Melissa Oberti is always looking for the latest and best of everything to try or be a part of and when it comes to health and fitness, she has found it! After taking a few years off from a steady exercise routine to raise her two children, Melissa had a desire to train for the Women’s Nike Marathon in San Francisco. Although the marathon was on her bucket list, she also wanted to get back into shape and saw this as a win-win for both goals. Through the amazing help of Team in Training and after five long months of training, she completed her first marathon. Thrilled with her marathon results, but disappointed with her overall body results, Melissa heard about kettlebells and took her first class with RKC Certified Russian Kettlebell Instructor Dina Juve in the fall of 2010. Due to the fact that she could get both cardio and strength training done in one 45 minute class and burn close to 900 calories per class, she instantly fell in love with kettlebells. Not being one to stick to “group” classes, she soon found herself “addicted” to Kettlebells after seeing how quickly she could reach her goals and actually see the results in her body…..results she never saw during her five months of marathon training.
After realizing the need to offer Kettlebells, TRX and the latest health and fitness information in a motivating and supportive environment, Melissa and Dina launched FitnessSocial to help others quickly obtain the results they want and to stay up to date with the latest in the industry. Come by FitnessSocial Studio and see why Melissa became addicted to Kettlebells and try the Kettlebell/TRX Combo class……..one of her “favorite” classes. Melissa is KBI Certified in Kettlebells & TRX Certified.
In her spare time, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family, snow skiing, cycling and running with her son when time allows.
