I am a mother of 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls). I am a small animal Veterinarian at an animal shelter. My fitness journey started after 7 years of inactivity, when I realized I was taking care of everyone else, but neglecting myself. It all started with a promise to myself to workout 3 days a week. This promise and lifestyle change sparked my new found love for fitness and movement, and lead me to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer 3 years later.
Now I help others to reclaim fitness in their busy lives through online training. My mission is to help others get strong, live healthy, and feel empowered!
I do like to stay busy, but if you find me sitting with my feet up I probably have a cat on my lap, a dog by my feet, and a coffee in my hand! With 4 kids and 5 animals in my house I am used to a certain level of chaos and I know how challenging managing a career, a household, and your own health and wellness can be!
I believe the key to success is making sustainable fitness and diet changes. Small, realistic changes, that you can sustain over the long term so that they become part of your lifestyle. It is for that reason I don't offer any diet plans or fat loss programs. I do however offer programs that will help you gain strength, cardiovascular conditioning and teach you strategies to fuel your body properly, make healthy choices, so that you will look AND feel healthy!
The name "Melgignat" means strong in Mi'kmaq (my Indigenous heritage) and I chose that name when I was starting my fitness journey because that was my goal. I wanted to be a healthier stronger version of myself!
My newest fitness goal is to become a fancy shawl dancer! Fancy shawl is an Indigenous pow wow dance style. It is one of the most athletic dance styles and I cannot wait until the day I dance in full regalia (traditional outfit containing: shawl, dress, moccasins, yoke, cape, beaded earrings, hair clip etc. ) at a pow wow. Fancy shawl training is proving to me that it is never too late to start learning a new skill, that fitness comes in many forms, and that culture and creativity were things I needed back in my life!
