What She Gained

Jul 7, 2022

Have you struggled to feel like you have autonomy within your body? Especially when it comes to fitness? In today’s episode, I had the honor of chatting with Kelsey Ellis all about reclaiming body autonomy in fitness. When I came across Kelsey on social media, I was instantly drawn to her fun and authentic approach to health and fitness!

Kelsey Ellis (she/her) is an award-winning, body-positive Health and Fitness Expert based in Vancouver, Canada. She is both a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Personal Trainer on a mission to empower individuals to take the shame out of their wellness game through letting go of self-judgment, practicing intuitive eating, and honouring joyful movement. Kelsey teaches group coaching programs on intuitive eating, helping clients learn how to trust themselves around food again, let go of destructive dieting behaviour and make peace with food and their bodies once and for all. She also teaches body-positive fitness classes both live through her Patreon platform and via her YouTube channel ‘Healthy With Kelsey’. Her classes center physical movement from a wellness-centered approach and she encourages her audience to move their bodies in a way that feels best for them!
