She began teaching Body Pump and since then became certified through AFAA, Spinning, Yoga, and Kickboxing. Kelly and her husband Mike, an ex-NHL hockey player, reside in Independence and coach individual players and hockey teams in the Cleveland area. They have 3 daughters who seem to be following in their parents’ athletic footsteps! Kelly enjoys coaching her daughters’ teams.Kelly is an avid runner and has competed in many half marathons around the area. She enjoys the ‘group’ exercise atmosphere as she runs with her friends early mornings during the week. She promises challenging classes but you will leave with a smile! One day she will be able to beat Heather – they have been competing against each other in softball since they were teenagers. Heather always wins.
