Melissa Stevenson
Founder & CEO

After entering her first body building competition in 2014 and 

transforming her own body through proper nutrition and resistance training, Melissa knew she wanted to help others reach their own fitness goals. 


In 2015 Melissa placed top 5 at both an Alberta Body Building regional show as well as a provincial show. In 2016, she placed 2nd at the CBBF Canadian National Competition and in 2018 placed 2nd in the CPA Vancouver Pro/Am Competition. Bikini competitions were not, however, where her love of fitness and nutrition began. From age 5 she played competitive hockey and in 2006 she was awarded a scholarship to NAIT with the female hockey team. 


From NAIT, Melissa received a Diploma in Business Administration as well as Photographic Technology. Melissa spent 6 years as a photojournalist before becoming a personal trainer and starting her own personal training business, Desire Fitness. 


Melissa is a certified Personal Training Specialist; Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Coach, and Pre-Natal/Post-Natal Trainer.


Since 2015 Desire Fitness has helped hundreds of clients achieve their health and wellness goals. 


Desire Fitness offers private personal training, corporate bootcamp classes, custom workout programs and diet plans for weight loss, muscle gain, metabolic recovery, and corporate wellness challenges.
