About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My North park studio is the best women's only fitness studio on the planet! Our classes are small (no more then 5 students/class). We have a laid-back attitude yet everyone is driven to get fit & feel great. It's a place where women can feel comfortable working out and be part of a community where everyone knows your name and you belong. :)

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Everyday I go to work, I get to motivate, encourage, support, guide, teach, and counsel women on the most effective ways to train and eat to improve muscle tone, reduce stress and look great. The best part of my job, I get to celebrate milestones and cheer my students on as they accomplish what they thought was impossible. :)

    Prenatal massage - the BEST!
    I went to Michele for a prenatal massage and she is simply the best! She takes the time to get information on your preferences prior to the appointment so once you arrive, it is seamless. She also goes through the process (as this was my first prenatal massage) and explained everything. The massage itself was incredible. She worked through my knots and tight spots and I left feeling like a new person. Her soothing aura and dynamic personality are also bonuses. :) Michele is amazing and I would recommend her for anyone looking for a fantastic massage experience.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The 4 most important pieces of information would be: Make sure that you and your trainer see eye to eye on your goals. Make sure your trainer's personality syncs with you. Your trainer should earn your trust and practice what she/he preaches.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1.)Be honest with the professional. Let them know exactly what you expect and your time line for the project to be completed. 2.) Ask the professional, what steps they will take to keep you on track if you "fall of the wagon". 3.) Ask the professional, what options they offer for a limited budget. Let's face weight loss is not easy. When you find a dedicated pro to work with, you don't want stop your progress just because financially you can't afford personal training. See if your pro offers reduced packages for dedicated clients, buddy training, small group training, boot camps (etc). If there's a will, there's a way. :)
