Meet Ashley, our August Mom of the Month! Ashley is wife to Chris and mama to 2 year old, Wesley and 1 month old, Fritz. Ashley first found Fit4Mom through our Fit4Baby program during her first pregnancy. She started Strides as soon as she was cleared to workout and has been going strong ever since! If you ever want to Stride with Ashley, you can find her at our night and weekend classes! When Ashley isn't mom-ing she works in community outreach and public involvement for a government agency.
Ashley, we love you and can’t wait to have you back this month! Thank you for being a part of Our Village!
Tell us about in your family: Hubby- Chris 2.5 years. Kids- Wesley 2 years, Fritz- 1 month.
Current/Previous career: I work for a government agency doing community outreach and public involvement.
What was your childhood ambition? I wanted to be the next Diane Sawyer. I studied broadcasting in college and worked as a television reporter for five years.
What does motherhood mean to you? I am raising two boys and motherhood means teaching them to be kind to everyone and to leave our world better than we found it.
What is the furthest you have been away from home? I have a lot of family in Oregon so that’s the furthest.
How did you find FIT4MOM? My friend told me about Fit4Baby when I was pregnant with Wesley and I signed up. As soon as I got cleared to work out after his birth I started coming to Strides and I love it!
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? The support and encouragement these moms offer is what keeps me coming back! I like the results too!
Favorite exercise: Pushups
Proudest moment: Definitely giving birth to both boys, but I was especially proud to have a natural birth with Wesley. Women’s bodies are amazing!
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I worked at Disney World for the College Program!
