Awaken

For over ten years I have been working as a personal trainer, yoga instructor and lifestyle coach within all aspects of the fitness industry. My work has taken me around the world, where I have studied various cultures and their approach to fitness, nutrition, lifestyle and spirituality. I have designed the MT3 Fitness & Nutrition Plan around these key aspects of life. I personally believe that fitness begins from within, working its way outwards to a healthy looking you. First one needs to remember self-love, no judgments, enjoy life, learn to take care of yourself, release and just breath. This change has a rippling effect not only on yourself but those around you. Combing my training experience and knowledge of world fitness techniques I have created a program that can be used by anyone of any level of fitness. It is designed to be fun, simple, inspiring and teach a overall healthy lifestyle.

Design the perfect routine for you, by combining the sections of the MT3 Fitness & Nutrition Plan which work within your needs, goals and lifestyle. Life as you know it is just beginning, now look forward to the NEW better YOU! I am so excited to be part of your journey towards creating a body and life you love!

Keep it simple,

–Michelle
