Spurred on by her peers to share fitness tips when she successfully lost enough fats to spark a transformation journey, Melissa decided to enter the fitness industry and became certified as a Personal Trainer through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). It was then when she also realised that nutrition was very important in maintaining fat loss and gaining muscle mass. Thus, she enrolled into the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), a school that teaches beyond nutrition and dives deep into holistic health theories and concepts.
Since graduating from IIN, Melissa has set up her own coaching business at NourishMel, where she is passionate to empower women in their stubborn weight loss journeys. She specifically helps women aged 25 to 35 with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) lose stubborn weight through her PCOS Signature Programme. She has redefined the stages of the programme to cover factors that affect weight loss which are underrated and mostly forgotten – for example, enhancing detoxification by removal of toxins from the home environment. Through her personal experience with PCOS, Melissa has the knowledge and is now able to help women just like her achieve their weight loss goals with the need for any kind of medication.
