Meet Michelle!


I never thought anything would rate higher in my life than saying I am a marathon runner and an Ironman Triathlete until now. Before Relentless Athletic Training, I was an endurance junkie. I was “content” with my body, and I thought I could only be more fit if I was training for another marathon or an Ironman. My diet consisted of whole grains, low fat dairy, lots of fruits and veggies and some lean protein. I was active and healthy but didn’t feel great and thought this was as good as it was going to get.

I was invited by an existing client to one of the free workouts. I loved it instantly. The workout was challenging, fun, different and there was this energy that is hard to explain, but it was contagious and I wanted to be part of it.

I thought I was in pretty good shape before, but I was shocked by the results! I lost 15lbs and 4% body fat within 6 months.

Relentless Athletic Training has changed how I perceive fitness. I used to be obsessed with getting in the hours/miles. I am faster, more fit and overall spend less time working out. Physically, emotionally and mentally I feel stronger and more confident that I ever have. After a class I always have a smile on my face as I am driving home. I feel alive, youthful, proud, eager for whatever comes next. I love the relentless community, my class inspires me – I look forward to seeing them even at 6:30 in the morning! I am also lucky to have one of the best coaches,Megan Parsons, who I also now call, friend. She has become such a great friend and inspiration.

Challenges have come my way, some by choice others not by choice, but either way facing them I feel more resilient than ever before. I have a new and improved zest for life and it shows in all that I do. My favorite part about Relentless Athletic Training is there is always something new to learn - a new move, a new technique, new facts about nutrition, new running form, etc.
