I love to stay active so anything where I’m moving especially outdoors is for me. Hiking, playing tennis, kayaking, running, and yoga are just some of my favorite things to do. I may not look like I’ve ever done this before but I also played rugby in college. It was a great experience because it definitely toughened me up a lot and made me a stronger person. Fitness is also a huge part of my life. Believe it or not I didn’t really get into strength training until the end of my college career. But then I finally started practicing what I preached and I’ll never look back. Michelle specializes in training weight loss clients.
