Get to know your trainer...
Hi ya’ll, my name is Michele Genesis! I am married to Brandon, he’s my best friend and biggest supporter. We have two very spoiled dogs, Boston and Roxie. We are from Arizona, but have been living in Texas for over 6 years now and are thankful that we get to call Texas home. We love to travel and one of our favorite places to visit is Hawaii. We also enjoy brewing our own beer, and visiting local breweries wherever we travel to. I won’t pass up a glass of wine or a piece of chocolate and enjoy baking, especially sweet treats. If we aren’t traveling and the weather is nice, you will typically find us out on our boat at the lake.
I have had my own struggles with weight gain, dieting fails and body image acceptance over the years. I have been on quite the journey to get where I am today, but learned a lot through it and for that I am grateful. 2020 was a rough year for a lot of people and my mental health took a pretty big hit, I wasn’t taking care of myself and the weight quickly piled on. I left a good paying and “comfortable” corporate job in order to not only pursue my dreams but to also take better care of myself. I implemented my own programs, aka I put into practice what I preached and in turn lost 45 pounds and have kept it off. During this process it really helped me better understand what my clients are going through, since I have been there myself. I am not only a better version of myself now, not necessarily because of the weight loss but because I feel the best I have in a really long time both mentally and physically, but I am also a better trainer and coach because of what I went through and I understand more than most what a tough journey this can be.
Lastly, a little bit about my credentials…I graduated from Arizona State University (go devils) with my Bachelors in Nutrition. I am a NASM Certified Nutrition Coach, Personal Trainer and Certified Sports Nutrition Coach. I also have my Masters degree in Health Psychology. My heart has always been with health and wellness and I am excited to be a part of your journey. Please reach out with any questions, I can’t wait to hear from you!
