Biography

For over 12 years, Kelly has been involved with martial arts. She earned a Black Belt in Taekwon Do and a High Red Belt in Hapkido. Kelly knows the discipline and hard work that goes into training and competing at a high level. She puts the same level of discipline in her coaching. While instructing and programming a women’s Taekwon Do class she knew that coaching is where her passion is. She is very experienced in Taekwon Do, Hapkido, Mixed Martial Arts, and Kickboxing and she was looking for a strength and conditioning program to compliment those arts. She came across CrossFit in 2010, and was hooked. In July 2011, Kelly was CrossFit Level 1 certified and has been coaching ever since. Her future goal is to develop a self defense class for all people, using her background in Mixed Martial Arts. Although Kelly has been active and an athlete her whole life she didn’t discover all of these disciplines until the second half of her thirties. She believes everyone can start anytime and be successful, its never too late.
