When you feel and see results from a workout, balancing life seems to come easy. Kettlebell training has truly become Tisha’s passion and she became a Certified Kettlebell Trainer with the Kettlebell Institute in Spring of 2012!

Melissa Spencer 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.

Mandie Simonson has had a passion for healthy living and fitness even as a child. Growing up in the country she was constantly outdoors climbing trees, riding her bike, and running out on the property. Her hobbies include soccer, water skiing, snowboarding, cycling, and running. She decided she loved helping people feel beautiful and confident so she became a hairstylist and graduated from cosmetology school in 2012. Mandie loved researching about fitness and nutrition and was constantly designing new workout routines using regular weights and cardio training. However, she was not satisfied with the "bulkier" results she felt when lifting regular weights. She decided to look into other forms of training and that is when she heard about Dina Juve and her Lean Out and Slim Down Plans. She saw awesome results from her diet change and began taking classes from Dina. Mandie immediately saw a change in her body and felt longer and leaner. Kettlebells and TRX became her core workout routine. In April of 2013 she became certified in TRX and began teaching at FitnessSocial.
