VIDA Fitness
Regional Group Fitness Manager
Michaela Brown serves as the regional group fitness manager at VIDA Fitness and the chairwoman of the company's inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Board. Brown is a veteran of the fitness industry with over 20 years of experience as an athlete, coach, personal trainer and group exercise instructor. Prior to joining VIDA's team, she was a successful entrepreneur, having run a popular women's fitness studio for 12 years in Washington, DC. Her certifications include NASM-CPT, AFAA Group Exercise, Barre Fitness, Les Mills Advanced Bodypump Instructor, TRX and Pilates Mat, to name a few.

Brown earned her bachelor’s degree in political science from Georgetown University, with dual minor degrees in Japanese language and communications. She also takes great pride in being the first Black letter-winner and captain of the university's Women’s Field Hockey team. Brown served two terms as the president of Georgetown's Collegiate NAACP Chapter, and one term as the vice president of the Nu Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc; so, chairing VIDA's Diversity and Inclusion Board feels like a return back to her true roots of public service, social justice and activism. It is with this energy and passion that Brown seeks to use her knowledge, resources and platform to blaze trails for the next generation of diverse, fitness professionals.
