Shelly Graham

Prairieville, LA 70769

I became involved with weight training about 10 years ago. Never having been involved with sports as a child, I was not involved in fitness growing up. In 2001, my husband introduced me to weight training and I immediately fell in love with the benefits of weight training and exercising. It would be another two years before I realized the full potential of cardio, strength training, AND eating well.

After working as a Realtor for a few years, I walked into a local gym and told the director that I was ready for a career change. I had no certifications, no experience, and little direction, but I was willing to learn. The director of the gym took me in and began working with me. I learned a great deal as I shadowed the personal trainers at the gym, who had over 40 years of experience combined; teaching group exercise classes, training clients in one-on-one and semi-private sessions, and directing boot camps.

After working for Fitness in Motion for over three years, I decided that it was time to move on. I earned my personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and began picking up clients for personal training sessions and semi-private sessions. It was at this time that I decided it was time to open a personal training studio. I envisioned a gym dedicated solely to personal training, and Action Fitness was born!

    Shelly is amazing! I have an old neck injury which prevents me from heavy lifting but Shelly has trained me using various methods that have strengthened my whole body, significantly improved my neck & changed the shape of my body in a very short period of time. Her training methods make sense and are very doable for any fitness level. You will never regret working out with Shelly. ~Shari

    I have been attending fitcamp with Shelly Graham for the last year on and off. I can honestly say she puts her heart and soul into her job! She definitely has a passion for helping you with your fitness goals and it is evident through her actions and words of encourage she gives to every single client!! There just isn't enough words to describe how awesome she is!!! She pushes each client to their potential. That isnt something to be taken lightly! It just shows how attentive she is to everyone!!
    She's humble, caring, supportive, encouraging, and fun!!
    She's AWESOME!!!

    I have been working out religiously since January but just started with Shelly a couple weeks ago. In just those couple weeks I have been pushed farther than I thought I could go. She challenges me to push myself knowing that is how I will see results. Her attitude is terrific and you can definitely tell that she knows her stuff. I look forward to working more with Shelly and seeing my body change.

    I have been working out with Shelly Graham for about 8 months now attending both fit camps and one-on-one sessions. Shelly's attention to personal fitness levels as well as her supportive nature are a perfect fit for me. Shelly has helped me change the shape of my body and achieve my fitness goals. Her fit camps are challenging yet fun. Shelly will push you to reach your goals! cpk
