This week I’d like to highlight one of the fiercest and most adventurous ladies I know Kelly Mack. From a young age, Kelly was a confident, fireball of energy. She absolutely loves life to her core and lives each day with a vigor you can’t help but admire. She always GOES after her pursuits with a smile and rebel heart. Kelly lives in Key West, Florida and proudly refers to herself as “island people.” She truly celebrates her life and is passionate about leading kayaking tours through her adopted homeland, getting her personal training clients in dope shape, and most of all, her best friend Emilio.

When Kelly first laid eyes on Emilio, her 4-year-old rescue, it was love at first sight. And boy do they make the perfect pair!! Emilio compliments Kelly’s active lifestyle to perfection. He is obsessed with the tennis ball and swimming. Accordingly to Kelly, he can’t relax if the tennis ball is anywhere in sight! Emilio also LOVES to go paddle boarding, which is key because Kelly teaches Lazy Dog’s unique Paddle Fit classes, a complete mental and physical workout on the water. Needless to say, Emilio is the perfect island dog.

Even more astounding, Emilio is Kelly’s heart and constant companion. No matter what adversity Kelly faces, she knows that Emilio will always be right by her side. Emilio is not only there to greet her with a smile at the end of a long day, but revels in partying with her friends and family. Kelly loving says, “Emilio is the best thing that ever happened to me J.” So next time you’re down in the Florida Keys, be sure to visit with Kelly and Emilio. Not only will you have a fun island adventure, but they’ll make sure you’re rocking that beach bikini!!!
