Michelle McGovern is the Chief Executive Officer at uforia, where she feels lucky everyday to be a part of the best fitness community in San Francisco. Michelle spent over ten years working in the private equity and retail industries before joining uforia, including stints at Google and Gap Inc., serving most recently as the Senior Manager of Strategy and Business Development at Banana Republic. Michelle originally found her passion for group fitness as a high school athlete, but gained the “freshman 15” (plus some more) while working toward an engineering degree as an undergraduate. Group fitness helped Michelle lose 50 pounds, and since then she has sought to educate and inspire those on similar journeys.
Michelle holds her B.S. in Management, Science & Engineering from Stanford University, her MBA from The Wharton School and is an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer. She currently lives in Marin with her husband Mike and two dogs (Berkeley and Charlie). She enjoys running, cycling, baking treats and watching football with her family when she’s not embracing the sweat at uforia studios.
Michelle’s fave uforia value:
