Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Melissa has been a fitness professional in the Maryland area for the past 17 years. Teaching a variety of classes including step, hip-hop, strength training, and boot camp, she now focuses the majority of her time at ZenGo, an indoor cycling studio in Bethesda, Maryland. Known for delivering full-body workouts and a "cardio party" on the bikes -- Melissa utilizes her background in dance and theatre, combined with her many years in the fitness industry, to create an unparalleled experience for every class. She prides herself on being able to motivate students to give their best at all times, pushing them to come away better and stronger, both physically and mentally.
When not teaching, Melissa can be found spending time with her husband and three children, ages 11 years, 9 years and 3 months (fyi -- at the time this picture was taken, Melissa's baby was only 2 months old.)
