Kelly Chivvis

Business, Project Manager, Admin Support

Kelly completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology, with a concentration of Exercise Leadership, and minored in Coaching at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. A lifelong athlete and 7 high school Varsity letter achiever, it was an easy choice for her future and passion. While in college, Kelly played for 2 years on the school’s Club Water-polo team, played in a local church softball league, coached girls’ basketball and softball at area public schools, coached a 10U AAU girls’ basketball team, ran a private softball pitching coach business, refereed high school basketball, umpired youth baseball, and worked full time to support her degree, to include Aquatics Management and opening of a newly constructed resort water park in the area. Kelly completed NBA official’s training school in a pilot program as the youngest attendee ever, and finished ahead of her elder and experienced peers in performance.

Though offered many opportunities elsewhere, Kelly loved the Shenandoah Valley and put her athletics and fitness coaching career on hold to stay put. Stumbling into an unlikely corporate opportunity in management and sales, Kelly excelled and won multiple corporate awards for her achievements, with accelerated promotions in a fortune 200 company. Athletics experience played a dramatic advantage in this success - devising game plans, execution, scouting the competition, etc.

Kelly left the corporate world in 2015 and joined forces with Nu-U Fitness and Fit for Fertility. With personal medical needs such as multiple heart conditions, joint injuries, traumatic brain injury, PCOS, Endometriosis, Cervical Cancer, and Celiac Disease, Kelly fully understands the need for fitness and proper nutrition in medical battles. With previous success in management and sales, along with education and passion of fitness, Kelly found her home in working to grow these San Antonio, TX based businesses.

Kelly is a fitness guru, multiple time marathon runner, mom, dog mom, USMC wife of a Combat Veteran, vegetable and herb gardener, and loves to host and entertain friends. In any opportunity to talk fitness/nutrition motivation and education, Kelly jumps right on it!
