Welcome to letlerfit
My name is Melissa Letellier, owner of LetlerFit™. I am a 24 year old with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and a Minor in Nutrition and Dietetics as well as an International Relations and Political Science BA with a minor in business. By the end of 2019 I will have a Masters of Science in Kinesiology. I have always had a passion for fitness. Growing up, my parents supported my participatuiion in soccer, dance, gymnastics, and tae kwon do. Eventually, I decided to dedicate my time and focus solely on tae kwon do. I practiced for 13 years, earning my 4th degree black belt, 2 sparring state championship titles, and a bronze medal at the world championships in sparring along the way. When I started college in Fall of 2011 the academic time constraints did not allow me to continue my practice, but I was not satisfied leaving fitness out of my life. Subsequently, I began doing Crossfit and at home workouts. Now, I focus exclusively on powerlifting and my own training. My most impressive record is my back squat of 303 pounds at 5’6″ weighing 155 pounds. This is the thought behind my decision to create an apparel line for both men and women that is a 100% reflection of my personality and allows it’s wearers to be comfortable and excited at getting ready to get fit!
Where did the name come from? When I was in middle school, my best friend at the time got a kick out of everyone always messing up my maiden last name (Letellier), and somehow came up with the nickname Letler. Ever since then, it’s stuck.
Why did I create LetlerFit™?
As a fitness professional who began her entrepreneurial journey as a full time student, and is now going to continue as a full time graduate student, I understand life gets hectic. Oftentimes life gets in the way with fatigue, countless daily tasks, and stress standing in the way of the gym. I, however, believe exhaustion and responsibilities should not be an excuse because health needs to become a priority! We always find time for what we deem important, so why should our health and fitness not be deemed worthy of being a priority? I was laid out my at-home workouts, which have become a total body series and now offer personalized fitness coaching 100% catered to YOUR body and it’s capabilities.
I also believe it’s important to feel good in order to look good and what better way than to have lively patterned work out clothes that you can enjoy wearing?
This is the thought behind my decision to create an apparel line for the empowered woman that is a 100% reflection of my personality and allows it’s wearers to be comfortable and excited at getting ready to get fit, in the highest quality, of course!
We are on a mission to empower women into fitness!
