Hello, my name is Brooke Michelle, creator of BODY x BROOKE and BxB SWEAT @ HOME. I am a virtual fitness class instructor, certified personal trainer, group class instructor and holistic nutrition and lifestyle health coach living in Staten Island, New York.
I am a blogger who loves to curate easy and healthy recipes, especially for those who suffer from food allergies, intolerance’s and gastric issues. I love making dairy free, gluten free and soy free goodies and many of my creations are Paleo and Whole30 Compliant.
My success and unique connection with my clients was born from my own personal journey towards health and true happiness. My resilience stems from a traumatic past in which I was a victim of sexual, verbal and physical abuse as well as bullying at a young age. Exercise and a healthy lifestyle has helped me overcome battles I have faced such as eating disorders, depression and anxiety.
I was a frequent member of group fitness classes (spinning was my first love) and realized I was passionate about teaching and leading these classes. After years of training and education, I became a certified Spinning indoor cycling and group class instructor. Not only did this help to empower me enough to leave a toxic marriage, it came with the intangible reward of inspiring and motivating others. Throughout this time, I expanded into personal training which is truly rewarding.
Since the pandemic kept me out of working my full-time job at gyms, I created BxB SWEAT @ HOME which is a virtual group fitness program with 6 class formats throughout the week. I host classes throughout the week (morning and evening) live on Zoom or provide recorded classes by email for those with busy schedules not able to make my classes. My class styles range in intensities from low impact to high intensity and is the perfect split through the week to tone and tighten your body, build lean muscle mass, burn fat, boost confidence and motivate movement of your body with good form and great music!
My enthusiasm for a healthy lifestyle (after years of not practicing self-love) lead me to become a Holistic Health Coach. I believe that finding a balance of the BODY, MIND and SOUL is what lead me to create BODY x BROOKE and I am passionate about motivating others to find the same. With my guidance, I help women and men to find their inner strength which will allow them to achieve any health and fitness goal.
