Training for the Olympics isn’t easy, and being a mother and training for the Olympics is even harder. Based in Antioquia, Colombia, Kellys Arias has been athletic her whole life. She set her eyes on becoming an Olympic athlete at a young age, and since then, has never stopped dreaming and working towards that goal. Now, as a mother, her motivation has only increased. With every obstacle she faces, Kellys is inspired to keep pushing forward to show her daughter you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
Kellys believes we’re all mind, heart and body – and for her, technology is at the center of creating a balance between the three. She uses her phone to analyze her workouts (mind), to stay closer to her daughter (heart) and to keep up with her training (body). Her phone serves as both a communication tool and personal trainer – inspiring her to be a better version of herself everyday.
For Kellys, being both a mom and athlete has taught her the power of endurance and how it can empower her daughter to pursue her own dream.
