The Launching of Lori Michiel Fitness

“Everyone, even those with infirmities, can participate on some level. The music and the exercise can uplift our mood and our emotions, freeing our thoughts for new concepts.”

With the creation of Lori Michiel Fitness in 2006, I began a new chapter in my life: business owner! I am certified as a personal fitness trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I’ve earned numerous specialty certifications such as Senior Fitness Specialist and Arthritis Foundation Fitness Instructor.

 “If exercise came in a prescription form, it would be the most sought-after pill on the market.”

I can’t recall a time when I haven’t been full of energy and enthusiasm. I like to think that my personality, high energy and inspiring nature rubs off on others. With the help my team, we have helped hundreds of clients regain strength and independence by being honest, friendly, encouraging and sensitive to our clients’ needs.

 “I like to explore the most current, practical and safe ways for my clients to move. When research is released and I feel confident with the results, I apply it to my practices.”

I’m always on the lookout for enjoyable ways to incorporate the latest in brain science with exercise. The evidence is there – combining brain and physical exercise at the same time is more effective than simply doing brain games on a computer. Over and over my clients report that as they improve in cognitive awareness, they feel more present and in tune. It’s so rewarding when a client says to me, “I’m remembering names more easily now.”
