From using a walker to becoming a warrior…In 2011, Ashley Shaw had a flourishing career as a Deputy Sherriff in the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department. She was being groomed for the SWAT Team and receiving a huge promotion. While driving to a team meeting, a speeding car ran into her and ended her career. She had to have neck and back surgery; she could barely walk and used a walker. Doctors told her that she would never be able to do much more than walk.
Ashley was challenged by this and determined to prove those doctors wrong. After she taught herself to walk again, and despite chronic pain, struggles with depression and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, Ashley transformed her own life and AshFit Solutions was formed.
Ashley is more than just a certified personal trainer. With a degree in Psychology and an MBA, she is also life coach, fight trainer, nutrition coach, lifeguard/swim instructor, motivational speaker, and best-selling author. She believes being fit includes the Mind, Body, and Soul. They are all interconnected. Ashley really gets to know her clients, what makes them tick, and taps into their experiences to get the best out of them. Ashley can relate to her clients. Having been through chronic pain, trauma, being chubby and teased about looks as a kid, Ashley says she IS the person she trains. Her clients know if SHE can do it, so can THEY!
As far as nutrition goes, Ashley is co-partner/owner with her husband in the meal prep business, Good to Go Food Prep, which delivers fresh, healthy meals. With their team based out of Orange County, they make it a priority to give back to the community by hosting their own food drives and working with the unhoused and relocation shelters.
Ashley is proof that you can defy the odds, overcome many obstacles, and do whatever you set your mind up to do. She says it’s never too late to make a healthy lifestyle shift and it’s not as hard as you think.
Ashley is an inspiration to us all! She wants to help the healthy lifestyle movement grow. If you are interested in creating a healthy life (physically, mentally, and emotionally), know it’s never too late to overcome any personal challenges and become Ash Fit too.
