Member Monday: Rian Melchiorre

Determination is a word used often to compliment and describe someone who lets nothing stand in there way.

This perfectly describes this week’s member, Rian Melchiorre. Rian joined us shortly after giving birth to her son, Jax.


Since that time, we’ve watched Rian’s transformation develop in front of us. Weight loss, overall strength, and a healthier lifestyle are what we’ve seen of Rian but we know there’s more to her than that. Continue reading “Member Monday: Rian Melchiorre”

Tell us about yourself.  Work?  Family life?

 I’ve been married to my very best friend for almost 18 years! I have two awesome children that I am extremely proud of, Allie and Emma. I’ve also been a nurse for 17 years. 15 of those years have been as a urology nurse for Urology Associates of Mobile.

What made you try CrossFit for the first time?

The first time I decided to try CrossFit was after watching Allie and Wilson do a class. I pretty much decided that after 5 min. of watching them I wanted to do it. I was ready to sign up after the first day of my trial.  Continue reading “Member Monday: Tasha Bryant”
