This is Why We Do What We Do...

The results our clients get speak for themselves. There is power in our science based approach to macro coaching and our online fitness training.

I found Kelli in early May 2021, and she began coaching me right after memorial weekend. As I’m writing this testimonial, Kelli has been my Macro Mom for 188 days. The pictures you see were taken on Day 1 & again on Day 185…. Don’t forget your progress pics!! Truthfully, I struggled the first month because I thought I knew more than I really did. Thankfully, Kelli was patient with me…. But she was also firm. I needed that! I needed a coach, not a friend, to get me over the hump in the beginning. After the 2nd month with Kelli, I found myself down 10lbs and celebrating my birthday! That weekend, Thanks to Kelli’s coaching, I was able to finally fit into & wear a gorgeous jumpsuit to my birthday celebration where my boyfriend proposed and MANY pictures were taken! I had never felt so happy and so confident in my body & myself… Until the day I went to try on wedding dresses! My dress I chose fit me like a glove, and I was amazed at my figure! I cried when the nice lady told me I was in a size 8 & I immediately messaged Kelli to tell her thank-you! I started with her at a size 12/14 & now I’m a size 8!! Kelli’s coaching has not only changed my life physically, but I have noticed my anxiety has gone down, I’m sleeping much better, and I now look at food as fuel…not as an emotional crutch. I believe, you won’t just lose weight & body fat with Kelli’s coaching, you also gain knowledge from her program that will allow you to live a healthy & still fun lifestyle!! Thank you, Kelli, for your guidance & for sharing your knowledge with me!

Success Story

I can’t thank Kelli enough for everything’s she’s done for me! From helping me hit my goal weight for my wedding, to helping me lose the baby weight with not just one, but two kids! I would be lying if I said it was easy, but as Kelli always says, “trust the process.” The weight with the second baby was my biggest struggle. Between it being the second, and in the middle of a pandemic, I had much more to lose than the first and it didn’t happen easy at all. I remember looking in the mirror weeks after I had my first and not feeling bad about myself, but looking at myself months after my second and not believing what my body now looked like. Thankfully I had Kelli in my back pocket and by summer time, I was confident in my skin again… and just in time beach season! Not only was I confident, but I was also doing sprint triathlons and other fun athletic activities again. This made me feel like me again, and therefore made me a better mom! She’s always checking in, holding you accountable, and adjusting things as needed so you can live a flexible, healthy lifestyle. I can not recommend Kelli enough!!

“I’m so glad I found Kelli and KMF fitness.  Kelli is an expert in her field.  Not only did she educate me on the process of macro tracking, she helped me straighten out hormone issues, restore gut health, and gain much needed knowledge surrounding diet and nutrition.  I am blown away by my results!

Through Kelli’s coaching, I have not only lost weight, but have gained lean muscle and completely transformed my body composition.  I love macro tracking because Kelli makes it easy, fun, and most importantly sustainable. Macro tracking allows me to eat all the foods I love while still allowing me to achieve the results I want. The biggest discovery for me has been that “low calories” is not the answer to weight loss.

Under Kelli’s guidance, I have added more calories to my diet, lost weight, and added lean muscle.  Kelli’s program is supportive in the weekly feedback she gives, as well as the open communication she maintains with her clients.  Kelli’s expertise surpasses her knowledge of nutrition.  She truly cares about the well being of each of her clients and provides support, information, and feedback to help you reach your goals.”

Macro Coaching

Kelli Michelle is amazing! She helped me lose 50 pounds while eating more food, no crazy restrictions, and no crazy workout regimen. Even better, she helped me remember I am more than my chronic illnesses. Kelli has helped me get more in-tune with my body, which has allowed me to get in the best shape of my adult life. Working with Kelli is hands down one of the best decisions I have made in my life.

Macro Coaching

I have zero time to research, calculate and change my workouts and macros. Kelli literally does all the footwork so I can execute for maximum results.
I went from 193lbs at 25% body fat to 194lbs at 12% body fat in 4 months. I was never hungry but every week of adherence netted massive results.
Traveling for work is my life. So tracking on the road without a scale was difficult BUT Kelli offers every resource and is always available for help and guidance.

MAcro Coaching

I made it past the first 3 months ?

Prior to working with Kelli, I had counted macros, but not in a real sustainable way. I cut out sugar and sugar substitutes so at the end of 6 weeks, I had lost 16 lbs and I felt great! But then I reintroduced sugar, and I gained it all back in another 6 weeks due to some regrettable binging =/

So here I am, about 14 weeks in, feeling my very best and learning how to eat what I want, make room for bachelorette ragers, and I almost enjoy cooking!

Kelli has been an absolute angel to me, I have learned so so so much from her!

And I’m proud of me, which is the best feeling of all!

Thank you Kelli

Macro Coaching

Working with Kelli at KMF has changed my life in so many ways.
First, her constant encouragement, personalization and maybe a few necessary drill sergeants have kept me on track!!!
Second, learning about macro tracking has increased my knowledge so that I understand what I am doing and how it will affect my body! Finally, it has helped me transform my body into something I’m proud of and has given me so much more confidence.
Thanks, Kelli!

Macro Coaching


I am soooooo excited!!!!!!
I began counting macros with you in early July 2017 largely due to the fact that my doctor told me I needed to go on a statin drug to bring my cholesterol down.

LOOK WHAT I (WE) DID IN A LITTLE OVER 3 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In addition, my BP and blood glucose have come down to normal too!!!!! Oh yeah….I have lost a fair amount of weight too…..approaching 20 lbs, putting my BMI into the NORMAL range too.
I knew I would see a difference in my numbers but I NEVER thought I would be well within the norms in such a short time WITHOUT medication. Counting macros works and I will continue to highly recommend it to EVERYONE!!!!!

I can’t wait until I see the Dr who told me I WOULDN’T be able to do it!!!!!

If this isn’t proof that counting macros REALLY works, I don’t know what is. The best part is…..I can continue and be successful for the rest of my life!!!!

Thank you, Kelli. I can’t tell you how happy I am that our paths have crossed!!!

Macro Coaching

I wanted to thank you. I had my first opportunity to go shopping this weekend; very exciting.
I could tell a huge difference in the way clothes fit. I had a couple of
strangers in the dressing room compliant me on how I look, blushing.

The store ladies helping me kept saying, “I think you need to go down a size.”

Me, “REALLY!” They were correct. January 2019 at The Loft, I was trying on 6-8 Petites and walking out because of they sort of fit, if sucked in to button but not happy on how it looked, discouraging. Saturday got 2 new outfits in 2P
and XS tops. ? Watch out a credit card, I need a new wardrobe. LOL.

About two years ago I decided to try something new with my nutrition. The picture on the left is what I looked like when I started, the right is from today. Was the journey always easy? No, but I just kept with it and listened to my coach. People told me I was crazy for doing macros, “it takes too much time”, “it’s unrealistic”, but I chose to ignore those people and stayed true to the program. When I started, I weighed 245 lbs and wore a size 24. Today I am a healthy 150 lbs and fit in a size 4. I went to the doctor today and she told me I was at a healthy weight and had a lot of lean muscle, this is a first for me.

I continue to do macros daily, with a little more flexibility and the scale is staying exactly where I want it to. I left my coach about 4 months ago and was so scared to go on my own. Kelli Michelle reassured me I would be fine and not to worry. She was right and has taught me well.

Things can be hard, but sometimes you have to choose your hard and I don’t regret the path I chose. I know I will never, ever have to worry about the latest fad diet again that probably only works for a minute and then you’re back to where you started, plus some! If you don’t know about macros I’s be happy to share the basics. Best decision I’ve ever made!!!

Kelli has been my coach on and off now for a few years. I had bounced around with a couple of coaches before stumbling upon her. I have never looked back. She met me where I was, she made my health (MENTAL & PHYSICAL) the top priority. If I ever have a question she gets back with a solid answer and if she doesn’t know she goes and finds the best source to get back to me with an answer. She is there not just as a coach to make me “look better”, she actually cares. She listens, she observes, and coaches from a place of authenticity, vulnerability, and integrity. Not only have I achieved what I want physically with Kelli, I have found a true friend and someone that I can count on to hold me accountable to my best self.

I started with Kelli Michelle Fitness almost 3 years ago. What began as a goal to get my calories up and lose a few pounds has turned into a lifelong positive approach to eating that has enabled me to look at food differently.  This is not a diet.  For me, its a system of no “off-limit foods” and learning how to fuel my body properly.  With this methodology, I have dropped weight and put on muscle. At 51 years old, I am in the best shape of my life! What a gift it is to NOT be a slave to a “diet”, food, or the scale.  What I didn’t anticipate during this process was one lesson I’ve learned.  This is acceptance.  Acceptance of me.  Don’t get me wrong…you have to put in the work!  There have been ups and downs…learning to let go of the control and enjoying the process.  I am so grateful for Kelli and the friendships I’ve made.  Kelli is the most hands-on and accessible coach out there.  She is always there to help you be the best version of YOU that you can be.  Thank you to Kelli and the KMF crew!

I’m going to be honest. I came to Kelli Michelle a skeptic. Not because I thought it wouldn’t work – it’s math. I knew I would drop weight counting macros. What I was questioning was whether or not I could lose weight while gaining strength, because being strong is my number one priority. Aesthetics are not on the top of my list, but I have always wanted to see that strength on the outside. I’ve never had that. After a lot of questions and witnessing a few fellow CrossFit friends have success, I decided to jump. I am happy with everything that has happened to my body composition and my strength. I’m continuing to PR my lifts while simultaneously seeing a lot of changes in my body. Kelli understands how to change body composition while keeping in mind athletic performance goals. I’m still on my journey… I want to see where I can go with it!


Kelli Michelle (Kelli Michelle Fitness) is the BOMB!!! I am eating more than ever while improving athletic performance and recovery. I like how Kelli Michelle encourages healthy eating but at the same time allows us to be able to choose our own foods. I don’t feel like I am on a “diet” but I am learning to make better food choices because I want the proper nutrients for my body. At the same time, I can leave room for some “flexible” foods and I don’t feel deprived. I also learned that my occasional “don’t count” days were called “binges” and with the support of Kelli Michelle, I have not had one of those episodes in a while. When I first attended Kelli Michelle Fitness Macro Tracking Seminar in October 2014, I thought I was going to be able to track on my own. Kelli Michelle has been my macro nutrition coach since January and it has made the biggest difference.  She is so motivating, encouraging and continues to be an awesome support system to help her clients reach their goals.


After I had my first baby, I was never able to lose all the baby weight. I tried everything that had worked for me in the past, but nothing would take off that extra weight without affecting my ability to nurse my baby. After baby #2 I knew I needed to try something different, and that’s when a friend referred me to KMF.  I am a very busy working mom, and feared that macro tracking would be too difficult and just one more thing to do. It was difficult at first, but after a couple weeks it became second nature. It’s so great to have the flexibility to eat the foods I want, and It’s easy to fit them in to my routine. Kelli is always quick to reply to my questions and is very helpful in daily planning. Weekly check ins with Kelli are very valuable. She always seems to know when I need encouragement and when I need tough love. I’m so thrilled with my progress and so grateful for KMF!


I was honestly a little skeptical at first, but working with Kelli is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made…  I was never fat, but had some weight I wanted to lose and no matter how little I ate or how much I worked out, I just could NOT figure out how to get it off!  After about two months of letting Kelli work her magic on me and eating what I felt like was a LOT of food [(including ice cream and pizza :)], I had dropped almost 15 pounds and was leaner than I’ve ever been!  As a CrossFit athlete, my overall performance has also gone to the next level while working with her over the past year. Kelli is the perfect mix of grace and tough love I need to keep me accountable and help me reach my goals!

I was a notorious binge eater; I would eat so much at each meal that my stomach would hurt. I am not fat by any means but I definitely LOVE food. After finding and now working with Kelli for over a year, I use macro counting to fuel myself to be in tip-top performance shape, BUT most importantly, to keep myself from overindulging when I KNOW I don’t necessarily NEED that much food. MACRO COUNTING IS THE GREATEST!!!

Kelli Michelle is a hardworking, dedicated and enthusiastic trainer.  She goes above and beyond to help her clients meet their goals.  I have seen great results from her program, I went from a size 10 to a size 2.  Kelli has taught me how to lead a healthy and nutritious lifestyle.

– Melissa Wendell –

Kelli Michelle introduced me to Flexible Dieting at a very young age of 49, when I thought I was fit and in shape. Its been about 1 year now and because of her leadership, I am 15 pounds lighter, and what an improvement in my physical appearance. I was in shape, compared to most, but not the in shape that

Kelli can take a person to. Bottom line, Im a business owner and believe in results, so if you want results in weight loss, physical appearance or simply a healthier lifestyle, Kelli Michelle is a must.

In April of 2017, I weighed 245 lbs. Although it was not my heaviest, I knew that I needed to do something to lose weight. I had heard about macros from a friend of mine, at our local gym, who recommend Kelli to me. At first, I was very skeptical of trying yet another diet. I had struggled with my weight for most of my life and had tried many different weight loss programs, that initially worked for me for a while and then I would end up gaining all the weight back, plus some. I had always been dedicated to going to the gym and getting my workout in, but I knew that my nutrition needed help. I was one of those people who thought you could out train a bad diet. Tired of being overweight and feeling unhappy about myself, I decided to give macros a try. Fast-forward to today, macros have changed my life in so many ways. I have lost a total of 95lbs. and I feel good about myself. I look at food as a source of energy and I absolutely love the flexibility of macros and that there are no food restrictions. At first, tracking macros was time consuming because weighing everything you eat takes time. The weight did not fall off overnight and it took me nearly 2 years to reach my goal weight, so if you are looking for instant gratification, this is not the lifestyle for you, but I promise you it is the healthy way to lose weight. Tracking macros has taught me patience with weight loss as well as knowing that I lost the weight in a healthy way. I have been in maintenance for about four months and I continue to track macros daily. I feel the best that I have felt in such a long time and I am glad that I took the step to try macros. Kelli is very knowledgeable about nutrition and I have learned so much from her in my journey. My life has changed because of macros and I am finally free of finding the latest diet trend and from yo-yo dieting. This is my FOREVER lifestyle change that works and I get to eat food I love and not starve myself like on other diet plans. I will forever be grateful for my journey and for finding Kelli because it has changed my life in so many positive ways.

“Thank you, Kelli!  This has been a game changer for me. I started out completely resistant, to be honest.  I didn’t know what I was getting myself into and once I dipped my toe in, I was scared and second guessed my decision but pushed through it.  I am so glad I did. This experience has reached beyond just learning about macro eating, but changing some of my unhealthy habits and forming new ones.  I’m enjoying each day a little more due to my new habits and how I feel inside.  The energy and restful sleep I’m getting is incredible.  I woke up today and just realized I haven’t slept so well in years.  People around me are noticing, not only the weight loss but my relationships are even a little better 🙂

Simply put, a game changer and such a wonderful way to start off 2023.”
