Melissa has been passionate about sports, fitness and dance from an early age. She played competitive soccer for 12 years and was involved in several other sports. In addition, Melissa has over 10 years of training in Latin dancing, having performed in different cities and instructed classes in Montreal. She has also been teaching Zumba for over 3 years.

Melissa’s journey at Beyond Physical started several years ago as a client and continues today. She is guided and encouraged by her trainers to constantly improve and reach her goals. This inspired her to now become a coach as she understands first-hand how difficult it can be to overcome obstacles, but knows that with the right guidance, positive attitude and hard work, we have the power achieve a healthy mind and body.

Her mission is to encourage others to lead a well-balanced, active and healthy lifestyle. She wants to help people reach their goals, all while enjoying the experience and having fun.

The body achieves what the mind believes!
