hear from carol and ron kline who are personal training with kelsey

Carol and Ron Kline have been members at Performance Health and Fitness for over 5 years. Carol's goals have been to build strength, increase flexibility, and improve her endurance. She trains with Kelsey twice a week and has lost over 16 pounds! She has been focusing on strength training as well as nourishing her body with nutrient dense food (and eating more!). 

Her husband, Ron Kline, has lost over 20 pounds and no longer needs to take the medication that was prescribed by his doctor within 2 months of training with Kelsey! 

These two have shown that focusing on your nutrition and fitness, can help you live a better life. We are very proud of Carol and Ron and love having them be a part of our community at Performance Health and Fitness!
