Melissa Walp

Melissa (aka Power) is our September PAX spotlight! We are thankful for the gentle yet fierce energy she brings to FiA Memphis. Power is our AOQ for our Saturday location and helps keep us up-to-date on all things FiA! We appreciate you, Power!


1. Tell us about yourself!

My name is Melissa. I've been married to Kyle for almost 7 years and we have two kids, Paxton is 5 and Bailey is 2. I work from home as an Independent Support Coordinator for people with intellectual disabilities. I love coffee, sunshine, smoking things on my pellet grill, reading and re-creating various things from Pinterest. I am a 9 on the Enneagram.


2. How did you hear about FiA?

 My friend, Stitches, invited me one day when we were singing on praise team together at church. I came the next day and was hooked.

3. How did you get your FiA name?

When I first started coming to FiA I was training for a Powerlifting competetion. I'm no longer competing but I do still lift in our garage gym.

4. What makes you keep coming back to FiA consistently?

The workouts are fun and push me to keep getting better physically. I also love the community of women who push each other, laugh together, and share life in a completely nonjudgmental way.

5. Favorite thing about FiA:

The sense of belonging I felt from the very beginning.

6. Favorite Quote(s):

Live life today as if tomorrow is not promised. Have no regrets, live life to the fullest! -Pamela Wright
