Good staff!

Michelle Melachrinos
I'm so excited.

I have been in a place of personal reset and since I took your training with holistic nutritionist and continue to certify it's been hard to market myself. But I learned to apply what you taught me and coupled with some other things I have learned I know the next move is the personal trainer certification. So thank you for the chance to be able to begin to mentor people. I'm trying to put my own personal testimony together called my personal Reset I had this started seven months before I ever checked into this and so imagine the encouragement I received when the beginning of the class they talked about reset. Thank you for your continued guidance have a blessed day.

Dual certification is an exciting endeavor, Michelle! Congratulations on your Holistic Nutritionist Certification and best of luck in your Personal Trainer Certification program! We're here if you need anything as you move through your new course.
