NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Cycle Fusion Level 1 Instructor, USAW Level 1 Sports Performance, Coach Crossfit L1, Crossfit Kids.

Michelle grew up with athletics as a major part of her life. She spent most of her childhood as a gymnast and dancer. As she progressed through middle school and high school, basketball and softball started to take more of a focus. She experienced “training” for the first time at Drexel University where she played softball and had her first real access to a Strength and Conditioning coach.
She earned her B.S. in Health Science and her M.S. in Sports Management.
Bootcamp is a combination of strength, cardio, muscle endurance, flexibility, core, and functional movement patterns. You get EVERYTHING you need!
We keep you moving and burning fat from the first minute to the very end!
– The After Burn! We use a scientifically proven exercise formula known as E.P.O.C. to increase your metabolism up to 12-16 hours after your workout! That’s right, burn fat for HOURS after your workout!
– NEVER Plateau! The body hates change! It would much rather do the same thing every minute of every day. Well we have news for you…when you do the same exercise routine day in and day out you stop seeing results or “plateau.” At Bootcamp we utilize the principle of muscle confusion. You will NEVER do the same workout twice! Why is this good? Because…your body will never adapt and you will never plateau! You will get results and they will come quick and continue to come…..month after month after month!
