I am so glad I found Melanie. I was looking for a personal trainer, because after a year and a half from my gastric bypass surgery, I stopped losing weight on my own. My fiance was doing his best to hold me accountable, but it was not a good situation for either of us. I knew I needed someone outside of my personal relationships to hold me accountable to my goals, and my wedding was quickly approaching, and I was just not happy with my size and how I looked in my wedding dress.
I was so excited when I came up on Melanie's site and found she has the physiological knowledge behind the training, as well as an ability to train special needs clients. I suspected I had fibromyalgia as I was having chronic back pain, and this combined with Melanie's 3-month special program, it was a no brainer! My wedding was in 4 months and I wanted a trainer with a true understanding of the conditions of the human body and a well rounded approach.
My doctors were changing medications on me all the time, but Melanie was able to work with the side affects and help me stay motivated. Once we discovered my problem was not fibro and it was mostly stress I was able to stop the new meds, because she helped me strengthen my core and no more back pain!
Not only did I have no more pain, I also was so happy with how I looked in my wedding dress. The seamstress actually thought I might had lost too much weight for her to alter it down enough, but she was able to, and it was beautiful! I was so happy with my body that I even got a second short party dress with a sweetheart neckline and sleeveless. I felt fabulous, looked fabulous, and now I'm addicted!
I know Melanie will get me to my ultimate goals as she keeps showing me I can do things I never thought I could. Even when life gets in the way and I get off-track, she helps me jump right back on the wagon as if I hardly missed a beat!"
