About the staff at Mellodie's...
Owner/operator MELLODIE FARFAGLIA, a native of New York state, moved to Inverness FL in 1983.  She began as a personal trainer, then started a gym which has continued to grow.   She's kept prices affordable so everyone can participate.  Rates, $31 per month 30 years ago, were increased just once to $35 where they remain.  They're the lowest in the area!

If you're looking for a place where "everybody knows your name", epecially the owner; a gym with a positive, upbeat people person running it; someone who's always there to help -  look no further... Mellodie's Gym is for you!  Maya and Muddy, Mellodie's chocolate labs, are both official assistant managers, or at least think so...
