A product of vision and passion

Founding Gateway to Health & Performance (GTHP) has been a lifetime journey. Since high school, Melanie Dean’s goal has always been excellence. Success as an athlete was only the beginning. The harder she trained, worked and studied, the more she came to believe that every individual deserved the opportunity to achieve health and fitness goals safely and efficiently.

Her vision was to start a company that truly redefined fitness. She began taking steps to achieve that goal by training high school and college athletes, volunteering and interning in physical and sports therapy, working in cardiac rehabilitation programs and earning her masters degree in Exercise Physiology.

Deeply involved in fitness her entire life, Melanie was prepared to realize her passion. Gateway to Health & Performance was born.
