Level Up your Strength & Speed
What Is The Powerful Mom Project?
You’re ready to commit to a program that includes Strength Training AND Running
If you’ve been running off and on for years and not seeing the results, it’s time you add in strength training to your routine
You want to run faster
Women really like to challenge ourselves, so I know you wouldn’t be sad if you were able to pick up your pace with less effort!
You want to be stronger
One thing we can never get back is time. And as women age, they need strength training more than ever to maintain bone density and keep up with our kids (and perhaps grandkids!)
You are ready to conquer your fear of the kettlebell
That little iron ball with a handle sure does look intimidating. But as a certified instructor for more than six years, with proper training, you will LOVE it. No more sets of 20 dumbbell curls in your future!
You believe me when I say you won’t get “bulky” from strength training
It takes a conserted effort for anyone, especially women, to “bulk” up, to include literally HOURS with the weights and precise nutrtion and nutrition timing. The Powerful Mom Project will make you strong but not the Hulk
Melissa is a full-time working mom of two kids, ages 3 & 5. She knows how hard it is to fit in all the requirements as a mom, wife and employee and that finding time for yourself is hard to do, yet so important. She started strength training as a hobby, and after becoming a mom, knew she wanted other moms to feel the excitement of getting STRONG and that became her new passion, helping you!
She is a certified StrongFirst Girya Level 2 Kettlebell Instructor & Postnatal Fitness Specialist. The kettlebell is such a unique tool that can get strength and conditioning in simultaneously, ultimately saving time. And moms need all the time saving hacks we can get! While the kettlebell is her favorite type of weight, she knows how to modify movements for dumbbells, barbells and bodyweight and specifically for moms.
Melissa looks forward to sharing your strength journey with you.
