Client review

When I first started working with Ashley about a year ago, I was struggling to get back on the exercise wagon after a year and a half of pandemic induced laziness. I was also ~8 months out from my wedding, which finally spurred me to find a trainer and get active again. We got to know each other a bit by phone first, and by the time our first session came around she had a full google slide deck with a custom workout plan for us. I was blown away! We've somehow managed to keep that going for a whole year and I could not be happier with the results. There are the obvious things like my strength and stamina improving, but beyond that Ashley has helped the gym feel less intimidating to me. I've learned how to deadlift, use free weights, stretch more effectively, etc. And not only is she one of the loveliest, most positive and motivational people you will ever meet, but she is also SO organized. She keeps our google doc fully updated with all of our workouts so that I can repeat them at home or while traveling. We have so much fun at our sessions (even when she is torturing me with burpees) and she's always got a killer playlist to keep us moving. And if training isn't for you, consider checking out her spin classes at the Y which are also a blast! I am so glad to have found Ashley and look forward to keeping our sessions going for as long as possible!

As a former athlete, I was determined to get back in shape. I especially wanted to develop my core to avoid having back problems in the future. Ashley helped me clarify my goals and offered a program that included an evaluation/consultation followed by a customized program. Because of the distance and my work schedule, we did the workout sessions over Zoom at 6 AM. I worked out in my living room for 30 to 45 minutes/day and had a session with Ashley 1 to 2 times per week. Ashley provided a detailed workout plan for each week, a tracking spreadsheet to monitor my progress and heart rate, and refresher videos to assist with the technique between sessions. I was a little sore the first week since I had not done any formal workouts in 30 years. About 2-3 weeks into the program, I noticed my energy level had improved significantly, and I generally felt better about myself. About 4 weeks in, I noticed my arm strength improving and by the time I finished the 8 weeks I had doubled the original weights I was using for the workouts. At the end of our 8-week program Ashley provided me with a plan to continue working out that included all the exercises we had done. She also recorded a few of our workout sessions for me to refer to in the future. Ashley was always cheerful and very positive, even considering it was 5 AM her time. She was always on time and kept us to a tight schedule to make sure we finished on time. When I needed follow-up support between sessions, she was very responsive and sent the additional instructions I needed until we could have our next Zoom workout. I would highly recommend Ashley. She is a true professional, knows what she is talking about and demonstrates a real desire to help you achieve your goals. She pays attention to your technique and heart rate and makes accurate corrections to ensure you are doing everything correctly and safely.
