Melissa is a certified IM=X Pilates Reformer and Mat instructor, getting her comprehension and practical certification in NYC in 2007. She has taught at a few studios in Indy, allowing her to learn under some amazing master trainers, as well as learning other methods and techniques along the way. Over the years Melissa has also been certified in Barre, with Physique57, allowing her to use her pilates background, and find deeper ways to lengthen and lean your muscles. Physique57 is based out of NYC, and Melissa was thrilled to learn they were opening a studio here in Carmel’s Midtown Plaza! Melissa is also certified in Cycle, with Cycle by Color, and Megaformer with [solidcore]. Melissa enjoys bringing fun little nuggets of what she has learned over the years, and prides herself on keeping her classes fresh and FUN!!
Her style is athletic, faster paced, and often uses some sort of prop. You will get your heart rate up and get a good sweat going! Melissa loves to work more than one thing at a time- keeping your mind active and confusing your muscles. Anything you do to keep yourself active will pair well with pilates- so you really can’t go wrong! If your movement is taking your dog for a walk- great! If you can get to a class and get a good strength and cardio boost- great! Allow yourself grace for what you can do today, don’t beat yourself up and think you need to be working out hours a day to see results.
Set goals that are realistic and give your instructors the opportunity to help you achieve those! See you in the studio soon!
