Mell Barrie is Minifitchick.
Mell is a certified personal trainer with many years experience helping clients work towards their goals through personal training, bootcamps and nutrition coaching. She specializes in minimal equipment and HIIT, specifically for weight loss and strength gain. She uses functional training with her clients to ensure optimal results that will last. She has also helped her clients lose weight by changing their diets to better suit their needs and goals.
Fitness was a natural career choice for Mell as she was active for most of her life. At a young age, she took figure skating and competed in dance, in jazz, tap and ballet. After a few years she starting recreational trampoline. She stopped all other sports and activities to pursue trampoline competitively at age 11. Having won multiple medals after competing across Canada and getting a few injuries along the way, she decided to stop jumping and focus her energy into recreational dance and working out on her own at a gym.
Although Mell was involved in multiple sports growing up, she struggled with her weight and body image. From being bullied, she had a distorted view of her size. Some days she would limit her food intake as much as possible, trying to get control over her weight. Eventually, Mell learned that what she was doing wasn't healthy. She started going to the gym most days of the week doing a mix of resistance training and cardio and cleaned up her eating habits. Weight started to come off and she began feeling better about herself. Mell decided then that achieving her goal was great but getting her personal training certification was what she wanted to do. Her goal was to help out people to feel as good as she did.
