I am a mother of two beautiful girls and one handsome little boy. I have been active my whole life and knew one day I would make a place for myself in the fitness industry. I have worked in the field for 9 years and have always loved helping others achieve their wellness goals by motivating my clients and teaching them proper tools needed on their path to success. I can't express enough the feeling I get knowing I helped instill a little bit of confidence back in someone's life. My mission is to help establish an active routine in someone's life, motivate, and be there to push you to go that extra mile, finish that last set and show you what you CAN do. Their is no greater reward than being able to be a part of someones fight for a better life. I am lucky to say I have had the pleasure of meeting and training some amazing people. Their drive to reach their goals has been an inspiration to me. I love what I do!!

    Wonderful Trainer! Missy inspires me to work harder to accomplish my goal without making me feel insignificant because I am not at the fitness level of other people. I look forward to my person training sessions with her. She is always sunny and very motivating. I highly recommend her as a personal trainer. I have lost inches, pounds, and gained muscle. I feel stronger and on my way to a healthier me!

    Missy Ledwell exhibits a sincerely enthusiastic and dedicated attitude in performing her work as a fitness trainer. Missy commits to developing an approach that targets the specific needs of the individual. I have rarely seen an instructor who exhibits such personal care and genuine concern in helping clients achieve their fitness goals. Missy is fun, vivacious, and her positive attitude is absolutely contagious!! She is an awesome fitness coach both in and out of the water.

    I have been attending Missy's Water Works class since the beginning of the year. I have thoroughly enjoyed the classes. Not only are they challenging but she makes them fun & enjoyable. I have made many unsuccessful attempts to exercise, etc on my own but I appreciate the personal attention, support & dedication she shows in both personal training & in class. I have alos been participating in the Fitness Challenge at Gold's Gym since February and she has been very supportive and challenged me to work hard and do my best both in and out of class. A lot of people always think Water Works class is for 'old people' LOL....Nope they are 100% incorrect! It is for those of all ages. I have benefited in many ways with Missy's support as well as those in class!!!!

    I do water works and personal training with missy. And let me just say I started working out with my dad in mid feburary and then he quit on me. If it weren't for the encouragement, hardwork, and dedication She puts towards every workout session we do I probably would not be at the gym still. On days where I don't want to give 100% she pushes and encourages me to finish strong and to give it my all. Not only that but she's just a great person to talk to when, if your like me, you don't want to go to your parents when your upset or troubled. She's a great trainer and person!!
