"Melissa has been my fitness trainer for the past 10 months. I am in her exercise classes 3x weekly, and I have also participated in two 12-week challenges with her. She is very knowledgeable about both physical training and nutrition. She challenges us to do our best, but always provides alternatives for anyone with an injury or other condition. We have both men and women in our classes, a wide range of ages and fitness levels, and everybody gets a great workout in every class. I am not the most fit person, and I really appreciate that she often modifies a workout so that I am able to participate fully, even if I am sometimes unable to completely do some exercises.
Melissa has been a very good coach for the 12 week challenges, as she knows a lot about nutrition as well as exercise. She is very organized, and encourages us to plan and prep all our meals. She provides menus, recipes, organizational tips, even coaches us through our vacations and celebrations which tend to derail our best intentions. She understands this and helps pull us through the lapses to get back on track. During the time I have been training with Melissa, I have lost 17.5 pounds and dropped 8.2% body fat. I am stronger, have more energy and look much better now too. If you’re looking for a trainer who is friendly and understanding but one who will challenge you wherever you are on the fitness scale, I highly recommend Melissa Jansen."
