I feel so much stronger mentally and physically. So much happier, committed to this journey y'all!
Love it. I finally started for the first time. It feels different. It's the real shit.
I am so glad I found the fitgurl challenge. Mel is so awesome and motivating. I have never felt more confident about myself and my body. Mel, you are the best!
Mel has definitely changed my life! I'm proud of my accomplishments, but I have more to do!
FITGURLMEL is a game changer! I feel like I'm a new person! I was so successful in my weight loss that I purchased the app and am a coach myself.
Just started but I felt that I've come so far already!! After today's workout, my daughter came to me and said "Mommy, you've lost a lot of weight".
I thought I was going to start my journey on the right foot, but it turned out to be a lot more than I bargained for. The app is easy and intuitive, but the physical changes that have happened in my body over the last few weeks have really been amazing!
I am a huge fan of your program. I've done the first 6-week challenge and can't wait to do the next one. The realness that you give us is inspiring and motivating, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us
This workout is exactly what I needed to get back on track and lose the baby weight. Mel's workouts are amazing and she is so supportive! Thanks Mel!
I can't believe how much better I feel not only physically but mentally as well. You have given me so much knowledge and confidence in the past 6 months and I know it will continue to grow as a person. 26 has been the best year yet!
Since I started working out with Mel in January, I have shed 30lbs! I no longer feel trapped in my own body, and I am loving the way it looks!! No joke
It has been an honor to be part of this challenge and I will continue to fight for my goals. I am a dreamer, a fighter, and I'm ready for the #FITGURLMELCHALLENGE
Mel is the BEST hype girl around and has been exactly the coach I needed to push myself harder than I ever thought possible. Thank you will never be enough, and the results speak for themselves - I am SO ready for the next challenge!
I needed a reset, and Mel's app helped me in so many ways! I was counting down the days for her program to come out, and I'm stronger and leaner than ever. The thorough explanations of how to perform each exercise is what helped me most.
Melissa Alcantara and the supportive community have been like angels, helping us stay focused and encouraging us to keep going in our journey to living a healthy and active/fit life!
I'm incredibly grateful for the support from the Facebook group during the #hbhchallengeisnobullshit - it pushed me to achieve more than I ever thought possible!
My fitness journey did not start as planned: at the height of my healthiest time in life I had a stroke and had to learn how to walk again. Life has thrown me some challenges, but I'm determined to keep going. I refuse to let the past define me and will continue to strive for my goals and adventures!
FitGurlMel understands the importance of perseverance, which is why the participant is grateful for the #hbhchallenge and for the support of this group of people. As Mel says in her book, it's ok to be mad, dissapointed, angry, and sad. That's life. You feel all that, but you keep going forward. "If you can't do one more, do three more", and that's the price that the participant paid to win 3rd place. Now, let's do that three more!
I have so much to thank you for. Basically, your program helped me take my life back and break the toxic cycle I was in. I just wanted to thank you properly for taking care of you, because you taking care of you, helped me take care of me.
I really enjoyed your 6 week hot body at home challenge; your videos and thorough explanations of how to do exercises showed your dedication to quality over quantity, which has helped me to notice some abdominal and butt definition - thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration!
I'd like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sending me the very first email about the classes, because I was just at my wits end at that point. Mel has changed my whole outlook on life; what a blessing she is!
This challenge has been Amazing!!! These 12 weeks has challenge me out of my comfort zone. Not only did I see physical changes but also mental changes. Thank you Melissa for this challenge.
I loved this challenge! I'm so glad I was able to keep my promise to myself and finish! Looking back at my before pictures to after I already feel like a winner! Gained strength, endurance, and confidence! Thank you Mel!
This is the first challenge that I have stayed consistent with. I'm extremely happy with the results. At 45 years old, I see more muscle definition than my teen years. I love my new body!
The Thick N' Fit Challenge gave me structure and helped me become more disciplined in how I use my time, and I'm thankful for the amazing experience!
I needed something sustainable. By the time I wanted to get fit I had a demanding job, a 1 year old, a husband, bad habits, and I couldn’t afford a personal trainer or nutritionist.
Sound familiar? Well, let me tell you — if I was able to accompish the seemingly impossible task of getting fit, so can YOU. And I’m here to help you do it! We’ll put in the work to get better together.
When I started my fitness journey I didn’t have a mentor, trainer, experience working out, and there were no fitness experts to follow and learn from on social media. FitGurl Me was created out of a deep desire to be there for you.
My goal was to be your trainer, your motivator, your guide in this journey and for you to become a FitGurl through love, community, and hard work.

Do you have any workouts for women with Diatasis Recti?
Diestasis recti is a gap between the ab muscles that happens usually during pregnancy. If you are around 35 years old and/or gain quite a bit of weight during pregnancy, these are factors that greatly contribute to developing diastasis. Working out is an effective way to strengthen those muscles, but keep in mind that you will need quite a bit of time and work.
Not sure where to start?
1) Watch my macros class and start tracking your macros.
2) Follow my 365 Food Guide.
3) For workouts start with Hot Body at Home followed by FitGurl ME. Then switch to the gym workouts!
If you’re feeling discomfort during training, that’s ok and normal. If you’re feeling pain, that’s different and would require a doctor to look at. Everything in between, you got to workout
Do you know a fitness trainer who makes workouts for expecting mothers?
You can do hiit, you can lift weights, you can do almost anything as long as it doesn’t involve jumping once your belly gets too heavy for that. The myth that you can’t workout during pregnancy has been debunked ages ago.
Start Hot Body at Home and/or FitGurl ME. Skip the plyo exercises and simply do them statically. Don’t skip the weights.
I also have a 365 Fit fit food guide to help you with eating well during pregnancy and avoid unneeded weight gain.
I have a herniated disk, can I do any of the programs?
Herniated disk is a bit of a fucked up injury. 1) if you work out and do physical stuff, it’ll inflame it and make it feel worse, and 2) if you don’t work out and do physical stuff it’ll get worse, you’ll become weaker, and it won’t end well.
You see, there is no scenario where you don’t feel pain or potentially throw out your back and be out for a week or so. You need to learn to move in mechanically correct patterns aka having good form. If you start with Hot Body at Home is your best shot. Take your time, watch how I move, listen to my cues, and get that back strong af. I’ve had clients with your injury before and usually it takes 2-3 years of consistent work for the muscles to be strong enough to basically do everything and hold you in point with minor discomfort or 0 discomfort. Surgery hardly ever fixes this.
