About Kelly Barnes

I own a business called Tri 2 B Fit in Mesa, AZ. I hobbled through Ironman Arizona and recently signed up for Ironman Lake Placid. I have been struggling to return from an injury due to major compensation patterns. In the past two years, I have learned a ton about the body and the power of the mind. The journey has made me a much better Sports Psychology Consultant and Kinesiologist.
