"I have bought 10 fitness training sessions with Melissa and now I have bought another 10 sessions. She is amazing. I told her my goals and she has stuck with them. She is very creative with workouts. We do workouts that I have never done before. She looks at your posture and fixes the posture if needed. Melissa really looks out for you. She gives advice about meals and helps on days you don't have session with a workout plan to keep your goals going. We laugh, we have fun and we stay focused! I can go on and on about her. I recommend her for a trainer; she really has the passion for working out. Passion is everything. She definitely has it."
"In working with Melissa through the healthy reset program, personal coaching and personal fitness training I learned how to set and achieve goals resulting in major changes in my life. I am healthier, happier and stronger as a result of her unique combination of firm yet gentle insistence on remaining accountable to myself and to my goals. I highly recommend Melissa as a coach and a fitness trainer. I have implemented exercise and nutrition systems into my daily life that are now established habits I look forward to rather than the dreaded chores they used to be. Melissa helped me change my outlook and created the mental shift that was necessary for me to make changes in my life."

“It took me only a few sessions with Melissa before I realized what lifestyle changes I needed to make. Not just to curb my weight gain but to be a happier, more joyful person. She was understanding and more than willing to be flexible around my insane work schedule. Five months later I’ve found the courage and clarity to make the changes I want to make in my life and Melissa was the one who put me on that path! Thank you so much!”

“I thoroughly enjoy working with my life coach, Melissa. Melissa moves through the muck and asks questions to hone in to the deepest root cause of an issue. With her, there’s no avoiding doing the real work and welcoming change no matter how challenging it might look at the time. Melissa is my coach for a lifetime. I’ve done some heavy lifting through my work with her and made major adjustments to live my true life. From time to time I continue to work with her for tune-ups. Melissa is dedicated to unveil your best self! And I love the fact that she walks the talk. Melissa is the real thing!!”
“I hated to exercise. Melissa was supportive and encouraging. She was like "let's just work on diet then". I was able to find an activity that I loved and continue to do 4-5 days/week. She is an amazing motivator--non-judgmental, always available. She got me excited about taking care of myself for once. I am a busy professional and self-care was the last thing on my list of priorities! The Healthy Reset program was a game changer for me. I have recommended it to friends!!!”
Jen, Washington, DC
“During the 30 Day Healthy Reset and one on one coaching with Melissa, I learned a great deal about exercising, about eating clean and just making good choices when it comes to my health. I was already at a turning point in my life but with the Coach on the spot concept, I definitely feel that Melissa gave me that push that I needed to finally take my life back!!!”
“I love working out with Coach Melissa at Florida Fitness Concepts! Her vast knowledge, passion and motivating spirit has helped me reach new heights on my fitness journey. Melissa’s attention to personalized fitness training and form are incredible. I highly recommend Melissa if you are seeking to live out your healthiest and strongest life. Healthy = Happy."

“My motto used to be “I’ll do anything to lose weight and get fit except diet and exercise!” After several years of getting more and more out of shape and gaining the “middle-age spread", I realized that way of life was not serving my best interests. I have known Melissa for about 13 years and have watched her with awe as she grew in her career and life as an amazing Mom, friend and Coach….. always positive, strong and compassionate. After hemming and hawing for many months, with the thought of asking Melissa to be my Life-Coach, I finally bit the bullet and faced my fears. What a life-changing decision that was!! In the beginning, I said I would try it for 12 weeks, then at the end of that 12 weeks, without hesitation, was on board for another amazing 12 weeks with Melissa as my Coach. I must say, “Coach” doesn’t really cover everything that Melissa has been to me in these past 6 months. Yes, she’s a friend for many years, but is also a mentor, confidant, counselor and best bud on top of being an unbelievable life coach. She has a way of gently, but powerfully guiding you through the steps to attain goals that seem unfathomable, at times. Her sure voice seems to resonate with you throughout each week, reminding you that you are on the right track to being a better you. Not only have I managed to become a "gym rat” and love it, but have become much more self-aware about nutrition, personal habits and my relationships, among other areas of my life. I am so happy and proud to have made the decision to have Melissa as my Life Coach and will be forever grateful to her for helping me change for the better and to continue to improve my way of life as I continue on this journey. ”
"Melissa is professional and pushes me to do my best but she is not intimidating. She always makes me feel comfortable and keeps the workouts varied so they are enjoyable and never boring. I highly recommend her as a consummate fitness professional."
Cari, Arlington, VA
“Melissa literally saved my career–her knowledge, motivation, humor and accountability were exactly what I needed for the “aha” moment! I focused new energy on being well and helping others in this journey called life.”
“Working with Melissa helped me learn what I wanted, and how to set achievable short term goals to help me reach my long term ones. She helped me build the confidence I needed to get out of the rut I was in and make important changes in my life. I am now working on a new career path and practicing healthy eating habits as well as mindfulness. I am very grateful for everything Melissa taught me and would recommend her in an instant to anyone in need of a coach.”
"Melissa helped me define an authentic wellness vision and take steps every week to achieve it. I appreciate her ability to help me achieve clarity about what I really wanted and needed during that time in my life!"
Karen, South Carolina
“Melissa has the innate ability to help one get out of their own way. I could not have made the changes to move forward and toward wellness without Melissa’s guidance. Thank you for helping give me the courage to do many things I needed to do. I feel like I am getting my groove back and being a better mom, wife and friend. I am more confident every day and my stress level is so much better. I feel confident that I am adding more days to my life. Hiring Melissa is one of the best investments I have ever made. "
“I have been working with Melissa since November 2018. When we started our workouts, my joints hurt daily and my range of motion was limited. Four months later, I have the tools to keep moving, stretching my achy muscles and my joints no longer ache. I plan to continue working out with Melissa "
