Today on the show I have the powerhouse duo, Lacee Lazoff + Melissa Paris, founders of Bells Up, an empowering digital strength training platform for women. 

Lacee specializes in hard-style kettlebell, barbell, and bodyweight training. As a NASM certified personal trainer and former StongFirst Kettlebell Level 2 + Bodyweight Instructor, Lacee is passionate about educating women on the benefits of using strength training progressions to optimize their body composition  + fortify their mindsets strength + capabilities. Her work of empowering women through her strength training programs has earned her features in multiple publications including Self, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Runner’s World, Shape + Women’s Health.

Melissa has an impressive 15 years of fitness and nutrition experience under her belt, holding a degree in dietetics. Melissa’s highly effective training takes her clients from a mindset of “fitness/working out, to an EMPOWERED MINDSET that has them training for LIFE performance. After the birth of her two sons, she became passionate about guiding women through safe and effective pre/postnatal strength training workouts with her specialty program, FitFourth. 

FitFourth incorporates strong First Kettlebell principles, tools from Ground Force Method, and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. 

Together, Lacee and Melissa are a creative force in the fitness world for women as they model true ownership of SELF, internal + external shape as well as being in the “best shape of their lives” at the age of 35+ while empowering other women to discover + connect with their own power + strength- at ANY AGE.
