This week in our final episode for season one, we meet Kelly who feels a recharged when she gets active.

Episode 8: Kelly

Kelly’s a mum of three, and like many parents, put the wellbeing of her kids before her own.

After the birth of her youngest child, Kelly realised it was time to focus on her own health. Looking after herself first, meant she could better care for her family.

“Self-love is not selfish. It’s love. So it makes me a happier person, which means I’ll be a better person to everyone around me”

Today, Kelly has a love of Pilates and is part of a netball team made up of a beautiful community of other mums from her children’s school. Not only does this benefit Kelly’s own mental and physical health, but she’s showing her children that anyone – regardless of age or ability – should get active because of how great it makes you feel.
