Melissa Burger- Success Story

Melissa never worked out at a gym or with a trainer before.  But when one wedding dance song left her exhausted and her legs sore, she knew it was time to train.  Melissa had a one month gift certificate to try out Wild Workouts and Wellness.  She was terrified at first, but after her first workout she knew it was going to work.

From that moment, Melissa has been unstoppable.  As an unlimited boot camp member, Melissa has seen incredible results.  She has lost 35 pounds, quit drinking soda and has completed the Dirty Girl.  Did I forget to mention that she quit smoking after being a smoker for 22 years?  Yeah, she did that too.

This mom of 3 could have a million excuses to not change.  But with the support and encouragement of Wild Workouts and Wellness, Melissa lives a healthy and fit lifestyle setting a great example for her kids.

We asked Melissa a few more questions about her journey at Wild Workouts and Wellness.


What made you decide you wanted/needed to start a program?

I was tired all the time and realized if I kept going the way I was, I couldn’t be the mom I needed to be.

What results have you achieved since starting your program?

I’ve achieved many results including increased strength, endurance and more energy.  I’ve quit smoking after smoking a pack and a half a day.  I also quit drinking soda.

What do you like best about our program/having a trainer?

That there is someone there to motivate me at times that I wouldn’t on my own and hold me accountable.  On the days I don’t want to come, I make myself.  I always feel better when I get my workout in.

What would you say to someone on the fence about joining our program?

At least try it, it can’t hurt and I promise you’ll see results fast!


Melissa loves to challenge herself on the heavy lifting days.  She has a goal of doing the Tough Mudder in the future.  Melissa’s biggest fans are her kids.  They are so proud of their mom and know that she has made changes to be the best for them.  Her healthy lifestyle has influenced and changed what her kids eat too.  You’ll also see Melissa bringing her family to all the fun Wild events we do.
