My name is Kelly and I am 29 years old with a HUGE passion for Healthy Living! I live in Austin, Texas with my husband of almost 4 years, Keith. I graduated in 2003 from Texas A&M University with a business degree in Human Resource Management and soon realized that the corporate life was not for me. Knowing my passion for health and fitness I decided to make a change and really go after what I wanted most in life. I have my personal training license from The American Fitness Training of Athletics (AFTA) and my Nutrition Manager certification from The American Academy of Sports Dietitians and Nutritionists (AASDN). My passion is to show people that healthy living can be a lifestyle that is obtainable and not a sacrifice. After getting my nutrition manager certification I realized that a lot of people out there are willing to make the necessary nutritional changes yet they simply don’t know how. Nutrition can get very scientific and be very confusing causing most people to just throw up their hands in disgust. My mission is to be the bridge between the science and the everyday life. I want to help people see that eating healthy is easy, fun and best of all it can taste REALLY good!
I am an avid runner and have been running my entire life. I truly love it. I think my love of running comes from the fact that I have the worst eye-hand coordination ever! So any sport that involved a ball didn’t really work for me. Running was the only thing I could do and was good at! I run almost everyday (usually between 55 and 60 miles a week) first thing in the morning. It grounds me and sets the tone for the entire day. It is the time when I can be me and reflect…call it my version of meditation. When I run I feel the most at ease. I have currently run 4 half marathons and 1 full marathon. I qualified for the ING New York City Marathon this November and then my sights are set on Boston!
Keith (also known simply as “the hubs”) is a certified personal trainer as well and also has specializations in childhood excercise and lifestyle coaching. We both care passionately about healthy living and showing people that eating well and being active is not a chore but a fun and easy way to live.
