WELLNESS COACH, INSTRUCTOR
Patty is a 200 RYT and a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. She also holds certifications in DK Body Pilates, Stages Indoor Cycling and Flight, Les Mills RPM, BodyPump and BodyStep.
Patty was not a “fitness” person until she started attending Wilson’s as a member in 2014, realizing she needed to focus on her health. She started taking a yoga class one day a week and loved how it made her feel; how much more productive she was after just one class a week. She has since become a group fitness regular and runs in her spare time.
Patty has been teaching at Wilson’s since 2015. Patty loves helping members achieve their goals. In particular she loves to motivate new members to move their body and live a healthy lifestyle. Seeing the member’s confidence build along with the strength both mentally and physically is a truly rewarding experience for her. “Each person that comes to my class is taking time out of their life to turn the focus on themselves and their health. For many that is coming at a sacrifice of time with family or other important things happening in their life. I want to provide that individual with the absolute best workout experience so that they will continue to take that time for them!”

Shelby O’Keefe is an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach (A-CFHC) with a background in motivational interviewing, strengths-based coaching, somatic bodywork and empathetic communication. Shelby believes in the power of coaching, and that all of her clients are on a path toward growth and learning. She creates a space that honors each client’s values, vision and goals. Coaching is a partnership process, and she works with her clients to create and set goals that meet their optimum vision for health and wellness.
Health coaching is an exploratory process. Shelby helps her clients bridge the gap between the desire to change and the steps needed to make the change. Through the process of coaching, Shelby provides accountability to support change and lets her clients take the reins in their lives. She does not give advice or provide a predetermined plan for how each of her clients should live their best life. Together, through small, actionable steps, clients learn to redefine their life in a way they have always dreamed.
Shelby’s coaching emphasizes a functional medicine approach that focuses on holistic health and wellness through stress management, sleep, nutrition and movement. She believes every individual is a capable, whole person who knows what is best for them, but that coaching helps them connect to their resources, values and support systems to make it happen. In addition to coaching, Shelby is a yoga and barre teacher at Wilson’s Fitness Centers in Columbia, Missouri, and has a 100-HR Trauma Sensitive Yoga Teacher certification. Outside of health coaching, she is a hiker and explorer with a deep love of learning, sustainable farming and all things related to plants.

In fact, many factors come into play to assist in finding balance, and to nourish health and happiness. Delving into all these factors are at the heart of Wellness Coaching. “I love motivating people to feel empowered and successful; to do something they didn’t think they could do, or be someone they didn’t think they could be.” She also finds it uplifting to see the camaraderie that develops within a class or training session, and the gym community.
