His custom approach, attention to detail, and motivational style make him a great choice for anyone interested in living a more healthy lifestyle. In addition to fitness, Michael is an expert in nutrition; helping me take the steps to build healthy habits for the long-term.

2017 Michael Moody Fitness Scholarship Winner


“I'm a senior in the athletic training program at the University of  Wisconsin-La Crosse. I chose this career path because I wish to meaningfully help others and make a positive impact in their lives. I initially became interested in the athletic training/healthcare fields when I experienced multiple sports injuries in high school. I quickly became fascinated with the rehabilitation process. I hope to further extend my knowledge and skillset in rehabilitation by pursuing this degree. My career goals: To enjoy my job, be proud of what I do, and have a little fun along the way. I hold a simple philosophy: “Try to do your best in all that you do.” My loving parents have lived and taught me this simple motto, and it has yet to let me down.”
