One of the world’s top personal trainers, Kelsey Wells, shares how exercise and fitness helped her heal postpartum depression and completely changed her life. She talks about her “screw the scale” philosophy, why you need to change your workouts post-pregnancy, why she focuses on weights vs cardio, and so much more in this Happier & Healthier podcast episode
Personal Trainer & Founder of PWR
At the age of 29, Kelsey has become one of the most sought-after personal trainers to provide health and fitness advice to women around the world, including for her over 1.5 million Instagram followers. Kelsey rose to influence following her transformation photos in 2016 when her message of wanting women to feel beautiful was heard online. Her social post ‘Screw the Scale’ went viral in July 2016 when media recognized Kelsey’s passion and desire to share her message with women globally. Women haven’t stopped resonating with Kelsey since, as she continues to help her community focus on self-love, inner strength and lifting weights without intimidation in the gym. Now Kelsey is a proud Sweat trainer and the creator of two workout programs: PWR - a gym-based weight training program designed to help women sculpt lean muscle and increase their overall strength, and Post Pregnancy - designed to carefully assist women in regaining their strength and confidence after having children through low impact abdominal, pelvic floor and full body workouts. Taking a holistic approach to postpartum health, Kelsey encourages women to care for and nurture their bodies.
