Melissa Joy, Trainer

Melissa and her husband Tom and their two very busy kids live in Suwanee.  Melissa grew up a dancer, but was far from an example of a healthy lifestyle.  She never learned what a healthy lifestyle really was until she was an adult.  She struggled with food and body image issues for a good bit of her 20’s, but still found it quite easy to maintain body weight.  After 2 kids and an unsuccessful attempt to establish a better relationship with food she decided to do something about it and joined agym in August 2009.  She wanted to be an example of a healthy lifestyle to her children, and not just preach it; as well as make herself happier and healthier.  She began working out regularly and eating better and was hooked to a new lifestyle. Melissa began competiting in woman’s figure and physique in 2010 and now holds two World Natural Bodybuilding Federation pro cards. 

 

With the push from friends and family she took the plunge and got her personal training certification and started a new career. She loves being a role model and inspiration for others.   Melissa says, “I realized with simple lifestyle changes we can all be happier and healthier.  In my 40’s I am in the best shape of my life and proof that with hard work, dedication and consistency you can achieve the physique you desire at any age.”  Her passion lies in the role and power of nutrition to help meet goals. She is an ISSA certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist.

Allison Johnston, Trainer

I received my personal training certification through NASM in 2011.  I followed up with a certification in RIDE (cycling) through MOSSA shortly after that.  I specialize in pre and post natal exercise. I have three young children who keep me constantly on my toes but I wouldn't have it any other way. They are the light of my life. I have an insatiable passion for all things fitness. I love music, dancing, reading, cooking and baking.

My favorite exercises are hip thrusts, deadlifts and pull-ups.  The most challenging part of fitness, I find for almost anyone, is the nutrition. The direct relationship food has with the work you put into exercise is not always easily understood. I truly enjoy helping people understand this correlation and make necessary changes to compliment their goals. One of my most memorable clients was someone who certainly didn't understand this food relationship. She just had her 2nd child when we started training and she had gained 60 pounds during pregnancy. Through our time together I was able to help her stop thinking of always being on a diet and realize she was simply making lifestyle changes she could deal with when it came to food. She worked hard and lost 50 pounds in 6 months. The sense of accomplishment she felt was unparalleled. These kinds changes and success make my job so very rewarding and exciting to look forward to each day.
