Jada Kelly – Bikini Competitor

Jada Kelly, bikini competitor and all around fitness girl who has all the makings of a future IFBB Pro!

1. Briefly share with us your background(Education, Interests, etc.)?

I was born and raised in Southern California and the oldest of 3 girls! Dance and cheer was my exercise from elementary school through High School.

I discovered my love for fitness while I was in college, studying Sociology at UC Riverside. I needed a job and the Student Rec Center was hiring Weight Room Assistants. I started working there during my sophomore year as a glorified maintenance girl!!

My job was to sweep the floor, wipe down machines and update a monthly “fitness” bulletin board. I loved the energy of the gym and started to learn more about weight training from my boss and through my research while making the bulletin boards.

Long story short, my boss saw a passion for fitness in me before I even knew I had it. He gave me my first opportunity to be certified as a group aerobics instructor and I started teaching classes at the Rec Center.

About 6 months later, he gave me an opportunity to be certified as a personal trainer. I started training clients and haven’t stopped since!

In 2010, I decided to tackle the challenge of competing in the NPC. My life is full as I split my time hanging out with my amazing husband, teaching PE to middle schoolers, volunteering at my church and training to be the BEST competitor I can be. I love to laugh, love to cook and love to inspire others on their own fitness journey!

2. Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Competitor?

My husband is my biggest inspiration! He believes in me even when I struggle! He is awesome because he doesn’t just inspire through his words. He inspires me through his actions and I love him for that.

I am also inspired by the amazing, strong women who live out healthy lifestyles, especially Jennifer Dietrick, Amanda Latona, Missy Coles and Alicia Marie. I love how all of these women love life and live healthy at the same time! They keep me focused and determined to reach my competitive goals. Next step is earning my IFBB Pro Card!!!
