Hello, my name is Brooke Michelle, creator of BODY x BROOKE. I am a 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.
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.
