Originally from Montreal, Canada. I started training in the art of dancing and training at the age of 16, in different divisions that were in high demand for musicals, corporate conventions, and the film industry.
- Mambo & On 1 & On 2 Salsa
- Brazilian Samba & Ballroom
- Hip Hop & Jazz
At the age 20, I started touring professionally throughout Canada dancing in musicals, music videos & several movies. After graduating college with a degree in Multimedia & Graphic Design I was granted an opportunity as hostess for a Canadian National Television show.
Moving to the USA in 2006 I began touring and performing internationally grabbing the attention of dance enthusiasts worldwide. In 2010 I fell in love with Zumba after stepping in a class at a local gym and later on decided to get certified so I could teach however, life had other plans due to 2 car accidents, I gained and unwanted 30lbs after many unsuccessful attempts to lose the weight I found a coach and mentor that changed everything for me, today I help others to recuperate their self-esteem and get back in the best shape ever.
Melissa McElroy originally from Tampa, FL. Since a young age I played various sports, However Soccer was my true passion. As an adult, I got seriously interested in fitness and nutrition about 3 years ago when I realized I needed to make a change in my life. Shortly after I started getting more involved in nutrition, I realized I had a lot more to learn and how I was developing an extreme love to help others get in the best shape of their lives through great nutrition.
Educating myself and keeping an open mind I began studying how nutrition combined with calisthenics, plyometrics, and endurance training can help anyone meet their fitness goals.

Hello there, I'm glad you stopped by. My journey begins as I was invited to Elite by a stranger in a random parking lot, I would have never imagined that night was going to lead to such an amazing experience. I took that invitation and came to one of the group classes here at Elite Fitness by Nutrition and shortly after I started my Herbalife program and lost an amazing 45lbs, toned my body and got my energy through the roof.
I fell in love with Zumba and the amazing vibe that we have here. I love working with people and helping others, as an assistant instructor I wanted to be a part of this and give back to our newcomers as once it was given to me. Come can check us out!
