Michelle’s Bio-

Michelle Berger is the founder of www.BuffMother.com and creator of Team BuffMother online support group.   She is lovingly referred to as BuffMother by her family, friends, clients and online followers and teammates. Michelle’s body had been ravaged by having 4 kids in just 4 years, including twins via a c-section, yet 1 year later she was able to win 5 NPC figure competition titles and went on to compete at the National level. Stunned by her own transformation, She wanted to scream from the rooftops that the forever doom of a “MOMMY body” was a LIE!! With her best body ever AFTER having kids, Michelle wanted every help every woman in the world to know the joy of being fit, healthy, strong and loved!! BuffMother, Michelle Berger, wanted to give women hope!

In January of 2005, she started a website: www.BuffMother.com in order to reach the world.  Michelle quickly became one of the world’s top fitness gurus and a highly sought after online trainer.  The program she created, follows and teaches is called Hormonal Timing. It specifically addresses the unique stumbling blocks women face in their fitness and diet quest. Michelle studied Exercise Science and Nutrition at NDSU and felt there was a missing piece in traditional training protocols.  Hormones were and are still vastly ignored by most personal trainers. That’s why Michelle created “Hormonal Timing” a program that equips women to work with their natural hormonal cycle to attain accelerated results in their diet and fitness program. Through this unique training system, Michelle has helped transform the bodies of thousands of mothers.  BuffMother’s books “Hormonal Timing” and “After Baby Abs” quickly become bestsellers and led Michelle to become a star of her own infomercial about the unique training program.  Michelle has also been a model for many years enjoys producing videos for her YouTube channel and most recently acted in her first movie!

Michelle’s proudest accomplishment is that she’s been able to stay consistent and balanced in her life through all the chaos of motherhood and entrepreneurship.  She’s been happily married to her husband Travis for nearly 22 years.  Their children ages 15, 13, 12 and 12 are all very fit, healthy and smart, like their Mom. Over the past 14 years, this BUFFMOTHER has truly led by example in having a dream body, a dream life and has created a healthy legacy!

Thanks, your new friend,

Michelle “BuffMother” Berger

Michelle’s Christian Testimony

I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ. He is my strength and my salvation. I owe who I am entirely to HIM!!

I have a GREAT life and I owe my peace, success, and happiness to GOD. I was born again young and grew up in a Christian home, searched out and married a Christian man and now live am raising a Christian Family. I don’t understand what life would be like without Jesus Christ, nor do I want to.

I believe that God has called me to inspire women, especially mothers to BELIEVE that they are in control of their bodies, lives and the legacies they leave to their children. I have a huge unyielding passion to use my knowledge and personal fitness success to reach millions of women and be a shining “light in the darkness” for Jesus.

If you would like to know more about how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, I would love to correspond with you. Please e-mail me: buffmother@gmail.com

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him” John 3:16,17

Here are a few Christian books that have touched me deeply in recent years:

  1. The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson
  2. Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian
  3. Reduce Me To Love by Joyce Meyer
