Personal Trainer NSCA-CSCS, Certified PaddleFitPro, Alpine Level 1 Ski Instructor
Melina Cherry has a strong passion for teaching and coaching which is ever fueled by the success stories of her clients and at a personal level by her desire to affect as many lives as possible through the instruction of sports and fitness.
Melina was born and raised in Athens, Greece. Fourteen years ago she realized her “American dream” by moving to Florida and becoming an NSCA certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS). She has been training clients privately and at the gym ever since. Her love for fitness lead her to compete in several NPC Figure shows. She also loves the practice of Skanda Yoga, training in bootcamps, obstacle courses and Crossfit.
Melina took up stand up paddling four years ago, after a car accident which left her with a separated shoulder and two herniated cervical discs, as the only activity that she could enjoy, pain free, at the time. She fell in love with the sport, which can be a total body, low impact, high intensity workout, and after getting certified as a PaddleFit Pro SUP instructor, Melina developed SUPtheworkout indoor paddle fitness around the SUP Ergometer, a SUP simulator on land. SUPtheworkout after three years has developed into a very successful water training program located in the US Sailing Center of Coconut Grove and has helped built a new fitness community who enjoys the many benefits of stand up paddling and the endless beauty of Biscayne Bay!
Melina is also a certified Level 1 Alpine Ski Instructor and works part time for Aspen Skiing Company, teaching at the kids ages 7-17 division in Aspen Snowmass.
