My name is Michele Bond, and I have my fully insured training practice in West Los Angeles. I am a certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and a certified Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I have been training in the Los Angeles area for 9 years. I began my career at a small studio in Santa Monica where I started and refined my cardio coaching techniques. This led to other opportunities at a large upscale Santa Monica club where I was a lead trainer and the co-founder of a personal trainer mentoring program. It was also then that I started my studies in functional anatomy and continued my practice with weight training, cardio coaching, and program adherence strategies. After exhausting the "corporate" experience, I started my own training business and couldn't be happier. I recently added nutritional counseling services, as nourishing the body correctly plays a critical role in achieving any type of health or fitness goal. I also incorporate mat Pilates and yoga basics to enhance the mind-body connection. On a personal note, I have completed 3 marathons and 2 half century bike rides. I am a mother of one boy.
I am a highly organized, thorough, and very passionate trainer. I continue my education by attending classes, seminars and research. One of my newer clients told me that she chose me because she could tell that I train "with my heart”. I spend a lot of time up front with each client to develop a health and fitness game plan to be worked into their life. I don't believe everyone should be a size 4 and that you can't ever have a cookie again. I just believe that people should have knowledge about some of the body's basic principals that it functions on before starting an exercise and nutrition plan.
