Hi! I’m Kalene Walsh
I’ve been a Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition Specialist since 2004. My career in the fitness industry has spanned the east coast from LifeStyles in Florida to Equinox in Boston to ultimately starting KW Fitness in NYC/NJ to now Ponte Vedra.
My fitness story proves that one person can change your whole life! I was majoring in Public Relations at Northeastern University when Rolando Amorim, a highly respected and decorated natural bodybuilder and Personal Trainer convinced me to compete in a bodybuilding show. At that time, I was a typical college kid, eating what typical college kids eat. I only did cardio, because the weight room intimidated me. Fast forward months later and I stepped on stage at New England Naturals and placed 2nd Overall and 1st Best Poser. I was hooked! I became passionate about helping people not only look their best, but FEEL their best. It feels good to hear a client say, “I lost 3lbs this week,” but it feels AMAZING to hear a client say, “I biked 12 miles with my kids today and felt so strong!” I obtained my first certification before graduating Northeastern and dove head first into the world of health & fitness!

Kalene is EVERYTHING. She is a kick-ass trainer, a friend, a therapist, and everything in between. She knows your potential more than you will. She’ll know when to support you and when to push you. She challenges you to be the best version of yourself and letting her down is never an option (because she’s that good!)

I never thought of myself as someone who would hire a personal trainer, but reaching out to Kalene one day in December 2019 was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my body, mind, and happiness. From day one, Kalene has been so kind, encouraging, professional, and a total badass at training! She tailors my workouts exactly to my body and strength/ability levels, and it blows my mind that she hasn’t repeated a single workout move for me yet.
We began working together when I was cleared for postpartum exercise, 6 weeks after my first pregnancy. Her thoughtful approach was tailored specifically to my needs and my (ever changing) ability and each session provided a brand new set of uniquely planned and intricately timed workouts.
Kalene proved from our first session she was a true professional and knows her stuff! She tested me along the way, pushing me to reach new goals and truly helped me find an inner confidence I never knew I had. I have loved working with her so much that I couldn’t quit after my wedding – which was now almost 2 years ago! Throughout the pandemic Kalene continued to adapt and support her clients. If you are looking for a trainer and expert in this field, look no further!
I can’t recommend Kalene highly enough! She whipped me back into shape after having my second and third babies. But more importantly, she changed my entire outlook on exercise and a healthy lifestyle by making training a fun experience I look forward to every week. She is professional, knowledgeable, and personalizes every workout to her clients needs (whether targeting your “tough” spots or helping you safely work through injuries). She’s also always there with nutrition and other health tips, and a good laugh when you need it as well.
Before I met Kalene, I was so intimidated by personal training but she’s shown me what a good trainer can do, and given me so much more confidence in myself and my own strengths. She’s your consummate champion cheering you on through each exercise, pushes you but always puts your health first, and especially during the pandemic, the hours spent with her each week are usually the best parts of my day!
I always end our sessions dripping in sweat and buzzing from the biggest endorphin high. I’ve watched my body completely transform to become the most toned and fit I’ve ever been. Plus, Kalene is so personable, I truly consider her to be one of my dear friends! I couldn’t recommend her more.
