Michelle Pollard, RYT-200, Owner, CPT, NASM, Nutrition Coach
A fitness enthusiast for many years, Michelle turned to yoga and Pilates to heal injuries from high-impact exercise. She immediately fell in love with Pilates and yoga. In 2008 she began training with Power Pilates in mat and apparatus. In 2012 she completed her 200-hr yoga certification at Yoga Mandali with Gopi Kunnicut. She continues to take workshops and training to improve her teaching skills in order to offer more effective classes and sessions. Michelle is fascinated by anatomy and alignment. She finds the human body an amazing vehicle. It is capable of so much more than we give it credit for. There is nothing more rewarding for her than having a client express how yoga or Pilates has changed their life for the better. Michelle holds certifications in a variety of modalities including Group Fitness, Personal Trainer, SPIN, and TRX. Her motto is ‘Movement Heals’
I've dedicated over a decade to the world of fitness and bodybuilding. If you're tired of chasing elusive fitness goals without seeing sustainable results, I'm here to help. As a former powerlifting and bodybuilding competitor, I bring firsthand knowledge and experience to my coaching, having helped numerous people transform their bodies and achieve remarkable results.
My coaching approach is built on two critical elements: Education and Building a relationship with you. I'm passionate about teaching proper nutrition and guiding you in developing a healthy and sustainable physique. I firmly believe in delivering personalized nutrition and training plans while ensuring you understand the "why" behind them. I understand that there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to an individual's diet and program. That's why I tailor diet and program changes to align with your specific circumstances at any given time.
Accountability is a crucial aspect of my coaching. I'll be there to support you every step of the way and teach you how to implement new habits into your lifestyle without resorting to extreme measures or shortcuts. I understand the frustration of feeling like you're constantly chasing an unattainable goal. Together, we'll break the cycle of starting over and help you maintain the results you've worked so hard for.
If you're ready to transform your approach to fitness and achieve lasting results, I'm here to guide you on that journey. Let's work together to create a healthier, stronger, and more confident version of you.
I wear many hats in life as a mom, a professional body builder, a nutrition coach, a teacher, and a realtor. Health and wellness are always at the forefront of my mind and are the foundation for all things as a means for bringing my very best to all aspects of my life. I work with individuals to educate and help create lifelong habits to achieve and maintain health and physique goals. My services differ from others as I offer not only education, but a collaborative approach including guided trips to the supermarket, custom recipes and food prep sessions so individuals have all the tools needed to be successful.
