To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to hire a personal trainer. After suffering with chronic neck and back issues for over 20 years, I was concerned that it might flare up my injuries. As a last resort, I thought I would try personal training. I figured I had nothing to lose after trying every method possible to rehabilitate myself. My big goal was to have a straighter spine and maybe even try a pull up!
Right from the start, Melissa put me at ease in what I thought could have been an intimidating environment. Melissa was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, and compassionate. She watched me like a hawk to ensure that my injuries would not flare up, and that I had proper form in light of my history. She went above and beyond to reach out to me after our sessions to make sure I was okay. I have now been with Melissa for many sessions. I have never had the same workout twice because she’s inventive and always seems extremely engaged in my training. I truly cannot say enough good things about her.
I was very reluctant to sign up for personal training just because I didn’t know what to expect. I had been out of the gym for a few years and was quite nervous to get back into that environment. Melissa has been great from the start. She’s very personable and has a lot of patience when it comes to everyone’s individual needs. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to injuries and modifying exercises for you as well. Melissa is always professional, shows up on time, and even when I show up not ready to workout somehow she gets me through it. Highly recommend her if you are looking for a trainer!
Melissa is a very knowledgeable and skilled trainer. I have a few spinal/elbow/wrist/nerve issues and she has been able to tailor my sessions to what I need to heal as well as what I am capable of that day. I can strengthen my body while saving myself more damage. If something starts to go into strong pins and needles Melissa alters the techniques so I can continue to train. This is the strongest my body has ever been. She’s opened my eyes to what I can do and I am so excited about that. She makes it fun as well as pushes me when I need it.
