Today’s post is a special HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout-out Kelly Olexa!
I can’t even begin to thank Kelly for everything she has done
to help my fellow FitFluential Ambassadors & myself!
I know most of you see me tweet #FitFluential
after a lots of my tweets; this is all thanks to Kelly & the amazing FitFluential Team!
Kelly’s extensive professional experience is a mixed blend of Sales, Marketing, Business Development and now Social Media Strategy.
She has worked for tech startups, several small to medium-sized businesses, as well as Fortune 500 organizations.
Her skilled tenacity has produced strategic partnerships with companies such as:
ConAgra, Orbitz, Travelocity, Marriott Hotels, Doubletree Hotels, Choice Hotels, Best Western, Microsoft, N.A.R., 7-ELEVEN, Valero Energy,
SBC, Exxon/Mobil, Safety-Kleen, Sally Beauty, Halliburton, H&R Block, Sprint/Nextel, Brinker International,
Carlson Restaurants, A.C.S, Lennox International, and Dean Foods among others.
In March of 2011, Kelly founded FitFluential,
a nationwide network of influential bloggers, vloggers and
influencers in the health and wellness space.
Change CAN be a good thing. When the company where Kelly was employed declared bankruptcy in October of 2008, that unexpected “time off”
provided the ideal timing for a lesson in Social Media 101.
Her blog, primarily focused on her passion for fitness and health, garnered a captive audience and rather serendipitously, p
roduced myriad opportunities to provide vlogging (video blogging/interviewing) services for other brands.
Kelly’s natural on-camera presence and charisma landed her a spot as one of 100 Ford Fiesta Agents
for the “Ford Fiesta Movement” in April 2009.
In addition, Kelly’s engagement on Twitter has resulted in over 37,000 followers,
regular placement among the “Twitter Elite” Top 100 (via Hubspot, TwitterGrader) nationally
and in the Top 25 for Chicago.
In August 2010, Kelly became a member of the Sears(R) FitStudio team (FitStudio.com),
creating weekly content and motivating others to get FIT!
In 2011, Kelly joined Polar as an ambassador for their superior Heart Rate Monitors and other fitness measurement devices.
Every day, well over 100,000 subscribers are listening to what Kelly Olexa has to say.
Brands are paying attention.

I can’t wait to spend some more time with her this summer
at the Fit Bloggers Conference in June!
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the inspirational Kelly Olexa
& thank you for all of the amazing opportunities you’ve created for me
& my fellow FitFluential Ambassadors!!
