Owner, BASI Pilates Instructor

Melissa has been a Health and Fitness Professional for over 20 years. She founded her own Personal Training Studio in the city of Rancho Cucamonga in 2004 and successfully operated the facility for 17 years. In 2020 she sold her business which led her and her family to Lake Arrowhead in May of 2018 as permanent residents. 

Melissa started as a Personal Trainer in 2001 working at Health Clubs throughout Southern California. 
Her passion for helping others through healthy lifestyle changes and customized exercise programs led her to being an assistant trainer on ABC’s hit T.V. show, Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition in 2011. This experience later inspired Melissa to begin Corporate and Personal Wellness Retreats through her company. These retreats continue today and are focused on encouraging self care & healthy living held at numerous locations in the mountains of Southern California. 

Melissa holds Personal Training Certifications through ACE (American Council on Exercise) beginning in 2004 and maintains specialty qualifications through her continued education in TRX Suspension Training, PNF Stretching and Senior Fitness Programs. 

Melissa is certified in Pilates through the BASI (Body Arts and Science International) Academy. She studied the Pilates method under industry leaders Rael Isacowitz and Lauren Harris as her mentor.

In the fall of 2023 Melissa became the new owner of Lake Arrowhead Pilates.

Lauren successfully sold to Melissa who continues to serve the community.  Together while changing roles they have worked hard to ensure that the legacy started by Lauren will carry on in the beautiful mountains of Lake Arrowhead.
