Live It Well….

In 2009, I hit my rock bottom and realized that the only way I was going to make myself a better wife, mother and woman was to pick myself up and do the work to get where I wanted to be. It was that defining moment that something shifted deep inside of me and I realized that not only would my body improve ten-fold with proper fitness and exercise, but more importantly my LIFE would improve. Shortly after my life-changing wake-up call, the unthinkable happened and my husband of nine years was killed in a small plane crash. Despite the tragedy that was unfolding in my personal life, I dug deep and realized that at this moment in time, I needed fitness more than ever. It was this intense inner fire and voice that told me I could not quit on my fitness.

In the following year, I tapped into that fire and used exercise to help pain and grief wash over me. What I learned is that exercise saved again and again, day after day. I began to realize that I had stumbled on something that was not only monumental and life-saving for me personally, but it was something that needed to be shared with every stressed out and grieving person on our planet. With each new workout, I found resolve, strength, inner peace, and even normality at a time I so desperately needed all of those things.

As the months and years wore on, I realized that this gift I had been given needed to be shared and repositioned, not as a means to a better body but using fitness as a means to a better LIFE. From that place of real understanding, I found my passion for starting my training company, My1FitLife. Today I have the honor of training thousands of people worldwide to not only get healthier and happier but to use fitness as a way to work through their grief, their stress, their anxiety, and their pain.

“Healthy Healing gives life to the notion that there can be beauty in the places that feel broken. Through her own powerful story, Michelle connects on a deep level with the reader and speaks such truth! Her message is that you are not alone; because while your journey is unique, unfortunately for us all, loss is not. She empowers the reader to lace up their shoes and get moving to a healthier life of hope and healing, to become a living legacy in a way that really honors our loved ones.”

—Bonnie Carroll, President and Founder of Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and 2015 Recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom

“I have never seen the road to ‘everything is going to be okay’ more clearly than in the pages of this book. It’s not just a call to action. It’s a call to life. Michelle takes your hand from page one and doesn’t let it go. I wish I had had this book as my companion and guide years ago.”

—Laura Munson, New York Times bestselling author of This Is Not the Story You Think It Is and founder of Haven Writing Retreats

“Healthy Healing will not only guide you through your grief—it will literally save your life. It is about time we have a book that doesn’t leave the body behind after loss.”

—Christina Rasmussen, Author of Second Firsts: Live, Laugh and Love Again

“Practical, relatable, and life-affirming, Healthy Healing is a valuable resource for any grieving person. This is not a book you will read one time; this is a book you will return to over and over as a source of inspiration and an encyclopedia of daily steps to facilitate holistic healing. Michelle has not only found her own path through unthinkable tragedy, but she has created a roadmap for people facing any of life’s challenges. Mitch must be so proud.”

—Michele Neff Hernandez, Founder and Executive Director, Soaring Spirits International

“Michelle is an authentic living example of her own wise guidance on the power of endorphins and exercise being a way to heal and empower your own heroes journey. May it propel you on your solo or even better, community, walk into a bright, renewed future full of unlimited possibility. Life changing from the inside out!”
