Michelle Huston has been in the health and fitness industry as a certified professional since 1991. She started as a group exercise instructor, teaching almost every form of group exercise classes for eight and a half years, but then found her life's passion was working with individuals in one-on-one or partner sessions.
Michelle then became certified with the leading strength and conditioning certification organization, National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in 2000. Due to NSCA's strong focus in academia and research, she realized that she wanted to ground herself in scientific research rather than following the latest fads, so Michelle immediately enrolled in college. She graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Wellness in 2007. Michelle continued by completing her Master of Science degree, summa cum laude, in A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona, with a focus area in corrective exercise.
Michelle is a certified Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), which allows her to provide consistent results that allow her clients the ability to consistently reach new levels, whether in post-rehabilitation, reconditioning, or in performance enhancement of any sport or daily activity.
Michelle began working for Physicians Physical Therapy Service during her internship as part of her undergraduate degree as a physical therapy technician, and was then immediately hired as their exercise specialist/personal trainer upon the completion of her internship. In 2008, Physicians Physical Therapy Services asked Michelle to start a personal training/aftercare program at their Goodyear location, which provides personal training services for all types of health and fitness goals. The program is available to all individuals who are seeking to reach their highest potential, including all former rehabilitation patients.
