My name is Keri Brice, personal trainer and owner of KB Fitnesss in Charlotte, NC. My parents founded IRON COMPANY in 1997 which brought me to the forefront of the fitness industry from a very early age. I had a front row seat watching my Dad develop new fitness products, going to photo and video shoots, attending tradeshows, watching how a growing business is run and much more. For me, fitness and personal training is much more than just earning a living. Fitness is a passion deeply engrained in who I am. And I’m a big believer in passion being the difference between just being good and becoming our best!
I was always very active growing up participating in dance, gymnastics, soccer, tennis and cheerleading. At the age of nineteen I decided to take my passion for fitness and become a NASM certified personal trainer. Soon after getting my NASM certification, I also received my certification in TRX bodyweight training. I was now on my way to making my goals of becoming a personal trainer a reality.
I love kettlebell training and I believe the kettlebell is an incredibly versatile tool whether my clients want to lose weight, get stronger or regain their functionality. In 2020 I earned my kettlebell certification through Phil Scarito, owner of DV8 Fitness, Master Level Kettlebell Instructor and trainer to Tier 1 Spec Ops fighters.
The gold standard of physiological transformation is and always will be the barbell. I am fortunate to be coached in powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting by 6-time IPF World Powerlifting Champion, Brad Gillingham. And it is these proven techniques and tactics that I bring to my clients, in addition to other effective programs that I combine with proper nutrition, for real results. My goal is to continue my education in kettlebell training, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting and nutrition so that I can become one of the best in my field and can always offer my clients superior knowledge and real results. Empowering clients to be the best version of themselves one session at a time.
