Kelsey Davidson embodies the spirit of a trusted tutor, coach, counsellor and mentor in everything she does.

Since 2014, she has run Alive Fitness, a fitness and empowerment program for women.

In 2018, she created Alive, Strong and Fearless, which is a program specially designed for girls ages eight to 15 that promotes empowerment and personal growth. The program helps build confidence through fitness activities and journaling in a safe, fun environment.

“We are branching out to give all girls the opportunity to be empowered and to strengthen their voice,” says Davidson.

“When I have the opportunity to show a woman or a girl that she can strengthen her voice while strengthening her body – and thus become limitless in whatever she sets out to accomplish – I’m busting out my happy dance!”

The programs are 12 weeks long with 40 minutes of fitness, including yoga and obstacle courses, and 20 minutes of discussion and empowerment.

“Kelsey’s best qualities are her positivity towards every situation, dedication to her family and everyone that comes into contact with her, and her passion for the empowerment of girls and women through her many programs,” says Marnie Smith, Davidson’s close friend and former colleague.

Davidson is also involved with Quinn’s Legacy Society and Airdrie BMX. In 2018, she organized Airdrie’s first breast cancer run, which evolved into Airdrie’s first CIBC Run for the Cure in 2019.
