About Melissa Scott: I have been teaching outside the classroom for over 20 years as an environmental educator, park ranger, wild land firefighter, and now as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor. A busy wife and mom of two young boys, I consider myself a late blooming athlete after being raised in a sedentary family and only discovering in adulthood how transforming exercise is. Comfortable with all levels of exercisers, I specialize in those ready to adopt a healthy lifestyle and those with physical challenges such as heart disease, diabetes, prior inactivity, low bone density or extra body weight. Ready to provide you with a safe, effective, and fun workout I holds numerous certifications from nationally recognized fitness organizations in personal training, clinical exercise and other specialties along with a professional certificate from the University of California, San Diego in Fitness Instruction and Exercise Science along with a B.S. in Natural Resource Planning and Interpretation from Humboldt State University.
