Successes

“For a couple years now, I have been suffering from stomach issues. No matter what I ate or where I ate (home or at a restaurant), my stomach constantly hurt. I actually never had a day where it felt normal. I finally made an appointment with a gastroenterologist and received a clean bill of health. How frustrating! I started telling Kelly about my stomach issues and she suggested I try her green juice, which I immediately turned my nose up at…but I thought, why not, it’s worth a try. After a few glasses, I noticed a huge difference in my stomach. I could actually have a meal at a restaurant without feeling like I needed to run home or suffer through a stomach ache for the next few hours. I have been successfully drinking my green juice for the last 3 months. When I miss a day or week, I notice a change in my overall wellbeing. In addition to the green juice helping my stomach, it has helped clear up my skin. I cannot thank Kelly enough for being persistent about her green juice! My stomach thanks her too.”

“Kelly is one of those rare people, whom you will remember for a long time.  When my daughter was diagnosed with a chronic health condition and was fighting to regain her health after missing six months of school, Kelly created a Pilate’s based program which helped restore her strength and overall health.  Kelly’s work went beyond the exercises: she connected with a shy teen who was in pain; she took each day as it came, pushing as necessary and resting as needed; she brought smiles, healthy recipes, and was a positive role model; she gave a glimpse of a healthier, stronger life and provided the tools and encouragement to attain it.  Happy ending (happy beginning?), my daughter is now back at school, addicted to Pilate’s, yoga, and other healthy exercise (and Kelly’s green smoothies).”

“Going to see Kelly every week while I was pregnant helped make me pain free. I had an unstable SI joint that lead to lower back and hip pain which became worse with pregnancy. In our Pilates sessions, Kelly taught me how to focus on strengthening my core muscle group to improve my flexibility and strength. Each time I finished a session, I was impressed by how great I felt. I can’t recommend Pilates enough. Kelly will lead you through exercises that improve the way you breathe, walk, sit, and give birth! I can’t go without my Pilates session.”

“Just wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful person and teacher!  As my Health Coach you have taught me to understand food and emotion, listening to what the body is saying, and incorporating more raw food into my daily diet.  Especially green juice!!  I feel better about myself and what I’m doing for my body and what I’m teaching my son.  I love your recipe book, “Homegrown,” so good!  This hasn’t been a journey just about food for me, but life and living the best I can.  Thank you for having me try foods I never have before!  It’s been a wonderful learning experience and I thank you for that!”

“I started Pilates six years ago and as a college lacrosse athlete, it is a great balance to the stress placed on my body from my sport. I believe that because of Pilates I have remained injury free, increased my flexibility, core strength, and balance. Kelly is a wonderful instructor. She is very knowledgeable, focuses on your weaknesses, and corrects your technique to gain maximum benefits.”

“After a particularly exhausting period of socializing (read “eating and drinking like nobody’s business”), I decided I would try Kelly’s 5-day detox, thinking “I can do anything for five days.”  She makes it SO easy for you, with menus, shopping lists, and DELICIOUS recipes.  (The only thing that would make it easier would be if she was your personal chef.)  Beginning on about Day 3, I felt better than I had in years, and most remarkable, I actually loved the food!  Even more remarkable, I KEPT GOING.  I’ll still indulge, but less frequently.  This has become the way I eat.  I love how I feel (much more energetic), and I love food and cooking again.  Kelly is a food/health genius!”

“Kelly’s Pilates classes are an invaluable addition to a healthy mind/heart/body lifestyle here at the beach.  Her classes are rigorous, but her teaching style is gently and soothing.  I feel really fortunate to have found her during a tumultuous time in my life.  Her classes are now an integral part of my healing process.”
