Although Kelly grew up playing sports, she was not always comfortable in the gym. She understands what it’s like to walk into a gym and feel intimidated, overwhelmed, and simply not know where to begin. With effort and consistency Kelly quickly became comfortable strength training in the gym and her passion for fitness grew immensely.

Kelly graduated from The College of Saint Rose, in upstate New York, with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a concentration in Industrial Organization. She believes that exercise is fundamental to living a well-balanced life both physically and mentally. She genuinely enjoys helping people build a bridge between their current habits and the lifestyle they wish to achieve.

Kelly truly believes that you are worth the investment because the best investment you can make is in yourself.
