Meet Melanie. A wine-drinking Aussie who was forced to come to the states and take a job where she is required to eat cake samples all day. Tough life. Melanie joined us in December of 2015 after being sucked in by our annual Halloween party. We told her we normally kept that much alcohol in the gym. Bait and switch.
Something you may not know about Melanie is that last year she had a neck injury which prevented her from going overhead with any significant weight. Because of that we have helped her modify around any movements that she is unable to do, as she was determined to keep up her activity to not lose the momentum and progress she has built. I asked her if she was going to stick with us when she found out, and she said, “Yes! My arms are just starting to look good!” Something Mel is very proud of is how far she has come in her push-up form, and this is mainly work that has been done all before or after class! We are excited for how far Melanie has come, and look forward to seeing the continued progress … now on to clapping push-ups!
