Melanie is a resilient, determined, natural born leader. She was first introduced to fitness when she was just four years old- watching her father lift weights in their basement gym. She had a very active childhood playing multiple sports, but basketball was her passion. She received a scholarship to play basketball and lacrosse for Kutztown University. Melanie graduated with honors and a double major in marketing and management. After college she started to compete in CrossFit and eventually became a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer. She wanted to challenge herself further and entered in to a bodybuilding competition. After competing she wanted to use her experiences to educate others on how to accomplish their desired fitness goals in a healthy and sustainable way. No matter what it is that she puts her mind too, she will accomplish it. When Melanie is not working out or training clients you can find her designing their website, taking photos and creating all of the AAO marketing content.



"Brett and Melanie are both extremely knowledgeable in both training and nutrition. After sitting down and listening to my goals and current weight loss struggles, they designed a personalized workout and nutrition plan for me. I love their app. The app makes my workouts and nutrition plans easy to access anywhere. It also gives you access to them 24/7. They are always very prompt in answering any questions I have. You can tell they both love sharing their knowledge and helping others reach their goals. I am obsessed with the results I have gotten while working with AAO."
