From the clients themselves
"For the last 2 years I have been on and off diets, in and out of the gym and making excuses as to why I wasn't seeing results with what I was doing. I LOVE SWEETS (and salt), and would eat junk food on the regular to fill cravings, it was taking a toll on my physical AND mental health and I was constantly feeling so crumby about everything..until I started Michele's meal plan. I told myself I needed to do this for ME and really stick to it this time! Thankfully the plan was written out from week 1 all the way to week 4 so I could clear my pantry of junk and plan my shopping list well ahead of time! I was also able to get ahold of her any time I needed! I can't tell you how much that helped, like when I felt super overwhelmed about going on vacation/ eating right while there, or when I just wanted to celebrate my own little triumphs she was there for me! I kicked my crazy cravings for sugar and sodium in the butt in just the first few weeks, and now I feeling so good! I don't know how to put it all into words honestly. I'm excited to continue my journey and add in fitness coaching next!"
"I've worked with Michele on two separate occasions for nutrition coaching. The first time I worked with her, I felt I knew the bare minimum...and was starting to feel a bit low energy and lethargic during workouts and throughout the day. There was a huge void of carbs in my diet (not intentional) and while at first I just wanted the macronutrient calculations, I quickly knew I was going to need her to champion me through coaching to gradually add carbs to restore my energy and recovery. Michele suggested a few specific foods to accommodate...and she coached me through some tough psychological moments of doubting the process. This was key. The second time I worked with Michele, I had just reached a milestone and was kind of like "what should be next?" We adjusted my macros again and incorporated rest days. This was kind of a blend of nutrition and mindfulness. We got real deep sharing past stuff and she put things in perspective - helping me to understand moderation (treats,) rest (active and full,) and how those both effect getting physically stronger. Who knew I'd also get mentally stronger. If you're into having a cherished connection with your coach, then Michele should be your coach. She is true to her brand, she makes the process painless and you feel all the feels of her champion character."
"Just a big giant thank you!! You've given me so many tools to use to build healthier patterns. I didn't think I would ever do personal training. I think intimidation was the thing most in my way. But knowing you a bit and knowing your intentions made me feel SAFE doing this. And I know you know this, but that's so so important. Thank you for everything!
"Thank you so much!!!!! You're amazing and always know what to say, you GET IT! I've had other trainers before not understand why I can't just cut everything out of my eating all at once or just don't relate to anything I always felt kind of judged in a way...but you definitely relate and relay your messages in a way that makes me feel good! THANK YOU. I'm so glad I decided to do this with you! I am getting better each week thanks to your guidance and wise words."
"I've learned that mistakes are ok, and that I shouldn't beat myself up if I have a little something that doesn't quite fit my program. Life goes on regardless of what I eat or drink, and dwelling on any regret isn't going to get me anywhere. Knowing that they majority of the time I make smart choices is enough."
"I feel so much more energized, focused and have so much self love right now. I wouldn't have started this journey without the inspiration and support of my coach."
