While studying Health and Exercise Science at the University of the Pacific, Melanie was a 4 year starter for the Tigers’ NCAA D1 softball team. It was during her collegiate career that she developed a passion for strength and conditioning.
Following graduation in 2016, she moved from northern California to Birmingham with her boyfriend, now husband. After just one day in the Ham, they found themselves at our gym and Melanie became a member of a CrossFit gym for the first time. She quickly learned that CrossFit filled the void of competitive sports and found the supportive atmosphere in our box comparable to being on a team.
Although their plan was to only stay for the year, Melanie was accepted into UAB’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program as part of the Class of 2020. She aspires to merge her two passions (PT and CrossFit), by rehabbing, training and educating athletes.
