Change The Way You Train
Train outside the "box"
Train for your career
Melissa Woolsey is by far the best personal trainer you can get, no matter what you are training for, because it’s very obvious within the first 5 minutes of talking with her, that she is passionate about exercise. She will teach you proper body mechanics to make your movements the most efficient they can be. You will train with specific workouts for the work you want to be doing. She will help you find your weaknesses and conquer them. Without my time with Melissa, I would have continued to push myself in the wrong direction for who knows how long. I was pushed to limits I didn’t know I had and challenged in ways I didn’t know I could be challenged.
I approached FitForDuty coach Melissa Woolsey for job specific training, to prepare me for firefighter recruit school. Melissa helped me by leading me in task specific workouts, directly related to firefighting, and coached me on the importance of mental/emotional toughness not only as a firefighter recruit but also an athlete. As a result, I have now successfully completed recruit training. One thing I liked was her use of body mechanics over pure strength to make the different exercises safer. This allowed me to complete those exercises faster and more efficiently. Working with Melissa Woolsey was a very positive experience. She continued to support me throughout my training. If you are searching for a personal trainer to prepare for a fire recruit training program, I highly recommend Melissa Woolsey with FitForDuty to help you succeed.
Unlike other personal trainers I went to, Melissa with Fit for Duty really listened to me when I told her about my limitations due to my arthritis. Melissa met me when and where it was convenient for me. Whenever I had a problem, she altered the exercise to accommodate me. She is also very knowledgable about nutrition. She told me to cut back on sugar to help my arthritis. She gave me all kinds of exercises to do at work or quickly at home when I couldn’t get to the gym, which was great for me since I’m usually very busy. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone who wants a personal trainer that will listen to them, be flexible, and can work well with people who have injuries or need accommodations.
Lt. Melissa Woolsey is passionate about health and fitness. She places a high value on correct form and safety, and her functional movement system teaches strength and efficient movement. Her workouts are personalized and target your specific needs and goals. She has a supernatural ability to motivate and push you to up the intensity of your workouts beyond what you think is possible. After her 12 week program I found my physical abilities improved in every area, and my own workouts have been refined and focused. I highly recommend her Fit for Duty program.
Melissa understands the physical and mental battles that must be overcome to achieve great things! She knows her physiology and helps you turn your weaknesses into strengths. She will teach you great technique so that you can do hard work safely and competently. She made the difference for me; reminding me how to engage all my muscles to do the work and teaching me how to work smarter not harder. Thanks to her preparation and coaching, I was successful in SFD’s challenging Recruit Academy. She ensured i had both the physical and mental fortitude to get the work done!
