Shelly Price, 44, has a normal job and is a mother, but she dons her special uniform to compete on the All Stars Roster of the Derby City Roller Girls team. With nine years and counting, Shelly uses the team competition as motivation to fit in her gym routine at Louisville Athletic Club, Taylorsville Road. (She gives a shout-out to her instructors for the past six years, Amy, Lisa, Betty, and Diane for her favorite classes — butts and guts, dance fitness, barre, and kickboxing).
