Certified Group Fitness Instructor. Sixteen Years Experience. Certified AFAA Primary Group, Madd Dog Spin, Body Pump, Body Flow, CXWORX, and Metabolic Effect Certified Nutrition Consultant (in progress).

As a wife of 22 years and a mother of 3, Michelle's two decade exercise regimen has allowed her to live a rich and full life. Health and vitality have provided the foundation for managing her multiple priorities. Michelle's passion is helping others attain and maintain optimal health and vitality to fulfill their unique purpose in life. Her very approachable style, contagious energy, paired with a true desire to see others reach beyond their potential is why fitness enthusiasts love attending her classes. Michelle fuels performance with a wide range of motivational affirmations, "What you're feeling is not pain but sending you a wonderful message to say Hey You Are Alive and Well and This Is Good!" "You are Stronger Than You Think You Are", "We Celebrate the Gift of Movement and It Feels Great!"

Michelle's health conscience mom was absolutely opposed to processed foods, soda pop, kool-aid, boxed brownies, so she ate real food made from scratch. In essence, her life was built on a holistic approach to nutrition. Concluding that food is fuel through many years of experience and increased knowledge, she has brought awareness to her clients, acquaintances, family and friends on the importance of proper nutrition, despite what tricky labels and marketing may promote. When you’re racing the body like a high performance sports car, you must put the right gas in the tank.

Her motto, "Eat more, work out less, lift heavy things, stop counting calories, take leisurely walks, practice yoga, kiss the ones you love, and keep an attitude of gratitude."
