Hi there! I'm Melissa. I'm a certified personal trainer, nutrition coach, college instructor & momprenuer.
My mission is to empower women to live their healthiest life, at their ideal weight, in a way that is fun, intuitive and sustainable.
I know so many women who feel stuck, overwhelmed, confused, unmotivated, stressed, hopeless, not sure where to even begin, or just OVER IT when it comes to healthy eating, diet & weight. loss.
They feel as if they are constantly ping-ponging back and forth between willpower and over-indulgence.
Both of these options feel miserable and lead to unwanted results.
I promise, there is a MUCH better way.
Weight Loss is not about counting calories, spending hours in the gym, or aiming for some societal standard of the “perfect” body.
Healthy living is not about willpower, deprivation or mentally beating ourselves into submission.
It is not about believing we will be more worthy once we are thinner.
What is it about then?
It's about understanding how to eat & move in ways that empower, fuel & sustain us (this can actually be pretty simple!).
It's about understanding how the brain works and why it is often keeping us stuck in patterns that don't serve us.
It's about understanding the cause of our emotions and how they are driving our actions.
It’s about learning how to show up for ourselves and live our life to the fullest.
It’s about loving ourselves unconditionally and learning to have the highest level of self-compassion.
What I Teach:
I teach women specific strategies to overcome their barriers and mental blocks around diet & weight loss.
I teach them how get unstuck & take the right actions to get them where they want to go (& stay there for life!).
I teach them how to understand what is happening on a deeper level, both physically & mentally, so they can finally tackle the issues that are holding them back and reach their goals.
After many years in this business working with hundreds of clients I truly believe (& have seen the evidence) that this is the ultimate key to managing our weight, our health & our life for good.
I want to help you take back your power from food. I want you to feel like you can step back into your life as the best version of yourself FOR yourself. I want you to reach goals you didn’t even think were possible and blow your own mind in the process.
If you are ready for a new way of looking at healthy eating, diet, exercise & weight loss I’d love to help! Click below to schedule a free consultation .
