Athlete: Kelly Lynn Nauyokas
A little about me...
I was born in Pittsburgh, pa. I have always been a very active kid always playing outside or making up different dance routines. Growing up, I competed in tap, jazz, ballet, and toe (point). so I love the stage. I always have been artistic as well. I had this dream of writing, producing, or editing movies, or maybe one day, become an actress.
A life changing detour...
I always wanted to become known for something positive and worthwhile, so in 1999, I decided to take a great leap into the unknown...the U.S. Marines...which taught me a lot about self motivation, dedication, and determination. I miss the whole camaraderie thing too...once a marine always a marine. Physical fitness really became a huge part of my life both in and out of the corps.
Competing and where it has taken me...
I have competed for eight years. My first show was in bodybuilding in 2000, I fell in love with it. I have competed in figure and fitness since then. I am currently a personal trainer and sports nutrition specialist in Florida. I have a real passion for life and people. my other gig is as lead video editor for www.krivstudios.com. I also create websites and producing flyers and promos. It’s always been my passion! I love coming up with new ideas!
Injuries and health problems don't get in the way...
I have suffered some injuries as well as severe food and chemical intolerances....but I continue to keep on going and educating myself. I feel the best now physically and mentally than ever! I am a true activist in the health and fitness industry. Stay safe, healthy, and hungry for knowledge.
Attitude is everything. Live life to the fullest!
