CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR FEATURE: KYLEE KELSEY
The CHEERFIT ambassador community is filled with leaders and motivators who all share a passion for fitness, love for cheering and drive to help inspire others.
Our ambassadors share with us their personal stories and obstacles they overcome along the way. We have an amazing community of athletes who fuel their passion and determination with the CHEERFIT lifestyle.
This week, we meet Kylee – an all-star cheerleader who reminds us of some sacrifices athletes and their families make, and also why she loves being CHEERFIT strong!
We are excited to share with you our ‘Ambassador of the Week Feature’ with Kylee Kelsey!
CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
I have been an All-Star Cheerleader for 11 years. I was at GAGE in Blue Springs, MO for 8 years when I had to make the hardest decision of my cheer career to move on. I then went to Fury Athletics in Liberty, MO for one season, but it still wasn’t what I was looking for in an All-Star gym. . .so I chose to once again move on.
My mom and I looked for awhile to try and find the perfect gym that I could finish my All-Star career at, we decided on a gym called KC Cheer in Lenexa, KS which is an hour drive for us.
This was going to be a HUGE family commitment that we decided to take.
I have also constantly battled Bakers cysts on my knees and scoliosis, sometimes the pain is so bad it’s very hard to keep pushing through practice but I know I have to for my team.
