I started going to the gym when I was 16. Team sports were all school had to offer and that was really not of interest to me. I started horse-riding but felt it lacked the overall workout.
As the gym became part of my routine, I enjoyed seeing the results – getting stronger and healthier. I knew I had a passion for this form of activity and exercise, I decided to pursue it after school as my career.
I went on to do my NCEF gym instruction followed by the NCEF personal training in the University of Limerick.
While working in a gym I did follow up courses such as Reebok spin, Vertical Dance, Kg Elite Strength & Conditioning, Lifeguard and First aid.
Teaching classes is my passion, I decided to go out on my own teaching Bootcamp, Aerial Hoop, Pole Fitness along with One to One personal training.
I love to set challenges for myself, I decided to compete in bikini fitness (this is not for everyone) as it is a very restricted lifestyle while training. I placed 2nd in NPC and 3rd in RIBBF Spring classic 2018. I placed 1st in RIBBF spring classic and 3rd place in Cork Bodybuilding show 2019. You can follow my training on Instagram: kellyfitanddance and kellyfitanddancestudio (See below).
The combination for my passion for the gym, my Aerial performances and bodybuilding have given me a broad experience.
I believe we need to seek inner happiness to glow on the outside. In 2020 i completed my speakers course with one of the top motivational speakers in the world Mr Les Brown. I am currently giving talks across the world on self-care, goals, and self worth.
I feel I can help you achieve the NEW YOU … at whatever level of fitness you are.
