I am Melanie Joy Marani, owner and creator of Palersize Adventures In Fitness.
My biggest goal in life is to truly make a positive difference in children's lives! Palersize gives children their first experience of exercise, instilling a belief that exercise is a really cool thing to do for the rest of their life, and that every day is a Palrific Day!
My program covers mind, body, and spirit. I strive for empowerment of positive attitudes for little ones! June 3, 2020, sets my Palersize anniversary of 25 years.
The “Pal Way” integrates positive thought and positive talk through Pal Language, a powerful method to teach confidence skills at an early age.
Along with the positive conditioning, children employ their Pal imagination and gain coordination, flexibility, and brain development, as well as social skills, such as Pal Manners, cooperation, sharing, Pal patience, and love.
- Creativity: "Getting Rid of The Yukkies" and my other creative Pal strategies help children learn to cope with their emotions and release stress in fun ways.
- Themes: I'm a theme-minded person, which makes theme-based routines easy for me to invent and integrate. This keeps kids engaged and entertained.
- Enthusiasm: Enthusiasm is my middle name! Because I truly have so much Passion for Palersize and the Pal Way; the children naturally connect with that!
When people say to me: “That job must really keep you young!”
“I believe it’s the other way around!”
