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.
