Greetings! I'm Melissa, a seasoned personal fitness trainer with a story etched in determination and triumph. My journey into the world of fitness began at the age of 14 when a life-altering incident – a broken back and crushed pelvis – propelled me onto a path of self-discovery and resilience.
Faced with the daunting prospect of lifelong limitations, I refused to accept defeat. My physical therapist, a bodybuilder, and personal trainer, became my guiding light. He instilled in me the belief that with dedication and the right approach, I could reclaim control of my body. I was determined not to be crippled for life, and this determination fueled my passion for understanding the intricacies of the human body.
Armed with an indomitable spirit and fueled by a thirst for knowledge, I delved into the world of exercise science. Over the past 28 years, I've honed my skills as a personal fitness trainer, drawing on a wealth of experience and an insatiable curiosity about the body's capabilities. My academic journey includes two years of physical therapy school and a degree in exercise science, providing a solid foundation for my hands-on approach to fitness.
I don't just preach fitness; I embody it. Certified in Personal Training, Rehabilitation Training, and Sports Nutrition, I bring a comprehensive understanding of the body and its potential. Having devoured over 100 books on Fitness and Wellness, I stay at the forefront of industry advancements, ensuring that my clients benefit from the latest and most effective strategies.
As a testament to my commitment to the fitness industry, I am currently penning a book for Red Sneaker Publishing House. This endeavor is an extension of my mission to inspire and guide others on their own transformative journeys.
Embark on a fitness adventure with me, where resilience meets expertise, and every step forward is a triumph. Your body was made for more, and I'm here to guide you towards your fullest potential.
My name is Sheila Juenger and I am new to the area. I have lived in Rogers for 2 years. I am semi-retired from my occupation as a Fitness Center Manager. My educational background I have a M.S. in Exercise Science. When I first decided to go into this field I had the interest of working in cardiac rehab. After finishing my bachelors and also attending Physical Therapy Tech school I became a full time Fitness Instructor for a community college fitness center in KC where I went into management of that facility. My interest has always been about health and how the body moves. I took a special interest in nutrition. My observation for the 25 yrs that I worked in this field is to see how nutrition plays an impact on our energy and health. Even though I managed a facility for 20 yrs I never left the floor helping people train to become stronger and healthier. I taught a group class that its primary focus was only weight training. I have a firm belief that we can impact our health for a greater good at any time in our life. Feel free to contact me at 816-682-1741 to inquire about personal training.
