Fitness is a love that has been in Melissa’s life for several years, but which has, until now, remained not so recognised as part of who she is. Yet, it certainly remains a significant role in the multifaceted persona of VANiLLA and has significantly contributed to her all-round success to date. Melissa admits that, growing up a tomboy, the idea of being active came naturally to her, but it wasn’t until she was 17 and started weight training, that she really fell in love with fitness. When she suffered a knee injury during her weight training as a result of practicing squats incorrectly, Melissa decided to take her love more seriously and become more involved in studying fitness.
Her studies at the International Sport and Science Association over the years have since seen her certified in several core areas of fitness such as nutrition, personal training, youth fitness, sports and conditioning and other areas. Moreover, her love of fitness has even led to her winning several prizes such as GABBF’s Miss Body Fitness Novice 2006 and Miss Body Fitness Intermediate 2007. Melissa also serves a personal trainer and teaches Zumba, Cardio Combat and Strength and Resistance training. She attests that the most gratifying thing about her fitness life, is advising persons on a healthy lifestyle and seeing them reap the results that they have longed for.
