"Melissa’s TRX classes made me love working out and being active again"
Melissa has been on my fitness journey since 2018, after having my first child. I say journey because fitness for me is a lifestyle not just a quick fix. As a college athlete and Active Duty Service Member I was having difficulty losing baby weight from my first child at the age of 38. Melissa’s TRX classes made me love working out and being active again. I continued to make strives with her classes. Then arrives pregnancy number two. Due to my fitness level, I was able to continue to train with Melissa until I was at 34 weeks in my pregnancy. After delivering at 36 weeks, I was back to TRX at day 7 post-delivery. Oh, I am 40 at this time. I then decided to take Melissa on as a Personal Trainer, and train with her twice a week. I continued to take her TRX and Cycle classes as well. I can say that her motivational skills and support are unprecedented. She knows exactly when to push and when not to push. I am now 11 months post-partum and have lost 70 pounds. I am still on my fitness journey and am extremely excited to have Melissa by my side to my ultimate goal.
"My favorite thing about my workouts with Melissa is being able to do exercises that I didn't think were possible."
The advice I would give new clients is to be patient and do not give up. There may be moments that are trying, but show up and do it anyway. My favorite thing about my workouts with Melissa is being able to do exercises that I didn't think were possible. Because of my arthritis and the pain that I’ve experienced over several years, I’d abandoned my “can do” attitude. Melissa motivated me to step outside my comfort zone. She helped me strengthen muscles and areas of my body that I had given up on. She is attentive and can immediately alter exercises based on your ability.
My favorite thing about my workouts is the sense of accomplishment at the end of the session. I take pride in knowing that I am doing something to better myself. It works wonders on my mental health.
"Melissa didn't even bat an eye and put me on a great, custom workout plan that got me ready for the intense adventure"
Great custom workouts! ✅ Great accountability.✅ Workouts for your level and pace. ✅ I'm not a gym buff but when I set my heart on making Mt. Fuji my first ever hike/climb, Melissa didn't even bat an eye and put me on a great, custom workout plan that got me ready for the intense adventure in just a few months. I'm looking forward to the day I can train with her again.
