Keli Garrett

ACE Personal Trainer


Although play and physical activity was always a part of her life growing up in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Keli Garrett did not walk into a gym for the first time until she was a freshman in college. A broadcast journalism major, she had no idea that she was about to find her real passion. Keli and her roommates soon developed a regular workout routine and a new mantra, “tight butt, skinny jeans.” It wasn’t until after she secured her degree, however, that she decided to pursue fitness as a career. After a move to San Diego with her military husband, Keli joined ACE Certified Professional Todd Durkin’s prestigious Fitness Quest 10 as an intern, and the rest is history. She now teaches boot camps and trains clients one on one in San Diego.
