As a woman with many irons in the fire, Shelby is a writer of several specialties. She prefers to write about nutrition and physical training, as these are the areas she holds certifications in. However, she also enjoys employing her knowledge of interior design, landscaping, marketing and recreational activities.
In addition to specializing in favored subjects, Shelby also specializes in search engine optimization and social media management. She has a knack for helping her clients define, retain and grow their audience, regardless of subject matter.
Touching back on the topic of health, Shelby particularly excels in writing about gluten-free, Paleo, primal and other specialized diets. She avidly follows the latest scientific research on nutrition and is intrigued by the findings on these popular topics.
Outside of writing, physical training, interior design and other subjects on which Shelby is educated, she enjoys cooking, photography, outdoor activities and gaming. Her average off-day involves yoga, HIIT, hiking, video games and time in the kitchen. Though she is not yet a certified chef, cooking is close to her heart – she enjoys inventing or honing recipes to delight friends and family.
Shelby is also an animal enthusiast. She was raised with horses, dogs, rabbits and other livestock. As (yet another) one of her side-jobs, Shelby enjoys dog sitting, dog training and horse training. She loves writing about animals almost as much as she enjoys working with them.
Shelby obtained her Physical Training and Nutritional Specialism certification first from U.S. Career Institute at age 15. She later upgraded to a certification through ACSM and is preparing to get her Group Training certification in late 2015.
Shelby began courses at AIO directly out of high school at age 15. However, she halted her studies halfway through so that she could focus on other pursuits including writing and physical training.
As a physical trainer for over a decade, fitness is one of Shelby's top writing subjects. She has written thousands of fitness articles and she has gotten hundreds of clients into shape. Whether she's creating innovative workouts, explaining individual muscle function or inspiring people to start exercising, Shelby delights her clients with her passionate knowledge of fitness.
Shelby didn't stop studying fitness when she got her certification – she's always reading about the latest findings in exercise science and scouring the internet for new workouts. She recently began teaching group fitness classes in addition to her one-on-one sessions with clients and she has found a new passion for writing to physical trainers as well as readers who want to get in shape.
In the coming years, Shelby will obtain her degree in exercise science and strive to solidify her place as an expert in the field.
Shelby has worked as a ghost blogger for over five years, specializing in topics like fitness, nutrition, cooking, travel and landscaping. She also writes blog posts on fashion, pets, technology, pop culture and more when the opportunities present themselves.
In addition to the aforementioned personal-style blog subjects, Shelby enjoys writing blog posts for company websites. She has written posts about SEO, beauty treatments, essential oils, travel, fitness and dozens of other topics to help companies gain customers by increasing their readership. This style of blog work is particularly appealing to Shelby because it allows her to combine her knowledge of SEO with her love of blogging to create effective posts.
Shelby also ran a cooking blog for three years before closing it down when she switched to a lifestyle that was incompatible with the recipes on the blog. She plans to launch a healthy living blog that will include health-food posts in the near future.
