Chelsey Hopkins is a certified BODYJAM, BODYPUMP, AND GRIT Les Mills instructor. She is an AFAA certified Group Fitness Instructor and an NASM certified Personal Trainer. Chelsey found her passion in fitness through dance. She started at 5 taking dance classes and grew into dancing for the Northwest Missouri State University Dance Company where she choreographed many shows. Chelsey also taught basic dance skills through advanced competition with dancers ages 3-18.  Her passion for dance combined with her love of fitness led her to BODYJAM.  BODYJAM along with other Les Mills programming helped Chelsey reach her fitness goals. She has also spent many years managing high volume Buckle stores and is now managing Lucy Activewear to combine her love of sales and fitness.
