  • Working out, running and choosing the right fuel for my tank AKA my food choices have helped me bounce back physically. Neuro wise has its challenges, but I have goals and will not give up. I have come too far from where I started. I will never let the past define me it will only make me drive harder! I am today happy, healthy and ready to conquer this journey. I still have so many goals and adventures in my future! Just wanted to share my story! Never give up!

  • Mel has definitely changed my life! I’m very proud of my accomplishments, but I have more to do!

  • Melissa Alcantara has been like an angel for me in this journey to living a healthy and active/fit life. Weight loss always takes time especially when it’s done right. Don’t be discouraged by the scale and don’t let anything or anyone hold you back from what you want for yourself. Just keep going! We have a great tool and great coach here everyone and we have each other!

  • I started working out with Mel in January. I started at 167lb and am not 139 (almost 30lbs!!!!).
    I felt so trapped in my own body and I hated taking pictures or looking in the mirror. Mel's programs have helped me feel strong, confident, and love my body again.

  • I feel like the biggest contributor to success is feeling like you’re doing it right and being held accountable. Mel is the BEST hyper girl around. She’s not going to sugar coat anything, and she’ll kick your ass in gear when you need it. She’s exactly the coach I needed to push myself harder than I ever thought possible. Thank you will never be enough. The results speak for themselves. I am SO ready for the next challenge.

  • I finished the FitGurl Me 6-week program created by my beloved @fitgurlmel. Yes, Mel is fam but the reason I do her programs it’s because they are legit. No shortcuts, no lies. You gotta work super hard, period.

  • I am so proud of myself. I feel beautiful again. I love myself. I feels just right. Everyone has their own battles. We must fight. Believe in ourselves and support one another. It has been an honor to be part of #HBHchallenge thank you Melissa Alcantara. I will continue to fight. I AM A DREAMER, A FIGHTER. FIT GURL ME CHALLENGE here I come!!

    Nadia Arreola
  • I knew I needed a reset and was counting down the days for Mel’s app to come out. Her program has helped me in so many ways! I’m stronger and leaner than ever. I really feel like the thorough explanations of how to perform each exercise is what helped me most.

    Thank you for empowering women

  • I started working out and competing after 2 kids by emergency c- sections and did my first competition at 41 years old. I will be 50 years old in 7 days and continue on my Fitness journey!

    Don’t let anyone or anything (like your age) discourage you!!

  • Honestly thank you. Thank you for pushing me and keeping me going. At first I thought this was all BS, but then I joined the Facebook group and I was like this isn’t BS. I didn’t plan on completing the 6 week in full let alone all the mini challenges you set yet I did.

    Adrian Muniz
  • I think Fitgurlmel felt me, somehow she did, that’s why I won 3 place. And for me that’s the price for that “if you can’t do more, then do three more”. Thank you Mel for that & this & everything. I am so grateful

    For #hbhchallenge for this group of ppl here, for myself & life

    Now, let’s do that three more!

    Love you all.

  • Hi Mel! I really enjoyed your 6 week hot body at home challenge. It really got me going and jump started my journey to get back into shape. I enjoyed your videos and thorough explanations of how to do certain exercises. I feel like so many trainers rush through their exercise regime and don’t slow it down to explain the moves. I always believe in quality over quantity and that is truly what matters when working out!Westley Berman

  • Mel has changed my whole outlook on life; what a blessing she is! I’d like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sending me the very first email about the classes, because I was just at my wits end at that point.

  • Basically, your program helped me take my life back and break the toxic cycle I was in. This is a novel now hahah but I just wanted to thank you properly for taking care of you. Because you taking care of you, helped me take care of me.

    Mel wtf are you trying to kill me?!?! It’s awesome!!

  • I feel so much stronger mentally and physically. So much happier, committed to this journey y’all!

    Naomi H
  • I finally started for the first time. It feels different. It’s the real shit

  • When the fitgul me challenge began, I was determined to become stronger and more fit. Fitgurlme was no joke that’s when I really started noticing big changes in my body. I had energy and endurance and in combination with your workouts I started walking more and jogging. I can’t wait to see where I will be after the 10 week Fitgurlme. I could not be more proud of how far I have come. Thank you Mel!

    Amanda McConathy
  • I’m so happy I came across your app over two months ago and I’m part of the most amazing and inspiring group of people on FB!! Your Macros class helped me to figure out my calorie intake. Overall I feel like the Fitgurlmel app took me to the next level with my workouts!! Thank you millions!!!!

    Ana Kundova
  • Love fitgurlmel I will never regret working out with Melissa.

    Yajaira Victor
  • I have come so far! After today’s workout I saw Mel’s post and told my daughter to take some pics of me lol
    She said, “wow mommy you lost a lot of weight. You look so strong!”
    And I’m just getting started!!!!

    Zidnzi DeFreitas
  • I think it’s possible that the biggest change is to how I look but in how I feel. My energy level, my sleep, my thinking, my balance - everything feels better than I have in ages. The workouts are evil but they’re worth it. I’m so grateful for the app and for Mel for coming up with something that doesn’t feel insurmountable for a beginner.

    Jenna Gosden
  • I started the first 6-week challenge, completed the second challenge and now I’m doing the 10-week challenge. I’ve seen the physical changes but most of all I’ve seen the mental and emotional changes in myself and in my interaction with my family. I’m grateful for these programs and the realness that you give us, thank you.

    Victoria Ortiz
  • Thanks to Mel and her amazing workouts I have lost 8lbs and gained muscles I didn’t know I had. After three children I knew I needed to get my body back on track and these workouts are exactly what I needed. I’m so proud of myself and the work I’ve done!

    Mandie Graff
  • I feel so much better not only physically, but mentally as well. I’ve gained confidence and so much knowledge in the past 6 months thanks to you. I will continue my fitness journey and cannot wait to see what a year will look like. You’ve made me a better me, 26 has been the best year yet.

    FitGurl ME

    When I started my fitness journey I didn’t have a mentor, trainer, experience working out or doing sports, and social media was in its infancy so there were no fitness experts to follow and learn from. FitGurl Me was created out of a deep desire to be there for you. My goal was to be your trainer, your motivator, your guide in this journey and for you to become a FitGurl through love, community, and hard work. This is not about me telling you what to do and leaving you to your luck, we’re a group of humans just like you who show up and do this work in order to get better together.
