Owner, Empower Fitness
Name: Aubrey Kelsey
Known for: Kelsey owns Empower Fitness, an alternative fitness studio for women of all ages and fitness levels.
On calling herself a “fit rebel”: I embrace the idea of living a healthy, fit life for a lifetime. Today, everyone tries fad diets, looking for a quick fix, which leads to a yo-yo effect between weight loss and weight gain. I’m trying to create a rebellion/movement against that.
On not letting fear keep you from getting fit: The biggest thing people need to realize is that they’re not alone. Everyone has something they want to change and a fear of getting out of their comfort zone. It’s scary, but when you do, it’s the most empowering thing.
On her smoothie obsession: I just made up a recipe for a chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie. When it comes to food, I’m a big fan.
