I originally made contact with Michelle seeking assistance with my diet. I have always followed a healthy lifestyle by not smoking, I don’t drink alcohol and am not a huge fan of junk food. I was bored with my current menu, I needed more healthy alternatives and living a busy lifestyle, I was after choices that were also quick to prepare. Well, I definately found what I was after and I was so impressed with the diet plan Michelle provided me with that I requested she prepare my comp prep diet plan for October 2011. During the previous year of my comp prep, I had suffered with nausea for several weeks running which compromised my prep. The nausea affected my resistance training, cardio, sleep & work. My energy levels were extremely low at times & I even had thoughts of not putting my body through the process again after that year of competing. The diet plan Michelle provided me with was full of detail & variety, packed with nutritional requirements & some of the meals were even too good to be thought of as comp prep meals. Ingredient alternatives were also possible if necessary.
I have always weight trained with my husband & continued to do so, however, to compliment my prep I asked Michelle if she would assist me with a cardio plan. I won’t say I enjoyed it because it was a lot more intense that I had previously done, however, combined with my resistance training, new eating plan & cardio plan, the result was me becoming the leanest and hardest I have ever been.
Being based in Victoria, I must admit I did have initial concerns about Michelle not physically viewing my changing body as the important weeks approached. I need not have though. Every fortnight which eventually changed to weekly, I emailed through my progress photos, measurements, etc and was always impressed with how quickly Michelle provided me with feedback & any diet/cardio changes that she thought were required.
I eventually met Michelle in person at the WFF Saltwater Classic National Titles in Darwin. The evening before the comp, she assisted me by tweaking my posing technique & provided me with the finishing touches to my prep. Michelle is extremely professional & her wealth of knowledge is enviable. I have always found Michelle to be an extremely caring, genuine person who practices what she preaches. Thank you Michelle, I am over the moon with the condition I achieved this year.
