All About Me! 



My name is Melissa and I am a fitness  director for Navy Fitness and also teach main different types of group fitness classes such as indoor cycling, TRX, water aerobics and muscle max formats.  I currently have certifications in the follow areas of fitness: NASM CPT and CES, AFAA Group Fitness, Level 3 TRX, Schwinnn Cycling, USAW Olympic Lifting and EXOS NOFFS and SES. Also I hold a BS and MS in Health Promotions and Exercise Science.  I love to teach cycling and always get compliments from my students on my cycling playlists, so I decided to start a blog to share my ideas.

  1. Hi no I’m not I just been a really bad blogger and been super busy with my full-time job. I’m planning to post a whole bunch of rides from the summer during my week long vacation from woke. I hope that you’ll still follow and make sure follow me on Spotify where I have all my playlist!


    • Thanks for getting back to me! Can you please (briefly) share how you make your playlists? I’ve been a les mills instructor for years so I’ve always been given music and choreography. Now I am putting together playlists for regular spin classes that happen to be the time slots where all the triathletes go to. I’m struggling on finding a way to organize and come up with my classes that won’t take me forever bc I have a son and train on my own and own/run a business. This group wants to be challenged and I’m sure for the winter they want to build their base miles but in an hour class twice a week I was thinking tabata and interval or tempo rides rather than even attempt “endurance” bc an hour isn’t long enough anyway and I figure they can get long rides on the weekends. Do you pick a theme for the ride then find songs that fit? Do you write out moves to all the different changes in the song or do you generally just use the chorus? I subbed for the class last week and I used the iClass builder app. It’s very helpful but tedious to put everything into it. Thanks so much and sorry if I have too many questions!

  2. Could you tell me how long your TRX classes are? The 15 min block for AMRAP seem so long but I have never experimented with this format before! So glad I found your page and hope you keep posting!
