I own the boutique Sol Fitness Adventures and am an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer. I’ve been recognized as a leader in the adventure travel industry and an innovator in extending traditional wellness retreats into the outdoors. An early adopter of stand up paddling and a certified instructor, my athletic pursuits have taken her on adventures around the globe.

I live and works in the outdoor and fitness industries in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she hikes, bikes, and stand up paddles her way through Utah’s spectacular outdoor playgrounds.

I was named named “The person to call” for guided travel in and around Utah’s National Parks by DEPARTURES. Lately, I have  shifted my emphasis from guiding customized outdoor fitness retreats with Sol Fitness Adventures to sharing  knowledge with individuals, organizations, and communities trying to develop their own outdoor fitness retreats and improve the health & wellness of their clients and citizens.

INTERESTING FACTS

I was the first person to be granted a Special Recreation Permit to teach SUP by the U.S. National Park Service, paving the way for others to operate commercially on public lands. I have a secret love of insects, particularly shiny metallic beetles. When I was 16 years old I was the National 4-H winner for my insect collection; later, I was in insect heaven while working on the insect archives at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History while living in Washington, D.C.

THE FUTURE

Melanie is working on her first book to educate and empower fitness trainers and yoga instructors everywhere to lead their own outdoor fitness retreats and help our communities live happier, healthier lives. Watch for the book to be released in Summer 2018.

FAVORITE PADDLING LOCATIONS

My favorite places to paddle are the same one’s she used to call home – out of Lone Rock at Lake Powell on the Utah / Arizona border and Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California. You can find me at Rainbow Bay on Deer Creek Reservoir or paddling out of Great Salt Lake Marina on a calm day when I'm home in Utah

FLATWATER – Great Salt Lake State Park – UTAH

FLATWATER – RAINBOW BAY – UTAH

'Rocky' as it is known by locals is a very cool standing wave at the foot of Great Falls that is favored by experienced paddlers.

COAST – BUTTERFLY BEACH – CALIFORNIA

A great sport for mid Atlantic surf. it can be a little spotty but on a good day it will break with some nice waves that are great to SUP or surf on.
