Rebecca's 6 Month 60 lb. Success Story!
Rebecca is a true inspiration that with the proper exercise, nutrition, coaching and pushing through the hard times = SUCCESS. It’s been such a privilege and a blessing for me to be part of her transformation process.
Check out these amazing 6 month results! She CRUSHED her NEXT STEPS goals and will continue with her healthy living from here on out.
“I feel absolutely wonderful! I am so grateful for Melissa! She helped me to lose 60 pounds, 44 total body inches in 6 months through proper nutrition and exercise.” Here are a few ways the Feel Better Fitness Steps® has helped me.
Nutrition: Melissa’s Nutrition Steps® was a key ingredient to my success! It was so important for me to change my eating habits for good, and Melissa provided me with an easy and effective way to do that!
Coaching: I thank the Lord for leading me to Melissa. Her positive perspective helped me through very difficult times, and she always had workable ideas for me when I got stuck. Most importantly, Melissa always reminded me to keep my focus on the important things and not to let myself get distracted by small set-backs.
Exercise: Melissa’s exercise program was exactly what I needed to wade back into physical fitness! She taught me the basics and proper form first, and then added challenges at a perfect pace, as I became ready for each next step. She also tailored my exercises to my needs when I had major surgery in the beginning of the program.
Progress: I started with counter push ups and now can do 20 modified floor push-ups, from elbow plank bench level to full floor plank holding for over a minute, standing one leg balance from to over 2 minutes on each leg! I am more aligned and balanced.
I am stronger, my posture, balance, and mobility is so much better. I also feel so much better not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well!
Coach Melissa's Story
In 2000, I was feeling tired and overweight. I desired to be a healthy, strong wife and mother. I hired a trainer to learn how to exercise and eat healthy. My trainer designed a program of strength, core, cardio along with a low glycemic index diet. I lost over 20 lbs. and maintain it to this day. This experience inspired me to become a fitness professional to help others live a healthier lifestyle.

Jeans Testimony: “I was diagnosed in December with early onset Parkinson’s disease. I was weak, stooped over, not walking properly, no balance whatsoever. I cannot believe that in such a short time this program corrected all of my problems and I feel so much better than I did before. My core strength is better, balance is much improved, and the feeling of well-being is unbelievable. I really feel this program will keep me going for a long time!”
Melissa has changed my life in a number of ways and I cannot possibly limit it to a paragraph, but here goes a try. My body was in shambles when I met you. Three years post Lupus diagnosis and I was in absolute confusion in how to keep my body working properly.
I started personal training with Melissa and within a week, the changes in my diet made my body feeling stronger than it had been in months! Also, she guided me from the basic exercises, and the basics was all I thought I was capable of. Doing push-ups, running on the treadmill, lifting heavier weights, I thought that was all completely impossible. But she made my body a weapon against Lupus, not a participant.
Slowly, I was able to bend without falling over, walk a mile without my joints swelling, run around the gym in circles with weights and doing real push-ups
Enjoying Life Again
I traveled to NYC like I dreamed and walked from my Fifth Ave apt. all the way to Central Park. I did not take one taxi while there. Also, she provided exercises to keep me fit while I was away. My body became the tool, the weight lift, the 5’3 cardio machine!
To say I owe Melissa a thank you is quite the understatement. Gratitude. Endless Gratitude. I am finally in control of my body and my health.
With Love, Bianca Vinas
