I’ve helped hundreds of clients and fitness professionals maximize their training results based on principles and now it’s your turn.
There are 3 things that frustrate me about education for personal trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, and physical therapists:
1. The academic system fails to provide the skills needed to navigate the vast world of information. We try to do the right thing by going to continuing education events and course to help support our growth, but we end up failing at making information useful.
2. We gain information, not a mentor. You will most likely never have a conversation with a presenter at a weekend seminar and will never see them again following the seminar. You get lost in taking in all the rapid fire information and then fail at implementing.
3. The courses are mostly theoretical and lack application within context. You receive a manual, that you will most likely never open again, and are sent on your way. You enjoy the course, but a few months later it’s like you never went. Your return on investment is low.
Meanwhile the academic system has us rolling in student loan debt and weekend seminars with travel can easily cost over $1,000.
We invest in information. BUT, what if that could change?
Instead of more information, what about skills to make information useful to us, our clients, and our business?
Instead of listening to a presenter for 16 hours and never being able to have a 1:1 conversation, what about a small group of our peers for support and a accessible instructor to ask personalize questions?
Discover an experience that will take a step back from MORE information and teach you the skills to navigate and implement information.
The MBT Strategy group classroom includes weekly content designed to provide YOU with the skills to identify, formulate, and implement YOUR own training methods.
We will work together to build principles, have weekly calls to problem solve, and conversations to provide context. You will turn your knowledge into a full principle-based training system.
At the end of the experience you will have confidence in your ability to get your clients results with the knowledge that you already have.
You will gain friends and a mentor that will continue beyond the 8 week course.

Here’s what people say about the Group Classroom
Michelle is a fantastic professional to learn with. She offers a wealth of experience and knowledge delivered in a thoughtful and friendly fashion. It was helpful to see her model and systems and learn about process behind how she developed them. Michelle does an excellent job connecting participants with resources and examples that support developing your own model and systems.
If you're a fitness professional trying to identify your own space and how to set yourself apart from others, this mentorship is a no-brainer. I think Michelle does a great job explaining how to identify your own training principles and have programs you create fall in line with your beliefs. Over the twelve week course you'll learn to apply the knowledge you already have and create a training model to influence your client communication, business strategy, exercise selection and programming templates. The twice weekly live calls in addition to the hours of pre-recorded content really provide real time support for any questions you may have to ensure success.

I chose to join the MBT Strategy Group to create more structure and clarity on my coaching style and solidify my methods in writing. I wanted to work smarter not harder.
My biggest struggle when I joined the classroom was organization. Throughout the course with the assignments, I began seeing that I actually did have a process I was following I just didn't realize it until I wrote down all the processes and principles that I base my decisions on. That has given me more confidence and security in what I do.
My biggest struggles now are long term programming and I am currently using the template and the exercise database to develop a more timely and efficient programming strategy.
I love the questions you posed to me for clarity on concepts etc, they were thought provoking and required me to dive deeper into my beliefs about what I do. When you asked me to think of HOW when refining my principles, or defining skills and abilities. Diving deeper felt unnecessary, I thought my words were self explanatory but the more I defined something the more I either solidified why I used it or realized it wasn't applicable.
I recommend working with Michelle for anyone who
- Struggles with organizing their thoughts or ideas
- Wants to reflect and perfect their professional strategy
- Wants to optimize their time by having a plan, process, and principles in place
The group classroom provides a great support system for accountability and the range of professional experience and perspective encourages thought provoking discussions and productive feedback in a judgment free space.

I have taken many courses and continued my education, but what I realized from being in this course, was that no one is teaching you how to use that accumulated knowledge.
I didn’t realize how much I needed this course to take my training and business to the next level. This course has allowed me to create a more streamlined message to my potential clients of who I am and what I can do for them.
By far the best money and time I’ve ever invested in continuing education.
Even though I had a model and principles in place, it allowed me to identify gaps in my model and fill them.
Michelle is an amazing teacher, she has the ability to make difficult concepts easy to understand and ask the right questions at the right time”.
-RYAN HEICKERT, MS., ATC, PES,
Co-Owner of Function and Strength
I am in my first couple of years in the industry, and was feeling so overwhelmed with the never ending open platform of information. I had no idea where to start, what to trust, how to get focused. Then I found Michelle & the MBT Strategy group.It has brought helped me bring back some focus and find a starting point. Throughout the 12 weeks I have been introduced to amazing people in my classroom & really enjoyed the guest speakers throughout. Michelle has such a vast knowledge of the industry, is top class at what she does and the best part is she is so honest, open & willing to share her experience with others. I struggled with defining my principles & understanding creating my own model but Michelle has been incredible patience, encouraging & helpful. My biggest takeaway has been - "That I know enough" I was so scared that I'm not good enough, I don't know enough & I don't know where to start. But I have enough for where I am at and Michelle & the others in my group have shown me the pathway to grow & learn to excel in my career. This is only the beginning, now instead of being scared I am excited.
This course has by far been the most influential course I’ve ever taken. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have incredible professors in undergrad and grad school. Unfortunately, standard academic schooling doesn’t make a place in the curriculum to teach us students how to integrate the information we learn into our own SYSTEM/MODEL. It doesn’t teach us how to find and use OUR OWN VOICES. The Strategy Course Group Classroom bridges this gap and does it WELL in an organized yet fluid fashion. I can not recommend this course highly enough to ALL physical therapists and fitness professionals.

What if I am already in a mentorship group?
I grew up in central Massachusetts where my interest for athletics and playing sports began. I played soccer, basketball, and ran track at the collegiate level while studying Nutrition. After reflecting on my life passion for athletics and sports performance training, I decided to pursue a higher education degree in strength and conditioning (M.S.) and exercise physiology (PhD) at Springfield College (MA).
I have several years of professional experience as a strength and conditioning coach at a Division 1 institution working with a nationally ranked top 5 Women’s Ice Hockey team, a nationally ranked top 10 Men’s Ice Hockey team, and other teams including Field Hockey, Women’s Soccer, and Men’s Basketball. I then created my own company, Michelle Boland Training, in order to support others in achieving their performance and fitness goals to the best of my abilities.
