New owner Melinda Lutes will take over ownership of Coffee Street Fitness and Dance in Lanesboro, Minn. on January 1, 2013, just in time to help everyone in Fillmore County with their New Year’s resolutions. Melinda is very excited about her new venture saying,“It is very rewarding to help people reach their health and fitness goals.”

Melinda is no stranger to Coffee Street Fitness and Dance as she has been teaching fitness classes there for the past two and a half years. Melinda is a certified fitness instructor/personal trainer and feels she is qualified to run a fitness center as she has been teaching fitness classes, including her signature Project Hot Body Bootcamp and Zumba classes, for the last two years. She is certified in fitness, nutrition, and coaching, which is why it made sense to offer her services to people who are interested in their health and well being. Melinda’s clients “have been able to lose weight, lower their cholesterol, and get in tip top shape,” according to Melinda.

Melinda has personal experience with weight loss and a healthy lifestyle as she personally lost over a hundred pounds after her children were born. Because of her constant battle with weight loss, and other health related issues, she wanted to learn how to successfully live a healthy and balanced lifestyle so she went to school to become a certified fitness instructor/personal trainer.

Melinda cares so much about families living a healthy life together that she started a non-profit organization called Project Fit Families. Project Fit Families is about bringing families together and sharing experiences. The mission of Project Fit Families is “to raise money with our fun events and activities so that we can support local fitness programs for kids” according to its website www.projectfitfamilies.com. All of the money raised goes towards school sports programs, year-round recreational programs, scholarships for fitness, and sports activities education.

As the owner of Coffee Street Fitness and Dance, Melinda states that she plans on “spending more time working one on one with people on their individual goals by doing fitness and nutrition programs.” She will offer classes such as Project Hot Body Bootcamp, Yoga, and Dance. Melinda will also be adding a Biggest Loser six-month weight loss challenge starting in January 2013.
