Who We Are
We are runners, all-around fitness enthusiasts, sports fanatics, and fitness professionals. With 25+ years of competitive running experience and 20+ years of strength training experience behind us, we have some pretty epic stories to share. But that’s not all…
Kelly is a NASM-Certified Personal Trainer. The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) is the most trusted name in the fitness industry and their certifications provide global credibility and recognition. Believe us, Kelly knows her stuff! But in case you needed a bit more convincing, Kelly graduated at the top of her class with a Master of Science in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology from the University of Florida. In her selected concentration, Human Performance, Kelly studied the Physiological Bases of Exercise & Sport Science, Sport Psychology, and Performance Enhancement. Additionally, she was the very first to graduate with a certificate in Integrative Strength and Conditioning Science, which included studies in Strength and Conditioning, Tactical Strength and Conditioning, Fundamentals of Corrective Exercise, and Nutritional Aspects of Human Performance. As you can very well see, Kelly has an extensive background in fitness, health, and wellness and we are sure you will benefit from her expertise!
Alayna is an RRCA Level 1 Certified Running Coach. The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) certification emphasizes the importance of intelligent, science-based training programs designed to help athletes achieve their running goals, while mitigating the risks of training-related injuries. Believe us, Alayna knows her stuff too! Again, if you need a bit more convincing, Alayna graduated at the top her class with a Master of Science in Interactive Technology and a Master of Arts in Global Business Management from the University of Alabama. How, you may ask, do these degrees relate to the fitness, health, and wellness industry!?! The curriculum at the University of Alabama challenges students to relate their coursework to their chosen industry. Not only does Alayna know the science behind running, but she has completely analyzed the fitness industry from a technological and business perspective. As you can very well see, Alayna has a strong understanding of this multibillion-dollar industry, and we are sure you will be able to take advantage of her vast knowledge.
Why Did We Start The 2fast twins® Blog?
Trust! In our technologically driven society, we are overloaded with information, and it can be difficult to sift through all the misinformation. As fitness professionals, it is our duty to our readers, followers, and current and prospective clients to provide factual, research-based fitness, health, and wellness information. Of course, we will liven up this blog with interesting (actually, we believe we said epic!) stories, but we will never step beyond the scope of our practice. We want you to trust us enough to be the only place you need to look to answer all your fitness-related questions!
If you’re anything like us (and you totally want to be, right!?!), you start the new year with new goals! As we venture into 2024, we felt it was the perfect time to launch our short series on goal setting. In the next two weeks, we are going take a deep dive into the various types of goals, the goal setting process, and how goals influence performance. Get ready to hit the ground running in 2024!
Happy Sunday and all our love! ❤️ Kelly & Alayna
