My objective is a position at a health and wellness facility emphasizing physical and mental awareness, which will allow me to continue to develop my skills in personal training. At Functional Fitness since 2005, Melissa has sharpened her skills in actively listening to her clients to understand their needs. She then provides her clients with an initial evaluation, on the spot corrections, specific exercises, and homework to meet their needs. A follow-up range of motion and functional analysis is then performed. She and her client construct a program that can be applied on the road, in the home, and at the gym. Clients goals range from pre-habilitation, pain management, post-rehabilitation, and general fitness improvement
