Hilton Head Island, SC 29926

I have been in the fitness industry since the 1970's and have seen many fads come and go. What hasn't changed is science and the ability to motivate people.It was also my honor to mentor college students at Manchester Community College in as an adjunct in the Exercise Science Department. I have relocated to beautiful Hilton Head Island with a focus on helping people age actively. Help clients to continue to do the things they love for as long as possible.

    Melanie was my trainer for 10 years until she moved away Currently we are working on skype so i can continue to work out with Mel There are really not enough words to describe Melanie as a fitness trainer When she moved i did not replace her because there was no one that could replace her. She is very professional and truly knows "her stuff" like no other. She has and continues to do everything educationally to keep up with the latest in fitness. She would always come with a planned work out but if i wasnt feeling up to par she would change the workout in seconds without even having to think about it. Melanie is not only the perfect trainer, but a very nice person and we have come to be very good friends over the years. I would highly recommend Melanie for anyone looking for a trainer who can personalize a workout like no other Donna H

    Melanie has made a major impact on my health and wellness. She is extremely professional and compassionate about her work. I look forward to each session with her. I started out with shoulder, back, and flexibility issues and have progressed significantly. She is very flexible regarding scheduling and adapts exercise and workouts to your needs and health conditions. Her facilities are always clean and utilizes her experience and education to provide a top notch and current training experience for her clients. She genuinely cares for her clients and provides first class training.

    Melanie is a consummate professional and the type of personal trainer that is well-suited for my fitness and health goals. With her undergraduate and graduate degrees, certifications, multi-years of successful experience, and an on-going commitment to continuing education, Mel applies her credentials and skill sets to tailor a regimen to the unique needs of each client. Each of our one-on-one sessions begins and ends with specific improvement targets in mind, and I am very satisfied with the results achieved-to-date. I could not be more pleased with my decision to work with Melanie, and I recommend her highly. Terry O.
