When I started coming to CrossFit Launchpad I was hoping to stay in shape between my sports seasons. I never could have guessed that two years later I would be completely obsessed with CrossFit, in the best shape of my life, and part of an amazing community.

My coaching experience with Melinda has been a valuable journey of self-discovery. I came into our first session expecting a run-of-the-mill coaching program but Melinda quickly shattered my expectation of our sessions being ‘another work obligation’.

Melinda’s coaching focuses on revealing my genuine desires and motivations and she patiently works to help me understand myself so that I may step toward greater fulfillment. There is no fluff or filler in our meetings and I truly value each minute spent under her guidance. Working with Melinda grants me the ability to view my behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs from an angle that is otherwise inaccessible and for that reason, our sessions have been some of the most memorable and genuinely helpful experiences of my life


Melinda was my coach for 2 years and the time spent was invaluable. She is an exceptional listener, asks the right questions, and challenged me to be the best version of myself. It was important to me to be an effective leader and Melinda was critical in helping to define my leadership style and areas that required development in order to get there. The skills and techniques I learned were instrumental in progressing my career and will continue to benefit me both professionally and personally.


I’ve been working out at CrossFit Launchpad on a regular basis for over a year and haven’t felt this good since college! Ronda and Melinda make workouts fun and I enjoy the camaraderie of working out in a group setting.

Walking into a CrossFit gym for the first time can be a little intimidating but at CF Launchpad, Ronda is one of the most welcoming and inspirational people you could ever meet. She spends the time showing you the proper form for everything and will modify any exercise as needed as well as challenge you to push yourself.

I recently sat with Melinda for a nutritional evaluation and I learned so much from her. I am doing things I never thought I could do and getting stronger and more confident every day.

My four school aged daughters go to CF Launchpad as well and LOVE it!!!!! I’m so glad I walked into Ronda’s gym a little over two years ago. I am hooked.
