His world is the show stage, but away from the spotlight Joey Kelly performs incredible sporting feats as a "nobody". He is the pop star with the longest staying power. He completed eight Ironman races in just twelve months - a record that no one before him had ever achieved. The sport changed his life and still drives him to the most exotic corners of the world to face the toughest competitions. From the Ultraman in Hawaii to the Sahara Desert Run, Badwater Run in Death Valley and Alaska 100-Mile Race to the "Race Across America" bike race, he has successfully completed every event to date. This is even more impressive when you consider that Joey has a full-time job as an artist, manager and family man. It is his iron will and self-discipline that allows him to accomplish things like no other. Everything with him is a matter of the head, a question of self-conquest, consistent implementation and goal-oriented action.
Joey Kelly gives a 15- to 90-minute lecture, usually 60 minutes long, about his extremely eventful life as an athlete, musician and manager of the Kelly Family (managing director in the family business for over 20 years). In this lecture he describes with many incredible photos and clips of his adventures and his impressive life path.
"NO LIMITS - How do I create my goal!!!"
Joey's motto: "You have to set a goal and then you just have to start. If there's ever a setback, it doesn't matter: you believe in your goal and just keep going." Here he demonstrates that with the appropriate energy and willpower, you can achieve your goals. Among other things, Joey Kelly has completed over 100 competitions (e.g. marathons, Ironman and desert runs).
