About Martin Melendez
Martin believes that connecting mind body and spirit in our approach to health.
Martin is a certified personal trainer under NASM and has several certifications
including Pre-Post Natal, TRX, along with Strength and Conditioning under NSCA.
Martin graduated with a BA in International Studies from Long Island University –
CW Post and has been working in travel for a good chunk of his professional life
until he was bitten by the fitness bug living in Boston. “I just felt empty and alone. I
had fun but my life lacked substantial meaning in my work. After watching a
TEDtalk, I came to terms with the fact that I wanted to support people becoming
their best selves they can be through fitness. So I found a mentor, worked on my
certifications, and started working in fitness.” Martin has worked for NYSC,
Equinox, and Crunch Fitness but still wanted something that was “concerned with
supporting peopleʼs health journey rather than how many times we can run their
cards for sessions”. Living Well Balanced not only supports his values to health
and wellness, but encourages him to be better everyday.
