Certified T-Tapp Trainer
Hi, my name is Michelle Barbuto. I am a 44 year old single mother of 6 wonderful children. I am Western PA’s Certified Senior T-Tapp Trainer, Mommy Fitness Trainer, Trainer Mentor and a LPN – returning to college for my RN.
My journey with T-Tapp began in June of 2001 when I was pregnant with my 6th child and suffering incredible back pain. Someone on another forum suggested that I try T-Tapp to reduce my back pain, so I did, and to my surprise my back pain disappeared! Even though it was the last trimester of my pregnancy, under the guidance of a T-Tapp trainer, I was pleasantly surprised to also lose inches in my hips and thighs. I was able to return to my pre-pregnancy size very quickly after having my son. But like so many before me, life seemed to get in the way and I quit exercising.
In September of 2003 I was frustrated with how I felt and looked and decided to put *me* first. With help and encouragement from many wonderful women on the T-Tapp forum I took it one day at a time and made exercise a permanent part of my life. I was able to go from a 12/14 to an 8/10 very quickly just by doing T-Tapp alone. I became more aware of my poor health habits and began eating better. I used all of Teresa's resources on hand to understand body acidity/alkalinity and hormonal imbalance. Teresa and her office staff were available to answer all of the questions that I had.
I now feel stronger and have more energy then I have had since high school. I am able to play with my children and keep up with all of them. Before I started T-Tapp, my energy level was so low. So I thank Teresa for giving me the tools necessary to get my passion for life back.
As a Senior T-Tapp Trainer I am committed to encouraging, motivating, and training others to be their best by becoming as strong and healthy as they can be. The body is an amazing machine and with the T-Tapp wellness workout you can help your body be the best it can be. After all you ARE worth it, so Commit to be Fit!
