We are extremely grateful to have Shelly on our Fitness Council. Shelly is one of those trainers who has gone "all out" when it comes to training and overall health, having opened up her very own fitness studio in Cabot, where she serves as a personal trainer, certified Barre instructor, and a Health and Wellness consultant! As if that's not enough, she is also a part time Respiratory Therapist at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
Shelly's fitness studio, Advanced Nutrition, whose namesake is an extension of the nutrition store that her husband Mike started in Cabot over 10 years ago, also offers classes taught by other certified instructors such as Dance 2 Fit and F.I.T. Camp! In fact, Mike was also a personal trainer during college and later decided to open their nutrition business. Guess you could say it definitely runs in the family!
And speaking of running ... Shelly also recently completed her first mini triathlon. But that's not all that's in the works at Advanced Nutrition. Apparently they can also cook!
"I am actively working on opening a professional kitchen to meal prep for our clients and customers. About a year ago, I decided to make a career change and pursue my dream of helping people live a strong, healthy lifestyle. It was the best decision I’ve ever made! I love teaching others how to improve their lives with fitness! And soon, we will be able to provide quick and healthy meals to our clients to aid them in their pursuit to healthy living. Wellness is not only my profession, but it is a priority in my personal life as well. I’m proud to be a good influence to my children in keeping my family active."
Now you know why we are so grateful to have Shelly on the Fitness Council. She is one of those special people who strive to help others, all the while keeping her family a priority. Way to go Shelly!
