Started as a dancer,
now I’m here!
Hi, I’m Ashley! I’m so happy you landed here 😊
I’ve been calling Chicago home since 2013 but I’m originally from Northwest Indiana. My motto is if you work hard, stay dedicated and have a positive attitude, you can achieve anything.
Dance has been a part of my life since I was 3 – from performing at Disney World through my dance studio to dancing professionally for the Arena Football League’s Chicago Rush Adrenaline Rush Dancers. I personally discovered group fitness in college while coaching my high school dance team and thought, “wouldn’t that be fun to teach a group fitness class?”
A few years later I discovered TurboKick (by Beachbody), became a “front row diva” in class, and decided to take it to the next level and get certified. A month later I was teaching and I’ve been having a blast ever since! I had a deep connection with the energy of group fitness and started to teach various types of classes from Barre, Strength to TRX.
In 2020 when the pandemic hit, I knew I personally (mentally and physically) needed to continue teaching not only for myself, but for the community. I started going live in our private Facebook group and we continuously built our community.
Now I want to open that community to various types of classes again and let everyone experience being an ‘ashlete’!
P.S. If you’re wondering where FIT AF comes from, it is indeed a play on words. If you chuckled when you saw/heard it, I did my job! Ok, but really, we’re here for fitness and my initials are AF. This is just a reminder that fitness should be fun! So if you’re here to move, sweat and smile, you’re absolutely in the right place! Thanks for being here and I cannot wait to see you in class (whether it’s your first or your 100th)!
Enough about me, let’s talk about…
STRENGTH. ENERGY. COMMUNITY.
