Melissa, an avid distance runner from the US, began competing in road races at a young age. After having run pretty much all of her life she decided in 2012 that she wanted to run at least one marathon. Her "one" marathon ended up turning into four more marathons and led her to discover a newfound passion in cycling as she incorporated other sports into her training regimen. Along with her German roots, her love for the outdoors and being able to endlessly run, bike and ski year-round prompted her to trade in Central Park for the Alps the end of last year. Although she is often outdoors hitting the trails and road you will also find her grinding it out on the bike in a Burn class and pushing through a core building Power class.
