Melissa Rourke, CES, CPT, CEG, ME-NC
Lead Body Appreciation Coach
Melissa is a uniquely driven, independent, and self-motivated woman. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Yale University, graduating with distinction in her major. She then earned a law degree from Georgetown University. Over the years her jobs have included White House Intern for then-Vice President Gore, and legal extern at the Washington State Supreme Court. Until 2011, she was a successful environmental lawyer in Washington State. She now devotes herself full time to her coaching and training clients.
Despite her accomplishments, Melissa struggled with her weight as a child, teenager, and into her adult life. She tried different diets on occasion, but was never able to achieve sustained weight loss. She was on the rowing team in high school and college. She loved the feeling of being an athlete, but her issues with weight and body image kept her from reaching her full potential in the sport. Over time, her weight continued to climb.
Melissa knows first hand what it is like to try to achieve significant weight loss and fitness goals while maintaining a full time, demanding career. She used to feel as though she had no time to eat well or work out. Developing her own personalized fitness, wellness, and eating program has been key for her. Additionally, learning to manage emotions without turning to food is integral. She believes strongly in dropping the deprivation and “diet” mentality and instead creating a fit lifestyle from the inside out. She loves helping her clients figure out how to optimize their program to make it work for them as individuals.
As a Lead Body Appreciation Coach, Melissa has achieved the highest level of training and certification offered by The Greater You. She is also a Corrective Exercise Specialist, a NASM certified trainer, and a graduate of both the National Personal Training Institute, and Coach U’s Core Essentials Program (CEG). Melissa has taken a wide range of certifications including Functional Range Conditioning, Training for Warriors Levels 1&2, Dax Moy's Mind Map & Body Map Certifications, Precision Nutrition Levels 1&2, and many more. Melissa is the co-author of The Greater You’s fitness and nutrition planning workbook, Create Your Greater You: Design Your Fit Lifestyle.
