    I am so glad I have Michele in my corner!! We've been working together for about 15 years. What I especially admire about her, other than her excellent listening skills, is her ability to shift her plan on a moment's notice. If she asks me to do a particular exercise but it hurts somewhere in my body, as soon as I tell her we stop that exercise and she immediately substitutes another exercise that works the same target area but spares what's hurting me today. Even though she plans my workouts in advance, she can shift one exercise or the entire workout to meet me where I am that day. She holds me accountable for meeting my exercise and weight loss goals, but she hangs in there with me when I come up short. And she is so enthusiastic in her positive reinforcement! Michele brings "the complete package!"

    Thank you for this! We have been together a long time, so I feel I can say the same. You keep showing up, for our sessions, for yourself, and that makes all the difference.

    I feel like I was going in the right direction with fitness and nutrition but I was stuck in a rut. Michele helped me take a look at all aspects of my life, see where my weak points were and helped me form a clear vision of my goals. Then she helped me build a plan to address those weak areas and rectify the issues by breaking them down into small manageable steps. Sleep was a huge issue and sugar cravings. She helped me devise a plan to help with both of those so that I can see even more results in my wellness journey. I really like how Michele can look at the big picture and help you reach both your short term and long term goals through small manageable steps!

    All positive comments for Michelle DeJesus. I started with Michelle 6 years ago at 340 pounds. She has provided a program for me to become healthier and to lose 101 pounds. There have been many plateaus, but she always has the knowledge to change my program and diet to continue the weight loss. She is very conscientious, dependable, professional, caring and very knowledgeable. She is always very encouraging towards her clients and wants to help them meet their goals. Her knowledge of nutrition has been as valuable for me as the physical training.
