New to the Woodbury area in 2018, Michelle was searching for something to do during the fall and winter when she can’t bike and run. She stopped into Energy and immediately was taken in by the awesome environment and instructors.
After sampling a good portion of the offerings, she met with Debra for an impromptu Reformer training. Debra asked her if she had ever thought about teaching fitness. Of course the answer was "yes" and now LOVES that she is a certified fitness instructor at Energy.
Michelle was born and raised in the Central Valley of California where she was an avid swimmer. She moved to northern Wisconsin in 1995. While living in Wisconsin, she developed a love for running and has completed a half marathon as well as numerous 10k and 5k races. She also has a vast collection of Beachbody DVD’s and other exercise videos as that was the only option for group exercise when she lived “up north”.
She’s been with the same company in the Twin Cities for twenty years and manages HR, Finance, AP & AR.
Michelle has a husband, four grown children, three grandboys and two geriatric Boston Terriers.
Michelle has discovered that her favorite races in Minnesota are the beer and wine runs!
