Michele Canon has built a life around fitness, but she believes that looking good is tied to your mental state. She tries to find inspiration in her day-to-day activities, whether it be connecting with an amazing mom, running a great race, finding a beautiful garment, or sharing a moment with her son. Her mantra is: “Keep moving, learning, and living in the moment.”
Home: San Marino, Ca
Children: 6 yr old boy
Occupation: Michele is owner of Team Fit, which provides personal training sessions and outdoor workouts. As a mom, she understands the challenges women face trying to balance the needs of their children and making time for themselves. Therefore she makes the classes conducive to school run times and encourages moms with little ones to bring them along for class. She believes that getting and staying fit after having a baby is key to maintaining the energy levels required for caring for children, as well as reducing stress.
How does she look so damn good?
Having her own fitness company means that Michele incorporates wellness and healthy living in all aspects of her life. She does CATZ (Competitive Athletic Training Zone) twice per week along with running, biking and swimming.
Although Michele eats 6 meals a day, she ensures it is filled with lean proteins, whole grains, organic spinach and organic berries. She does occassionally indulge in wine and a weekly frozen yoghurt with her son.

“My style is laid back with a touch of glamour. I generally stay away from anything too frilly or fussy. I prefer sleek, clean lines and then add a bit of luxe like a great pair of heels or handbag. Adding some of my own personal touches like an edgy cuff or interesting necklace usually completes my ensembles. When I mix it up, I love wearing ethnic or bohemian influenced styles with intricate embroidery, fringe or long flowy maxi dresses (Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, Halston Heritage, Haute Hippie, Beyond Vintage, Tibi).
Because of my profession, I admit I am a Lululemon devotee. I do A LOT of my shopping there. However, the local Pasadena boutiques like Therapy, EG Page and Elisa B. carry many of the brands that I love. I am a consummate online shopper. My favorite sites are Net a Porter, Intermix and Shop Bop. I also love the OutNet and Gilt for great bargains. Barneys on the west side for shoes.” – Michele Canon
