For Morgantown-area personal trainer Micki Pauley and her clients, working out is a way of life—a Micki Lifestyle, to be exact. For the past five years, the elementary school teacher–turned–fitness guru has been advising others how to transform, sculpt, and fuel their bodies in ways that are sustainable and fun. After just one session with Pauley, a personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist certified through ISSA, clients know her philosophy: “There are no doovers.” If you want to see for yourself what Micki Lifestyle is all about, head on over to her Warrior Body group fitness classes at Viking Performance Training, where beginners and regulars alike sweat their way through tire flips and gasp for breath between running sets of stairs. “My warriors find out not just how strong they are physically, but how strong they are mentally, and that is what is important,” Pauley says. “When you can build a strong mind, everything else falls into place.” — KC
