Hi, my name is Mikaela Porazzo. I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and love helping others discover the benefits of exercise.
I've been an athlete my whole life, but it wasn't until a few years ago that fitness became one of my biggest passions. After suffering for years from stomach issues, indegestion, and anxiety, I started exercising regularly and almost all of my symptoms went away.
Since then, working out has become part of my regular routine, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I currently live in Denver, Colorado, where I mostly grew up, but I also spent a lot of my life in New England and Southern California. I've moved around a lot, but I wouldn't change the experiences I've had for the world.
I am obsessed with corgis and hope to own one soon. I studied Entrepreneurship in college in Los Angeles, and I love digital marketing and startups.

So, where did the name "Mirabella Blue" come from?
Good question....a while back in my senior year of high school, my AP Lit teacher, insisted on giving nicknames to her students rather than calling them by their real names. She was a bit of a character.
I was one of the (lucky?) ones to have received a name during the first week of class, which was Mirabella. She said it meant 'wonderous beauty,' which I took as a compliment considering many of the other names she came up with weren't all that flattering.
Even though she made me cry a couple times (she was an impossible grader and was also really scary), she was one of the teacher's who had the biggest impact on me.
Anyway, a few years passed and I was thinking about how I wanted to start my own business someday. One night, I randomly thought starting a beauty company would be cool. I promised myself that I would name it Mirabella Blue, to pay homage to the nickname and to my favorite color, blue. Plus it totally sounds like a beauty company name, right?
A few more years later, around September 2015, I decided to start a beauty and fashion blog. Still remembering that I wanted to name my first business Mirabella Blue, I purchased the domain and figured that a blog could technically be the start of my first business.
It wasn't long before I realized that I'm actually not very good at beauty blogging and that fitness is much more my style. So, Mirabella Blue the fitness blog was born!
