My Pictures 

How about this for a before/after? Absolutely incredible. Melissa is a true standout. What is so amazing is that her progress just never slows down and the physical changes have been just as dramatic as the mental ones. Melissa is a tiger!  It's normal to hit plateaus in health and fitness. As the body adapts and becomes better, it becomes harder to keep making gains. Melissa is proof that if you want something bad enough, it's yours and that the journey never ends. It only gets better. Melissa, we are so grateful and proud to have you here. You define inspiration.

    Melissa, you are a POSTER CHILD for everything CrossFit tries to do–but it ain't just CrossFit. Without substantial heart, desire, and unwavering determination, NO program can bring about the astonishing transformation those pictures show. Enjoy your new body, new life, and new attitude, because you have EARNED them!! Congrats!

    Hey Everyone, Thanks so much for the kind words! While I've put in a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and tears to make this "transformation," it's the great trainers and fellow gym members who have made my journey possible. Of the three awesome trainers we have, Dan was the first one I met at Core Fitness. I honestly can't believe he didn't fire me as a client. I was a royal pain in the neck to train! But Dan, Herb and Brandon believed in me when I didn't believe in myself! Thanks, guys! And, to my girl, Sharon….thank you! We've come a long way and I'm so blessed to be on this journey with you! You are a rock star!!! I feel honored to be part of the CFVP family!

    Brian, thanks for creating the forum. I'm looking forward to using it!

  10. Melissa that is AMAZING! I am so in awe of the transformation you have made, I did not know you before and would have no idea you have ever been heavy – you are totally sculpted now I might just have to pin your abs picture up on my fridge to keep me motivated.
