See what other clients have to say and witness some of the amazing results they have achieved! Im so proud of my clients and their achievements. :)
Hey Mel, Not many pix of me from eighteen months ago. hmm My friend Tanya was already a client of Mel, and I could see the care taken of her by Mel and results achieved and decided that I did not need to look and feel unfit, un-flexible, weak and flabby. I didn't like that I was always having to pin my shirts shut across my expanding chest, and that my tummy ... I could go on.
So a couple of days after this picture was taken, mid Feb 2014, I met Mel and said that I would like to repair the damage being idle was causing. I was 52 and had a stiff back, shoulders and neck, as well as an old injury to one knee and weak ankle. I would have to do yoga stretches in bed before I could get up each morning.
I had never done any serious exercise, just a bit of bike riding and I ran the stairs inside the building where I worked. I told Mel that I would probably not like to get fit, and as a joke started PT sessions with her wearing my pj's because I did not own exercise clothes. For what? Well it did not take long to actually feel better.
Mel reviewed my eating habits and attitude to food and I agreed that I should eat more fruit and veg. I wanted to achieve better fitness by slow degrees and Mel agreed this was the best way to ensure I made a lifestyle change. Rushing to lose weight would mean my aging skin would be loose, yuk.
Through 2014 Mel taught me good technique and concentrated on getting my back strong. She has a good laugh when I whinge that some exercises are particularly childish and just like stuff we did as kids. I snuck up on enjoying working out by doing "homework" workouts a couple of times a week from that week's PT session workout set by Mel.
The fitness I have gained over the last 18 months has been through being active, doing enjoyable varied exercise thanks to Mel's guidance and instruction and by eating well. Feb 2014, I weighed 70 kg, and was 94 cm around my belly Apr 67 kg 86 cm Sep 64 kg 86 cm Dec 64 kg 86 cm When Mel went home for last Xmas 2014, Tanya and I decided we needed a fall-back plan so that we did not undo the year's efforts and so I went to a gym for the first time with her to do classes on a 10 trial voucher and haha I joined up and every week I supplement Mel's PT session with 3 or so visits to the gym to do hardcore reformer pilates, yoga and bike. Mar 2015, I weighed 63 kg, and was 83 cm around my belly May 63 kg 82 cm Sep 61 kg 81 cm Nov 62 kg 78 cm Now I have ladylike abs with a tiny pot belly and almost a complete thigh gap. haha But what really matters is that I am feeling flexible and agile, not stiff and in pain from weak muscles not being used right. Thankyou Mel

She took our Queensland sports team for conditioning/speed/agility training a few months ago, and she really kicked us into shape and prepared us for our State Championships. I've also been going to Melissa regularly for 1on1 training and attend her bootcamp sessions, she always mixes it up.

Queensland Camogie Team
I'd just like to convey a few words of thanks to Mel on her training and in particular her group training of the 2013 Queensland state Camogie team. Mel is everything you want in a trainer - fit, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. She also has a tough streak which is very much required to be an athlete and to subsequently train them.
The training was tailored specifically to requirements and perfectly fit for purpose. Mel also drove the girls to challenge new heights which was rewarding for them and beneficial for the individual and the team in the long run.
I'd also like to add that the training was not only physical but mental too in regards to the challenge, desire and motivational tools provided by Mel.
All in all I couldn't recommend FitHealthyYou strongly enough and I hold Mel in very high regard as a person and as a personal trainer.
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "I hired Melissa as my Personal Trainer while i was living in Brighton, QLD. She and I immediately got along and she made me feel so comfortable being in a gym with limited knowledge of what I was doing!
Melissa came up with so many great workouts for me and kept me interested every step of the way! I recommend Melissa for anyone looking to jump back into fitness; or for anyone wanting to further develop their fitness goals with specific targets in mind.
What a great gal, through and through!!!"
