Vicki Layton


Vicki Layton brings her vision and experience to Positively Fit.

“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve others, even if it requires ‘tough love’ to get them started. Procrastination and fear are tough hurdles to overcome but I know that the results are worth it. When you’ve seen the happiness in someone’s face as they ‘thank you’ for not giving up on them, it makes all the efforts worthwhile. To me this is about saving lives and making a difference!”

Melissa Shubert, PT, Personal Trainer

Melissa Shubert, PT

Personal Trainer

Melissa is an ACE certified personal trainer. While on her own fitness journey years ago she hired a personal trainer for added motivation and loved it! "It was during this process that I developed my own passion for fitness and the desire to share it with others. It's very rewarding to witness the sense of achievement and increased confidence in my clients as they progress. I even have a few clients in their 70's who have told me they 'don't fear falling' anymore and that's the best compliment I could receive." Reach out to Melissa for a complimentary fitness consultation, so she can discuss a fitness plan that is best for you!
