Diet plans aren't long-term solutions. Eventually we fall off the wagon. Boot camps are effective, until exhaustion or schedule conflicts set in. Another wagon. At M3, we blow up wagons. We listen. Learn your ways (even your triple-secret habits). Then create a path to success made of micro modifications. No wagons.
Ever thought, "I'm not losing 20 lbs.today, so I might as well eat that..." Or maybe you have five extra pounds that make your clothes snug. We can help. We'll share the latest nutrition research. Give you guidance. And help you make micro behavior modifications at your pace. So you can see results without feeling the sacrifice.
Strong does not mean fit. Fit does not mean thin. Thin does not mean healthy. Whatever your goal—strength training, balance improvement, better endurance—we can help. No drill sergeants here. We'll prescribe small progressions over time that add up to amazing transformations. All we ask is that you show up and do your best.
"Bring your "A" game and lots of energy and workout with the best trainer on the Northshore of Chicago. I speak from experience having worked out with Melissa Lerner for five years while living in Northbrook. Together we achieved every stated goal we set on day one. Melissa provides the direction and you provide the dedication and work ethic necessary to achieve your goals.
The compassion and dedication Melissa exhibits to motivate and educate are as important as the exercises she programs for you. During the five year span; we worked through two knee replacement operations, one heart operation and a few other maladies causing wide weight fluctuations that culminated in hospital stays. My doctor asked me "How did you do it?" and my response was "like you told me Doc, diet and exercise!!" Don't read anymore diet books, talk to Melissa and you will see the difference."

"I had worked with other trainers.
Melissa's the best. Told her I just wanted and needed to get more fit (well, pesky torn rotator cuff, too). Initial evaluation session, identified more specific goals. Over time, methodically exceeded them all, and had fun doing it. Strength, balance, weight, posture, agility, cardio, general fitness. Zero training injuries. Changed my life."
— Bob Sacoff
"I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone young or old who is looking to get stronger, develop endurance, and overall feel well. I trained with her for five years and started shortly after the birth of my son. She taught me how to become stronger and healthier in a meticulous, stepwise fashion. I always felt safe and comfortable with her. Over the years, she quickly became not only my “trainer” but my friend. She is truly kind and furthermore, passionate about what she does—which comes through in her work. She will make you stronger and more confident. I would recommend her without hesitation."
