Welcome to another episode of the Women Over 50, Life Redesigned! Today, we’re sitting down with Kelly Howard, the creator of Fit is Freedom podcast, courses, events, and the Fit is Freedom Experiences. For over 20 years Kelly has been connecting women to freedom and personal empowerment through fitness consistency, a wellness mindset, and adventure and has changed thousands of lives through Fit is Freedom. As the former owner of Bayou City Outdoors, the largest outdoor activity and social club of its kind and the creator of the FOX Outdoor Adventure Series, she’s helped thousands of people on hiking, biking, and kayaking adventures worldwide. She currently calls Houston, Texas her home, but can frequently be found on rivers and trails across the globe.
In this episode, Kelly and I talk about what Fitness Freedom is and why women over 50 are so good at adventures, lifestyle changes, and achieving fitness goals. Make sure to tune util the end because we also talked about the importance of choosing a fitness activity that you enjoy the most to make it more sustainable. Let’s dive in!

“If you can't take care of yourself, if you don't feel good, if you aren't in that good headspace, then you're no good to whether it's your business or your family or your grandkids or your kids. You just know you're not helpful.” - Kelly Howard
“It is all these little teeny, weeny things, teeny, weeny steps, that when you figure out that movement is the domino that's going to make everything better, then it gets easier.” - Kelly Howard
“One thing is that I think that we really need things to look forward to. If we have something to look forward to, then life is more fun, we are more motivated. We're more driven.” - Kelly Howard
