5 years ago i quit smoking, starting running…going to a gym…taking a few classes..i was in love with my new passion. The first few years of running was great..i worked out..lost some weight..until the last few years…where i was yo-yoing with my weight… I’ve always been a thicker build for my 5’2 height.. I’d get down in weight around marathon time but i always gained that weight back plus some…i thought i knew what i was doing with my nutrition..but i was wrong. I’m a foodie! I love to eat! Carbs for running…yes please!!!!
Well last year training for my fall marathon…i let my eating get out of control and gained some serious weight…and at the time of my last marathon i was the heaviest I’d ever been in my life!!! Although i completed my 7th marathon.. my race pictures were an eye opener… I became a fat runner..sad i know, and that bothered me! i knew i needed to make a change!! Thousands of miles logged… i let food get the best of me…i couldn’t believe it !! I knew i needed a change…i worked out enough so it had to be the food!!! My ah-ha moment!!! i wanted to know how to eat…what to eat for my body to make it work right!! But i didn’t know how to do that. A friend of mine recommend i contact this trainer she knew.. who she said was AMAZING! And she would help me! ….Me! The foodie..yea right!! I thought this Kelley woman has no idea what she’s getting herself into lol
Kelley was so amazing and supportive in our first conversation.. she was ready to take me on! She was more excited for me achieve my goals, i knew then no matter my journey…dreams and goals…she’d be right there and to do whatever it took to get me there!
Soooo i began with her boot camp this past November..with a food plan that was really doable…i was never hungry…i was learning how to eat..what to eat and how much…to help make my body a machine again! Her workouts were challenging but they were great! By the end of December i actually lost 12 lbs! Through the holidays which is nothing short of a miracle!
But i wanted more! I knew with Kelley’s help i could keep going and challenge myself more! I wanted to lose more weight!
In January..i began asking Kelley about her bikini and barbells team..she said it wasn’t too far off of what i was doing now as far as diet and exercise..we got to choose a show to compete in…but i wasnt sure i could do it…kinda outta my league…me the marathoner…in high heels….girly/diva???…
Kelley said it would be a challenge..and have to say it was one of the best challenges I’ve ever done…and if you know me i love a good challenge …hence my passion for marathoning! I was in..nothing like a triple dog dare to motivate me! Lol I was in!! Game on!
My new journey had begun…16 weeks of hard work…dedication…lay ahead of me..but i knew i was ready to make a change…i needed to make to do this for me…and only me…Kelley gave me the tools but i needed to do the work…and boy did i work lol
This adventure was filled with so many highs and lows.. but i had amazing coaches and team mates that helped me achieve every one of the goals i set for myself!
Soooo today i have lost almost 30 pounds.. I walked across that stage at Fitness Atlantic April 9th…a stronger..better version of me! I was able to do something that i never thought possible…crossing that stage at the competition was huge for me. Without Kelley and coach Gina…all the amazing woman I’ve befriended..my team..my gym mates… I’m not sure i couldn’t have done it!!
If you want to make a change in your lifestyle..become a better stronger you…Kelley WILL GET YOU THERE! Trust me…i never thought in a million years i could do this…i learned to treat food as a tool to make my body a machine again! I learned how to eat…the workouts made me so strong…I’m really in love with all my new muscles…and I’m so proud of them!
I’m back to running again…and whatta know…I’m a much faster runner now that the weight and extra fat is off!!!
Change your lifestyle …change your life!
I can’t wait to see what new adventure we have planned next!! Always reaching for new goals!! Thank you Kelley ..coach Gina…my team…my amazing new family of inspirational woman!!
With all of you by my side i can accomplish anything…love you all so very much!! Xoxo“

Looking forward to signing up again for next month, one of your newbee’s Gisela”
“Working with Kelley was one of the best decisions I have made. I started working with Kelley in February 2014 because I wanted a new challenge. I initially met with her with a big goal in mind. I told her I wanted to train for a bikini competition. Instead of telling me it would be impossible and difficult, Kelley told me how great the experience would be and that we could make it happen together, I just needed to trust her. Kelley immediately made me feel better about my goals and she consistently maintained her positive energy and motivational personality throughout the entire 15 weeks. Kelley always made herself available, provided consistent check-ins and feedback and supported me and our team to the very end. Having her support meant so much. I would recommend Kelley’s boot camp to anyone seeking a strong coach, positive role model and trainer who is fully invested in the success of her clients. I would not have been able to reach my goals without her support. Kelley not only helped me to transform my body but she helped me to become more confident and proud of my accomplishments. Kelly is truly dedicated and passionate about her job and about helping others achieve their goals. Thank you for everything Kelley!”
This is Alicia from the 5:15 am class. She has been with me over a year and I am so proud of her! Here is what she has to say:
“Thank you so much I couldn’t have done this without you! I was the poster child for thinking I could eat whatever I want and just workout. January 2013 is when I really made the big change and stopped drinking every weekend and cleaned up my diet a lot. I now know why people say its 70% diet 30% workouts! I’m so happy with my results so far & I’m not stopping till I get my 6 pack abs! Haha thanks again for everything :-)”
This is Gina D in the 5:15 am class. I couldn’t be more proud of her as she stuck to her goals and focused on her end result which was 14 weeks of training and eating clean. Her transformation is so exciting because it goes to show that ANYONE can do this!!! We never have to stay “stuck” in a body we are not happy with. It takes strong minds and determination!
This is what Gina had to say:
“I want to thank you for taking the time to work with me. It means so much to have you as my trainer and coach which truly makes this journey even better. I wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for your support. I NEVER, EVER thought I would feel this amazing…not in my wildest dreams! In fact, I feel like I dreamed of having this courage, determination, and discipline but it never seemed possible to achieve. And guess what? Holy Sh&#@!! I am doing it!!! Thank you again and again!!!”
I’ve been in the class now for 3 months and I have lost 20 lbs. I have had many personal trainers Kelley is by far the best. Kelley’s energy is unbelievable.
“In September of 2012, when I was going through a very stressful time in my life, a friend told me about Kelley’s bootcamp class. As a runner who avoided weights of any kind like the plague, I was seriously intimidated, but I couldn’t fight the curiosity. After my first class, I was hooked. Kelley accommodates women of every age and ability level and pushes everyone to reach their goals. Not only is her bootcamp challenging and fun while delivering amazing results, it’s an incredible stress buster. Going to class week after week gave me a really positive focus, and helped me overcome challenging situations. For any girls who are stuck on cardio and don’t think weights matter, think again. This bootcamp class will transform you from the inside out, and there is no going back! Thank you Kelley!!!”
“As someone who was already in the gym at least 5-6 days a week and eating relatively healthily, I wasn’t really sure what to expect coming into bootcamp. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The workouts continue to kick my butt every week and no two workouts are ever the same. Kelley gives you all the tools you need to go hard in the gym and to make smart choices regarding nutrition. She is a constant support system and is always sharing new and interesting tips on how to stay fit and lean. After the first month I started to see my body tone up and I have so much more energy after changing my eating habits. I definitely recommend bootcamp to anyone and everyone, regardless of your current fitness level. You will always get a great workout in and have a ton of fun! Thanks for all you do Kelley!”
“Kelley, I wanted to say THANK YOU for everything that you do. I am so pumped to have lost inches- and the whole point system really helped me to stay motivated and pumped to kick ass, haha!! Im so excited we won!!!!!! I feel amazing since I have cut sugar out of my diet… I don’t even drink coffee in the morning anymore!!!!”
“Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and pushing me to do the best I can. I could not believe the results I had in 4 weeks. I lost 1.5 inches on my hips, and .5 on my waist and it sure does show in my clothes. I can wear the clothes that were just too snug before and I am psyched about it. This was truly beyond the workout I thought I would be doing and now I have something to challenge myself at home with my own workouts, with your voice in the back of my head. Thank you again for your hard work and dedication, you truly have made a difference in the way I want to take care of my body.”
“Kelley’s class is hardcore! If you wanna see results fast just take one of her four week sessions. I have already seen results from weight loss to muscle tone. Love my new abs!!! Love that I can see them again! She will keep you going at 5 am with her boundless energy and her neverending smile.”
Best class I ever took, Kelley really puts her heart and soul into this class.
“Who would have thought that working out at 5:15am could be so fun! Each day is something different, and the results can’t be beat! In just 4 weeks at boot camp with Kelley, I lost 2 pant sizes! It’s a great way to start the day. I feel so energized and have a ton of energy. I’m hooked! Sign me up for the next session!”
“I have never felt so good, being so sore. I just wanted to thank you for all of your encouragement. It’s a great class and a great bunch of girls. You are an inspiration.
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!”
“I saw results after the first couple of weeks! Noticing the difference so quickly really motivated me to keep going. Kelley keeps it interesting by making each class different. She really encourages us to push ourselves so we get stronger and stronger after each class. I never thought I would look forward to getting up so early!”
“I have been with Kelley since day one of her Bootcamp class. I was apprehensive at first about my own motivation considering the alarm goes off before 5 am three mornings a week. I was also unsure about the workout routine as I have never really taken classes, only have done cardio on my own. After one class I was ADDICTED. The hour flew by. Kelley motivates the class by continuously changing the workouts each day , blasting music and making sure you see and feel the results. She does a great job altering workouts (adding weight, taking away weight) for each fitness level during class. Kelley also frequently hands out meal plans and tips on eating right. I would recommend Kelley’s bootcamp to anyone who wants a jump start or a long-term commitment.”
“I started taking Kelley’s Boot Camp class to get in shape for my wedding. Kelley inspired me to get fit and live a healthy lifestyle. Not only is her boot camp fun and exhilarating but, Kelley’s energy and enthusiasm for what she does motivates me and makes working out fun. Thanks to Kelley’s class, I felt great on my wedding day and decided to continue on with boot camp even after the wedding was over.”
I’ve never been so happy or ever wanted to work out as much as I do now, since I’ve joined Kelley’s Bootcamp. Its by far the best thing that I’ve done for myself and my self esteem. Want to thank Kelley for being a true individual and an extremely honest and caring person.
“I have been going to Bootcamp wth Kelley Tyan off and on for about three years. Despite trying other programs I always find my way back to Kelley. Kelley is amazing and has inspired me to see beyond my limitations. I am not a size 10, 12 or 14, but that does not stop me. I have run 1/2 marathons, have done Triathlons, and always looking for the next goal to meet. Well that has happened for me…I made the decision to join Kelley’s next round of Barbells and Bikini’s and train to compete in a fitness show. I’m not in it to win it, I am in it to prove to myself and inspire others that you can do whatever you want with support, guidance and determination!”
