On today’s episode of FitFluential Radio, Kelly Olexa shares her story of how she became inspired to create the FitFluential company, what motivated her to make the fundamental changes in her life to get healthier, and her observations and insights into the health, fitness, and wellness industry.
We dive deep into her personal and business background and she explains why she feels there is a significant need to take the educational value and information in a different direction, presented to the public in a different way so that consumers of all walks of life can gain access to the real, raw information without feeling like they are stumbling or hitting a wall.
I really want everybody to know what I know, apply what I’ve learned, and change their future. ? Kelly Olexa
In This Episode You Will Learn:
- How FitFluential got started
- How Kelly became interested in the health, fitness, and wellness industry
- Why she feels that information is segmented into specific fields online and what joining them into one central location could do to impact those in need.
- What was her biggest “ah-ha!” moment
- She shares her transformation journey
- Her views on the relationship between stress and health
- The phrase, “After 30, your metabolism slows down and it’s all up hill from there” is not true!
- As humans, we always overestimate what we can accomplish in 6-months.
- We are all unique ? from our DNA to our lives ? we are all unique. What works for one person may not work for you.
- If you get your hydration right, get your sleep right, get your circadian rhythm and biology right ? it opens a world of options for you that doesn’t include excessive dieting or killing yourself at the gym.
- Your health is always going to be a journey. Do not ever give up.
Stop comparing yourself to everyone else. Commit to the long-term. ? Kelly Olexa

Open your mind. Be open and willing to listen to things and to listen to why. Most importantly, start looking at your life ? not your pant size; not comparing your looks to others. Look at your stress. Look at your job. Look at your relationships. Look at everything. Be willing to say you’re ready to change. It’s okay to be skeptical, but be open and willing to investigate and to be your own health advocate.
