In 2016, Mel moved from California to Alabama with her husband, Josh, who also coaches for CFM. They stepped foot in our gym on their second day in BHM and immediately felt at home. Mel played softball in college, which is where she developed her love for strength and conditioning, and CrossFit filled the void of competitive sports. She found the supportive atmosphere in our box comparable to being on a team, which is something she missed. In addition to coaching on occasion, Mel works full-time as a physical therapist, where she applies many of CrossFit’s principles to the care of her clients.
