Team Bio Michelle

Michelle Williams

Certified Personal Trainer & Yoga Instructor

I love learning and educating others on the benefits of overall health and wellness, which is why personal training has been great for me. I’ve been a personal trainer for a little over 5 years and enjoy connecting with others to help them find a workout plan that meets them where they’re at and allows them to progress along the way.

Outside of training others, I enjoy my own personal workouts, cooking interesting things, finding bargains, traveling and studying. Our bodies are designed for movement which is why I’m an advocate for implementing stability and mobility exercises into programs. My goal is to help each person to find joy in movement, feel good, and have fun along the way. Why not be the best version of yourself.
