Kelley will assist and inspire you to pursue more natural movement patterns through foot, hip, thoracic mobility, and improved breathing techniques. Her mission as an instructor/coach is to help people achieve their fullest fitness potential through the mind body connection.
Initially trained as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor, Kelley became a Pilates teacher after chronic low back pain intensified into an injury. As Kelley realized that there was a disconnection between her mind and body, she became eager to understand how she could feel better, stronger, have more energy, and be more fit. She began to understand how to accomplish these goals through Pilates in combination with her past knowledge and experience. Kelley then further immersed herself in learning the Runity training method, which focuses on how to run pain free by improving running biomechanics and efficiency.
Kelley is a certified Polestar Pilates instructor, a NASM certified Personal Trainer, a Wellcoaches Certified Health Coach, and a Runity running coach. She completed her Bachelor's in Movement Science from Westfield State University.
Kelley not only teaches and coaches at Keene Fusion Studios but is is also our Community Connection Coordinator. The Community Connection @KeeneFusionStudios is an outreach program that partners with local non-profits to raise awareness and support through specially organized classes and events with all profits going to the sponsored organization.
“Would you like to be at a healthier weight? Feel stronger? Have more energy, and less aches and pains? Learn how to run? Hike without back or knee pain? The possibilities are endless, it’s a matter of believing in yourself! There are lots of things our bodies are made to do. What happens is we stop doing them.” -Kelley
