ISSA Certfified Fitness Instructor, former Army Sergeant :

My enlistment in the United States Army has helped shape me into the person I am today. Along with instilment of brotherhood and camaraderie, the Army has made physical fitness and integral part of my life. As an Army Sergeant one of my priorities was maintaining the fitness and well-being of my soldiers, and I continue to use this mentality as I lead and instruct others in workouts that focus on improving strength, flexibility, and functional range of motion.

Melissa has always had a passion for athletics and exercise, but being a mom of 4, much of that exercise time was sacrificed.  However, the itch to participate in group fitness classes became unbearable, and after hearing such phenomenal things about Corps Fitness, Melissa decided to give it a try and was hooked instantly.  Her journey with Corps Fitness started being 15 pounds overweight, but through training and weight loss challenges, Melissa has shed that weight and achieved what she feels is the best physical fitness level of her life.  Having been a religious participant in the classes at Corps Fitness for 5 years, Melissa soon became interested in helping others achieve fitness goals and to help others also become part of a great community in Corps Fitness.  She believes that with a devoted work ethic and a “Yes I can” attitude, any goal can be accomplished no matter your gender, age, size or starting physical fitness level.
    I went into the Marine Corps right out of high school as an overweight football player and returned lean, fit and able to take on any challenge. The philosophy that was ingrained in me changed my outlook on fitness and being active. I started Corps Fitness with the philosophy of exposing people to the motivation and self realization I experienced in boot camp. I was pushed beyond what I thought was my limit and that redefined what I knew I could accomplish. In 1998 I was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition and as a result of my Marine Corps experience I only became more determined to make the best of my situation. My goal with Corps Fitness and the IM ABLE Foundation is to inspire others to look inside themselves to push forward despite their challenges. No Excuses…Just MOVE!
