Ashley is originally from Michigan, but now resides in Nashville, TN. She graduated from Albion College with a B.A. in Biology with a pre-med concentration. Ashley originally wanted to be a pediatric surgeon because she loves kids and loves helping people. Instead, she found a different calling after she realized how much her very own personal trainer had changed her life. The change was not just physical, in fact, it was more mental than anything. She then decided to become a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, USA Boxing Coach and most recently a Certified Health and Wellness Coach. From her life experiences, Ashley knew she could help people on another level. Of all ages. Of all backgrounds. She wanted to share her story and show people they’re not alone in this thing called life. Fitness is so far beyond the physicality of someone. It is just as much their mind and their spirit. You can’t be healthy physically, if you’re not healthy mentally. But it wasn’t until her very own fitness journey that she realized this. Ashley understands it can very overwhelming to start working on your health and wellness. Her coaching style empowers and teaches her clients how to overcome this feeling of overwhelm through movement and mindset.
