“We only regret the chances we didn’t take.”


ONE song that gets me going:

Bang Boom by Tommie Sunshine & Krunk

ONE of my guilty pleasures:


Melissa Salomons, or Mel for those who are short on time, brings a kind, easy-going and energetic vibe to the studio.

Legend has it that when Mel is teaching a class the sun shines a little brighter. Her kind smile and good vibe is that contagious.

Once a competitive soccer player, with over 10 years of experience, Mel now brings that athletic performance to her One Cycle classes. ”I expect our guests to arrive with an open mind and a willingness to be pushed harder than they thought they could. I am inspired to work harder when I see them giving it their all. I in turn inspire them. It’s symbiotic!”

When not at the studio you can find Mel at the University of Calgary campus (where she’s working towards her degree in Communications), enjoying hot yoga or at the dog park with her pup Lola. She fuels her busy lifestyle with coffee, protein shakes and occasionally indulging in pizza at, where else, UNA. “PIZZA TO DIE FOR!”, she says with ALL CAPS.
