Client Success Stories
“I have been working with Michelle for personal training over two years, and I can whole-heartedly say that she has been instrumental in helping me to currently be in the best shape of my life! I have been successful in losing over 25 pounds and more importantly have improved my overall health dramatically due to the guidance and support I have received from Michelle. She is excellent at her job and is a wealth of knowledge. She is very approachable and is always enjoyable and easy to work with. She keeps my workouts both interesting and challenging, making sure that they are always tailored perfectly to my current fitness level. Michelle also always makes sure that I am training in a safe and efficient manner. I highly recommend Michelle Berry for personal training; whether you are new to exercise or looking for a boost to your current fitness regime, Michelle can help you to get to where you want to be!”

“I have worked with many different trainers in the past, but none of them have helped me reach my goals...until I started working with Michelle. I have lost over 13 pounds so far, from my goal of 20 pounds, in just a little over 3 months. Her expertise in nutrition was a big part of what has helped me attain my goals. That, in addition to her personal training experience. I don't think we've ever repeated a workout - she always keeps things interesting and has opened my eyes to a new way of becoming healthy and fit, without exercising too much and simply changing minor things in my diet. I am so grateful to have met her and am constantly learning new things. I expect to continue working with her for as long as I can. I highly recommend her to anyone who is tired of being overweight but is not sure where to start."

“I am a 63 year old woman who will be retiring soon. I have been overweight for most of my life and have tried all kinds of diets and weight loss programs, including Weight Watchers. I became concerned that with retirement in sight and more time at home I may gain even more weight unless I make a change in lifestyle. I discussed my situation with Michelle Berry. She came out to my house and guided me through information needed to make the right choices relating to nutrition...even going through my kitchen cabinets and fridge pointing out what good AND BAD choices I have made when purchasing food items. She also took me grocery shopping to show me what choices I should be making when shopping for groceries. With her assistance I have made changes in my daily habits that have allowed me to lose 15 pounds. I feel great and enjoy my new lifestyle, and look forward to continuing it.”
"I have been working with Michelle Berry since November of 2010. When I started I was concerned about my health and weight. She took a sincere interest in my story. She developed a specific plan just for me. After the first year I hit a plateau with the weight loss and couldn’t seem to get past it. Michelle suggested I change my eating habits. Now, nutrition, exercise, strength, balancing and overall health is a regular part of each of my workout sessions. I have managed to keep the 30 pounds off with some minor ups and downs with Michelle’s support, help and encouragement. She is motivating, encouraging, organized, and flexible. She always holds me accountable. She develops an overall realistic plan that is suited for my goals and needs. I am continuously getting stronger and healthier.
I also am a regular member of a small group fitness she trains that meets on Thursdays for circuit-type training. Again, this is just a super fun way to get in shape with a slight competitive edge that is fun and well planned out. She takes into consideration each of our strengths and abilities and has alternatives for each thing we do-again holding us all accountable and encouraging us the whole time!
I am certainly glad that fate stepped in and had me sign up with Michelle. She is truly a driving force in my overall health and fitness plan. I am really not sure where I would be without her help!"

Her commitment to helping a client reach their individual goals is nothing short of amazing. Her ability to motivate is unbelievable and she always strives to make sure you are constantly being challenged. If you are looking for a trainer who truly understands what being healthy and fit is all about, Michelle Berry is a trainer you can absolutely trust who will do everything in her power to help you realize your fullest potential!”

"I have been one of Michelle's clients for a year and a half doing mostly small group training, but also some individual sessions. Michelle is very good at assessing a person's current fitness level, goals, and motivation level and creates plans tailor-made for her clients. She is very adept at motivating me and knows just how hard to push without being too over the top. She is extremely knowledgeable not to mention has a great personality which makes working out fun, especially when you see results. Since she is also a nutrition counselor, she offers many helpful tidbits in that department as well."

“Michelle has worked and coached me through many life changes, improving my fitness level, and overseeing a nutrition program that allowed me to safely lose 32 pounds. I have had the opportunity to work with Michelle for over a year. I started working with general fitness as a goal. At my initial assessment we learned how unstable my core and balance were. A gradual training program from the basics started. I learned how to properly do a lunge, develop my core, and progress to improved fitness and cardio. I signed up for the most recent 90 day challenge and weighed in at a staggering 231 pounds. With Michelle's coaching we ended the 90 day at 199 pounds.”

“I began working with Michelle shortly after becoming pregnant. My goals were not the same as most clients as I was not trying to lose or maintain weight. In fact, I knew I would be gaining a lot of weight and my body image would change dramatically. During my initial consultation with Michelle, I shared with her my goals to have a natural childbirth and to be both physically and mentally prepared for the emotional and physical distress. Michelle was extremely supportive of my goal and began working on plans to build physical strength & balance while maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
I worked with Michelle twice a week throughout my entire pregnancy. In fact, I was in the gym Monday, May 16th and I gave birth to my daughter Wednesday, May 18th. Michelle created fun yet challenging sessions for me which did increase my strength and balance and also my mental strength as she coached and encouraged me to complete each set within the session.
Working with Michelle, not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. When I spoke to other pregnant women, they often complained about physical pain and discomfort. I had an exceptional pregnancy with no body aches or pains and I credit that to the wonderful physical health I maintained with direct guidance and supervision from Michelle. I also met my goal of having an all natural pregnancy. My body had the strength and endurance it needed to get through each contraction; and the mental strength to breathe and cope with each contraction. After a twelve hour labor, we were introduced to our beautiful and healthy daughter. Thanks to all the training I did during pregnancy, my body was then ready to meet the needs of our precious baby.”
"I started working with Michelle in 2013. I was worried about working with a personal trainer because of my health issues, wondering if a trainer would understand my specific needs and be able to add benefit. Michelle did and beyond! She trains to meet each person's unique goals. Working with Michelle, I learned so much. How to truly eat healthy and exercise properly. For the first time, I saw results! My goal was to feel better but I got an added benefit of looking better too! Thank you, Michelle, for your hard work and dedication to helping people live healthier lives!"

"It was my good fortune to meet Michelle in April 2015 when she volunteered to participate in the health fair event I was implementing for my employer. In June that year, Michelle offered an informative and complimentary nutritional class. She had me hooked with her knowledge, and with her fun personality. I knew I wanted to have her by my side on this up-hill climb. With Michelle’s guidance I went from 117 lbs to 103 lbs on my 5’1”, 64-year-old frame. My weight doesn’t waiver, as in increase, due to the satisfying nutritional life I now lead and love. Equally as important is that I feel great, and I look great.
Michelle and I had much work ahead of us from me not drinking nearly enough water, to smarter eating habits, and the best foods for the body to thrive on. I received an invaluable education from her on every nutritional level.
Michelle also reaches out to her clients on an emotional level. She knows the commitment we need to make for this to be a success for ourselves, and she wants it for us as much as we do. She is supportive, and remindful of the importance of self-compassion and a positive state of mind. Michelle would remind me of how negative stress is and how it affects the body, which I am now in-tune to and immediately release.
I am very grateful to have Michelle in my life."

"I've worked with Michelle for over 3 years, and at 56 years old I'm in the best shape of my life! Her unique training, coaching, and FUN workouts never get old and I eagerly look forward to my weekly sessions. You owe it to yourself to stay fit and healthy; Michelle can get you, and more importantly, keep you there!"
