Anne Hitchcock, Professional Dancer

Before I met Michelle I wasn’t really a gym person and I never took group fitness classes. I spent most of my spare time in dance studios rehearsing choreography and my gym experience was minimal and always solo. One day I ran into Michelle at our local gym and she said “Anne, you need to work on your arms”. Well, that’s when I started attending Michelle’s Body Blast classes. It was a first and totally changed my idea of fitness and personal strength.

I found I loved lifting weights, doing squats and above all, the enthusiasm and direction of Michelle’s technique. Michelle utilizes an overall workout experience which is precise and balanced from top to bottom. Michelle is also an excellent personal trainer; highly motivational, individualized and thorough with an expectation that you can succeed.

As a current client of Michelle Aluqdah, I am writing to recommend her as both a group fitness instructor as well as a personal trainer. I have been working with her one on one since 2016. She is the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. Whether you are trying to build muscle, slim down, or meet a specific goal she has the background and commitment to help you succeed.

I have left her group classes feeling energized due to her enthusiasm and great musical choices. And her personal training sessions have kept me in shape as a busy executive and parent. Since the pandemic began she has pivoted to online classes which have been a life saver. I highly recommend Michelle for her dedication to her clients.

I’ve been working out with Michelle for about 10 years. During that time, I have dealt with various forms of chronic back pain, as well as personal setbacks; work-related, relationship-related, I have lost 20 pounds and gained 30… you name it. Through all of the ups and downs I faced, Michelle has been a constant source of encouragement and stability. She has always altered our workouts to fit my physical capabilities and has always pushed me to go beyond what I thought I could do. I look forward to the next 10 years!

Michelle is a fabulous trainer and I can’t say enough good things about her! I started working with her more than 6 years ago after having gone through major back surgery. Michelle has always been sensitive to my particular physical challenges, and at the same time has helped me to work on building strength, flexibility, endurance, greater balance, and better posture. Every workout is a little different and we have great conversations in between reps. I’m so grateful for her care and attention to keeping me fit and active.
