"I always knew that a healthy outside started from having a healthy inside, but it was not until I met Melissa that I learned exactly what this actually meant. I am a high school senior now preparing to apply for college, but when I started the 8-week program with Melissa, I was just a naive Junior living with ignorance towards how I treat my body.
Melissa helped me realize that there is more to life than just mechanically doing what we are told to do (in my case, neglecting sleep to get good grades). She opened a door to a brighter way of life for me by teaching me specific habits and ensuring that I would never fall back from them. These habits completely altered the way I saw my world and I was just happier with myself in general.
In my case, weight was less of a problem than overall physical and mental well-being, but joining the program immediately blew away all my insecurities in the blink of an eye (and I did end up losing ten pounds as a bonus!). She coached me on both how to fix my eating and exercise habits down to the smallest details as well as how to deal with my load of school work and extracurriculars.
The overall experience was magnificent and the habits have truly stuck with me! I loved Melissa’s holistic and comfortable approach so much that it kept pushing me to follow her steps no matter what temptations came knocking at my door. I will always be thankful for the many golden advices she gave me and will enjoy my greatly enlightened college life in the upcoming years thanks to this experience!
