Working with Michelle is the best! She’s like my therapist at the same time as my coach. I loved her meal plans and workouts and always looked forward to changing things up to see what else she could create! Her gym workouts are easy to follow and fun to do. The meal plans are extremely tasty and I look forward to making some of those dishes for a long time! Michelle is so easy to talk to and she has so much passion for what she does. It really comes across in her coaching. She is incredibly supportive and encouraging and you want to reach your goals for her as much as for yourself! I highly recommend coaching with Michelle - it was exactly what I needed to lose the rest of the baby weight and start feeling amazing and strong and confident again. Thanks Michelle!!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I have LOVED working with Michelle. She is knowledgeable, realistic and gives you all the encouragement you could ever wish for. At times it may be difficult to remember why you are doing this but Michelle is right there to remind you that this is a process and if you trust her and the process you will love the results. I would strongly recommend Michelle to anyone interested in starting or continuing a new healthy lifestyle. She will not only be able to guide you in the gym, but more importantly in the kitchen!
I have been where you are... You’re a mom or a woman with a full time career.... Life is so busy. And everyone else comes before you. Maybe a long time ago, when you had more “free time”, you made yourself a priority... But these days it just feels like everything and everyone is swallowing you whole. It was at this point in my life that I realized that I had to start doing things differently. Enter Michelle Vodrazka.

Michelle is on my list of top 10 most inspiring women I have the pleasure of knowing. Aside from her multiple achievements professionally speaking and her ability to raise healthy, happy children, what I admire most about her is her willingness (and frankly courage) to be authentic with herself and those around her. Michelle is absolutely the right choice for your health coach.
This program has influenced my life in many ways as it isn't your regular weight loss through "starving yourself" as many others out there. It is more on focusing and learning about healthy eating and becoming strong. I now know that I don't have to stop eating the things I LOVE but I can make a healthier version myself, or substitute for a better store bought choice.
This program has changed y family's eating habits! There are no longer boxes of Bear Paws in my cupboards. I making my own granola bars and healthier versions of cupcakes (made with quinoa and oats).mI have also gotten into a habit of prepping veggies and greens for the week, which makes it so much easier.
I loved every single aspect of this program. I mean, having the meal plan done for you, plus the choices of different kinds of foods you can pick from, plus the workouts spelled out, made following this program so easy! And the information Michelle gives about whatever questions that come up are just incredible!
Through this program, I learned that I can feed myself and my family healthier foods, and that organic foods are not that much more expensive after all when you know how to shop. I also learned that by making it a life long habit and not a quick diet, I don't have to "suffer through it". Working with you has truly been an eye opener. I am grateful I stumbled upon you, because holy cow, there were so many things I didn't know!
I feel super confident now that I can make this changes and brag about how much my kids like my healthy meals. Plus, your book is a great addition to our kitchen and we go to it many times a week for ideas and recipes. I am such a big fan of your work. Thank you Michelle!
Michelle has been my nutritionist for a while and is second to none. Eager and motivated and VERY knowledgable. Hiring her and following her recommendations eased my anxiety, up and down weight issues, migraines, stomach inflammation, insomnia, incessant yo yo dieting, and stress levels. My recent blood work is SO much better after following her recommendations not to mention my mental and physical heath. What an amazing woman! She really sees the individual as a whole and looks beyond the symptoms to get to the actual root of the problem!!
I am so glad I hired her to assist in my health! Her program surprised me as traditional "diets" and "food plans" can be restrictive, helpful short term and hard to stick with. Michelle's was none of this and she varied the food plan and customized it for my tastes and body. The plan was simple to follow and the recipes were easy and quick to make. It was also a pleasant surprise that the ingredients were not hard to find and were not overly expensive at all. In fact my grocery bill decreased and yet I was eating healthier. There were even desserts including Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding!
Michelle will start with a thorough intake of your health, body weight, measurements and more. She is very passionate about learning about her clients, each as a whole. She notes the symptoms of issues but goes beyond just trying to heal those; she looks to the root of the problem. Michelle will answer any concerns or questions you may have regarding your plan and regime through very extensive research and through the knowledge she has gleaned from her years of study and devotion to this industry. She wants to make sure each of her clients receives the most detailed and helpful answers she can provide.
In terms of the food plan, how about noshing on Vegan Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal? Or about Eggless Chocolate Protein Cake? Who smiles to Mashed Avocado and Egg on Gluten Free Toast? It does not get much better than this and these are some items you can enjoy in choosing Michelle as your nutritionist. Calibrated and measured in just the right amount for your body and its daily caloric and nutritional needs, Michelle takes the time to evaluate what your body needs but also what your taste buds want. Add the exercise program she also customizes for your specific body type and health, and this is a winning combination for success.
My results after three months were undeniable. Not only physically, but mentally also. I can get out of bed with more of a spring in my step, I am not as tired in the afternoon, and I sleep better. My muscles are toned and I discovered and see muscles I never even knew were possible! If you are one of those people who is logging endless hours of cardio and not seeing results, that can change. Michelle knows how to work weights including the right exercises, repetitions, and sets to meet your needs so you can achieve your goals.
Michelle is that needle in the haystack you want to get on board with before she becomes too famous. Soon us normal everyday people will only dream of having her work with us!!
This program has had a significant impact on my life! For years, I have been struggling with identifying the proper nutrition and exercise program to transform my body. By sharing your specific goals and concerns, Michelle develops nutrition and exercise plans tailored to your needs. My kitchen has since been transformed, not with low calorie foods but rather with nutritious food and recipes. Similarly, my exercise program is now shorter but more efficient! Results don't happen overnight but I am impressed with all the progress I made thus far with the amazing knowledge and support Michelle offers!
Since starting the program my eating habits have drastically changed! Michelle doesn't put the focus on calories, instead she offers nutritious meal and snack recipes that will help you feel satisfied and will offer your body what it needs to build muscles and burn fat! What Michelle offers is not a diet but rather a new and improved lifestyle! I use to purchase refined sweets and salty snacks at the grocery store all the time thinking I could eat them in moderation but now I don't even consider it anymore!
If I crave sweets I follow her banana muffin recipe. Craving salty? I make her roasted chickpeas! If portions worry you, Michelle's program offers guidance on how to be in-tune with your hunger as well as approximate portions you can follow based on your plate! If you are ready for a healthy change, this is a quick and reliable program that will transform your entire kitchen, not to say your entire life!
It's difficult to identity only one element about the program that I like! If I really have to choose, what I like most about the program is the result! Have I reached my ideal goal 2 months in? Not quite, but I am well on my way and it is thanks to this program! Michelle is incredible! You may struggle while trying to adapt to this new lifestyle, I know I have, but don't give up. Her advice and knowledge is worth trusting! I have seen a lot of changes on how I look and feel and am excited to see how much I will change in the coming months with all the new knowledge I gained here!
The most important lessons I learned through this program are:
- You don't have to restrict or eat low fat to be fit and thin!
- Moderate exercise is enough to build and maintain a fit figure!
These are just general concepts I retained! The program provides tons of recipes, exercise routines, health facts and articles, etc. In other words, all the necessary tools to achieve your goals and one on one sessions with Michelle to tailor everything to you!
Yes I would recommend this program and I have! My family, friends and colleagues hear me talking about my experience all the time! Many have purchased Michelle's cookbook since her recipes are healthy and incredibly irresistible. Yes, this program is lead by Michelle but it becomes YOUR program. She customizes everything to your needs and goals and wants you to succeed! It is the best investment I have made in a long time, a gift to myself and I am so thrilled I met her! Thank you so much Michelle!
You have somehow taught me to better understand when I'm hungry and when I'm not. I don't find myself thinking about food all the time. I'm sure it's because of your recipes and the good things you have taught me to eat vs the bad things. And it's so EASY!! I don't feel deprived at all. I've had so many opportunities for cake etc in front of me, and I don't struggle (usually). I really can't thank you enough! The most notable differences I have observed is how I've hugely decreased my addiction to coffee and sugar, so I'm not getting the crashes. I really I feel so much better. After 13 yrs of dieting, I can say that you are the best nutritionist that I have ever experienced. You really know your stuff 🙂
I found an old picture of the half marathon that you trained me for. It made me think that I really should thank you again for all of your kind words and encouragement. I am sure that you have worked with so many people that you don't always realize what you help people to do. Long story short, that was a shitty time in my life and training for that race was what gave me strength in the other aspects of my life (had to make some hard decisions, but felt that I could do it because I had just run 21k!!) I love following your posts and really respect the work that you have been doing. Thank you!
I started working with Michelle shortly after I had returned to work from my mat leave. My goal was to get to a healthy weight before I turned forty (which was right around the corner) so that I could be an active mother and a good role model for my daughter. I had dieted before, but I always yo-yoed and I never managed to stick to a healthy weight for long. I wanted lasting results and I wanted to lose weight the right way this time. I have to say that I found it challenging at first because Michelle's plan really challenged the way I ate and the way I saw food. Even though I probably only followed Michelle's plan 70% of the time, I still saw amazing results because I was provided with a lot of options and a lot of food (I never once felt hungry).
Michelle was excellent throughout the entire process. She was very supportive even if I had a bad day she would just encourage me to do better and provided me with tips to avoid falling into the same pitfalls the next time. She was also very understanding and amended the plan to fit my needs and my lifestyle in order to help me succeed. I was amazed at how she was always available to answer my questions (even though she's a very busy lady!).
Over the course of 3-4 months, I was able to lose 40 pounds. I still have another 15 pounds to lose but I feel so much better about myself because I got to go buy a whole new wardrobe! The plan really changed the way that I live. I now make wiser choices when eating out, making meals and snacks, doing groceries and taking the stairs. Working with Michelle is the best decision I ever made for myself and my family and I highly recommend her to anyone in losing weight, feeling great or just developing healthier eating habits.
I worked with Michelle to prepare for my first fitness competition and my experience could not have been better. In 12 weeks, I had dropped 23 pounds by following her workout and meal plans in preparation for a fitness competition. The results I was seeing were very rewarding and I was reaping the benefits of not only my physical body changes but mentally as well. My confidence and self-esteem had increased as I was proud to see that I committed to my goal and I was getting closer to my competition.
Michelle was diligent and timely when monitoring my measurements and progression. Whenever I had a question, she answered me almost immediately. She was always motivating and positive and I can not thank her enough for all her coaching and work. I highly recommend that if you are looking for weight loss, healthier eating, work out plans or training for a competition, she is the one to work with. Michelle has a tremendous amount of knowledge and passion in this area and if you follow her recommendations, you will surely get the results you are looking for. Thanks again Michelle and I look forward to working with you again over the next few months.
I just wanted to let you know that I had got the results of my blood work from my doctor and my numbers were great (as compared to before starting your program). My doctor was thrilled with how low my cholesterol was – she said she could tell I have made major changes to my lifestyle. Also my weight has been stable at 144 (down 11 pounds from last July). So I just wanted to say a big thank you to you. Your advice, coaching, meal, and exercise plan have changed my life for the better. Thanks for everything!
Competing in a physique competition was a bucket list goal of mine. Something I never thought that I could do, something that scared me, and something that I didn't know anything about. I found Michelle through a friend and was intrigued by her sane, clean, and holistic approach to competition preparation without dehydration, diuretics, or any fat burners. Michelle is the perfect coach for entering the fitness competition world in a healthy way and doing it right.
I absolutely adored the customized and ever-evolving meal plans and fantastic physique-sculpting work outs. Michelle is all about efficiency. I only worked out four times per week to build muscle and recover, and only put in on average 1 hour of cardio each week! She is the ultimate economizer. I loved our weekly check ins, the tasty and easy recipes, the creative and intense work outs, and the posing classes. I highly recommend Michelle to any person who wants to change their physical life in a clean, healthy, and natural way. Thank you Michelle for showing what I was capable of it. I am still beaming!
When I first started working with Michelle, I thought I had knowledge in the fitness and health department but I was dead wrong. I learned so much with Michelle. She’s a patient, kind, motivated, passionate and supportive coach. She adjusted my meal and workout plans according to my tastes and needs. While working with Michelle, I also got pregnant (I been trying for more than 9 years) and it happened naturally. Don’t know if it happened because I changed my eating habits and lifestyle but I thank Michelle for a lot of the changes that happened in my life recently. Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been an easy road, but when you have motivation, willpower and a supportive environment (life partner, family, friends and an amazing coach) to achieve your goals, anything is possible. Big thanks to Michelle and looking forward to working with you again soon!
