"I've played competitive sports at the high school, club, and college level and have been coached by nationally-recognized coaches at all levels - basically, I think I know good coaching when I see it. MVAs owner and head coach Melissa Lopes is one of the best coaches I've ever had"

− Mary Kay Queen

"I am relatively new to Crossfit and never dropped in a box before. On a recent business trip I decided to try dropping in a box. I was first won over by Melissa's responsiveness (I heard from her in like an hour or so!). She was super nice and I was able to fill out all the paperwork online (another huge plus). "
