Melissa Banos is a personal trainer in Los Angeles and a mother of two girls, ages 8 and 1. Her passion for fitness began at an early age when she was invited to teach a women’s kick-boxing class and fell in love. She began to focus on helping women become stronger and healthier while motivating them to kick-butt! Five years later she started an “exercise with your baby” fitness program for moms. She knew that some day she wanted to be a mom so it made sense for her to combine her two passions into one synergy. Three years later, Melissa had her first baby. She realized first-hand the busy life of motherhood, the challenges of working out, and the “problem areas” of a postpartum body. She focused on creating core strengthening workouts that were low-impact, highly effective, and specifically for moms. After 17 years of helping hundreds of women create the results they desire, The Inner Theory was born. Melissa has taken her experience and turned it into helping moms worldwide by teaching live, virtual classes online. Women can workout in the comfort of their own home, in a shorter amount of time with an expert by their side and get the results they desire – even in the craziness of life and motherhood.
Take A Small Step:
- It’s ok to prioritize and take a break from something, and then come back later
- Don’t be afraid to change your routine to make working out fit in your new schedule
- Make quality family time double as an activity. Biking, swimming, handball etc.
- Allow yourself to be flexible
