Favourite Way to Sweat

Michelle loves a good strength training session with quick HIIT intervals with an Inertia Wave, sprints, battle ropes, or skipping rope. She loves the feeling of strength after a good lift session, finished with some accessory work on the TRX, stability ball or functional trainer.

Favourite Way to Recover Post-Workout

Michelle strongly believes that there is nothing like a tasty protein recovery shake and a good stretch after a workout. 

Greatest Accomplishment

Michelle lists her greatest accomplishments as completing her degree, being chosen as one of Canada's top fitness trainers in both 2018 and 2020 by Impact Magazine, and giving birth to both her baby boys.

Living Your Best Life

To Michelle, living your best life means finding a healthy balance. By this she means having a positive relationship with the gym and food. The motto for her business, Core Conditioning, is "Train 4 life & be ready 4 anything" because she believes you don't always need a reason or an event to train hard, but its good to know you are always ready if anything should come up.
