Melvin has made a welcomed improvement in my daily life. I am 84 years old and I was becoming very concerned about my physical condition. I could easily walk two or three miles or more, but I was worried about my balance. When rinsing shampoo out of my hair in the shower, I couldn’t close my eyes without getting dizzy. Fortunately I read an article that said the loss of core muscle strength can be a predisposition to injury. Old geezers lose core strength and eventually fall down. That has happened to several of my contemporaries. “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” is real and and shouted by hundreds or thousands of old people daily….In an attempt to strengthen my core I interviewed two of the nationally known fitness centers because my insurance gave me a free membership, but neither had a program for old geezers other than dancing to loud music with old ladies.

When discussing my problem with my son he recommended Melvin Parris at Elite Fit 4 Life. When I went to Melvin he explained why loss of core muscle strength caused balance problems and how it could be corrected. I have been training with Melvin for seven months and I am very pleased with the results. I have not lost any weight but I have lost three inches in my waist and my balance continues to improve. This is not to said you can stop the effects of old age, but you an improve your core strength, balance, posture and quality of life.

Melvin has a degree in strength and conditioning, has played professional sports, helped professional athletes rehab and trained college and high school athletes. He is training my 18 years old grandson who will be playing college basketball this fall. Melvin is kind, courteous, patient, conscientious, knowledgeable and experienced in all levels of strength and conditioning training.

If you know someone that is beginning to show signs of age related balance problems, I urge you to get them in touch with Melvin.
