3 years ago, Mel was unhappy, unhealthy and unfulfilled. She is a wife and a mum of two young children, therefore a role model but a few years ago, she wasn’t a very good one. She lacked energy, enthusiasm, and confidence. She was avoiding social occasions. She overate, didn’t exercise and created an unhealthy environment for her family with her depressive, self-pity attitude (her words). She was not a happy person and this was projected in her daily life.


Through a series of events (most of them unfortunate), Mel started to claim her life back and change her direction.


Today she has transformed her body, but more importantly her life and her mind. She is healthy, happy (most of the time), owns a fitness studio and is a personal trainer, and acts as a mentor to young girls teaching them to love what their bodies can do, rather than what they look like.


Mel and I chat through this transformation here, some of the practical aspects of her change, what she hopes to achieve, and what she still struggles with.
