How HellaBella Athletics was born…
Once upon a time in a land of corporate box gym fitness, two women met and shared the same passion for people. They both had a very successful client base that kept them busy and fulfilled in their careers. While these two women shared the same passion, they also shared the same struggle. What struggle do you ask? The struggle to change the world with exercise alone. While they had the knowledge in health, wellness and nutrition; they realized the only people they could impact were their own clients. Every day they saw people come and go through the gyms doors after intense workouts looking the same they did months and even years ago. They knew why! They just couldn’t go out and save everyone. So, they decided to do something about it! They took a leap of faith, left a cozy and safe corporate job to fulfill the dream of impacting as many lives as possible. They knew, if they could deliver the secrets and the knowledge to ALL people, that change would come.
Thus, HellaBella was born.

KELSEY – HellaBella Coach and Co-Founder
I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. Growing up, I had no idea how to take care of my body with food. I certainly didn’t want to exercise or play sports! I was content being overweight and unhappy because food comforted me and made me feel whole in a world that had hurt me.
My journey into fitness and nutrition came to me after my daughter was born over eleven years ago. When she was six weeks old I found myself reading Fitness Magazine, wishing I was one of those strong women. I decided then and there that my daughter was not going to grow up with the same limitations I put on myself as a youth and adult. I wanted to be happy and healthy. More importantly, I wanted my family to be happy and healthy. I launched head first into all things fitness. I had a new passion and soon that passion translated into a 70-pound weight loss and a happier and healthier version of me. I was excited and wanted to share this with everyone! So, I made it my career and became certified!

While I absolutely love being a trainer, it becomes so hard to watch clients I care so much about not get the results they want due to improper nutrition. I love giving advice and helping as much as I can, but it became clear to me that people need more time, attention and care! So Amy and I put our talents and passion together and created HellaBella Athletics. We love to spend time in the kitchen! It only makes sense that we join forces with our diverse backgrounds to change lives through the marriage of fitness and nutrition.
The best days are the days filled with our clients overjoyed at their progress! I know what that feels like to be stuck and to fail over and over again. I also know what it feels like to overcome and succeed! This empathy drives me daily to help those who struggle, achieve great things for themselves and their families.
AMY -HellaBella Coach and Co-Founder
Fitness & health are not only my personal passions, but have been the driving force behind my career. For the last seven years, I have been a personal trainer and coach to some of the strongest, most remarkable people. To say I love what I do would be an understatement.
When I am not working to change lives within my career, I enjoy being very active myself. I grew up playing all different sports before landing in Fitness & Bodybuilding. After competing for nearly ten years, I hung up my heels. I am currently seeking my next fitness endeavor by reaching the masses to share my love for fitness. I enjoy all the Pacific Northwest has to offer in outdoor adventures, music, culture and of course, a good beer. My friends and family are my life!
Certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the National Council of Strength and Fitness, I truly believe a healthy lifestyle centered around balanced nutrition and activity can transform a person and their outlook on life. Merging the two of these together proves to be the biggest challenge for people. I see so many struggles with this balance every single day! It’s so hard to watch people I care about struggle with something I know I have the answers to. HellaBella was born so we had an outlet to deliver those answers to those who need them.
I love what we stand for at HellaBella! I have a fierce sweet tooth, so I will find any sneaky little way to get something sweet on the menu. Rest assured, all these treats have the proper nutrition needed to fuel your body while tricking your taste buds into believing they are enjoying a decadent dessert. Kelsey on the other hand, excels at creating savory meals that rival your favorite restaurant. We love what we do and cannot wait to share it with you.
