Testimonials: What Women are Saying About Working with Me

“Michelle is not only backed with knowledge and experience, she brings her heart and compassion into training. She listens and focuses on your needs and is endlessly creative in helping build the skills you need to meet your goals. I always leave my sessions smiling because her warmth and enthusiasm are contagious and I’m stronger and more prepared to take on the rest of my day.” Laine A., Fiduciary Coordinator, Momma


“I’ve been working with Michelle as a personal trainer for over 6 months and have seen amazing results in that time. Michelle is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm she brings to every session. Her easy going, caring personality creates a safe, comfortable atmosphere. Yet, she makes each personalized workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! She also places a high value on correct form and the reason for doing each exercise. She motivates me to push past my perceived limits.  

I became pregnant in the time period I have been working with Michelle.  She immediately jumped to the task of modifying my sessions to meet my growing body at each stage of development.  Having her as a coach during this uncharted phase in my life has given me not just perfectly tailored workouts, but also much appreciated emotional support.” Wendy B., Third Grade Teacher, Momma To Be

“I have worked with many different trainers both in gyms and in my home over the past 15 years. Michelle is the best trainer I have worked with.  She pays attention to detail in both the planning and supervision of my workouts. She keeps them varied and interesting and never resorts to a common trainer shortcut of creating routine sets of exercises and repeating them periodically.  She works to help me progress but never pressures me to go beyond my comfort zone. I have a few physical limitations and she is mindful of those and constantly checks to ensure I am not overdoing it.  She is attentive and responsive to my needs, friendly and easy to work with.  She has my highest recommendation.” Mindy B., Retiree, Loving Dog Owner

“Michelle’s inspiring and positive presence is a gift in each class she teaches!  She’s not only uplifting and fun, however.  Michelle is also a very knowledgeable, down to earth and an authentic teacher.  She’s the real deal.  If you’re seeking a great workout where you’ll walk away feeling not only better in your body but in your heart, mind and soul, look no further.” Gage B., Professional Life Coach, Student

“Michelle is such a great trainer to work with. Her approach is very holistic, creative, knowledgeable, and super effective. She gives so much of herself to you through her work.  She pays attention to what you are working on and she works to motivate you to do your best. Her approach as a trainer is not just the physical workout because she incorporates wellness and mindfulness and even nutritional guidance if you are looking for it. One thing I really appreciate about Michelle is her workouts are fun. Her happiness and joy in what she is doing come out in her training and its one of the reasons I never want to miss a class.” Mary G., Marketing Manager RTA, Fitness Enthusiast

“For several years now, I have had the pleasure of taking Barre classes with Michelle. Nothing has made the difference in my health, my energy, or my shape, like her classes. Her relaxed and positive energy always puts me at ease, regardless of the day I’ve had. Her detailed instruction lets me know if my form is correct. But most importantly, she pushes me to be a better version of myself each and every class. Michelle is a warm, kind and inspiring teacher!” Katy N., Psychology Professor, Avid Barre Student
