Mel is a fantastic trainer! She keeps the yoga practice fun and interesting while a the same time working out the kinks!

Loralie and Mike W. (pain release and yoga)

We have worked with Mel for several years both as a restorative therapeutic exercise professional and a yoga instructor . She is extremely knowledgeable and inspirational. Her smile and laughter are contagious and encouragement to do just a few more comes with ease. She is thoughtful and caring with her approach through her lessons and works hard with all age groups. I would highly recommend Mel to any of my friends or family.

Dawn B. (knee replacement and arthritis)

I have attended Melanie Morrissette’s class of Strength & Flexibility for many years. As a person with arthritis in all joints these classes have been very beneficial. As a women of seventy-eight years of age who has had two knee replacements within the past couple years I have progressed greatly because of attending these classes and have been capable to do nearly all exercise and if they are too painful she has always given me an alternative. I look forward to the beginning of the next session.

Lucie B. from Quebec

Mel is a dynamic person and her energy is very motivating for my personal training. She finds ways to adapt exercises for my arthritis and I have less pain at my shoulders, knees and hips. I enjoy our laughers on every day of our trainings. I also enjoy her calmness when I do chair yoga and Pilates. I have purchased many videos from Mel such as Chair Yoga, Active for Life, Ski Conditioning and I love them all! You are so beautiful Mel! Thank you

I find her classes very beneficial as we age. She knows the right kind of exercises we need. I have attended her classes and will be glad when they will start again:)

Debbie S. with severe osteoporosis

Mel is my personal trainer. She has helped me to develop a safe varied program specific to my needs. I have severe osteoporosis and have had three compression fractures over the past two years. Mel has guided me through specific tailored varied exercises from mat to bands to balls to yoga free weights machines you name it, teaching me the do’s and don’t of what my osteo will allow me to safely do. She watches and corrects my every move even doing videos on my phone so I can refer to them when needed. I was so nervous to even think about a personal trainer but honestly this is one if the best things I have ever done for myself and with her expert guidance I am confident I will be stronger, my balance has been greatly improved and I will remain fracture free for years to come. She is one of the kindness and most genuine people I have ever met. We have so many laughs she is a delight to be around. Thanks Mel you have made such impact on my health and how I view fitness you have no idea.
