ActiveSoul Team

Founder – Chelley Schaper

Chelley is a busy mother of two and successful businesswoman, most recently the SVP of an international insurance firm. Whether traveling or at home with her family, a healthy and active lifestyle has been a top priority. Recognizing the challenges of working out while traveling, she envisioned an app that let her find and register for a class to meet her fitness needs. This was the impetus for starting ActiveSoul!

Using her business acumen, industry knowledge, and insightful vision, she’s been the driving force in creating an innovative mobile-based fitness solution. By combining her insurance experience with passion for fitness, ActiveSoul has become a unique and invaluable solution that integrates fitness services with wellness companies.

Chelley is also passionate about children around the world and giving back, both monetarily and with her time. She dedicates her spare time to charities that support children’s health, wellness and education around the world. 10% of ActiveSoul profits are dedicated to the causes about which she cares deeply.
