Certified Health Professional ACSM EP-C, PN1, CISSN
AthleticTraynorServices is a concept by Melissa Traynor ACSM EP-C, PN1, CISSN that involves bringing you a blend of experiences and tools to help you #fitinfitness and healthy eating anytime, anywhere, no matter your body or perceived abilities. In order to perform in and out of the office, and in doing things you love for a long time, we must make good food, good vibes and movement of all kinds a part of the norm. This can be a challenge due to time, budget constraints, a lack of accountability or not having the right tools. The goal is always to help your level of #MPOWERment so you learn and apply how it is possible to live a holistically healthier life no matter the obstacles in your way. From your home or condo, an equipped studio or gym, to outdoor training and forms of online communications, the aim is to meet you where you are at in terms of your knowledge, skills and abilities with an emphasis towards busy parents and families looking to thrive, not just survive. There is always a way to fit in fitness all while having some fun, but yes, you've gotta earn it ;-) xox

"To state it simply Melissa is AMAZING! Her dedication and passion for fitness is contagious. She truly leads by example first and foremost. Melissa has helped me lose a tremendous amount of weight and gain immense strength. I highly recommend her as a fitness instructor."
"I have been working with Melissa for the past few months. She has not only motivated me but helped me get from 347lbs to my current weight of 252lbs and we are still working towards my goal of losing another 70-80 lbs. She helped me learn to eat the right TYPES of foods."

You are wasting your potential…or are you?!? Far too often people are quick to judge who someone should be and the standard they should hold themselves to. While for many this comes from a heartfelt space, I hate to break it to you, but this expectation you force upon others […]
