Kellie 5162018.jpg

Hi my name is Kellie. I created the website Recipes For Keeps blog in 2007 to publish great recipes I have created, and have found as an adventurous eater and cook. All recipes I post will use only fresh ingredients.


I’m originally from South Carolina and have had a lifetime commitment to exercise. I have over 20 years of experience as a multi-certified Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer Yoga Teacher, and Nutrition Coach.


I currently work in the Nashville area at my home studio personal training and at the Brentwood YMCA, where I’ve been since I moved here in 2005.

Whether in the gym coaching or in the kitchen cooking so I can write blog worthy recipes, I combine my love of helping people in fitness and nutrition to continually evolve.

You can visit me at my fitness home

Bon Appetit, Cheers, Namaste!

Kellie Ruocco, CPT, PN1, Yoga Teacher
