    A fun and fabulous beginner-level 5K training group with a whole-woman approach!

Michelle made the sessions informative and fun and taught me that we are all runners (fast or slow, long distances or short). I never felt uncomfortable or like I didn't belong in the group; it was so encouraging to see young and old with all different body types.

As a result of Michelle's class, I am starting to believe I may be capable of more than I ever dared to dream before.

Michelle is an inspiration, a motivator, and a believer in others. I aspire to be as kind, aware, and real as she is. I will be running my third 5k because of the inspiring words and realistic no-BS approach she had on our first training day.

Hi, I'm Michelle!

Get ready for a little bit of sass and a whole lot of inspiration.

I am a long-time mover, massage therapist, and walking and running coach with a passion for empowering women to become

happy people in well-loved bodies. 

As a health coach, I encourage women into the outdoors because I believe that enjoyable movement boosts

confidence, self-love, and fitness.

Your body is already perfect and joyful movement is within your reach.  Let's get moving!
