Are you ready to transform your life and live in flow with your feminine superpowers?
My biggest AHA moment came when I realised I was not a small man !!! I was brought up in a small town in ireland, a teenager of the 90’s when roxette and Nirvana rocked the dance floors. Also a time when from a young age I was taught that working hard all the time was the only way to succeed. Be like the boys and that was how the world worked. Having periods was not something we were brought up to be proud of. They were something to be hidden and not talked about. I still remember the mortification of going to a check out to buy tampons from a male worker. I carried this attitude into my early thirties even after I had finished my Nutrition studies in Australia. It wasn’t until my own personal fertility issues, numerous miscarriages, low body confidence, and randomly(perhaps the universe telling me!) coming across my mentor Nicole Jardim that the pieces started coming together. It set me off on a journey of self-discovery to optimise my own health, learning how to optimise my hormones, understanding the best movement for women NOT men and which food specifically can be the catalyst to achieving what we want in life. It certainly changed mine! I’m a busy proud mummy of two, and I am passionate about passing this knowledge on to empower other women to achieve health & vitality in order to create Happy hormones, success and confidence in all areas of their lives. There is no “one fix for all”, it’s simply about learning to work with your body, not against it! Which is why I turned my experience into supporting Women like you whether you have cycles or not. Having moved back to ireland after 17 years in London I am now bringing period coaching and education to the south west of ireland. I guess the Universe again has brought me full circle back to where it all began… allowing me the opportunity to make sure no Women ever feels ashamed about their bodies and understandign how much power we have over our health, hormones, life .
I approached Michelle because I was desperately needing help with my Fertility, Tender Breasts and sleep problems. The Dutch Hormone testing process was really easy and I found the information extremely motivating and gave me a lot of answers on where to focus on to improve my symptoms and work on my fertility. As a result of working with Michelle I learnt to not give up and stay motivated. I have also seen great improvements with my digestion and sleep.
I reached out to Michelle when I was at my lowest point. I am in menopause; I work with the homeless and I was working around the clock. My body was in fight or flight mode. My gut was reacting, and I was not well. The conversation I had with Michelle was simply life changing for me. As we were in lockdown, we did the consultation via Zoom. I quickly changed my eating habits, listened to Michelle, took the supplements that Michelle recommended and before I knew it my gut was healing, and I was feeling better than I have ever felt. My skin was better, I was sleeping better, no headaches, my stress levels were less and I was feeling better than I had done in ages. I cannot recommend Michelle highly enough. It will be the best decision you can make.
I reached out to Michelle after I had a baby and I needed help with restoring my energy levels, mobility and drive. Michelle helped me with getting back into an exercise routine, rebuilding my fitness levels and becoming more mindful about my eating patterns. She did it through gradually increasing my exercise levels, analysing my food diary and providing some practical and, importantly, doable, advice about my diet and physical activity. As a result of working with Michelle, I have improved my confidence levels and self-image and, I hope, some of the good eating and physical activity habits are firmly established in my routines.
Michelle is super hard working and committed to your fitness, health and overall wellness. I don’t think I’ve met anyone as dedicated to her clients. It’s not just about the correct fitness regime, Michelle will nurture you to achieve your goals
I have trained with Michelle for more than 6 years and I can honestly say she is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. Michelle offers a blend of expert nutritional advice (but in a realistic and balanced way) along with first rate strength and fitness training that really delivers results. Michelle will work you hard but in a way that will make you want to work. Not only does she deliver great instruction and results but she lives her advice and having two small children understands the challenges of juggling work, family and exercise! I have a lot of fun but also know I’ve worked really hard! Highly recommend Michelle!!
I am starting fertility treatment want to be in the best physical and mental shape so that I have the best chance of success. Michelle has been brilliant and very positive and supportive. She looked at my diet and made me a personalised plan with some great suggestions and recipes. It has given me the confidence to mindfully think about what I’m eating to make sure I nourish my body. I have dramatically cut down on processed sugar and have introduced more pulses and beans etc and am feeling really good. I consciously try and include a wide variety of foods throughout the day rather than just always eating the same things. Diet chances have also really improved my eczema. I’ve also upped my exercise as well and am feeling really positive. The changes I have made have had a knock-on effect on my family and we are all eating better. Thanks Michelle!
I have been coming to Michelle’s Strong Mamas classes for several months during my maternity leave - both when they were live at the Carpenter’s Arms and now online through Zoom. I always enjoy the sessions - great bunch of other mums and really nice sense of community, plus I always ached at the end so knew it was working! My fitness and strength has improved and Michelle is great at focusing on individual technique, which has been really helpful, even in there online classes. I would recommend the Strong Mamas classes!
I started going to Michelle’s classes since my baby was 6 weeks old and he is now 6 months. I have lost all my baby weight and can attribute that to Michelle’s classes and advice. Her classes are really enjoyable as she adapts the class to your level and how far post natal you are. She makes sure that you start back to exercise in a safe way and have the right technique as well as making it more challenging when you are ready. What are you waiting for? If you are looking to return to exercise safely or get back in shape since having a baby then give it a go!
Training with Michelle is varied, fun and most importantly, always enjoyable - so much better (whatever the weather!) than being stuck in a gym doing the same old routines. Michelle works hard to make sure no two sessions are the same and that they're always well put together. Michelle's also full of great information and advice on diet and nutrition - this coupled with her training sessions, continually produces fantastic all round results. I've always tried to stay healthy and stick to exercising but Michelle's sessions are the first thing that have genuinely held my attention and pushed me to achieve gradually more and more through exercise. There is the added bonus of flexible days/times week to week - very important when you're super busy and trying to hold down an effective regime! Whatever your goals - improved fitness, getting in shape, finding something new, or just living well, I'd absolutely recommend Michelle to help you achieve them.
I have trained with Michelle since 2012 when I was training for my first marathon and without her I would not have got through it especially as I had never run before and did not exercise much then. She helped me build the right muscle groups and is always motivational. Over the years working out with her, I really enjoy training now and it has become a big part of my life. Michelle's group classes are always fun and the time flies by even though she's worked us hard. I also highly recommend her as a nutritionist, she has often provided me with great nutrition advice especially training for long runs. Michelle is very passionate about all her clients and helps them achieve their goals. Thanks, Michelle, for putting up with me over the years 😊
Michelle has brought a number of educational talks to my VIP Fashion membership group Topics such as women's health including weight loss, hormones, gut health and exercise women members. What I enjoyed the most about Michelle and her sessions are that they’re easy to follow and Michelle is so friendly and approachable you can watch her talking for hours!
I was an International Netball Umpire for 6 years, training regularly either by myself or with various personal trainers. In 2014 I was fortunate enough to be appointed to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and I knew I needed to be even more focused and work particularly on training that was relevant to my sport. I was introduced to Michelle and can honestly say it was the best thing that could have happened. Michelle listened, reviewed, and tailored my workouts to achieve my specific goals. Her friendly, motivational, easy going personality had me working harder than I thought possible. My fitness increased noticeably, and all the hard work paid off – I was then invited to Netball World Cup the following year in Sydney.
Michelle has been my personal trainer for many years now (since around 2012/13 I think), which speaks for itself. I started PT as I had been diagnosed with osteoporosis and wanted to build up bone as well as muscle. Michelle has definitely helped me with that- my last bone scan showed that I am now no longer in the osteoporosis range. Happy to report I do not need to take any medication. Michelle makes training fun and pushes me to exactly the right extent. The training is really varied so I don’t get bored and includes TRX and boxing. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about diet and fitness in general and caring in a holistic way. We have a laugh, but she makes sure I work hard! I would highly recommend Michelle.
Michelle is passionate about nutrition and overall well-being. Her workshops are informative and full of practical tips. The emphasis is very much on small changes that are easy to incorporate into everyday life yet make a real difference to the way I feel. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to make more informed, conscious choices without forgoing the occasional treat (or two)
I really enjoyed Michelle’s hormone workshop; loads of great advice on certain food types and their roles in hormone balancing. This wasn’t the usual spiel about carbs, proteins and fats, but a far more in depth talk about being smarter about what foods to choose, relative portions and their health benefits” "I had already decided that I wanted to make changes to my diet, especially with regards to smart food choices for when I'm short on time, but also when I can get the opportunity to batch cook in advance. Michelle did a thorough assessment of my food diary and then gave me simple and practical steps for improvements. Michelle made easy to stick to suggestions that really worked for me. Suggestions for batch cooking, and moreover how to balance food groups with my active lifestyle. I would highly recommend giving her a call!
I have never been to such a clear and easy to understand nutritional workshop. Michelle’s approach was perfect for any audience but the level of her expertise and knowledge was obvious. An engaging and fun lunchtime activity where no question was too out there or difficult to answer, I think everyone left feeling really confident in themselves
I attended Michelle’s get party ready through nutrition workshop and found the information very helpful. It’s evident that Michelle really knows her stuff when it comes to nutrition as the slides and handouts were packed with useful facts and tips for keeping healthy and in shape over the holidays. I would recommend any one of her workshops if you want to get educated about nutrition
I reached out to Michelle and soon joined her 3 month Happy Hormones & Happy weight programme because I was looking for support with the fibroids, my fertility and my energy level, as I was exhausted very easily. What I really enjoyed about working with Michelle was that she made me understand the root cause of my problem. She helped me change my mindset about nutrition and having a healthy lifestyle. The shift/result that happened because of working with Michelle was that I could manage my energy levels better throughout the day and at the end of the programme I got pregnant.
