Melanie has been playing competitive sports as long as she can remember, but was involved in track and soccer her entire life. She played D1 soccer at GW and studied Exercise Science, graduating in 2014. Now, Melanie teaches PE at Horace Mann Elementary and it’s basically like coaching adults – no one listens, but every does what they want to do :). She started CrossFit in 2016 and immediately loved the atmosphere & being surrounded by people who are so like-minded to you.
Aside from a social outlet, CrossFit has grown into a competitive outlet. Melanie realizes though that the driving force in training is about self improvement whether you aspire to compete or just become fitter! She is excited about sharing and assisting other’s in their journey of self improvement and fitness by being part of the CF Balance coaching team!
