Why You Should Invest in Yourself


This is a Run Lift Mom podcast interview with Melissa Vogel.

Who is Melissa?

Melissa Vogel is an energetic keynote speaker, business owner, certified personal trainer, certified group fitness instructor, 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, a mother of three, and a podcaster.

Melissa has been voted as the Best Personal Trainer for 2020 by Inland Empire Magazine, and Built the Busy to Bomb Fit Mom exercise system.

Melissa has three daughters and says “no female body is ever the same after giving birth to another human being!”

You got that right, Melissa!

Though she has formal wellness education and holds multiple health and fitness certifications, the most impressive thing about her is the way she approaches fitness for busy Moms.

She emphasizes how important it is to learn to love, honor, and respect the new versions of themselves when they become moms. Through Busy to Bomb Fit Mom and the Bomb Mom podcast, she coaches and teaches busy Moms how to regain strength, vitality, and mentally fitness.

Melissa says, “I work with moms who want to be fit and toned, WHILE balancing family life and their career!”
