Teaches: Prenatal Yoga, Parent & Baby Yoga
Kisti has always enjoyed including movement in her day-to-day life. Growing up she found focus and strength in professional ballet school, and in yoga and fitness classes as an adult.
Kisti discovered Fit Together (then Fit 4 Two) after her first baby was born in 2015. She enjoyed the mental and physical benefits of postpartum exercise and the sense of community that is shared in Fit Together classes. After her second baby was born in 2018 she continued taking classes, most often doing stroller fitness with a double stroller and two kids, the eldest often participating alongside. The best motivation was when her son told her she was “as strong as Daniel Tiger’s mama, grrrr!” after class one day!
Completing her Manitoba Fitness Council Yoga Fitness Leader training seemed like a natural extension of her passion for fitness, yoga and meditation. As a birth and postpartum doula, Kisti likes to include elements from Spinning Babies that can encourage an optimal fetal position for labour in prenatal classes, and other more physically ‘closing’ elements in postpartum classes. Participants can always expect some meditation in her classes as well!
Outside of fitness, Kisti enjoys spending her time with her three young kids, cooking healthy food, and learning new things in books and online classes.
Teaches: Prenatal Pilates, Mom & Baby Pilates, Stroller Fitness
Kelly got certified as a personal trainer through ACE in 2019 and completed her Manitoba Fitness Council Pilates certification in 2021.
Her quest to get people moving has re-united her with Fit Together after she took the classes as a participant back when her kids were babies. Kelly says “Exercise has always brought me closer to myself and grounded me. Through the good and the bad, our bodies are the only place we have to live. I feel alive when I know I’m helping others get to that place for themselves too. It’s pretty amazing to have come full circle now teaching with this team and seeing women gain their confidence and work towards stronger versions of themselves”.
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys Muay Thai boxing, running, biking with her kids, and swimming which she only learned to do at 35 years old. She earned her first trifecta from a Spartan race she did in Thailand and hopes to do another one in Canada one day.
Kelly believes the curveballs that go along with pregnancy, motherhood and parenting teach you that you can get through anything …women are amazing. Her friendly and fun-loving style makes her classes a joy to attend. Kelly is happy to be on this journey with you!
