Michele has been my Pilates trainer for over a year now. Since working with her weekly, I have now regained the body I longed for after having three children. I am lean, happy, and feel strong and healthy. Her expertise regarding the body's structures is incredible. With each session I find myself more and more impressed with how easily she can alter the program to accommodate my particular needs of the day, and the results are truly amazing. She can motivate you beyond your own expectations but still never seems too demanding. I actually enjoy working with her immensely. All the compliments I get now are not too bad either! Give it a try with her, you will not be disappointed.
