Fitness Competitor - Kelly Ryan

Fitness Competitor - Kelly Ryan
Kelly Ryan (b. July 10, 1972 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is a IFBB professional fitness competitor.

Kelly Ryan got an early start in her fitness career when, at age eight, she began to train in gymnastics. This would later serve as a foundation for other athletic activities she would become involved with in high school, such as cheerleading and basketball. After high school Kelly decided to pursue journalism at the University of South Carolina. While studying for her degree in journalism she also worked as a choreographer, which would prove very useful in her decision to become a top fitness athlete. Her first fitness competition was the NPC South Carolina State in 1995, where she placed first.

She would eventually end up winning eight fitness competitions. Her background and presence in fitness contests have made her a familiar face at fitness expositions as well as in fitness magazines.

Married to body builder, Craig Titus.

The couple are awaiting trial in Nevada on charges in the murder of their live-in assistant, Melissa James. James was alleged to have had an affair with Titus. Titus and Ryan are being tried together in the case scheduled to go to court in January of 2007. A prosecutor alleged in open court that Titus was part of a plot to murder three witnesses due to testify in the case. No charges have been filed and Titus’ defense lawyer says he doesn’t think that there is enough evidence for charges in the allegation.

The trial of co-defendant Anthony Gross on arson and accessory to murder charges was separated from the murder trial for Titus and Ryan.
