My Story

“Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. 
Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly 
explains the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15 NLT

I AM WORKING TO FULFILL MY PURPOSE

Thank you so much for being here. You have the ability to make your life amazing and ultimately take control of your own happiness inside and out. My passion is to assist you along your journey.

I am an NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and a degree in Bible.

The desire for my personal brand at Kaelafit.com and coaching began years ago. I have been an athlete and fitness enthusiast pretty much my whole life. After my basketball career ended with back injuries in college I didn’t know what was next and it took years for me to figure it out.

First, I found Jesus… for myself! My desire to know more about God and the Bible came in my 20s. At the same time, in my body I was working through pain, frustrations, weight gain, unhealthy weight loss, self-esteem issues, body image struggles, and everything else that follows.

Then I found some direction. In 2008 I kicked up my own experiment with my discipline. With the urging of a couple people in the industry I did it: I strutted across the stage in that sparkly suit and clear high heels.Where am I now?
I love my life! I am so focused on Jesus and His purpose for me. I dream of helping others find their confidence in themselves through Him. I have created a healthy lifestyle for me that I can maintain. My workout regimen and my eating are not extremely strict nor extremely perfect, which makes them maintainable for me in my life.

I enjoy the power of at-home workouts with little or no equipment. I strive to find ways to exercise with what I have and teach others the same. If all I have is 15 minutes and I’m barefoot, you better believe when that timer goes I will be dripping sweat and sit down in my living room proud of my accomplishment!

My passion lies in coaching others in the areas of fitness, nutrition, mindset, and Jesus, which I do via my online coaching and in-person training.

Just for fun, a few things you may not know about me…
