Kelly's first experience with weights began in his own garage at the age of twelve, and by the time he was eighteen, he opened his first gym in Ennis, Texas. He never imagined that almost two decades later, he would be sharing his knowledge with corporations, schools, and fitness professionals. As a featured guest speaker on local television and radio programs, he is able to spread the truth about health and fitness to thousands.
Kelly has always loved a challenge. After winning numerous powerlifitng and bodybuilding titles (1990 Mr. Texas and 1991 Mr. USA Class Champion), his focus turned toward education. In an industry filled with "fitness experts", fad diets, and gimmick machines, Kelly wanted to expose the fallacies and share the truth with regard to health and fitness.
Relying heavily on the work and wisdom of distinguished experts in the fields of kinesiology and medicine, Kelly has taken difficult and detailed information and produced a simple and successful program. The "secret" of health and fitness is no secret at all - it is science and math. Knowledge and application transform minds, bodies and lives.
