Kelsey Wells – The Dream Girl

For the uninformed and uninitiated, Kelsey Wells is an Instagram fitness celebrity with 2.5 million followers. Kelsey’s incredible physique and her story are an inspiration for all her followers.

Wells is a fitness celebrity, trainer, mom, and wife, and she’s a star in all her roles. Working with people like Kayla Itsines, Kelsey built a fitness empire for herself with her Instagram photos, videos, and inspirational quotes.


Kelsey’s beginning in the fitness world was far from typical. Wells wasn’t always a fan of exercising. While she spent her early days playing sports, working out became a chore after finishing school.

All of this was about to change when she gave birth to her son. Kelsey returned to the iron paradise and started lifting weights to combat post-partum depression. Since then, her love for fitness and her influence as an online model and coach have grown immensely.

The Change Was Almost Immediate

Training and staying in shape helped Kelsey vent her negative emotions. Seeing her physical progress and transformation was the icing on the cake. Wells took it upon herself to learn more about fitness and started researching more advanced topics about nutrition.

Soon after following a diet plan, Kelsey realized that the food she ate could greatly impact her mood and how she felt overall. As a result, she revamped her diet plan from scratch, and it’s when the biggest improvements followed.

The Best Shape Of Her Life

While following a regular training and diet plan, Wells felt better than ever and her physique improved by leaps and bounds. When Kelsey returned to weighing 140lbs (her pre-pregnancy weight), her body composition was completely different due to weight training.

Kelsey’s transformation gave her the courage to inspire others to take charge of their bodies and life. Wells opened a social media account where she started posting pictures of her transformation.

Inspiring Others

Along with her transformation pictures, Kelsey posts quotes from her fitness journey (a practice she still follows). Her follower count grew as more and more people resonated with her story and she became a star, especially amongst other mothers who face post-pregnancy depression.

It wasn’t long after this that Kelsey turned into a fitness guru. She seized the opportunity and opened her online coaching business along with other businesses. Kelsey has now turned into a successful entrepreneur and a fitness icon.

Get Fit The Kelsey Way

If you’re a digger for new workouts, make sure you give Kelsey a follow on Instagram. She posts her workouts regularly on the gram for her fans to follow. Wells relies more on strength training as compared to cardio for maintaining her toned physique.

When was the last time you saw someone who could rock both these attires so effortlessly? We are a fan of Kelsey’s and wish her the best for her future endeavors in and outside the fitness industry.
