Kelli Yapp

Kelli Yapp is a brand marketer and fitness professional based in New York City. Kelli's day-to-day is a balancing act comprised of: working on new business at MRY, a creative technology agency, teaching weekly classes at Exhale New York and Shadowbox NYC, working with clients privately as a fitness and health coach and contributing and writing lifestyle content.

Movement, and a lot of it, has always been a part of her repertoire. Kelli grew up dancing and training in a pre-professional ballet company, later shifting her focus to modern dance in college. She earned her BFA in Dance as well as her BA in Communications from the University of Michigan.

While dance was an unwavering life passion, she decided early in her college career that she wouldn’t go on to pursue it professionally. Advertising and brand marketing was ultimately what led Kelli to New York.

In her two years of living in New York, Kelli has taken on multiple careers, sported many hats and continues to be inspired by her clients and the community she's found through fitness, health and wellness.

"I do sweating as ritual, food as experience and life by way of upping. This crazy, exciting, balancing act between multiple careers and passions has fueled me to learn, give and do more. More of all the things I love."
