I have an awesome habit of getting down on myself. So I decided to try a side by side. The first pic was December of last year, before bootcamp. The second is this morning. Sometimes seeing results is more impactful then what you’re feeling.
Feeling extra thankful and grateful for my 56Fitt fam! I’ve accomplished more and became a completely different person in this last year and a half! Melanie Smith and Holly Marie you have created something beyond what I ever thought I could do! I appreciate you both more than I could ever put into words!
If you are looking for that motivation come try it, you will never look back!
RMF has a welcoming atmosphere. A brand new fresh face will be welcomed the same way a seasoned memeber is. The professionalism that all of the CF coaches has is incredible. They’re passionate, educated and crazy supportive. They have a safety first mentality and would rather spend the time teaching then see someone get hurt. Worth every penny!! Monroe has a gem here, so glad to be apart of it. ♥️Amanda
It is always a pleasure coming here to joyfully get my butt handed to me. Mel's is a great place for your all around fitness goals
Rebel Mel’s Fitness (RBS) is one of the best gyms (CrossFit and regular) I’ve been a member of. The owner (Mel) and her coaches are top level, paying attention to every athlete’s needs whether it is proper form, safety, scaling or just friendly advice. The coaches are always available for questions and thrive on your success. The programming is always interesting and well thought out. I’ve been a member for about two months and always look forward to the classes and the friendly people every time I come, especially CrossFit and boot camp classes. Mel and Holly’s 56 fit bootcamp is the best, so much fun and a great challenge. It has helped improve my fitness quite a bit and am pleased with the results. If you put in the work, you will get results with the support of coaches that care about your progressions. It is amazing at how much they recognize and support the individual. They cater to all levels of fitness. RBS is all inclusive and has so many different class options and times. There will be one that works for you on a given day. There is also child care, allowing you to work out with peace of mind that the kiddos are in good hands. If you are looking for a new gym with wonderful coaches and members, look no further. There is genuine community here. You may be pleasantly surprised that there are some members you may already know from your community. I look forward to a long term relationship with RBS and hope this description will help you stop by and see what they are about.
This gym has so much to offer. And its So much more than a standard gym atmosphere. It really is it's own Community. My 1st impression was that there are people from all walks of life here, all working towards the same goal of improving their health.
Rebel Mels is a very different kind of gym. I’ve never been to a gym that embraces so many different body types and ability levels. There are people who are skinny, muscular athletes, older people, younger people, people who have worked out their whole life and people who are just getting started. The trainers there are not obsessed with weight loss or numbers. They are focused on making you stronger and reaching goals unrelated to your weight. And most importantly, they remember EVERYONE’S name. They remember what injuries you have and they take the time to give you modifications to accommodate. They remember that it was your birthday this past weekend or that you just went on a cool trip. It is the most personable, fun loving group of workout buddies I have ever had
I currently am in week four of bootcamp and I can already see a difference in my body and definitely notice a difference in my physical abilities. My first day, I got winded running .25 miles. Yesterday, I ran a mile while carrying a 10lb dumbbell! That’s a crazy level of improvement for me considering I hate running. I included a picture of my results after just 3.5 weeks of bootcamp. I will definitely be sticking with Rebel Mels for a while!
Last Chance workout for this round of bootcamp was tonight and holy sweat balls 🤮 it was brutal to say the least! But I finished in 40:04 and I’m freakin proud of myself! I’ve come a long freakin way since this photo, over 70 lbs, from a size 20 to a 10, from and XXL to a medium. But better yet, I can chase my kids, I can laugh until it hurts, and I have gained a support group that’s worth every single drop of sweat or sore muscle.

Bought jeans yesterday for the first time since just after Lilly was born...that's not to say I hadn't gone to try any on since. I was just so self conscious and upset by the number that I couldn't buy a pair and lived solely in dresses or leggings. Not to mention my overall core strength was severely lacking, particularly from my c section. In March I was 2 pant sizes bigger than I am now and even those are too big but the next size down was just too uncomfortable. I'm really looking forward to getting closer to a place I'm comfortable with - pre Lilly isn't realistic considering my body isn't built that way anymore, but just getting to a place where I don't feel the need to cover parts I feel self conscious about would be, amazing! I'm so thankful for Melanie and Rebel Mels Fitness for being patient and helping me reach my goals of not just weight loss but getting stronger overall and much more confident! I can't wait to see where I'm at in 4 weeks after my next measurements! Thank you Mel, I definitely don't say it enough! 🥰😘❤️
I am personally challenging myself to embark on more adventures that make me happy! In addition to fitness - I want to start taking more pictures everyday and today I captured "my happy place".
You guys have all been shining rock stars that bring so much joy and motivation into my life! Monday, Wednesday & Saturday are really the best days of my week being surrounded by such powerful and motivated amazing people. Thank you ALL for all of the positive energy and power you emit. It really has changed my life and I could not thank any of you enough!
And thank you for letting me take a picture of y'all.
I'm so thankful for you Mels. Way back to the first contest we all did together! Without you I wouldn't have learned how to find myself again. I wouldn't have learned how to be proud of myself and how to push myself in the best way. You're one of my most favorite people, because you're you, you're unique, hilarious, fun, inspiring and REAL. You've taught me so much and i'm so thankful.
At first, I was very nervous to join the class, but I am sooo glad I DID!! Everyone is so positive and encouraging! Thank you! Melanie Smith thank you for continuing to push me to be better! Love you girl
You can't get better, more compassionate, motivational or caring trainers. Holly and Mel are there for you every step of the way! The workouts are brutal, but you feel empowered and strong at the end of it. If your looking to change your life and to meet lifelong friends(that become more like family) then you must try out 56Fitt! You'll never regret it and you'll never look back! Love you girls!
