Institute of Integrative Nutrition Blog/February 2014

2012 graduate Kelly Roberts has always understood the importance of healthy habits. Growing up, her father was a chef, her mother owned a women’s gym, and her household was a strictly junk-food- and soda-free zone.

However, it wasn’t until she enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program that she realized how she could use her healthy background and passion for wellness to create the career of her dreams. 

Read on to discover how Integrative Nutrition provided Kelly with the knowledge and inspiration to help others create a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle.


What were you doing prior to enrolling at Integrative Nutrition?

I was teaching Pilates alongside my mom at her busy Pilates studio.

What led you to explore the Health Coach Training Program?

I grew up in an extremely healthy family. No junk food, no soda, mostly whole foods all the time. My dad was a chef and my mom owner her own women's only gym till I graduated high school. Health has always been a huge part of my life. I started taking Pilates after a serious car accident left me in so much pain I could barely get out of bed most days. After getting certified in Pilates, I began teaching a lot. People would ask me how I stayed so healthy and slim, and I would share some of my homemade recipes and talk about eating well. I decided to take it to the next level so that I had a full background on what I was most passionate about, and could help make a difference in the world.

Which topics and modules were most beneficial for you?

Learning about Ayurveda was astonishing for me. It blows my mind how much our body really knows about how to heal itself if we just give it a chance. Anything with meditation blows my mind also. I don't sit still well, so this is a huge challenge for me, but I have always wanted to learn how to meditate. I love Dr. Weil. David Wolfe is great too. I love learning more about Raw Food all the time. 

What projects are you currently working on?

Well since I've graduated IIN, my world has gone into warp speed. I started my own Pilates classes on the beaches of my resort town in Maryland. While I was at IIN I was only teaching 3 classes a week, and this past summer I went up to 8 a week and had hotels and another beach resort contact me to start classes for them. My private Pilates clients doubled. I've published 2 cookbooks and a novel. I've also held countless wellness seminars at local hospitals, kids' cooking classes, and raw food demos, and worked with individual health clients. I've even had an international company seek me out to possibly re-brand their "mom-base." I'm working on a not-for-profit now, helping kids start edible schoolyards, and learn to grow and cook their own food. I am incorporating a fitness program there as well.

What makes you and your practice or product unique?

I offer the entire package. I teach people to grow their own food, why their bodies needs certain foods, and how these foods provide benefits for their health, bodies, and minds. I instruct people on how to incorporate these foods into their diets with different methods of cooking, and also offer Pilates for exercise, injury prevention, and even rehabilitation. So I offer a wellness practice that each individual can tailor to their own specific their needs.

What do you love about your work?

I love that it's different everyday and that I get to help change the lives of people that are sick, hurt, or wanting to change their lives. The best part is at the end of a session or program, when I've seen someone transform into a completely different person and they're happy and grateful. It's the best feeling in the world to know you helped some feel good again.

The Daily Times/August 2013

With two new books out and a thriving business at the beach, Kelly Roberts might be the Eastern Shore's answer to Wonder Woman.

Roberts, 35, released the cookbook "Farm Foodie Fitness" this year, and the novel "The Road to Chianti" last fall.

"The cookbook is a summer cookbook," Roberts said. "I just did 25 or 26 recipes that are pretty much farm-to-table. I'm a holistic health coach, and I do farm-to-table demos all the time. People are always asking for my recipes, so I threw something together and put it into a book, and Saltwater Media printed it for me."

Shorelife-The Daily Times/November 2012

When Kelly Hughes Roberts used to hear authors say it had taken them 10 years to complete their books, she'd wonder how.

"Now I know!" she said.

Roberts, who lives in Ocean Pines, just published her first book after four years of writing. "The Road to Chianti" is a young adult novel about two children in Tuscany. The children, ages 9 and 12, lose their parents in a devastating fire and are sent to an orphanage in the 1970s. The story, Roberts explained, is the tale of their escape from the orphanage and their journey back home to Chianti. ...
