M.S. San Diego State, B.S. University of Nebraska Kearney
C.S.C.S. (Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist)
Melissa is the the female half to 1RM Performance. Her humble beginnings in Lincoln, Nebraska molded her into the coach she is today. Melissa played basketball and softball at the University of Nebraska At Kearney before continuing her education at San Diego State University. While working towards her Masters, she intered at SDSU and USD and began building 1RM with Bobby.
Now she works with junior high, high school, college, and professional athletes in San Diego. She believes that Strength & Conditioning is really quite simple - get stronger and move things faster. She is constantly researching new ways to improve her athletes' performance whether that be increasing vertical or lateral quickness or upper body power.
When she's not learning or working with athletes, she is a Subject Matter Expert at the American Council on Exercise on Youth Sports Performance. If she's not in the gym, you can find her chasing her little boy Bo around in the sand or playing/competing in beach volleyball.
