Michaela Brown

VIDA Fitness & Aura Spa
General Manager
Known for her tenacious energy, ambition, and commitment to physical fitness, Michaela Brown is a General Manager at VIDA Fitness where she empowers the company’s culture, operations, and community impact. A veteran of the fitness industry with over 20 years of experience as an athlete, coach, personal trainer, and group exercise instructor, her success in the field comes as no surprise. Prior to joining VIDA's team, Michaela was a successful entrepreneur, having run a popular women's fitness studio for 12 years in Washington, DC. With a proven track record in driving organizational excellence and steering positive collaborative environments, she serves as Chairwoman of VIDA's first Diversity and Inclusion Board, lending a wealth of vision and experience to the organization’s mission.

Michaela 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. Michaela 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 Michaela seeks to use her knowledge, resources and platform to blaze trails for the next, diverse generation of fitness professionals.
