Welcome! My name is Marisa Michael. I am a:
Group Exercise Instructor
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 18 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. All this experience and education means I can help YOU optimize nutrition for training, competing, and health.
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 about 700 people worldwide have accomplished. This means you will get only the best advice for your specific training needs.
