Ep.64 Liberte Free to Be, 

 with Olympian, life coach and mentor Michelle Griffith Robinson


This weeks guest is Michelle Griffith Robinson who is an Olympian, a life coach, a trainer and an ambassador for Diabetes UK. Michelle represented Great Britain for two decades as a Triple Jumper, competing at the highest level, including at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. 
Michelle can also add that she became the first woman to jump over 14 metres in the Commonwealth to her already impressive CV. 

After retiring in 2006 she had already become an established successful Personal Trainer and had realised just how much physical fitness is attached to a positive mindset. 

"To achieve our ambitions we must first believe in ourselves" 

I talked with Michelle to find out where her drive came from and what her journey has been like since stepping in to this new career path. I can't tell you what an absolute pleasure it was talking with Michelle and her generosity and kindness to want to help others rise up oozes out of her.
