Melanie is from Pretoria, South Africa. She grew up playing netball (similar to basketball) and was also a nationally ranked track athlete. In 2017, she moved to the U.S. and began exploring multiple types of fitness industries, eventually leading her to Alpha Omega. Melanie fell in love with CrossFit; the programming fulfilled her need for fitness, but even more so Alpha Omega became her home away from home. In addition to her passion for fitness, Melanie continues to pursue her aviation career.

“It is a privilege to see every CrossFitter mustering their courage to fulfill their personal goals. It is an absolute honor to be a part of the process.”
