Hi, I'm Mélice.
Former Pharmacist, working Actress and Model in Vancouver, BC, Canada, I was born and raised in Paris, France from Congolese parents and I am the youngest of five incredible women in my family.
One of them is a doctor, another one had been sick with kidney disease her whole life and now has been diagnosed with lymphoma. Neither lives a “healthy” lifestyle. The doctor is overworked, crawling under stress, and continuously exhausted. The one who is ill has been weakened by all the medications she was on all of her life, with a weak immune system and no energy to step back and take control of her health.
The topic of health (even more so the lack of health) has always been present throughout my whole life.
After high school, I studied medicine and pharmacy in university with all this in mind. Working as a hospital pharmacist for nearly 20 years, I have been in contact with sickness more than I wished for.
Through those personal experiences, I have come to the realization that:
Now, I have decided to dedicate my life to helping people with their health. Not so much by correcting and alleviating diseases or their symptoms, but by guiding people and showing them how to shift their daily habits to a lifestyle that will contribute to preventing them from becoming sick.
For all of my adult life, Fitness has been my constant and my outlet to feeling better. To clear my mind, to release pain, sadness, anger, frustration. To express joy, love, excitement. To feel like I am fully living.
It’s what I need to take care of my family. It’s what I need to help my sister through her battle against cancer. It’s what I need to raise my two boys and see them become strong and healthy men.
We live in a toxic world, and with all the sickness that surrounds us, there is no other way.
Let me help you regain physical and mental health through MOVEMENT. Helping you move (your body, your mind, your soul) so you can find the inspiration to create, so you can move someone else's heart.
Starting today. Everyday. Together.
I created FITNESS EXPERIENCE by MÉLICE because I fell in Love with San Miguel de Allende and that there was an unmet need in the market for fitness lovers like me. I wanted to discover the city in motion and help people be happy and healthy when I would bring them to this magical place.
Because movement inspires.
Because staying healthy doesn't have to stop when you're on vacation.
This is all about a lifestyle and creating healthy habits.
Because what you put into your mind, body and soul daily matters. Surrounding yourself with beauty matters.
What you consume matters (mentally and physically) as it has an impact on your mindset and wellbeing.
You want to be igniting all of your senses to capture that energy in order to elevate yourself and others.
I want to disrupt the status quo of how people live their day to day life.
Dare to try new things: new ways to move your body, new foods, new experiences. Dare to be challenged and come out of it physically and mentally stronger.
And more important, allow yourself to enjoy it all.
