Michelle Steinke-Baumgard & Keith Baumgard
Michelle Steinke-Baumgard is an author for HarperCollins, speaker, fitness coach, mother and a re-married widow. After losing her husband Mitch in 2009, she turned to exercise as an outlet for grief and a way to handle stress. Michelle found it so powerful that she eventually quit her corporate VP job to become a fitness coach. Since then Michelle has been featured in Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, contributed to articles for Prevention Magazine, The Huffington Post, and countless other media outlets.
In addition to her virtual training business, Michelle recently launched her own nonprofit, Live the List focused on helping widows and widowers complete bucket list dreams to honor their late spouse while moving boldly into their future. Michelle’s overarching goal is to help people live a full, fit and intentional life beyond life’s hardest moments.
Keith Baumgard is the Co-Founder of My1FitLife, and Live the List Nonprofit. Fitness has been a life-long passion of his, starting from a young age. Keith’s degree is in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine allowing him to extensively learn and study the anatomy and physiology of the body, specifically the muscular system. Having a background in this allows him to continually develop unique and effective exercise programs. He started his career as a personal trainer right out of college and continue to work with clients still today. In 2004 he lost his best friend in a plane crash and realized how important exercise and fitness is in helping with the grieving process. His greatest reward is seeing others achieve their goals and live up to their full potential.Source: myretreatsunlimited.secure.retreat.guru
