I am a certified personal trainer at FitClub South and FitClub West. I was certified through the American College of Sports Medicine. I’ve been involved with sports since I was able to walk, specifically baseball and basketball. Weightlifting became a part of my routine when I was about 14 and has been consistent since then. 

I keep it simple. Training does not have to be complicated. I have experience predominantly in strength and conditioning, weight loss through proper programming and nutrition, and improving mobility. The key to health and wellness is establishing and maintaining a routine that is well balanced in all of these areas. It is simple to achieve. I believe it just requires us to put one foot in front of the other, buckle down, and keep showing up. If you see me, feel free to approach me with any comments or questions you may have. I look forward to helping you pursue your fitness goals.

My passion for health and fitness was enhanced with the realization of how much better I felt when I began taking the first steps to altering my lifestyle by changing my nutrition along with consistently working out. To gain more knowledge, I started working with a personal trainer. After a few sessions, my mission to follow the path of becoming a certified personal trainer was accelerated. A desire to help others reach their fitness goals was a natural evolution. I utilize a variety of training styles to accommodate my clients needs and goals, while developing a creative and fun workout environment.

After many years as a radio announcer and copy writer, Jim reintroduced himself to regular exercise. After several MORE years of enjoying the health benefits of consistent movement, he realized he’d have to share what he learned with others. Helping people get and stay proactive with their wellness is the most meaningful contribution Jim thinks he can make. So he became a certified trainer, worked in various settings with kids and adults in Bloomington, and now strives to positively impact members’ lives here at FitClub.

My name is Michael Kelley and I am a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). My love of the gym and strength training began when my dad introduced me to weights when I was 13. Before I began lifting weights I was as thin as a rail and couldn't do a single push up. However, after my dad installed weights in the basement at my house and after a few lifting sessions in the basement I was hooked for life. I believe that regular exercise, whether or not it is done with weights is very important to living a healthy life. It can greatly improve your ability to move, which as a result will make it easier to perform everyday actions such as doing chores around the house or playing with your kids and pets. Best of all, by exercising regularly you just feel better mentally. No matter what your goals are, and no matter if it is your first time in the gym or you have been coming to the gym regularly for many years, you should never be satisfied with what you are doing and should be striving to get better every time you come through those gym doors. Small short term goals such as adding an extra 5 minutes on the treadmill or bike or doing one more rep in an exercise you did last week can go far when it comes to reaching a long term goal. 


Outside of the gym I am an avid baseball fan and love the Chicago White Sox. A former cross country and track runner at Sacred Heart Griffin High School, I was fortunate enough to have run in and to have finished my first marathon in the fall of 2013, which was also my only marathon because I have now become an avid cyclist. I graduated in the winter of 2016 from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a minor in Coaching. Outside of the gym and off of the bike my hobbies and interests include reading, playing wiffleball, and spending time with family and friends. Every January since 2016, I have participated in a medical mission trip to Nicaragua. While in Nicaragua my job is to play various games such as soccer and kickball with the kids at the clinics and I love it! I look forward to helping members at FitClub reach their fitness goals no matter how big or small they may be.

I am a mother of three, a retired disabled veteran, and a certified personal trainer and weightlifting coach with over 15 years of personal fitness experience. During my active-duty service in the United States Navy, I coached service members for over 5 years while working as a fitness leader. Since being out of the military, I had to personally work around and overcome my own limitations, including weight loss. I train individuals with physical limitations, using different methods and modalities for each to achieve their fitness goals. I also train athletes and those who want to increase muscular power, strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, and/or build muscle. I use a variety of training techniques and customize programs based on each client’s goals. I am a firm believer that nothing is given, everything is earned. I believe hard work, discipline, and dedication are the key elements to success in everything, especially in fitness. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your fitness goals.
