Co-Founder and Coach for Potential Energy Training & Nutrition www.potentialenergytraining.com Melissa has an extensive career in cycling and athletics. Starting in 2004, Melissa switched her focus from running to cycling and fell in love with the sport. Over the years, the bicycle has taken her all over the world from touring Italy, racing across Europe and the US as a professional athlete (with the US development team and riding for Team Kenda), to exploring the trails across Arizona and even South Africa! Melissa’s career has yielded the opportunity to compete with all of the top world-class riders in road, cyclocross, and mountain biking! Recent accomplishments include finishing 1st in her age category for the Leadville Trail 100 in 2014, and competing in and finishing the world’s most grueling mountain bike stage race, the Absa Cape Epic as the only US women’s duo! Melissa’s past work experience has included working as a nursing assistant in nursing homes and home health settings, marketing director, bike shop retail, and a cycling coach. Other passions Melissa has include: hiking, camping, painting, dirt biking, cooking, spending time with her husband, and playing with her dogs and cat.   Melissa has an incredible desire to help other people reach their full potential and bring the passion of having a healthy lifestyle into their lives. Her specialty is working with businessmen, moms/dads with hectic schedules, and individuals who are just taking their first steps to starting a new fitness program. She comes from a family of 7 kids so has a big understanding of when ‘life happens’ and how to make the most of limited time to achieve those adventurous goals and of course, have fun during the process!
