How Michael Chabala Stays Fit in Style

Mellanie Perez and Juliet Childers | May 3, 2017 | Feature Features

Feeling and looking your best takes savvy and dedication. Just ask the three individuals in our health and beauty portfolio. Here, they reveal the products they swear by, the fitness regimens they follow, their nutrition musts and even a secret or two.

Former Houston Dynamo and creator of Sphere Fit training at the Four Seasons

Former left back Michael Chabala brings the frenetic energy of his pro soccer days to a new, exclusive training program at the Four Seasons. The class, based on his previous training regimen, includes 30 minutes of high-intensity interval training, 15 minutes of fat-burning medicine ball exercises, and full access to the Four Seasons spa, gym and pool deck facilities. Because of his on-the-go lifestyle as an athlete and entrepreneur, Chabala has to keep things simple. A natural hairstyle, an appetite for forward motion and daily green juices keep him going throughout the day.


“Daily juicing always gets me going in the morning.”

“I like a natural, raw look from [hair salon] Blue Mambo.”

“After my morning workout, a 10- to 15-minute steam session is the reboot my body needs.”

“My esthetician is a champ and runs her own boutique, Flawless Studio.”

“I’ve tried every workout out there. That’s why I structured my training programs how I have.”

Cheat Days
“I have a strict diet, but when I do go out, I am all about the fajitas and margaritas at El Tiempo.”
