"Motivating. Encouraging. Personable. And throw in some wit. Just completed 8th session with Kelly and experiencing very noticeable improvements in endurance, strength and range of motion. Going Planning on adding another session a week now. Highly recommended."
"I made the decision to improve my overall health and lose weight that I had gained following a stressful year. I began working with Kelly in the Fall and have continued working with her. I knew I needed guidance as well as a "fitness plan". For me, going to the gym was a waste of time because I was very self conscious and undisciplined. I rarely did anything but use the elliptical machine and it certainly wasn't enough to help me to attain my goals. Working with Kelly has been a wonderful journey... I now look forward to working with her just to see how I have progressed. And I absolutely have! I actually enjoy the challenge now. She has continually and slowly modified my workouts, always keeping safety in mind."
I had a welcoming and positive feeling as soon as I met Kelly. Her energy is awesome! Felt good about the goals we set up. Workouts were hardcore and pushed myself everyday to accomplish these till the end. Looked forward to every class and that was a great feeling!
I've been working out with Kelly for about 4 months now and I'm very happy with the transformation I see in my body and most importantly with the way I feel. First and foremost I have to say that I've never been a fan of working out, actually to be honest I hated it, but after trying some fad diets and yoyo dieting most of my life without success, I decided to try it again. Kelly and I clicked at the initial consultation where she made me comfortable and I could feel that she wouldn't judge me (I had a bad experience with another trainer). She has been able to motivate me in a way that I've never been motivated before. We work out together 2x a week and we kickbox every other Saturday (always thought about kickboxing but I never really believed I could do it). Kelly is encouraging, supportive, and I've even used her as my therapist during a couple of our exercise sessions. I call her perky because she's so full of energy and that energy rubs off on me during our workouts. When I leave her, I'm always sore and tired (signs of a good workout) but energized. Under her nice trainer demeanor, Kelly is tough and has pushed me to do exercises that I never thought I was capable of. When I look at where I am now, I know I couldn't have done it without her and I'm looking forward to seeing where she can take me.
Kelly is amazing. I am overweight and the thought of working with a trainer was pretty intimidating but Kelly is so encouraging and good at what she does. She pushes me harder than I would ever push myself, which is what I pay her for, right?! It's never boring with Kelly, she is knowledgeable and changes it up frequently. She has a passion for health and fitness and it shows in her work. I have learned if she is asking me to do something, I am capable of doing it even if I don't believe I can.
Kelly has helped me regain range of motion, my balance and fixed alignment issues that have plagued me for years. I am overweight and always feel her cheering me on and encouraging me, never judging. She knows what I can do and pushes me to reach the limits, but never too far that I hurt myself. So thankful to have found her.

I have been training with Bodies by Kelly since October 2011. I have been very impressed with the level of education, professionalism and passion my trainer has for this work. The fact that my trainer practices what she teaches makes her stand out from other trainers I have been exposed to. I am thrilled with the improvement in my fitness level! I am doing things I never would have dreamed of doing! I love setting goals and being trained to accomplish them in a safe and effective manner. I am truly thankful for Bodies by Kelly and look forward to continuing my fitness journey
I have worked with different trainers over the last couple of years looking for a good fit. Kelly is the first one I feel keeps me and my goals in mind as she is training me. She pushes me beyond what I think I can do and it feels so good to see results. The workouts vary every time to keep it interesting and because I am 65 she makes core and balance a key element. I feel so much stronger. Thank you Kelly!
The last thing I wanted to do was make myself vulnerable to a personal trainer. After years of being laid up from injuries and illnesses, my weight was up and I was in the worst shape of my life. The thought of being weighed, measured and evaluated was enough to make me sick to my stomach, but I needed help.
From the minute I met Kelly, I was completely at ease. Her positive attitude, her compassion and understanding, along with her ability to push her clients beyond their self-imposed limitations, are just a few of the reasons she is amazing.
After a few months of working with her on a regular basis, I lost inches and got stronger. Unfortunately my weight and energy levels were still fluctuating. Kelly helped me overhaul my diet in a way I never thought possible. It wasn’t easy giving up sugar, diet sodas and lots of processed “diet” foods, but she helped me find a way of eating that works for me long term. In addition to losing weight, I now have relief from chronic pain and insomnia, plus more energy than ever.
What I love about Kelly is that she isn’t focused on getting me to be the skinniest I can possibly be. Her focus is getting me to be strong, fit and healthy - to work out and eat real food in a way that promotes long term wellness. Her approach is kind and effective, with results that exceed your expectations.
