Kelsey Wells In Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "I Can't Train Without Headphones"

Here are her fitness tips.

Health and fitness influencer Kelsey Wells knows that music can push you to work harder and faster during exercise, giving workouts an edge. Wells shared a video of herself wearing blue leggings and a white bandeau top, doing a workout with dumbbells. "What music are you training to!? Sometimes you just need to lift to a really good sad song ya know? Lol. I actually listen to anything from rap or emo to broadway or classical piano— depends my mood! One thing is for SURE tho I can't train without my headphones 🥲," she captioned the post. Here's how Wells takes care of herself inside and out.


Meditation and Breakfast

Wells starts the day with mindful meditation. A typical breakfast for the trainer consists of an egg white omelet with vegetables and plant-based sausage. "Having a breakfast that is nutrient and protein-rich and contains minimally-processed foods helps give me the right energy I need to not only get through a solid weight-lifting session but also to help power me through my day," she told The Newsette. "Working out is my 'me' time – I absolutely love it. It helps to clear my head and helps me feel like my best self. I always make sure I have some protein right after my workout – a shake like my oatmeal cookie batter protein shake is a quick, easy and delicious way to refuel my muscles." 


Postpartum Fitness

Wells has good advice for women struggling with their postpartum fitness. "The best thing you can do for your body is to rest and recover during those first delicate weeks," she told Women's Fitness. "When you've got approval to exercise again, go gently and ease into this. I don't care if you're an Olympian, you cannot just jump back into what you were doing. Allow your healing to be at the forefront of your fitness priorities."


Exercise As Self-Care

Wells believes even small amounts of activities can be beneficial for health and happiness. "No matter how crazy busy my schedule is, I make time to get a workout in – even if it's just 15 minutes or a quick walk, every effort counts," she told The Newsette. "And ladies – ditch the guilt. Try not to look at exercise as an added pressure, instead, think of it as self-care. Taking the time out of your day for much-deserved 'me' time helps you to reset, care for your body, and in turn helps you to be the best version of yourself in all your other roles."


Low Impact Workouts

Wells was forced to switch to low impact workouts while healing from an injury. "I had this huge epiphany, where I realized I could train low impact yet keep my physique and get stronger; it was mind blowing how amazing I felt; my body was so happy," she told Women's Fitness. "I realized that before, I had been doing too much – I was now doing less than ever yet was feeling stronger, more energized and more alive."


Moderation Is Key

Wells enjoys a balanced diet with room for the occasional treat. "I have the biggest sweet tooth so I'll usually have dessert almost every night after dinner – whether it be what I had today (greek yogurt, granola and berries) or some fruit with almond butter," she told The Newsette. "If you are craving something sweet I don't believe in depriving yourself and having nothing, instead just make a healthier choice. Having everything in moderation is key!"
