An avid fitness enthusiast, Melissa finds her calm either on the trail running up a hill or moving a barbell of her same size. The importance of staying healthy and active was instilled in her after witnessing the degenerative effects of poor diet routines and the sedentary lifestyles within her family. She obtained a degree in psychology and afterwards set off to pursue an education in her other love: exercise science. Melissa’s style emphasizes the importance of resistance training for building stronger bones and joints to face the everyday battles of life, and helping clients realize their inner athlete. She creates individualized programs that center around building a sturdy foundation of education, correcting muscle imbalances, and developing overall strength. With experience in the physical therapy field, each customized program is designed with the safety of the client in mind, including those with past or present injuries. She is currently pursing both a certification with the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a certified strength and conditioning coach as well as a future degree in physical therapy.
