I have used Kelly’s teachings in my work at the YMCA for nearly 10 years. Over that time, I’ve seen him work with new gym members, train staff, and give talks on motivation. He understands the mental side of the struggle to stay active as well as anyone. More than that, he empowers people to build a routine that actually fits them. If you are struggling with your motivation to be more active, Kelly is your guy. His ideas are simple, easy to implement, and very empowering.

Kelly’s field research has advanced our understanding of how our perception of how we want to exercise feel can impact our health and performance. His interdisciplinary knowledge provides him with an expertise and empathy that make Feel Like It a highly effective contribution to today’s fitness discourse. It is truly inspiring.

For our monthly book club pick I chose Feel Like It. We had good conversations about the book and we realized that being active is not just about “going to the gym”. We had a lot of fun picking our Mighty Motives and chatted about how they were all different. On a personal level, I can say that I now see working out as less of a chore and more something that I enjoy because it changed my focus.
