Michelle was born in Hawaii, yet has spent most of her years in San Diego. She became involved in competitive sports at an early age. It was at this time she began to learn the importance of discipline, commitment and patience. She also learned the value of perseverance. It is her strong belief that small sacrifices are worth making to attain your desired goal. These traits have helped her become a highly respected and successful personal trainer.

Michelle is a graduate of San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Nutrition Science, specializing in Kinesiology. During her last year in college, she participated in her first fitness competition and placed 1st in Figure and 3rd in Fitness. Through this experience she truly understood that it takes more than desire to reach a health or fitness goal, it takes non-negotiable commitment.

Her passion for fitness is the premise of her business, “Powered By Passion (PBP) Fitness”.  She has made it her goal to motivate and educate people to live a healthy and active lifestyle. She is genuine in her concern for her clients’ health and this awareness shows in every session she conducts.

She subscribes to the importance of “Core and Functional Fitness” training since the body is designed to work as a whole, only as strong as its weakest link. She designs her clients’ fitness programs specific to strengthening that “weak link”.  Among other modalities, she favors the use of Kettlebells to strengthen core muscles, increase agility and mobility and provide aerobic activity.

Michelle teaches privately in home gyms, the park or the beach in North County San Diego (Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas, La Costa and Carlsbad).

“Exercise your passion for life…because the one life we are given is to be actively enjoyed.”
