Kelsey Wells in Two-Piece Workout Gear Does Suspension Strength Exercises

“Love this! You're on fire, queen!” commented fitness influencer Alexia Clark.

Kelsey Wells is launching a new workout – in her exercise clothes. In a new social media post the fitness influencer and trainer shares her new Suspension Strength with Kelsey Wells workout, which is available on the Sweat app. "Comment YES if you want a free FULL session from my new program!" she wrote in the captioned of the Instagram post. "Love this! You're on fire, queen!" commented fitness influencer Alexia Clark, while the majority of her followers commented "Yes." How does the trainer approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Holistic Approach to Nutrition

"I believe a holistic approach to nutrition is healthiest — this means focusing on balance, consistency, and including all types of food (and treats) in moderation," Kelsey wrote in a blog. "One thing that I will never do is deprive myself of any of the food groups — including desserts! Food should never be a source of guilt, and I encourage you to adopt this philosophy and see how it changes your own relationship with food," she continued. "If you are considering adjusting the way that you eat, I strongly encourage you to make small, sustainable changes. Remember, it's what you do often that counts! A restrictive diet will NOT help you to reach your health and fitness goals, and can be mentally unhealthy, too. The most important thing is that you are kind to yourself and allow yourself to nourish your body in the way that best fits into your lifestyle."


Strength Training

Kelsey is an advocate of weight lifting. "LIFTING WEIGHTS helps you build muscle, and the more muscle mass your body has, the higher your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure). Therefore the more calories your body is burning even at rest! This (accompanied with eating adequate protein) is how you (over time!!!) shift your body composition to that 'lean muscle' people talk about," she explained in one of her Instagram post.  


Her "Fave" Healthy Salad

Kelsey recently shared the recipe for her "CURRENT FAVE SALAD," she wrote in a post. "SPRING SALAD 🥗 I've had on repeat," she added. It is made with baked chicken breast ("I bake a tray and it lasts a few days!" she says. "I like to season with garlic or season salt and olive oil."), spring salad mix, Marcona almonds ("these are the BEST almonds hands down," she adds.), avocado, parmesan and feta cheeses, homemade pickled red onion, and "any vinaigrette or dressing of your choice," she says. "So filling and delicious and NUTRITIOUS."


Two Changes She Made To Her Health

Kelsey recently revealed that the most commonly asked question she gets asked is: "Are you counting macros?" She explained that "TWO SIMPLY (yet incredibly difficult) CHANGES I MADE LAST YEAR that have DRASTICALLY improved my health." The first? "I stopped wearing my Apple Watch/stopped "tracking" my HR during workouts and length/intensity of my sessions," she writes. The second? "I stopped counting/tracking ANYTHING I ate (before, even when I wasn't counting macros, I would often track protein)" she added. "BOTH of these tools were very healthy and helpful for me!! For a very long time. Please understand that I AM NOT SAYING tracking is inherently unhealthy or bad to do— that's absolutely not the case. But I started to feel familiar triggers creeping in, and I realized needed to take a break from both of these things (for my MENTAL wellbeing). Doing so has honestly been far more difficult to do than I thought, and also? FAR MORE FREEING than I ever imagined. Who knows when/if/how I will return to either of these tools in the future, but for now? I am enjoying movement more organically, and training more intuitively, than I have in a long time. I am yet again re-learning and re-affirming to myself that food is FUEL, and all the beautiful things about TRULY HEALTHY nutrition that I have learnt along my professional career and personal path. Always remember that we no longer can allow our efforts in eating or exercise to be a detriment to our MENTAL and emotional health. Be conscious of your mindset and utilize tools for your benefit— and don't be afraid to make changes when you feel things start to change."


Suspension Training

Kelsey recently added suspension training workouts to her program. What is suspension training? According to TRX, one of the most popular suspension training systems, these types of workouts:

  • Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
  • Helps build a rock-solid core
  • Increases muscular endurance
  • Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)
  • Can be set-up anywhere (gym, home, hotel or outside)
  • By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines costing thousands of dollars.
