Melissa is the most amazing coach you could ask for! She is super responsive to any questions you have and responds almost immediately. She has an answer for everything! Her kindness, motivation, and experience makes her a true gem! I am on her 12 week bootcamp plan and she provides me with exact recipes to prep for the week and even has videos to correlate with the food prep. She just tells you what to make and eat and you don’t have to count a single macro or calorie. I have failed so many times in the past having to count calories. She does all the math for you! She also provides you with a detailed shopping list for EACH week. You are buying exactly what you need for each week and nothing goes to waste. You hear eating healthy and one of the first things you think about is cost. It’s actually extremely cost efficient because you are buying EXACTLY what you need and stocking your pantry with commonly used items! She also has workout videos that you can stream on your tv and do right at home. All you need is a mat, dumbbells and positive attitude! I canceled my unused gym membership because I don’t even need it anymore! Mel literally gives you every single tool you need to succeed in carrying out a healthier lifestyle. She is the best coach and has the best program I have seen out there. She is very passionate about what she does! For $1 a day, you can earn all the tools you need to loose that weight, keep it off and lead a healthy life.

When I first started looking into MelFit I had no idea if I could do it, I wasn’t confident in myself. I truly didn’t think I would be able to stick to a plan for 12 weeks. But, I did it anyways because I wanted to prove to myself that I COULD make a lifestyle change. Let me tell you, it was absolutely the best decision I have ever made for myself!! I feel healthy , strong and so knowledgeable! This program is absolutely above and beyond! The food is amazing!!! Not one time did i feel hungry or “deprived“. Her workouts are kick a$$! If you put in the effort, you will see amazing results!! Mel and her team genuinely care about your success!! It’s so rare to meet someone who genuinely wants to see you succeed! Mellissa is exactly that person! I have learned sooo much from this 12 weeks, it was absolutely worth every single penny! Doing MelFit has completely changed my life!! Im so proud of myself for what I have accomplished, and so so grateful to have found MelFit. If you are looking for a “ sign “ to start, this is it. Do it! Start this program! You will not regret it!!

I am so glad I found Melissa! I have tried every diet in the book and one of those diets almost killed me! I have lost 11.4 pounds and over 10 inches after completing 6 weeks!! The food is amazing and so flavorful it makes you feel like you’re “cheating”. 
Melissa is only a phone call or text away! She is always there to answer any question and goes over and above. 
I have gone from never exercising to doing it 6 days a week and 4 of those are doubles! Everyone I meet I am telling them about this amazing program. Can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Mel-fit has changed my life! I dont obsess about food anymore, I prep and get on with my life. I have learned so much about nutrition and fuel for my body to do the things I want to do. Melissa is an amazing coach, she gives it to you straight, but is so kind and encouraging. I will be using the Mel-fit way of life from now on.

Melissa's expertise in fitness and nutrition has been instrumental in starting me on a journey to a healthier me. I love her plans (they're not as expensive as you would think), her workouts, and her family friendly recipes are awesome. You don't have to do a plan. Check out her app, free for 7 days and get access to all her workouts and recipes. PM if you want more info on my journey with Mel-fit.

I completed the MelFit 12 week boot camp this past Sunday and I am so completely thrilled with my results and the entire program!!! What an amazing app and program Melissa has created! If you are looking for a diet, you won’t find that here...MelFit is a lifestyle ... one that I know I will be able to sustain and live with for the rest of my life. This is a healthier way of living and I was desperate to start living a healthier life...at 52, I’m not getting any younger and my 2 replaced knees are definitely not going to support the extra pounds that were continuing to increase....quickly.

I lost 23.6 pounds and 17.75 inches in 12 weeks.....HOLY WOW!!! When I started the program I was embarrassed and ashamed - I had lost 100+ pounds 12 years ago and had nearly gained all of it back and here I was, having to do it again. But, I was also DETERMINED! 3 months later I feel empowered, accountable and determined to continue on my weight loss journey.

I was never hungry on this plan. All the recipes were amazing and taking the time to prep meals on Sunday saved my behind many times during the week, when I had days of back to back meetings. I didn’t have to figure out what I was going to eat. It was already made, I just had to heat it up and enjoy! Melissa makes it easy and provides flavorful menus each week, cooking videos, shopping lists, workout videos and all the support you need. You won’t just be eating baked chicken and vegetables each night and there is dessert every night. I also saved money by only shopping for what I would be eating that week. I learned many new recipes that are clean, delicious and have become absolute favorites!!

I love pizza, beer, wine, eating out with friends and my next door neighbor happens to be the best pizza place in N Idaho....I was able to enjoy all those things and still lose 1-2 pounds each week! How AMAZING is that? Oh and did I mention sourdough bread? Yep, ate it every day on a few different weeks!!

I typically worked out 5 days a week for about 30-60 minutes. Mel has her 25 minute workout videos on the app and she modifies for all fitness levels. Some days I changed it up and just walked, danced or lifted weights but I moved 5 days a week.

If you are looking for a great, sustainable program that teaches you how to prepare healthy, clean, fantastic meals, provides you support whenever you need it, a fabulous community of people on the same journey...and RESULTS...MelFit is for you. Melissa will not let you fail and she truly cares!

I started round 2 on Monday and I can’t wait to see my results in 3 months....I know they will be GREAT!!!

First off, I want to start this review by saying that if I can succeed in reaching my goals joining Melfit, ANYBODY CAN!!!! My entire life has consisted of little to no exercise and a diet consisting of only processed foods and fast food. I was totally intimidated at the idea of cooking meals, let alone healthy meals because I had NO IDEA where to even start.

I’ve known Mel for a very long time and I have come to know that she is a woman of integrity, authenticity, and all around just a bad a$$. I also knew that one day she would be the person I would trust when I was ready to make the decision to stop the unhealthy lifestyle I was living.

I just finished the 12 week boot camp and I am so stinking proud of myself because I have never done anything like it before and I never thought I could. Because of Mel’s knowledge, her step by step instruction, her attention to every detail, and encouragement this girl who never thought she could succeed in something like this, JUST DID!!

Joining Melfit and participating in the 12 week boot camp program gave me every tool I needed to not only start this journey of a healthy lifestyle but gave me the confidence and ability to continue it in my life. I’m forever grateful for all I have learned and for the time and heart that Mel has poured into creating Melfit. It truly is a priceless gift she has created and it changes lives.

MAKE the decision.

INVEST the money, cause in the long run I promise it saves you money.

TRUST Mel, she knows what she is doing.

WATCH yourself succeed in ways you never dreamed.

I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

“When Melissa Gave me the 8 week plan, I did not know what to think. Then I realized that I just needed to work on one thing a week. It was very doable! Yes some of the things were hard but I just needed to focus on one thing. I wasn't sure if I could do it, but guess what? I did it! I started this journey so I could get the weight off for a couple hernia repairs. I started on  Oct. 2, 2019 and as of Feb 27th I have lost 43 lbs. I am very Excited!”

I just finished MelFit 12 week boot camp and lost 16 lbs and 20.9in. I have struggled to lose weight since I was in my late 20’s, now in my 40’s and I would just pack on the weight no matter what I did. I was lethargic all the time and didn’t feel like doing much, I would try healthy foods but would buy brands or recipes that didn’t taste good so it would turn me off and I also have 3 kids who are picky eaters.

Melfit gave me the tools to eat healthy, the right products to buy, the recipes to make and the workout videos to do. I now have more energy, my acne is gone and I have the tools to be confident in my future food choices not just to be healthy but to lose the remainder of the weight I have to lose and to maintain it.

I love Melfit

Starting MelFit with Melissa was life changing for me. Seeing all these people talk about their success stories only got me more motivated to make a change in myself. My eye opening moment was seeing my mom lose weight right before my eyes. If she can do it for herself, I need to do it for myself. In 2020 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis at age 22. I came to MelFit even more. I'm the pickiest eater ever and have several food allergies. Even through all of that I found food on MelFit that I enjoyed and helped my arthritis. If you want a change in your life even if you're a little scared like I was, MelFit is your answer.

I started this program overweight and exhausted. I was terrified but I was so ready and eager for a change that I took the plunge into this amazing lifestyle. Coach Mel has opened a whole new world for me and I am beyond grateful. I am so ready to continue on this journey of creating a new life for my family and myself. If you’re someone who is ready to start over and become the best version of yourself, I highly recommend working with Coach Mel. She has designed this program to cater to everyone and you’ll never feel like something is missing. She will be there with you every step of the way. Sometimes the hardest part of staying on a healthy track is having the support and feeling like you’re alone. I promise, you will never feel alone doing this. Just a few short weeks to change your life forever is so worth it and there’s no better person to help you achieve your goals than Coach Mel.

Mel has changed me for life. I completed the 12 week challenge and lost 19 pounds and 12+inches. I feel great and got some of my confidence back. Mel has taught me so many things, the biggest is having a healthy relationship with food. I will forever continue this lifestyle. And I am currently working with Mel, training for my first full marathon. I've got to stick with the BEST!!! #melfitarmy

My name is Melanie Dominguez. I am 46 years old and have struggled with my weight since I was 14. Here is my story…….

Age 14:
I grew up very active along with my Twin sister Melissa. We lived on 100 acres up the North Fork of the Coeur’Alene river and ran around non stop. After we turned 14 we moved to town and our activity levels slowed. I remember weighing under 100 pounds.

Age 15:
At age 15 I went on a starvation diet and I would eat only a bagel and a bowl of cereal all day. I didn’t eat vegetables and I remember one Thanksgiving not eating at all. This continued until I was 24 years old. I was 140 pounds at almost 5’ 3.”

Age 25:
At age 25 I discovered the Atkins diet and quickly lost 30 pounds. In turn I had no energy from low carbs an ate very few veggies. I didn’t exercise much and had no muscle tone.

Age 31-32:
I joined a gym and started doing group fitness classes such as weights, spinning, kickboxing, and step aerobics. I was doing up to 2 classes a day, and still eating low carb. I didn’t have a lot of energy, but I pushed through anyway. I did an 8 week challenge and lost 20 pounds. After I finished the challenge I gained it all back and then some. They never really tell you what to do AFTER!!! How do I lose weight and KEEP it off?

Age 33:
I started jogging 3 miles every day and lost a little weight, but I still had a big belly. I was still trying low carb.

Age 34-44:
I lost and gained 30 pounds over the next 10 years. I would work out and eat well and then I wouldn’t exercise at all and had no regard for my nutrition. My daughter joined the Navy when I was 38 and I pacified my sadness with alcohol and food, which only made things worse. My weight was getting out of control peaking at 160. To top it off I started having hormonal imbalances. I found a great Dr. and I am now feeling great. Let me warn you, things change when you pass age 40.

Age 44-46:
I started working out 5-6 days a week and started to really focusing on my Nutrition. I gradually lost almost 40 pounds, built muscle, and even have a six pack, which I never thought was possible after having a baby. I eat a variety of foods now including carbs and treats without feeling guilty. It took me 30 years to get to the point where I am now. I have so much energy and wake up at 3:15 A.M. and can’t wait to start my day with a workout. I have watched my Twin sister maintain her weight for over 20 years now and I always knew I could do the same. Melissa has taught me that starvation, low carb diets, and overexercising are not the answer. She has helped educate me and taught me about the importance of making health and fitness a lifestyle. Melifit is a LIFESTYLE! Melissa is teaching you how we live our lives. We enjoy healthy desserts and even have free days that include alcohol. I am excited for what my future holds and I am in the best shape of my life at age 46! I can do anything I set my mind to. I can hike to the top of any mountain, actually I can NOW run it! Just because it takes you a while to reach your goals, doesn’t mean you can’t get there. Never give up! Today I have lost 21% body fat! My body fat is 15% , maybe a fitness competition is in my future? I was headed to a dark place and I never want to go there again. I am stronger than I have every been in my life. I now know I will never gain this weight back again and that is why I am sharing my story with you. I hope my story inspires you and gives you hope. Please feel free to comment below or reach out.

The scale can lie to you! 😱

I wanted to share a little more about the story of what's happened in the last five weeks to get ready for Mrs. Idaho (4️⃣ days away!). 

🙌 Coach Mel Melfitcoaching helped to bring it home so I can feel my best on stage. 
I'm down 2% body fat in 5 weeks (~4 pounds of body fat)
And I gained 1.6 pounds of muscle. This transformation is incredible in such a short time!!

Her nutritional coaching is phenomenal, and so is she, for that matter. I haven't been hungry once! In fact, I wasn't eating enough before (crazy misconception). 🫐🍊🥥

The only additional exercise I added was making sure I got in 10k steps. 
Otherwise, it was my usual fantastic weekly weight training at Exercise Institute

💥 Why does the scale lie?? We get so hung up on a number on the scale. And there is so much more to body composition. Since October, I am down 6.5 percent body fat. And guess how much weight I lost?? 
Let's hear it. 👇👇👇

This is also a great reminder that we need accountability for our goals. And it's ok to seek help when we need it. Whether it's a personal or business or lifestyle or whatever kind of goal, having support and coach is so important! ❤️

I see the most significant difference in this side shot, especially in my arms, waist, and face. 

I appreciate you and all your incredible support!!!

What Are People Saying About Melfit?

Melfit coaching successfully addresses both sides of the adage, "Is it an educational problem or an attitude issue?" From an educational perspective, Melissa provides valuable knowledge to identify the proper balance of protein, carbohydrate, and fat in

your diet, to most effectively meet the daily caloric plan that works for you. She also identifies creative hacks and recipes that are essential to healthy eating. As a "foodie" I enjoy discovering new Melfit recipes that are delicious and keep me satiated.

 

From an attitude perspective, Melissa provides a new perspective on fitness. She encourages realistic expectations and her 25-minute workout routines easily fit into any schedule. Her fun Melfit 25 workouts promote strength, balance, and flexibility. My attitude has done a 180-degree flip from "my fitness goals are unattainable" to "I now have the tools and motivation to make the positive changes in my life that will allow me

to meet my fitness goals".

Melissa's knowledge and support helped me to lose over 20 pounds in a year, losing body fat and gaining muscle. The Melfit coaching program is now an integral component of my lifestyle. I look forward to her continued motivation, inspiration, and support.

After having my second baby I had 20 stubborn pounds to lose and I knew I needed some help. I’m so glad I found the MelFit 12 week bootcamp. It is exactly what this busy Momma needed. Coach Mel makes it sooo easy! She did all the work and all I had to do was follow the steps laid out for me.  She even helped modify the program to my specific needs (nursing Mom). In the 12 weeks I lost 21 lbs and over 13 inches. Not only did my body transform but I gained new found energy, clearer skin, and  foundational principles for leading a healthful life. This program has not only impacted my life but the life of my entire family! If this busy working Mom and wife can do it, you can too! You won’t regret it! Thanks Coach Mel for a great fool proof program!

I just finished MelFit 12 week Bootcamp & feel better than I have in a long time! I lost 10 lbs & 14 inches & feel great from eating mostly Whole Foods for the past few months. Her recipes taste amazing & are so easy to meal prep each week. Her workouts are fun & easy to follow. I actually look forward to exercising now because I enjoy her format so much. Mel is so supportive & encouraging & goes above & beyond for her clients to make sure they see success. 💓

I just completed Melfit 12 week Boot Camp. What an AMAZING experience I’ve had plus lost 13.5 lbs and 15.25 inches!!!!

When I started this plan I was unhealthy, 50 pounds overweight, had no energy, lacking self esteem, chronic joint pain, whole body inflammation, and fighting depression.

Because I only eat plant based foods and have several food allergies it was challenging for Melissa an I but she really stepped up to the plate to provide guidance and understanding for plant based nutrition.

The workout videos were challenging but she gives you several modifications that fits any level. I started out lifting only soup cans then moved on to 15 pound weights by the end of the 12 weeks.

Thanks to Melissa and Melfit , I am on the right path for a healthy and fit lifestyle. Without her help I’m not sure that I would have made it this far on my own. This is a lifestyle that I will continue on for the rest of my life.

Thanks Melissa for everything!!

I just finished MelFit’s 12 week boot camp. I lost over 10lbs and around 10 inches! I have tried many diets and work out programs, as well as, having and using a gym membership over the years. I was always able to lose a few pounds, but I was never able to consistently lose weight and reach my goal weight. With the MelFit program I was able to consistently lose weight every week! I loved the meals and had no problem staying consistent. I never once felt like I couldn’t do this! Melissa is the best coach around! She is always there for you and very supportive! Her advice was always spot on and worked! Having the MelFit 12 week food plan was a huge part of my success as well! Knowing what I was making every week and knowing it was healthy was key! I was never hungry and I never had cravings! I loved learning to cook healthy food that tastes amazing. The Melfit workouts are great! I have muscles again and a much stronger core! Melissa has so many workouts to choose from. I tend to get bored with similar/routine workouts. The MelFit workouts kept me challenged and I loved doing a different workout each time! I now look in the mirror and I am proud of the person I see thanks to MelFit! I could go on and on...MelFit is simply the best weight loss & workout program out there!! I’m a lifer!! Melissa is truly one of my heroes!

Hey guys! 
I’m going to try to make this short, but I have so much to say! 
After having my children I struggled very hard to lose weight. I was active in the gym. In fact, I was going to two different types of gyms at the same time! I had suffered a medical emergency that put me on meds, and with that came weight gain that just wouldn’t go away. I was so defeated and down right angry. I mentally gave up. 
My aunt had done Mel’s 12 Week Bootcamp and encouraged me to try. I took the plunge and I am so beyond thankful that I did! 
The food? DELISH. The workouts? AMAZING! There’s just something so awesome about being able to workout in your own environment, especially as a parent. There is no excuse for failure! Mel has everything you need to start and continue your journey to healthy living, and she makes it as painless and easy as possible. From the shopping lists she’s put together, the yummy meals she’s carefully created, the step by step prep videos, the workouts she’s thought through piece to piece, live Facebook videos, to being here for you to ask any and all questions and to pump you up when you need it. She sets you up 100% for success. 
Mel changed my life, no exaggeration there. 
I’m super excited for you to start your journey, you’ve got this!

Last week I finished the MelFit 12 week Bootcamp! I would 100% recommend this to anyone who is looking to lose weight or learn a healthier lifestyle. Melissa makes it so easy, she does all the hard work of figuring out what to eat and what workouts to do. For 12 weeks you get all your meals planned for 6 out of 7 days. You will NOT be hungry, and you will learn how to properly substitute to make your favorite meals. I lost 19 inches and 16.5 lbs without having to track my calories or deprive myself.

My first week after finishing her program I lost an additional 2 lbs, just by using what I learned throughout the Bootcamp! This was the jumpstart I needed to get myself back into shape! This plan is not a “diet” and what you learn from it you will be able to take with you forever and implement into your life everyday! I am so grateful for the experience, and I know I wouldn’t be this successful without the support and coaching of Melissa and Talia! I plan to continue to take what I learned and crush my goals!

While following the MelFit program I was able to eat delicious food, at times, more than I could eat. Be held accountable with weakly weigh-in's and sweaty selfies. Mel is always there for you if you have a question or need a little more motivation. I highly recommend this program. It was fun, delicious and kept me going. Thanks Mel!!!

I have been an avid Runner and Biker for the last 10 years, as age has crept up on me I noticed so did the weight gain. I tried various programs with zero results. I meet Melissa over 4 years ago and did training in her studio, I respect her so I felt let’s give this 12 week boot camp a try. I have loved the journey. This Boot camp is outlined to perfection, from the workouts to the meal plans and constant support. Melfit makes this fun. I can’t wait to do the 6 week shred and see continued success . Knowledge is power. Thank you Melfit

I have worked out most of my life regularly. I was a gymnast as a kid and so I’ve always been muscular, which in my eyes translated into bulky, not thin by any means. I have tried every diet imaginable to get myself “skinny” with a magic number in the scale that would make me feel good about myself when I reached it. I’ve been super diligent with different gym “weight loss challenges” only to gain the weight back and not be consistent with nutrition when the challenge was over.

Fast forward to 12 weeks ago. I have been following the MelFit Facebook page for over a year and decided it was time to do this once and for all! I had seen Mels sister, Melanie, at the gym and her transition was amazing! So after a year of watching, I joined! My goal was to lose 20 lbs in 12 weeks. Much to my surprise the transformation along with the forever knowledge of fueling my body was way better than any fictitious number on the scale, I had in mind. But the hand holding, support, care and individualized counsel Mel gives you is worth its weight in gold!! She is absolutely amazing and worth more than what you pay for! Thank you forever Mel! Can’t wait to start the 6 week shred!!

PS- the meals are delicious, filling, guilt free and decadent. You’re not missing out or starving yourself at all!! Meal prep for all in this house!

Melissa is an amazing coach!! She has made this well thought out plan.. there’s nothing to figure out. It’s all done for you! And the results are real!! The app is easy to use! Everything right at your fingertips! Consistency is key!! Coach Mel is always there for you!! I would 100% recommend this boot camp to anyone!!
