My acupuncturist had been treating me for an injured knee, but because I was overweight, he gave me treatments to improve my metabolism while also advising me on diet and exercise. After a few weeks, he said, “I think you are ready for Mikki.” What an understatement! I have had trainers in the past, but nothing prepared me for what I experienced these past six months working with Mikki.

I was a slow starter at first because it was so hard for me to change my eating habits and adopt the Paleo Diet. But as I began to lose weight, my momentum picked up. I can see the changes in my body and I’m only one third of the way to reaching my goal.

I used to feel very anxious before my workouts with Mikki because I thought I wouldn’t be able to accomplish what she asked of me. But as my strength, technique and endurance improved, I began to look forward to each new challenge. And yes, I even look forward to climbing those stadium steps. Mikki’s coaching is all about commitment and discipline and that has translated to many other areas of my life. It is one of the best investments I have ever made!
