About Michelle and REACHABLE Fitness™
Hi! I'm Michelle Rogers, founder of REACHABLE Fitness™. I am a Certified Personal Trainer (National Council for Certified Personal Trainers), a Certified Group Fitness Instructor (American Council on Exercise) and a Certified Senior Fitness Specialist (National Academy of Sports Medicine). I teach Silver Sneakers and Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program classes locally, and work with personal training clients. I live in central North Carolina, and am proud to be over 50.
It wasn't always like that. Up until my early 40s, I struggled with my weight and my health. I had weight fluctuations of almost 100 pounds. But then I took control and started exercising and eating better, and went on to lose all the extra weight. Exercise and healthy eating made such a profound difference in every area of my life, that I was inspired to then become a fitness professional. My transformation not only changed me physically, it gave me a new purpose in life: To help others.
With my real-life experience and my professional health and fitness education, I’ve learned so much on this journey. Now it’s my life’s mission to help others succeed.
Instead of feeling tired and achy most of the time like I used to, today I enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle. I can be there for my family, friends and community when they need me. I can fully participate in life. It’s awesome…more than words can say. I want that for you, too.
I used to think that the most important thing was what the scale said, or what my dress size was. But now that I achieved those goals, I can tell you that the even better part of it is how wonderful you FEEL when you’re healthy and fit. When you feel great, when you have your health, you really can do anything!
And that’s why I do the work I do. That’s life-changing stuff. I want to pass it on.
When I have a client or class participant tell me, with excitement, things like:
“Thank you!! I can do things now I couldn’t do before!”
“I’m sleeping better now, and wake up with less pain!”
“I’m seeing a difference! Look how loose my pants are…these used to be tight! I need to go shopping!”
“I haven’t weighed this less in 25 years!”
“My cholesterol has dropped 30 points since my last exam!”
“Wow, I feel so much better now than when I started!”
…it melts my heart. I love helping them. I want to help YOU. It’s what drives me. It’s what gets me out of bed every morning.
I’m proof positive that even if you’ve always struggled, it’s not too late to turn over a new leaf. You’re never too old to become your best you, and live your best life now.
Why I created REACHABLE Fitness™:
As a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, I lead large groups of older adults at my classes at the gym. As a Certified Personal Trainer, I've worked with clients age 50+ individually in my private studio and online.
Both of those things are wonderful, but these options are limited to those who have the budget and the time to be able to work with me in person or to join a gym. Personal training is a significant investment in money, time, and travel that is a barrier to many people. These limitations especially affect older adults, caregivers or those with a disability or chronic health condition. Quite honestly, it breaks my heart when someone wants to work with me and clearly could benefit from it, but they can't because of finances, family obligations or other reasons beyond their control.
I got into this line of work to help people. I don't ever again want someone turned away who could benefit. The healing power of fitness and a healthy lifestyle are fundamental, and I want this to be accessible to anyone who needs it.
There has to be a better way, I thought. And now, finally, there is!
That's why I started REACHABLE Fitness™. To be able to help anyone, anywhere, get moving, get healthier and feel better. To make fitness and better health reachable -- for all.
By using this wonderful online technology, distance, transportation, time and money are no longer obstacles for those who would like to take my gentle fitness classes. It's affordable, convenient, and accessible anytime and anywhere.
So what are you waiting for?? Let's get started right now! :)
Proud to be certified by the best in the industry
