  BIO | COMPETITION HISTORY

Born in Minneapolis, Kelly Ryan’s rise atop the Fitness world started at age 8 when she began to develop her craft as a gymnast under the tutelage of renowned Gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi. Kelly's skill as an elite-level gymnast served as the foundation for athletic achievement in Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Dance and Cheerleading.

Kelly’s achievements were not limited to athletics. She earned a Journalism degree from the University of South Carolina where she graduated on the University’s Deans List.

Since age 20, Kelly has been choreographing dance routines for many of the world’s leading fitness athletes and performers. With several appearances on network television and major magazine covers, Kelly has emerged as one of the fitness industry's most recognizable and marketable personalities.

Kelly has already collected 8 professional championships, which makes her one of the most decorated professional fitness athletes in the history of her sport. Currently considered the leading contender for the prestigious Fitness Olympia title, Kelly maintains a genuine commitment to various charities, including the Special Olympics, an organization that Kelly cares deeply about. She explains, “The Special Olympics embodies all of life’s true beauty; a true celebration of perseverance, dedication and achievement. We can all learn a lot from these courageous athletes.”
