Coach on the Spot

Hi, I'm Melissa Ross, Health, Fitness, Wellness Professional and Owner behind Coach On the Spot.

I take great pride in the business of helping women be true to themselves and take action to make their health, fitness and well-being a priority. Whatever goals, dreams and desires you have, you deserve to pursue and live them. I take a whole-person approach with each client. I want to hear about your lifestyle, habits, goals and dreams so I can best serve you. Becoming the best and healthiest version of you falls squarely on feeling good about yourself first and then getting uber resourceful and confident. 

I'm blessed that my 30+ year career is my passion. I started my career as a group exercise instructor and personal fitness trainer and I was hooked for life. I kept learning, growing, serving and remaining grateful and never looked back.
