Michelle Golla started her own fitness journey following a torn ACL that ended her basketball career. As a former athlete, she found herself lacking the motivation to stay active after her injury. When she decided it was time to make a change, Michelle started taking daily walks around the block. Eventually, she was running up to 60 miles each week and had lost more than 50 pounds. One way that has kept her from getting seriously injured again is stretching dynamically before her workouts and static stretching after.
Her prior injury and experience inspired Michelle to become a personal trainer, running/athletic conditioning coach and weight management specialist. In addition, part of her training plans for all clients is stretching, which has prevented injuries for her clients and enhanced performance. With a unique understanding of the difficulties one may face prior to adopting an active lifestyle, she is exceptionally qualified to help her clients reach their fitness goals. Michelle's well-rounded background allows her to successfully guide you through each step of your fitness journey and incorporate stretching into every workout. She chose to work at Stretch Lab to educate people on that importance.
Her overall Vision: To provide the best training, support, advice, and encouragement in a positive manner; be sensitive to one’s needs; value one’s goals; provide an enjoyable, safe and memorable experience.
