I’ve been a part of the TP family for 7 years. I fell in love with fitness thru Pilates and my love for Pilates lead me to a profession in fitness. Movement and exercise have enhanced my life and I’m lucky to be able to share that with others. I love seeing people achieve great things and accomplish goals they never thought they could. I believe no goal is too big or too small, as long as it has meaning to you.
Experience and Credentials
I was born and raised in Asheville and growing up spent most of my time exploring the mountains around me. While in college at Appalachian State University, I stumbled across their Pilates program and was instantly hooked. At ASU, I completed a 600+ hour Comprehensive Classical Pilates instructor Certification and immediately began teaching in Asheville in 2007. I went on to complete the Fusion Pilates Pre/Post Natal training.
In 2011 I became a Certified Personal Trainer thru the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and in 2012 a certified TRX Group Training Instructor. Always looking to expand my knowledge and understanding of healthy living, I recently completed the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification for Sports and Exercise Nutrition.
I’ve worked with clients of all ages, shapes, sizes, conditions and abilities. I love helping people feel good, live a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly have fun doing so. Whether you are recovering from an injury, just getting started, or looking to add variety to your current fitness regimen, I’m happy to help you achieve your fitness goals!
Things I Like To Do
Growing up in the mountains I developed a deep love of the outdoors. I enjoy running, hiking, camping, snowboarding, and just being out in nature. In my mind, winter isn’t complete without a big snowboarding trip; the more snow the merrier! I keep my own training on track by participating in function fitness competitions every few months. Outside of the gym I enjoy travel, music, photography, cooking and dance parties with my husband and pup.
“Kelly is an excellent trainer and a natural teacher. She’s the perfect combination of tough (“Come on, only 4 more”) and caring (“That looks perfect Robin, you’re doing great”). Because of her efforts, I am stronger and more flexible, I have better balance and working out with her fun. I recommend her without reservation.
Thank you Kelly, for all you do!”Robin Schuh
“Learning about Pilates with Kelly has been a real pleasure. Her knowledge, positive attitude and, most of all, patience, make every session enjoyable and an ideal complement to my strength training.”
