ACE Certified Personal Trainer

 

Ashley’s wellness journey began at a very early age when she was exposed to fitness and personal training through her a mother, a Certified Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor. As a kid, she watched the positive impact her mother made on her clients’ health and happiness time and time again, truly inspiring her.   

Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Minor in Nutrition

Obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Nutritional Sciences, Ashley always believed that fitness is just one piece of the puzzle in achieving optimal health. She believes the mind and body are interconnected – the nature of the mind is reflected in the state of the body. In addition to working as a Certified Personal Trainer, Ashley has also worked in nutrition within the integrative medicine field where she developed her appreciation for a holistic, highly personalized approach to fitness programming and lifestyle change. She believes there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” workout or diet plan – each client is multi-dimensional, thus their exercise program should reflect them as a unique individual and not just the latest trends or guidelines.

Ashley is very open minded when it comes to training and believes there is a place for all types of workout modalities in the fitness arena. For her own exercise, she loves high intensity “tabata” style training, yoga, barre, and exercising outside when the New England weather cooperates!
