Melanie NyhanVerified 3 Reviews
Hi! I'm Melanie - I grew up in New York and have enjoyed health and wellness since I was 14. I was a gymnast growing up and have always loved combat style training (boxing, jujitsu), gymnastics & calisthentics, as well as strength training. After graduating with a degree in psychology, I became certified as a trainer and have been helping clients build a healthier, sustainable lifestyle ever since.
I love to incorporate different styles of training within each training session, making sure to use progressive overload to reach your goals as well as making individualized programs so that you're getting exactly what you need. I am supportive and will push you beyond your perceived limits at the same time. I truly pride myself in being a phenomenal coach, really being able to connect with my clients and create lasting, healthy lifestyle habits. I love to educate people on why we're doing what we're doing, and showing you new things to keep things spicy.
If you're looking for a trainer to help build lasting results, say less. Feel free to reach out to say hi and ask any questions you might have! I look forward to working with you!

Training with Melanie is a great experience. Whether she’s known you on a personal level or is training you for the first time, she is professional and goal oriented. She guides you through every exercise while showing you the target areas you are going to hit during the workout. She’s VERY patient. Willing to show you a movement as many times as you need to understand it because she wants you to do it right not quick. I train with her weekly and it’s a new experience every time.
I started going to Mel 4 months ago and this woman taught me how to workout!! All her workouts are paced in a way that I could follow. I also have a lot of fun training these days. I started to notice results right away, and now 4 months in, i am truly reaping the rewards of working consistently with Mel to get the results I wanted. She's incredible- highly recommend!
Let me just start by saying this: I’ve consistently trained in both group and individual trainer styles for over seven years now— Melanie Nyhan is by far the best. Unfortunately for me she has relocated to Colorado but when she reached out to see if I could recant my experience with her via review I absolutely had to stop what I was doing!! She’s that great. Honestly the more I think about my current trainer here in Buffalo, NY the more bummed I’m getting! Hahah Joking… kind of!! Here are the three reasons why you should consider Mel as a trainer: 1. She Listens: As mentioned I’ve been trained in various settings and with over a dozen trainers. Mel was one of two trainers whom in my opinion, actually listened to me. She critically listened to my goals/weaknesses and even fears, and then she helped me create a tailored plan FOR ME, with me. 2. She’s unjudgmental as Fuck! I am my own worst critic but knowing that doesn’t make vulnerability any easier… especially with a stranger. Mel made it really easy after our initial consult to feel safe showing up. I remember our first few sessions together got easier and easier for me because I could feel her genuine support and lack of judgment for where I was at in my physical ability. She really created a safe space and met me where I was at! 3. She’s Got the Juice: She has the science + background knowledge/experience that I simply don’t have the time or desire to learn about (if we’re being honest). I felt secure knowing that Melanie studied exercise science and even had some basic knowledge in physical therapy— both of which were important to me because I had no clue what the heck I was doing!! Anyways, after 9 months with her consistently (we did a biweekly session, total of 18 sessions before she moved) I could feel the difference. She helped me build a foundation and I havnt looked back since!!! If you’re in the Denver area and needing some help getting going I highly suggest that you contact Mel! I have no clue what she’s charging these days (full transparency: I paid $125/session but back then she also was helping me with a diet/meal plan so things could be different now) but it’s worth every investment— it’s YOU after all! Quit waiting. Make some goals. Get some help. Be patient + consistent. See the change.
