TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF. WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO MILWAUKEE?
I’m Ashley, but my friends call me Ash. I’m a certified Personal Trainer, Coach, Model, and Entrepreneur. I love my job because I work to change lives and always help my clients look forward to results and improving their health and wellness. My hopes are that when you work out with me you always leave feeling stronger, more confident, fit and happier.
I’m also an Oklahoma born, Texas raised gal. I’ve now lived in Milwaukee 10 years and I do call Brew City my home. Why Milwaukee? You might want to grab some wine…Oh wait we don’t have that much time.
It’s a fairy tale story but here are the cliff notes: This Texas girl (that’s me) went to a wedding in August of ’07, was solo, checked out who I could flirt with and dance with. Saw this guy, I pursued him, danced the night away, made out like teenagers, last to leave wedding. Went to a hole-in-the wall bar, got my butt-kicked in air hockey, sat in his car till 5 am and talked about all of life’s important issues. Left the next day to go home, couldn’t get him out of my head, talked every day, 6 months later packed up a U-Haul and moved to Milwaukee. BEST DECISION EVER!!
WHEN YOU ARE NOT AT SPIRE, WHAT ELSE KEEPS YOU BUSY?
I am either working with my personal training clients at Vita, modeling, or working on my lifestyle brand called, fASHionably fit. This is a business I began to show my journey of living a #fashionablyfit life and to create a community to empower others to join along. I’m a trainer, entrepreneur, certified nutritional coach, fashion lover, shoe-aholic, coffee fanatic, world traveler, wife, mom to two fur babies and a strong confidant woman! If you believe in empowering others than our friendship has already begun. I saw this quote and had to slightly revamp it: “Positive people who love to help others are like good carbs, protein and fats. You simply need them in your life for good energy.” So, grab your cup of coffee or champagne (l love both) and join me and let’s live this #fASHionablyfit life together. And of course, call me Ash.
