Coach Ashley has been in the health and fitness industry for over 10 years, beginning back in college studying health and human performance. After receiving her masters degree in 2011 she joined the team at a local fitness facility where she worked for five years. She is in the process of studying for her OPEX CCP-Level 1, a year-long educational journey through five separate modules which caps off with a peer-reviewed final project. She also holds several certifications from other fitness organizations. Transitioning to OPEX has been transformative, both personally and professionally.
After being a CrossFit athlete for years herself, Ashley experienced some of the negative side effects that can go along with high-intensity exercise: nagging injuries, fatigue, unwanted weight gain, hormonal imbalance, acne and inability to recover from stress. Since switching to OPEX individual design fitness she has been able to combat many of these symptoms, regain balance, and loves her personal fitness journey once again. But her true passion lies with helping others on their fitness path,
“Through the individual design process I am able to connect with my clients on a much deeper level, which allows me to create a fitness plan that fits their lifestyle. People are so busy and have a lot of stress in their lives and they often get lost in the fitness world. I love to help people discover what really makes them tick when it comes to fitness. I love bringing truth to fitness, lifestyle, and nutrition.”
Ashley is currently taking on new clients for 2018.
