About MBS Fitness

Mind Body Soul

MBS Fitness Studio was established in September 2015. Melissa Rishel, the owner/operator, had the dream of opening a different type of exercise studio. A place where the focus would be on having a healthier life in every way, beyond “just exercising”.

We believe that Health and Wellness comes from mental and spiritual health as well as physical, and when any one of these is out of balance, it can become toxic to your body overall. We work to combat that with positivity, fun, and energetic exercise. We believe this is the key to being happy and healthy.

And we also know that we can all use some help on the journey to improving our individual health and well-being. We have created a super-inclusive and positive environment where your mind, body, and soul will thrive. All of our classes are geared to people of all fitness levels and ages regardless of body shape or size.

If you are looking for a place to feel great, and make actual positive changes in your life, and be part of a welcoming community of like-minded people, then MBS Fitness is the place for you!

Here at MBS Fitness we offer classes that focus on Functional Training. Function Training is defined by WebMD as “a type of exercise that looks like movements you make in your daily life. It can be helpful for athletic performance, injury prevention, and other everyday fitness tasks.” Put simply, Functional Training is essential to everyday life and sports.

We put the emphasis on working our bodies safely, with proper form and technique as our top priority. All of our classes are geared to people of all fitness levels and ages regardless of body shape or size. Our highly trained and experienced staff will offers modifications so everyone will succeed with meeting their personal goals.

PLUS we’re a kid-friendly studio! We have an onsite play room for kids, allowing moms to bring their children to the studio.
