Hello My name is Melissa Cardone, I am not only a certified Personal Trainer with over a decade of experience in the fitness industry, I am also a lifelong athlete and wellness advocate. I was exposed to exercise from infancy, living in a home with a mother who was a competitive martial artist and long distance runner. I literally grew up on the sidelines at a a martial arts dojo. Being in the presence of such dedicated athletes from such a young age instilled in me the importance of discipline and hard work, as well as having an extended family of fitness minded people that still to this day, 40 years later are part of my life (the meaning of #fitfam)
As I got older I trained successfully in many sports. I competed nationally in judo and rock climbing, making the junior national climbing team at 16 years old. I am an extremely aggressive snowboarder and mountain biker, and more recently an obstacle race competitor and kick boxer, helping to train a Guinness World record athlete to beat the speed bag marathon. During my time as a trainer I have helped numerous people to reach their transformation goals. from winning weight loss competitions to battling their way back from injuries. Being a successful trainer means being adaptable and listening to your clients, remaining positive and encouraging, while pushing them to be their very best. Its truly a blessing for me to watch my clients success and be able to help change their lives in some way. I look forward to helping you on your journey.
