Kelly has been one of our members since the very first day we opened the door. At 33 years old Kelly is an avid fitness goer who has dabbled in most forms of fitness/exercise ranging from netball & football, running, hiking and all other aspects of training. Since joining Alti2ude Kelly has tried every class from every instructor, taken advantage of solo sessions in and out of the Altitude Room and has committed herself to 2 Personal Training sessions each week to help her get the most out of herself and her evidence based program.
