"I started training with Melissa a little over two months ago after having my 2nd baby and have found the experience a welcome return to fitness. She is extremely knowledgeable around postpartum fitness and the boundaries of women’s post baby bodies. Melissa is not afraid to push me hard and keeps the sessions engaging with many different exercise options all whilst ensuring progression on my fitness journey. She keeps me honest with dietary check ins and at home exercise routines and is a pleasure to train with, which makes the tough sessions a lot easier to handle."
