Melissa Hatton

I have been a personal trainer for many years now. I thoroughly enjoy helping others reach their fitness goals and live a healthy lifestyle. In addition to working as a personal trainer, I teach as an adjunct instructor for California University of PA in the Exercise Science and Sport Studies department. I am also a Master Instructor for NASM, teaching the OPT Model content to those those individuals preparing to sit for the Certified Personal Trainer certification exam. This position with NASM has allowed me to also become a Sharecare expert. If you are unfamiliar with Sharecare, it is an online Q&A forum where anyone can post a health and fitness related question to be answered by a member of the panel.
In addition to training others, I enjoy yoga, resistance training, HIIT workouts, and participating in a variety of race distances. I also like to swim, hike, read, and travel (domestic and international).
I am also willing to perform virtual training with you if you aren't in my area.
Thanks for visiting my page!
