Melissa is a holistic health and fitness enthusiast!
My passion is helping clients uncover the formula for their unique self in order to live a healthy, energetic, and purposeful life.

I have always been passionate about health, fitness and nutrition.  However, in today's society there is so much conflicting information, different opinions, fad diets and trends to follow that we become overwhelmed.  This can sometimes create unhealthy habits, when we are trying so hard to live a healthy life.  Through years of experimenting with the latest and greatest trends, fad diets and attempting to live a healthy life, I found myself unbalanced and unhealthy. Having a baby inspired me to follow my passion for health and fitness, so I could learn to decipher the conflicting information about nutrition and fitness, truly nourish my body, and be a good role model for my daughter.

I studied to be an integrative health and nutrition coach at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC, where I became a Certified Health Coach recognized by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.

I further expanded my nutrition and fitness knowledge by becoming a Masters Sports Nutritionist and Certified Personal Trainer at the National Association of Sports Nutrition in San Diego, where I became proficient in exercise metabolism, body composition testing, metabolic evaluation, pre and post workout fueling and nutrition for recovery. I also discovered a love for reformer Pilates and completed the training to become a Pilates instructor.

Hours of reading, research and certification through the Self Talk Institute, taught me that your mindset and internal self-talk play a vital role in whether or not you're successful in achieving your goals.  I work with clients to help them shift negative self-talk and limiting beliefs into a positive mindset in order to reach their full potential.

My coaching method is based on whole, natural food nutrition and bio-individuality.  I understand that each client is unique and has different goals that they want to reach.  What works for one individual, may not work for another.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic and sports nutrition, health and mindset coaching, and preventive health practices. This allows me to work with clients to help them make simple lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
