Melissa Russell

Never give up or sell yourself short. The greater your skills are, the more challenges you can face and accomplish.


Melissa`s well rounded knowledge of fitness has been obtained from personal experience with different forms of fitness starting at a young age leading her to become a Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Group Fitness Instructor. Her passion is helping people of all abilities reach their goals surrounding health, fitness, nutrition and life, one step at a time. She has also obtained certifications from Canfitpro, TRX Suspension Training, Tabata Bootcamp and Yogafit Level 1. Her passion for fitness has led her to compete in dozens of Obstacle Course Races.

Self awareness is key to anything you do. I truly believe that any individual can achieve anything with persistence and the right motivation. And that anyone can improve their fitness level, regardless of age or physical condition. Workouts should be functional and compliment your lifestyle to make daily life more enjoyable. I take pride in keeping my training programs fresh and fun, yet challenging so that my clients stay interested and focused, while attaining their health and fitness goals. My motto is quality over quantity, focusing on form to prevent injury and building each individual’s strength and confidence.
