Dr. Michelle is a velvet hammer and has the ability to help you pull the best out of yourself and achieve your peak performance…whoever you are and wherever you start. We became fast friends and I am so glad that we are still working out together.


I recently found myself in the terrifying position of discovering I had “open water phobia.” Dr. Michelle gave me practical physical as well as psychological tools. She went above and beyond, offering to go IN the water WITH me to help me, breath by breath and stroke by stroke. Two days later, I did my first blissful one-mile swim in the bay that felt effortless and awesome.
