Michaela developed her love for fitness at a young age while growing up in a health and fitness centered household. She knew as an adult, a career helping people better their health and wellbeing was the only route she wanted to take.


After graduating college, Michaela began working in the field immediately. She took a job with her hometown gym teaching classes, personal training and working in member services. After about a year, she moved onto a career in corporate wellness and hasn’t looked back since.


Michaela’s goal as your fitness center manager is to bring a healthy and safe workout environment per the current situation. Her promise is to provide exciting classes, upbeat attitudes, and programming that keeps you engaged while achieving your goals. Her everyday mantra is - always aspire to inspire. And she will do just that.
