Welcome to Lightning Sports Medicine


My name is Michelle Sudol. I am the content creator and entrepreneur behind this training complex.

I have over thirty years of experience training students of all age health and healing. While I have worked in clinics, gyms, schools and colleges all over the country, I started my journey in emergency medicine at age 16 as a volunteer on the rescue squad. In addition to my First Responder certification, advanced lifesaving and CPR, I also became a certified Lifeguard. It was at this time I started gaining experience working with adapted programming for students with mental and physical disabilities.

When I was nineteen, I got my first group fitness certification with AFAA and immediately began working learning to build choreography on land and also began building aquatic rehabilitation programming for an arthritis class in the pool. Water continues to be one of my favorite mediums to work in for everyone from prenatal, adapted, elite athletes or rehabilitation.

After graduating from the University of Vermont, I travelled all over the country, and collected several more nationally recognized certifications, including NSCA Strength and Conditioning, Yoga, Pilates, ACSM Exercise Physiologist, and the NATA Athletic Training Certification. I am currently a Licensed Athletic Trainer in the lovely state of Vermont.

The destination is not as important at the journey. Let’s find the path together.
