Cross Training Instructor

My name is Melody Ress and I have been a certified personal trainer and strength specialist for 6+ years. I received my certification through NSCA as a Strength and Conditioning specialist in 2016. Throughout my time as a trainer, I participated as a Cross Training athlete learning from gyms while stationed in Wyoming, Germany, Ohio, and now Georgia. In 2019, I decided to take my love for Cross Training to a new level and I became Cross Training certified to train and coach. Additionally, I recently graduated with my Masters of Exercise Science at Concordia University - St. Paul. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, who is active duty Air Force, and my 1 year old son. My hobbies include rugby and playing the bass guitar.
