iFit Trainer Highlight: Kelsey Sheahan
Kelsey Sheahan is a personal trainer based in Denver, Colorado. In addition to the workouts she leads with iFit, Kelsey owns a personal training studio called Sweat Den, where she works one-on-one with women.
While she attended Colorado State University, Kelsey cheered for the Denver Broncos and danced for the Armed Forces Entertainment Tour. Her love for movement led her to a diverse career in fitness. As a certified Pilates, barre, TRX, and pre- and post-natal group fitness instructor, Kelsey uses her experience and knowledge to motivate others to reach their fitness goals.
We caught up with Kelsey and asked her a few questions, so you can get to know her better!
What’s your all-time favorite exercise?
If someone said I could only do ONE exercise the rest of my life, it would have to be step-ups. I try to incorporate them into almost every workout. I love to mix them up by adding dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, kicks, a BOSU ball—you name it. I even do them in my Pilates workouts. Give me something to step on and I’ll give you a killer step-up variation!
What motto do you live by?
Each day is a bonus.
What’s your favorite memory from an iFit trip?
If you’ve done my Adriatic Sea Interval Running Workout Series, you know that I’m obsessed with “Game of Thrones.” One of my favorite memories was being able to walk up the Jesuit Staircase in Dubrovnik, Croatia. This staircase was where the most iconic scene in season five, “Walk of Shame,” was filmed.

What’s your greatest accomplishment?
Hands down, becoming an iFit Trainer. I have worked in the fitness industry for over a decade, and becoming an iFit Trainer is an absolute dream come true. I have only ever wanted to help, motivate, and inspire people. I have always said, if I can encourage even one person, then I have done my job. Now, to be given the opportunity to work with more than a million iFit members all over the world is just such a huge accomplishment and something I will forever be grateful for.
Are you an early bird or night owl?
Early to bed, early to rise. My early morning motto is: Pop up! Resist the urge to hit snooze and just pop up.
What’s your favorite treat?
Salty: I’d have to go with Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips.
Sweet: Red Vines!
What piece of advice would you give to beginners?
Embrace being a “beginner.” We have all been beginners at something at some point in our lives. It’s so important to honor where you are and focus on the process, not the destination. Just like my life motto: Each day is a bonus. I look at workouts the same way: Every workout is a bonus. Take it one exercise, one workout, one day at a time, and don’t forget to celebrate every little victory.
