Kelsey Martino grew up in South Jersey and was always extremely active! Started dance at a young age and has been dancing ever since! Trained in Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Ballet, Pointe and Hip Hop. She started soccer around the same time and eventually made the switch to Field Hockey! Once she got to High School she added Track to her list. With the mindset of going to school for dance, she last minuted decided to go to school for Communication Arts. She attended New York Institute of Technology in Manhattan and received her Bachelors in Fine Arts and Masters in Communication Arts by December 2014. She would attend classes at Broadway Dance Center and became the Dance Club President for a few years. Working out was a daily thing she continued and found a love for Zumba while taking a class for fun! Later, after she graduated she became certified. She then got Zumba Strong and Aqua Zumba Certified as well. She isn't certified any longer, but she has created her own Dance Jam style that many people who enjoy Zumba also LOVE! The end of 2015 she got hired at Life Time Fitness Mount Laurel as a Dance Guru and Kids Team Member. She then became a Substitute Zumba Instructor. While getting more certifications, she was hired at several gyms teaching all over South Jersey and Philly! Making appearances at events, colleges, schools and even MC'ing for special events. Her home-based gym became Crunch Fitness in Delran, New Jersey and she was hired as the Group Fitness Coordinator and Lead Instructor. She hosted many events and special classes, and also coordinated the Moorestown Location. While focusing on members she decided to take focus on herself too and got into Power Lifting. She ended up competing in one meet and won in her weight class! Her strength is incredible and there is no stopping her on learning. Members really enjoyed Kelsey's High Energy and Challenges so much that one of the members insisted that she should become a Personal Trainer; and that she did! Training clients to rehab injuries, build strength, weight loss, agility and much more; she could not stop her passion of fitness! Once Kelsey left working for a gym full time she trained clients on her own and had online clients as well. She briefly worked as a Special Education ParaEducator at a Special Needs School which she absolutely loved! And now Kelsey is based in Sarasota, Florida and is full time at The Oaks Club at their Well Fit Center. Her main goal is to help anyone and EVERYONE! This website is her way to reach out to more of you and to help with YOUR fitness goals! That's Kelstar Kardio! xoxo
