About me

personal training in Thousand Oaks

My name is
Melissa Hickman and I am a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor.  Since my early days of childhood, dance and fitness have been an important part of my life. My philosophy is that fitness should be exciting and engaging while consistently pushing you towards your next level of success.  I thrive on a vibrant, motivating atmosphere when I teach classes and train clients. Fitness should be FUN!  Find something that inspires you to get moving and incorporate that into your lifestyle.  I hold many specialty certifications and have experience teaching multiple formats and children's classes. My passion for fitness stems from the simple desire to be healthy so that I can live the longest, most prosperous life with my family. In the everyday hustle and bustle of life, and the vast amount of decisions we make on a daily basis, many of us neglect the one thing that keeps us going everyday....OURSELVES!  Encouraging just one individual to make a positive change in their habits, and seeing them head down their own path to better health, is why I do what I do.
