WBFF Pro and Fitness Model Melissa Leigh Morrison
Melissa Leigh Morrison is a WBFF Pro Fitness model who competed and came 7th in the WBFF World Championship Toronto in 2010. Despite what may seem like a body that demands constant work and dedication, Melissa is also a mother who runs her own business “Definitive Inc” doing personal training and sports injury rehabilitation. She also trains others to compete alongside her in the WBFF.
Born in Ontario and raised in Alberta, Melissa Leigh Morrison – like a large amount of the female athletes and weightlifters we see on Sweat For It – was a former gymnast and also studied personal training. Taking this background along with her certification in nutrition means that Melissa always keeps nutrition and fitness in mind in her and her daughter’s daily life. As a personal trained, she realises the value in having her own personal trainer to keep her motivated and notice areas that need more work, and to share training and fitness information to get better results.
Training is a 6 day split, which is common for fitness models and body building competitors. It means each body part can be worked on separately to focus in on any weak areas and ensure the body as a whole is worked over properly, giving the balanced all over look that judges are looking for.
Having been the cover model on Status and Fit & Firm magazines, Melissa’s reputation as a world class fitness model is growing, with numerous shoots in 2012. We look forward to Melissa Leigh Morrison giving it another shot at this years WBFF World in Las Vegas!
