED IT, BUT IS COMPASSIONATE WHEN I'M HAVING AN "OFF" DAY. SHE MOTIVATES ME TO DO MY BEST! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MICHELLE AS A PERSONAL TRAINER.

MICHELLE HAS AN INNATE ABILITY TO BALANCE YOUR PERSONAL FITNESS GOALS WITH LIFE. SHE’S NOT SIMPLY A PERSONAL TRAINER, BUT A TRUE MENTOR AND A COACH. SHE CUSTOMIZES AND INDIVIDUALIZES EVERY TRAINING SESSION! SHE OFFERS CHALLENGES BUT ALWAYS WITH FORM AND SAFETY AS THE FIRST PRIORITY. I’VE BEEN WORKING WITH MICHELLE FOR ALMOST 5 YEARS AND I CERTAINLY HAVE HAD SOME “UPS AND DOWNS” WITH THE MADNESS OF WORK, FAMILY, AND LIFE IN GENERAL. SERIOUSLY, IT’S JUST A GIVEN FOR EACH OF US! MICHELLE’S POSITIVE SPIRIT, PASSION FOR FITNESS, ENERGY AND ENGAGEMENT KEEP ME MOVING, HEALTHY, FUNCTIONALLY STRONG AND FIT. SHE IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MY LIFE AND I CAN’T THANK HER ENOUGH!
