Courtney Mighell | Fitness Trainer
Courtney Mighell is a health and fitness junkie, competitive professional bodybuilder, NGA certified judge, online fitness coach, entrepreneur, healthy baker, IIFYM-follower, Speech Therapist and passionate about life! My love for all things health and fitness was sparked at young age as when I began doing competitive gymnastics. Later in high school, I was introduced to strength training as a way to improve my performance in sports, but it became so much more. After moving on from school-based competitive sports, lifting weights was an outlet to keep healthy, shape my body and push myself by testing my strength.
I quickly fell in love with the process. In 2014, I was ready to take the next step in the competitive bodybuilding world and I achieved my natural pro figure card at my third show. Three years later in 2017, I dieted for over nine months to compete in the pro figure division winning my first pro figure title. My dedication to bodybuilding transferred over to other areas of my life and has opened doors to incredible opportunities. Over the course of the last five years, I have become an expert in health and fitness through countless hours of research, coaching and personal anecdotes. I want to share my love of health and fitness with others to guide and support their journey so they may gain the confidence to change their life.

“I have been working with Courtney for 8 months, not only have I seen major changes in my weight but my overall health has improved significantly. Courtney teaches “flexible dieting”, this is the idea of still living your life but making smarter food choices along the way. She has molded my fixed mindset of dieting into a growth one. It’s not all about what is on the scale. It is about making good choices while going out with friends, focusing on successes other than the scale, and incorporating exercise into everyday life. She has created individualized workout plans and macros schedules for me each week. She modifies workouts to what I have available to me and helps me with decisions about food. She always responds to my texts or emails right away. She motivates me and it always open and honest about my progress. Courtney pushes me to be the best human I can be whether it’s congratulating me on a race, helping me with recipes, and just overall support in life. Courtney is more than just a coach, she is a friend.”
