Michele Salinas

Stockton, CA 95207

am a mother of 3 girls, 14, 17, and 20. I have become a fan of Chalene Johnson, creator of TurboKick, Hip Hop Hustle and the home workouts Turbo Jam and TurboFire. I have always been a high energy person, who loves to make people laugh and enjoy themselves. In the last two years I have completely changed my way of thinking due to the amazing teachings of Chalene. I am still that upbeat crazy person that draws people to me, but i have learned how to not only show people how to enjoy themselves, but enjoy who they are. You have to be happy with number 1, YOU, or cannot help others. Some may say, sure, I can fake my kindness and happiness to others. Yes, you can, but only for short period of time before it takes a toll on YOU, and then others recognize that you were not sincere in your ways. Helping others be happy, makes me happy. I cannot get a better feeling than when someones life has changed because I took the time to be sincere in what I genuinely, love to do. Workout, inspire others and most of all HAVE A GOOD TIME WHILE DOING IT!

I served in the U.S. Army and even was in Desert Storm for the last 6 months of the war. I have been married for 20 years, and with 3 teenage daughters, I can really say I have expereinced an amazing life in my last 40 years. The older I get, the better life seems to get, I figure that is because I grow wiser with each passing day.

"I have to workout each day and watch my diet in order to maintain my weight. So, I understand all the frustrations and hard work that come with a healthy life style, but I also know it works. You cannot keep making excuses to start "tomorrow". Start now and make it a priority! I do each and everyday. Put it on your "to-do" list and DO IT!"

    Live Well Be Strong is an amazing place to have fun, get fit and make new friends. Michele is the best instructor and I've been with her for a few years now for Turbokick classes. It is always a fun and sweaty time. I've really improved my overall fitness due to Michele's guidance, enthusiasm and inspiration. She really helps you to want to become a better person. I love Michele and Live Well Be Strong! And they are constantly getting better and better each day with programs and time slots to fit anyone's needs. The facility is awesome and there are lots of fun events and activities on top of the regular class schedule. There is no better place to go to get healthy and feel great!

    Live Well Be Strong was a blessing in disguise. I was looking for a comfortable place to shed a few pounds and this was the spot! Just being greeted by my first name as I walk in the door made me feel like I was "a part" of something. And the workouts...OMG! I have never worked out in such a way and although exhausted at the end, I was smiling through the whole thing! The energy level was amazing, the enthusiasm was always positive and watching those pounds "fall off" one by one only made me WANT MORE! Michele is a wonderful instructor, who cares about her "students". Her smile lights up the room and her laugh is completely contagious! Thank you Michele for being you and making working out such a FUN thing to do! Looking back I wonder why I didn't join Live Well Be Strong sooner!

    I’ve been a client of Live Well Be Strong (Michele’s) for about a year. Within this last year Michele has helped me obtained personal fitness goals that I once thought were unreachable. Michele is always upbeat, full of energy, and very motivating. I always look forward to my workouts with Michele...burning tons of calories while having a great time!!! I always joke around and say Live Well Be Strong is my “home away from home”, but it feels just like family...you’re missed when your not there, and greeted with Michele’s beautiful smile when you return. She is truly an instructor who cares for her clients, understands the struggles, and loves what she does!! Michele changed my life in more ways than she knows, and I am honored to have such a dedicated, inspiring, beautiful-inside-and-out woman be my instructor, mentor, and friend!! Thank you, Michele for everything...you’re awesome!!!
