      So inspirational!! I myself get really bad anxiety, it was so common to feel the way you felt but at every track meet and anytime I was the focus of attention! I recently picked up an interest in ice skating which is how i came across your video (which you executed so well!) I might really try it out after watching this, thank you! You did amazing after ONLY doing it in a span of 8 weeks, you’re stronger than you think :)

    You aren’t old figure skating just has very strict age restrictions so many people start quite young. Me as a skater myself am always rushing forward when I’m not completely ready for the next level as competing in certain categories have different age limits. So don’t feel old or bad about yourself because you’re actually quite good at many things including figure skating especially going into it with no experience at all.

    Try aerial silks with aerial physique in LA coz they are very proffesional and also a very good joooob, I couldnt believe my eyes seeing you skating like this, that was incredibly good considering your fear 👏👏👏.
    Also you are not old at all! and know you are a badass bcoz if I tried even stepping on that ice I would have broken my neck or head or something for sure bcoz Im that clumsy and scared.

    I was an artistic roller skater for years, doing much of what ice skaters do (but warmer, with heavier skates, and your butt doesn't get wet when you fall). I just want to say, Michelle, that I am so proud and happy for you, reaching for your dream, and working so incredibly hard. Nothing you did is easy, and it's *hard* for adults to be beginners at anything. But you achieved so much in an incredibly short period of time. You should be incredibly proud of yourself.

    "Why can't I just be confident out the gate??" I felt that. In my core.
    I have so much respect for you to be able to push through. One day I hope I can do the same. I'll keep trying.

    I think when you put too much pressure on yourself your mind and paranoia takes over and the failure you think you will give them (the trainers) will take over your body. Just have fun and say Fuck it and do it! Who cares what others think. My way of thinking is no one will truly remember me and fuck them and everyone else!

    You should do “I trained like an Olympian swimmer” that would be really interesting highly recommended

    It's sad to say that I relate incredibly to the "Am I too old?" question, considering I'm fifteen haha. There are so many things, too many things to do. There's not enough time to do all of it. It's not possible to know at the age of 5 that when im 17 I'll want to do ballet or play violin or something but be too old. Of course, it's never too late to start something new, but starting something later on in life gets rid of a lot of opportunities. Say, starting figure skating at 25 gets rid of what could be 15 years or so of competing and improving and by the time you get to the skill level to compete in major competitions like PyeongChang or Grand Prix, there's not much time left before your prime is over, before your body starts losing stamina and not being able to do as many spins or jumps or stay out in the cold as long...

    Michelle you are the only person that I know that would do all of your challenges with marine boot camp which I know is hard. You lasted so long. You are so strong and you can push your limits which I can't relate. Michelle you are a strong woman. ❤️

    Crazy idea: try playing gokf. It is not only getting all the technical things right. But also a huuuge mental fight with yourself to stay in the right mindset... It really helped me growing up and owning my own flaws (in the game and rl) and mistakes i make can cost me. But not necessarily ruin tthe round or the fun in the game. Just not sure if itll make for an exciting challenge. Love your videos though. You've been an inspiration since your buzzfeed time to me. Love from a fan from the Netherlands

    For the extremely short time you were training you should be very happy with your results. My daughter competes Junior ladies and has been skating for years. What I didn’t hear mentioned was most high level skaters use sports psychologists to help break through the fear and doubt. Thank you for making people aware of the difficultly of the sport. There are many who do not think figure skating is a sport. I hope your blisters are better!

    I’ve said it before I will say it again, I think you should train to be a professional Mermaid. It would be so cool, and I know it would be a huge challenge, like so much more goes into it than you’d think.

    First of all Michelle, you aren’t old. Today at work I met a gentleman who was skiing at 89. Old, to a point, is a state of mind I personally believe. Staying active, staying fit, and staying positive are the keys to doing this. Confidence is something we learn daily in everything we do; I see this daily at my job every season of the year, but in different ways. When you work in the tourist/ amusement park industry you see a lot of things, it makes life very fun.

    You should try competitive horse back riding! If you trained for the olympic level, it would have dressage, cross country and jumper. It would be so hard but so cool to see you conquer!

    This video made me so happy I got all ready eyed. Michelle, you're wonderful and did so amazingly I'm just... honestly, this just made me so happy. I absolutely get the whole thing with having some kind of mental deadline for all the stuff you think you have to accomplish at "that age".
    I keep thinking the same thing and it bothers me to no end. But watching you gives me hope I'm not entirely hopeless/useless. Just gotta be less afraid of falling.
    Sorry, probably rambling. Thank you so much for this video.
