Biography

As someone who grew up never considering herself athletic or the “sport” type, Melissa has added a myriad of accomplishments and experience to just that.  After the birth of her second son, Henry, she decided that adding fitness and exercise higher on the priority list had to be mandatory for her own life. Looking for something that worked, got her into great shape, and could help her become a stronger and more capable Mother, she decided to try our CrossFit in August of 2012. Since then, she has never looked back.  Even as a Registered Dietitian  with a degree from Auburn University and Masters from University of Alabama with a Dietetic Internship from UAB, she always felt as though she was missing the other 50% of the equation.  Since beginning CrossFit Trussville, taking time to learn what it takes to fuel like an athlete, and introducing her own principles in nutrition, she has not only dropped an impressive amount of weight, but also built a deal of lean muscle.  Her heart is in changing lives by helping realize how important nutrition is to health and just how much of a component it is to fitness. Her motivation is other peoples success and she gets excited every time the light bulb goes off for someone in realizing their own potential.  If you don’t see her at the gym, you can expect her to be spending quality time with her two boys Will and Henry (13 and 8 respectively) and her husband Chris.
