Everything you need to know about Melissa's new program.
If you’re looking to develop your physique and strength, increase your performance and enhance your power, then Melissa’s new gym program, Athletic Build is here to give you the results you’ve been waiting for.
Get strong, lean and fit with thoughtful, proven programming as you gain the tools and skills you need to unleash your potential and perform at your best!
It’s also perfect for those who play recreational sports or are into running and want to strengthen their stride and up their game.
Developed for beginner and intermediate gym goers who are ready and willing to push their boundaries and take their results to the next level, Athletic Build will move through 3 week cycles, consistently challenging you to redefine your capabilities.
Depending on your level, you’ll focus on main compound lifts that work on functional movement patterns to help you move better in and outside of the gym. These lifts will also be supported by a range of accessory exercises carefully put together to ensure you build strength, enhance stability and unlock your athletic potential
You’ll also be challenged in a variety of ways, think iso holds, unilateral movements, supersets and metabolic finishers to continually improve your performance and expand your athletic functionality.
Unlike other Commit programs where each workout focuses on a target area (Legs & Glutes, Upper Body, Core and Cardio), Commit Athletic Build focuses on movement patterns to improve your athletic performance.
In each 3 week cycle you’ll focus on main compound lifts that work on key movement patterns (think squats, deadlift, pushing and pulling) to help you move better in and outside of the gym. These will become more complex as you move through the phases to ensure you keep progressing and heading towards your goals. You’ll also be challenged in a variety of ways, think iso holds, unilateral movements, supersets and metabolic finishers to continually improve your performance and expand your athletic functionality.

Whilst this program is available at a beginner level we would not recommend it if you are brand new to the gym. This is due to the complexity of some of the exercises which are included.
We’d recommend completing the Beginner Commit Gym program first, before moving onto Commit Athletic Build.
Commit Athletic Build includes functional core work throughout, increasing your stability, boosting your strength and enhancing your power.
