Kelli Calabrese

Kelli Calabrese is a renowned fitness expert, business owner, international presenter, author, spokesperson, editor and mother of two preschoolers. Her passion for fitness began when Calabrese joined her first group fitness class at the age of thirteen.

The knowledge that she came from a family prone to heart disease and cancer drove Calabrese, at a young age, to make health and fitness a top priority in her life. After attaining her first fitness certification at the age of seventeen, she made the decision to reach out to others to help them to make fitness a part of their lives.

At the age of 22 Kelli had completed 3 Science degrees including an Associates in Biology, a Bachelors with High Honors in Exercise Physiology and a Masters in Cardiac Rehabilitation and Exercise Science. Since 1987, Kelli has also acquired twenty fitness and nutrition-related certifications allowing her to prescribe exercise programs for healthy adults as well as children, athletes and those with special needs and health conditions. She is certified to instruct kick boxing, SPIN, Pilates, PACE, strength training and more.

Calabrese's fitness career began in a local health club in New Jersey where she worked her way from fitness trainer and aerobic instructor, to personal trainer, director, club manager, and partner of a four-club chain. Some of her corporate fitness clients included Calvin Klein Cosmetics, Beneficial Insurance, Nabisco, Gill St. Bernards School, and The Pingry School.

Seeing a need for more qualified fitness professionals, Calabrese then opened the first school for preparing candidates for the American Council on Exercise's Personal Training exams. In 9 years, her school prepared over 3,000 students with a 90% passing rate, to become Group Fitness Instructors, Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultants, Clinical Exercise Specialists, and Personal Trainers.
