Melissa Sischo, owner of Infinity Fitness and Wellness, lives for lifting people up, helping them through their challenges, and teaching them to celebrate their accomplishments. She has a kind nurturing side, but can deliver a challenging workout, getting you the results that you want!
From childhood through her teenage years, Melissa was a dancer, even competing for a few years and remembers her mother teaching aerobic classes to friends and co-workers. She even has fond memories of doing Jane Fonda records with her mother! All of these things sparked her love of doing fitness videos at home and going to the gym.
It was apparent to Melissa at a young age that she wanted to help others, so in 1999 she entered Bancroft School of Massage Therapy. Her love of massage and the holistic health and wellness world led her to get certified as a yoga instructor and a Reiki practitioner. She went to work at the YMCA as the Heath and Wellness coordinator building the massage program there and teaching yoga. Melissa has now been a Massage Therapist for 13 years and a yoga instructor for 11 teaching everything from gentle yoga, meditation, seniors, and kids yoga to boot camp yoga and heated power yoga.
Not wanting to stop there, Melissa got certified as a Personal Trainer and a Zumba instructor, satisfying her love of dance! When she left the YMCA she arrived at Body in Action in Warwick to work for Jennifer Mello. The pair made a great team helping people reach their goals. In November 2013, Melissa decided to embark on her own journey with Jen by her side and that's how Infinity came to fruition. Whether it's yoga and meditation, or boxing, boot camps, and weight loss challenges, she can deliver the outcome you are looking for!

No goal or dream is too small or too big!"
