Michelle Hardy is a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and brandishes a bachelors degree in Sports Science and Fitness Management, with a Pre-Physical Therapy concentration. She is currently pursuing a masters degree in Health Promotion and Education at East Carolina University.

She was born in Fort Hood, Texas but was raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, along with three other siblings by her mother who was stationed at Fort Bragg and retired from in the United States Army after serving for 22 years.

Hardy became a certified Personal Trainer in May of 2014, after several rounds of convincing and encouragement from her professor. She has also earned specialists certifications in Sports Nutrition, Injury Prevention, Circuit Training, and is studying to obtain a Women’s Health certification.

With all of her accolades and achievments, Hardy is certainly putting them to good use. She owns and manages a fitness program, BeHardyFit, LLC. In additional to personal training (individually, and group), she promotes health and wellness. Her products and services include free wellness consultations, 30 and 60 minute personal training sessions. There are also plans in the works for a mentoring program. Titled “What’s the 411?” the program is designed to mentor adolescent and teenage girls. It will be presented by BeHardyFit and conducted at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Greensboro.

BeHardyFit is a vision that Hardy says she had for many years. “I would find myself making fitness videos and posting them via social media. When I first graduated college, I was employed at the Hayes Taylor YMCA and still trying to figure out what career I wanted to take. There were many nights where I would stress and cry over a life I felt was lived aimlessly. Then, one day I was able to land a job in the Health and Fitness industry with a company located in Winston-Salem, NC. The vision of BeHardyFit fully came back to life,” she says.

Hardy recently lauched a fundraising event, BeHardyPink to help support the cause with fighting breast cancer and spread awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. “This was a vision that I have had for many years. Ever since I was child, I knew my destiny was to be someobe that would change the world by helping others. I believe that my life and my business will help inspire others from all walks of life,” she says.

“Just recently, my fitness mentor Coach Lynch Hunt of AWOL Fitness inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and go for whatever I wanted to do in life, no matter what the circumstances may be. My spiritual parents, Pastor Joseph and Lady Tee Frierson of Mount Zion Baptist Church of Greensboro also helped me with seeing my vision more clearly with their constant guidance,” she says. “The reward is not in the darkness of the tunnel, but it is in the light that’s at the end of it.”

Family is the foundation of Hardy’s purpose. Her mother has been her constant supporter and it’s so important for her to be able to give back to her someday. “My sister instilled in me that you won’t know the outcome of something until you try it. If you fail at it, you can always say that you at least tried it,” says Hardy. Her brother, who is the ultimate male figure in her life, has always pushed her to give more. “He has been my listening ear, my motivation and one of my biggest supporters,” she says.

Hardy’s plans for the future are to expand her business internationally and to inspire others beyond a fitness aspect. This November, she is planning to conduct a Turkey Drive (in honor of Thanksgiving) to extend a hand for others in need. She also plans to conduct a Toy Drive in December for the same exact reason. In February 2018, BeHardyFit will host a fundraising event for Heart Awareness Month.
