Keely Knack - Awaken Front Desk Associate, Coach
Keely Knack thrives on making all types of movement and fitness practices FUN! She loves sharing her good vibes and positive energy with others! Whether she's greeting you by name at the front door, or coaching on the gymnastics floor, Keely has a special way of connecting with people and loves being part of each individual's health & happiness journey. Believing in spreading her infectious energy, you'll rarely catch her without a smile on her face, unless she's upside down in a handstand!
As a new Colorado resident since 2018, she left the grind of operating her own personal training business after 7 years to move westward in pursuit of a simpler lifestyle (if you think partner acrobatics, snowboarding, hiking, and gymnastics is simpler!)
After 20+ years training & coaching in competitive sports, Keely recognized a need for finding better work/life/mind/body balance. Throughout her 10+ years as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Keely never strayed very far from her gymnastics roots. Her first visit to Awaken Gymnastics was in 2015 when she became a Certified gymnastics Athlete and decided to shift her training focus in pursuit of fulfillment in a more specialized coaching role.
Keely is intensely inspired by ALL things that inlude intentional, playful, purposeful elements and encourages doing MORE of the things you LOVE. Whether you're working through making big life changes or you need a little extra TLC on your handstand or acrobatic coaching, Keely's contagious enthusiasm can serve you in the right direction. Her strength and willingness to jump in, spot you and explore options together will help you reach those life and fitness goals!
