Kelly Whalen, Owner
B.S. Exercise Science, HFS/ACSM
Kelly is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in Exercise Science. She has professionally been in the fitness industry for over five years and has an extreme passion to help people achieve their optimal health and fitness. Her passion is driven through her own struggles of being overweight as a child and young adult and battling through losing 40 pounds during her freshman year of college. She wants to use her experience to help others.
When Kelly is not in the gym, she is spending time in the mountains with her family and her dog, Georgia. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, and camping, and just being outdoors! She also enjoys nutrition and cooking healthy meals. She hopes to one day own a small (misfit) farm filled with chickens, ducks, bunnies, a pig, and a cow.
She has worked with all different populations including elite athletes, recreational athletes, overweight & obese clients, diabetics & "the out of shape" populations. All of which includes a safe and goal oriented "FUN" program.
