Hi! My name is Shelby Mickley. I am a wife, and a mom to two little girls. I have been training for about 5 years now, with weight training being what I’ve focused on most. I became a Certified Personal Trainer in December of 2018, and have loved every minute of it. I am most passionate about helping people - seeing someone hit goals in the gym, and especially seeing people achieve what they thought was impossible. If you don’t believe in yourself, i assure you that i DO believe in you (and will help you believe too). Whether you’re a mom, a beginner, or solo and extremely experienced, i want to help push you to reach your goals. Fitness is such a huge part of my life and i want to share my passion for it with as many people as possible
