I found Melissa 5 years ago. She is an amazing trainer who I found searching for someone who knows about my condition of MS. She has kept me physically fit and active by changing the routine of my workouts for me so that I would never be complacent. I am happy to say that I have been successful with my balance and strengthening due to Melissa. Thank you, Melissa!
Optimum Condition may be a small gym with limited equipment. But I guarantee you will get a vigorous workout, leaving you with a good tired feeling and feeling invigorated. Melissa is so knowledgable about exercise and the body and what works. I enrolled in a 12-week personal training session and my biceps grew 1 1/2 inches and I lifted no more than 20-pound Dumbbells. Learning to perform exercises the right way has made a big difference in how I feel.
I have been working with Melissa for 5 weeks and after 2 hip replacements, I needed some one on one. The program she created for me is awesome. I am seeing many changes in my strength and endurance, starting to feel back to normal.
I started training with Melissa in June 2010 based on a strong recommendation from a friend. I was impressed with Melissa's education, training, experience, and credentials as well as her understanding of body mechanics. She tailors workouts based on your needs. I had osteoporosis and sciatic pain and both conditions have improved sigificantly since I started working out with Melissa. Not only that but I have gone from a size 10 to a size 6 and lost the 25 pounds I gained in menopause in less than six months! I've read extensively on the effects of aging and what to do to minimize those effects. What I read consistently was to exercise at least one hour a day, six days a week. Based on that, I workout three days a week with Melissa and do other exercises the other three days. I have found being accountable to another person as well as myself has kept me motivated. Melissa regularly changes my routine and has added exercises that previously I would have shied away from, felt intimated by or would have avoided, since I'm not the athletic or exercise type. I now do those exercises with confidence! If you have the good fortune to hire a personal trainer, you will be impressed with the improvements you will gain having Melissa as your trainer. She has a positive attitude, our sessions are fun, and the time goes by quickly.
I went to optimum condition to recover from RSD. was told that i would never be able to walk with out the assistance of a cain.Through hard work and dedication i can say that i am in great health. I followed the plan set by Melissa and am now in a better place physically. I don't walk with a cain and my Neurologist say that he had never seen this kind of recovery before. I want to say thank you to my personal Trainer .
