Layla San MartinI cannot emphasize how much of a positive change happened in my life than when I first met Michelle. At the time I was underfed and over exercised unable to fathom why I couldn’t lose weight. After having my first consultation with Michelle she was able to advise me about my routines and what significant but small changes I could do to help my quest of reaching my goals! I attended a number of events that Michelle had organized, a hike through the park, a tutorial through whole foods and a 101 on organic local grown produce, all of which opened my eyes to a whole new world of health and fitness! I will be forever grateful to Michelle for opening my eyes and showing me a new healthy life style that is not only better for my family but also better for the environment!

Kelli BeckstromWorking with Michelle has been so good for my mind, body and soul. When we began, I was in a place where my inner dialogue was very negative. After 3 months, I am kinder to myself, and more forgiving and understanding of my habits.

I am much more aware of why I eat the way I do – what circumstances trigger negative indulgences and what I can to do to prevent them. I have the knowledge and power to take care of my body in a way that gives me focus and positive energy.

The biggest benefit to working with Michelle is that she listens so intensely and she remembers every detail of what you have said. Part therapist, part mentor, part sage, Michelle is a wonderful guide as you explore and uncover your inner beauty in a healthful, mindful way.

Mary Gunther"Through Michelle’s health coaching program, I have learned how different foods affect me. I now see how my food choices can change my mood, my energy level, my peace of mind and overall health. I understand why I crave certain foods, and have learned what I can do to overcome the cravings. I have discovered delicious whole grains and greens and have tried many easy, nutritious recipes. My children have come to enjoy the new, healthy foods I have introduced and have even requested them for dinner!"

Sunita MathewSince your Rawsome Summer Solstice Celebration this past June, I have been mindful with what I have been feeding my body, increased my physical activity, and I’m aware of the need to remain stress-free and/or find ways to cope with daily stress. I have been juicing frequently and got a smoothie blender (used your suggestions from your video and tried some Kale smoothies – yumm)! I’m seeing such a difference in my energy level and my mood!!! You have made me realize that I can enjoy sweets and I do indeed have good choices that I can make. So once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Jen McGownMichelle's style of coaching during the cleanse was informative, nurturing and supportive. The cleanse empowered me to reduce cravings substantially (I didn't even cheat and eat any sweets!). I was able to sleep straight through the night without any interruptions and upon morning, I felt rested. My body, mind and spirit were so connected, I could elect to do things that really were good choices for my well-being, like a daily workout in addition to yoga. I found myself wanting to move and exercise as my energy reserves were higher. Michelle's energy is contagiously inspiring and helped to keep me on the path to a healthier, happier me!

Eileen Seligman“I would definitely recommend Michelle Bailen as your healthy go-to-girl! Michelle has become known as our school’s health advisor with her great, easy tips for kids and adults. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and her positive approach empowers you to make the change in your life. As a wonderful speaker and confidant, Michelle’s instructive classes are interesting and give the necessary tools for the start of a new you! She unravels the mysteries behind so-called “lowfat” foods and educates you in an easy-to- understand fashion. Thanks Michelle for your guidance!”

Justine FontinellAs a full-time stay-at-home-mom, and a part-time health coach, I sometimes feel like I'm so busy supporting other people that I forget to take care of myself! Michelle's class helped remind me that my own physical and emotional health should be priorities, too. Just as I support my son or my clients to challenge themselves to grow, Michelle supported my growth.

Sherry Gowarty"Michelle has transformed my outlook regarding my approach to a healthy lifestyle. Specifically, my understanding of how I was defeating myself nutritionally and emotionally by choosing fat free foods, which created a cycle of highs/lows due to the high sugar and low nutritional levels. Michelle has broadened my knowledge of incorporating whole and satisfying food and eliminating cravings and deprivation. I am so grateful to have had her guidance on my journey."

Thank you so much for your lively counseling on nutrition! The staff people who attended were very positive about your presentation and were enthused by your suggestions.

Although I have worked with you before, my staff was new to you and they said that changing their lifestyles sometimes seems overwhelming. The way you stressed making small measurable changes, made the goal appear a lot more attainable. Of course, reading food labels is always confusing. Phrasing the one statement the way your did, “If you can’t read it or don’t know what it is, don’t buy it.” will make the whole experience easy.


Thank you for your time, your inspiration, your knowledge and your gift of caring about people.

I found Michelle's "Spring into Better Health Program" extremely helpful in learning a whole new healthy way to prepare and enjoy nutritious food. She also addressed weight management thru the emotions, self-esteem, movement, gluten and sugar sensitivity. This is the best food class I ever taken & would highly recommend it to everyone.
