Melody is an inspiring, driven, and positive person and as a guide, coach and mentor, had an amazing impact on my career. She taught me not only how to overcome obstacles, but how to face them with courage. In the face of adversity, Melody constantly reminded me to “Soar High,” allowing me to clearly see the big picture while remaining in the moment. Thanks to Melody, I found myself soaring higher than I ever had and I owe much of my success to her.” – Jordyn Coulter – Colorado State 800m, 1600m champion and state record holder,  National Gatorade Player of the Year and current CAL Berkley Student-Athlete

“Melody fosters an environment at camp in which I immediately felt at home. She approaches the sport with a reverence and respect not just for the physical challenges it poses, but for the internal, mental strength it demands.  She seeks to support and strengthen the soul of the runner by giving each girl access to new ways of thinking about her inner resources: her strength, talent, desire, competitiveness, vision and gratitude for the ability to put on her running shoes each day. As a result, I left Melody’s camp energized, excited and eager to lace up my shoes for any challenge the sport may throw my way. Her ability to support young female athletes is exceptional and rare.” – Isabelle Kennedy; former camper, current student-athlete at Boston College and camp counselor.

What is CFR? It is a method which utilizes the neuroplasticity of the brain to upgrade function. Read More:

CFR Cortical Field Re-ED Logo

“CFR has taught me a tremendous amount about proper alignment that helps whether I’m working out or sitting at my desk. When I’m running, and especially during a long run, CFR has given me the ability to consciously initiate movement from a different place and ‘free up energy’ I didn’t know I had.” Angela D. Bryan, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience

“As a runner, I want to stay injury free. Melody’s CFR lessons have taught me how to consciously use my whole body while running, which allows me to move more freely and effortlessly. These lessons are as important to me as running and gym workouts; I am now running pain free and enjoying it!”Will Dixon, Monarch HS XC and Track runner.
