ITN Student Success: Michelle Vodrazka
ITN STUDENT SUCCESS: MICHELLE VODRAZKA
Meet ITN graduate, Michelle Vodrazka, CTNC!
This mom of five, wife, personal trainer, and Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach took her dream of becoming a Health Coach and published author and made it her reality!
Michelle is a life-long learner and passionate about helping others succeed at finding their best selves through healthy eating, exercise, and simple recipes!
She loves to be in the kitchen crafting up macro-friendly recipes, writing her best-selling books, educating herself on all things fitness and nutrition, and spending time with her biggest blessings, her five kids!
Her dream of being a published author, Huffington Post blog contributor, and a sought-after motivational speaker seemed unrealistic until ITN helped her find the confidence to bring those dreams to life!
We are so honored to have Michelle as part of our ITN family and LOVE all that she is doing, and you will too!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN COACHING?
I’ve been an exercise coach and personal trainer since 2002. I officially became a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach (CTNC) in 2012 and have been loving it ever since!
WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?
My areas of expertise include macro-friendly and allergy-friendly recipe development, bodybuilding and sports nutrition, physique transformation, and weight management.
TELL US YOUR STORY?
The decision to enroll in ITN was life-changing for me!
I received so much more than I had anticipated from the program. The quality of information and knowledge I gained far surpassed my expectations!
Plus, the support I received from Cynthia and my ITN family, the relationships that I developed, and the personal growth that I experienced gave me the confidence to step forward into the life I was meant to live.
The environment is unlike any that I have ever experienced – there is so much support, encouragement, and collaboration!
Cynthia has the innate ability to make you feel valued and to make you believe that you matter. She inspires you to dream BIG and guides you on how to act BIG and put those dreams in motion!
Never in my life had I imagined that I would be capable of writing a cookbook – much less three! Or that my recipes would one day appear in newspapers or magazines.
I also never thought I would have the confidence to speak in front of hundreds of people, or that I could ever become a Huffington Post blogger. I was able to accomplish all of this within a few years of graduating from ITN!
These accomplishments seemed completely unrealistic to me just a few years ago. Now, I believe I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.
This program is hands-down the best investment I could have made in myself. I mean how do you put a price on gaining the expertise and confidence you need to finally pursue your dreams?
WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST SUCCESSES AS A HEALTH COACH?
My biggest dream was becoming a published author, and I finally accomplished that!
I have now written three cookbooks, Smart Snacking for Sports, Help Yourself to Seconds, and my most recent, which is being released on May 21st, The Bodybuilding Meal Prep Cookbook. (Get your copy here!)
Every time I face a fear of mine and step out of my comfort zone (like presenting on stage at ITN Live 2016) I feel stronger and more empowered. I think this is an essential feeling for a woman to have and to be able to role model it for others.
And of course, my greatest accomplishment is raising five great kids who make me a proud mama every day!
