Who We Are


Melissa Anderson


Certified Personal Trainer

Melissa has been athletic her entire life, although it wasn’t until she became a mother of twin boys that she realized she needed to get serious about her health and fitness. Now, Melissa has an AFAA Certification in Personal Training and Group Fitness, as well as certified in Yogafit and Pilates.

She began just like you: by taking group classes at a gym. She discovered she not only enjoyed the exercise, but that she had a gift for motivating others to want to improve their own healthy living habits. Move Train Thrive is the result of years of training, dreaming, and developing a fitness philosophy that encompasses all ages, fitness levels, and goals.
