MELODY SCHOENFELD, CSCS, SFG2, CMT
Owner. Trainer. Massage therapist. Nutrition Specialist.
Melody did not grow up athletic. She was a sugar junkie who was the last picked for every sport and used to get her mother to write notes to get her out of Phys Ed. Once she caught the fitness bug, though, Melody found her passion.
With over 20 years of training under her belt, Melody’s client roster has ranged from celebrities and professional athletes, to weekend warriors and complete exercise novices, to grandparents and pre-teens, and everyone in between. She is a record-holding competitive powerlifter, a Level 2 Certified Kettlebell Instructor through the RKC and SFG, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the NSCA, a Certified Nutrition Specialist, a Z-Health specialist (R, I, S, T), and a bunch of other letters that go along with papers, too. Melody has had 4.5 years of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Her writing has been featured in several publications including the Strength and Conditioning Journal, and her popular blog, Not Yer Mama’s Fitness Blog, was named one of the Top 10 Fitness Blogs in 2013 by BreakingMuscle.com.
In her “spare time,” Melody runs Evil Munky Enterprises, sings in three bands, cooks a lot of really good vegan food, tells really awful jokes, gets ridiculous amounts of continuing education, and lifts heavy stuff for fun.
