Hello! I'm Kelly.

 I have participated in sports all my life. When I was a child and then as a teenager, I played basketball, volleyball and practiced trampoline. Seven years ago I discovered the fitness and personal trainers world in the optic of weight loss.    It was a tool for me to get the results I wanted when I first started, however it soon became a real passion for me. Five years ago, while in France, I decided to change my professional career to be a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer with the purpose of sharing this passion and to give clients an opportunity to practise sports and to help them reach their own goals.
