About me

Welcome! My name is Marisa Michael. I am a:

  • Registered Dietitian
  • Personal Trainer
  • Group Exercise Instructor
  • Speaker
  • Author

I love food. You probably do too! I love learning to balance good nutrition with enjoyment of food. I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for 16 years, helping people achieve health through nutrition.

I help athletes optimize nutrition for sports performance, from recreational to elite. I have a passion for fitness and wellness. I’ve completed numerous triathlons, ranging from sprint to half-iron distance. I know what it’s like to use performance nutrition for training and competing.

My skills as a certified personal trainer means I help you with both nutrition and exercise so you can  achieve your fitness goals. I hold the International Olympic Committee’s Diploma in Sports Nutrition, which is a prestigious certification program that only 700 people worldwide have accomplished. This means you will get only the best advice for your specific training needs.
