what got you into fitness
In high school my friends and I worked out to have some biceps and build strength for sports. Once I got to college, I was introduced to bodybuilding. As I watched a friend prepare for his first competition, I was in awe of what the body could do. Meeting greats like Ronnie Coleman, Kim Chizevsky-Nichols, and Chris Cormier made me an instant fan. In 1999 I began training with a purpose, taking supplements, and realizing that eating mattered.
I dove onto the competition stage where I battled for size. My love for the sport and the people continued to grow. I've competed in almost 20 shows; both regional and national level. Soon I learned that bio-medical sciences and kinesiology were the only things I liked to read about. I did some personal training while finishing up school and decided that the business scope was not what I wanted to be.
what's your Source of inspiration
My source of inspiration comes form the people around me. My wife Cheryl inspires me because she is genuine, intelligent, and helps counteract my tendency to be lazy. Sal Frisella is another person that inspires me. I relate with Sal at a personal level, down to the cars we think are cool. He motivates me through his actions to be a do-er with a strong foundation of mental fortitude.
what's your go-to cheat meal
Burgers and fries, the American classic.
what's your favorite tv show
I do watch the Batchelor because I don’t have that kind of drama in my life.
what does 'never settle' mean to you
Don’t Stop. There’s always more you can do, and there's always more that needs to be done.
what's your biggest achievement
Building my own personal training business, and becoming a husband and a father take the cake.
what keeps you going
My wife and son. I can’t let them down.
how has 1st Phorm changed your life
What stared out as helping a friend has transphormed into a way of life. Putting on the 1st Phorm logo everyday is like wearing a badge that reads: “I’m one of the good guys”.
KELLY'S FAVORITE SUPPLEMENTS
"Opti-Greens 50 is the best supplement 1st Phorm has come out with! Every single person on the planet can benefit from them because no one gets nearly enough vegetables. The benefit for gut health plays a huge roll in the functions of my entire body!"
"I love Phormula-1 because it's a highly bioavailable source of protein that helps me a ton to meet my protein demands! Protein is by far the most important macronutrient, so having something like Phormula-1 is crucial!"
"Due to the fact that I live on a low fat diet for aesthetic reasons... Full Mega is a life saver for my cellular health and inflammation!"
