Kellie Walters was introduced to the fitness world at a young age. Her mother was a group fitness instructor and took Kellie with her to her aerobic and step classes instead of leaving her with a babysitter. Since then Kellie has become a professor of health and exercise science at Colorado State University, the director of the Adult Fitness Program at CSU and a co-founder of Smart Fit Chicks.
Kellie’s career goal is to influence others through inspiration. “Whether I’m giving a lecture to undergraduate health promotions students or writing an article for the Smart Fit Chick’s blog, I am always trying to disseminate the latest fitness and wellness information to the public.” She does this through her work, volunteering at city health fairs, department meetings and giving lectures at local hospitals.Although Kellie loves teaching others, she also likes to take care of herself. She enjoys cycling and recently discovered a love for weight training when competing in her first fitness competition. Her favorite piece of equipment when working out is the BOSU® Balance Trainer because she says it’s versatile and fun.
