I started training at The Right Fit with Ashton January 9th 2012. I weighed in at 376 lbs and could barely do any physical activity what so ever. I was so scared to start training with her as I have never had a personal trainer before and I never ate healthy foods. Ashton took the time to go over everything step by step with me and came up with a healthy diet that would work for me and a great work out plan. She even gave me the confidence to step up my work outs and start going to group work outs as well as boot camps. I have never been able to run in my life either but since I started at the right fit I have completed 2 5 k races with a personal best time of 37 minutes. It is now May first and I weigh in at 303 lbs for a lose of 73 lbs in just under 5 months. This is a huge turn around from my un-healthy lifestyle of weighing 376 lbs plus I just quit smoking last year. If it wasnít for Ashton at The Right Fit none of this would have happened.

"As much as I am continually active I wanted to step it up a notch and decided to hire a personal trainer. Ashton was a true find. She was able to design a program that would fit me and my weird work schedule. She continually showed me new and varied ways to use the equipment I had bought for my own home gym. She was very encouraging and continued to show me that I could do it even when I wanted to give up. I was able to get upper body strength, lose inches and maintain the courage to continue to work out and keep up my walking routine thanks to Ashton's ability to focus on me and make me feel that I can accomplish my fitness goals. Thanks Ashton!"
"Ashton has asked me to provide a testimonial and I am pleased to do so.
Ashton became my personal fitness trainer in the fall of 2008. My goals when I first met with Ashton were weight loss, increased strength and energy. Ashton developed a personalized fitness plan for me, which provided challenging yet achievable goals.
Right away I knew I would enjoy working with Ashton. She was obviously very passionate about fitness and always brought lots of energy and enthusiasm to our sessions. Ashton's genuine, easy going, friendly personality created a relaxed environment. The workouts were challenging for me, yesÖtough, but through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, Ashton helped get me through my sessions. Ashton emphasized the importance of correct form with each exercise, and my old knee injury was never a problem during our workouts. Her extensive knowledge was impressive, enabling me to appreciate and learn, little by little, the theory behind my program.
As we progressed through my program I was gradually feeling physically stronger and noticed that my mental toughness was increasing as well. Ashton motivated me to push past my perceived limits, to get results.
And I did get results! I lost weight, feel stronger and have a lot more energy. Ashton really helped me to see that I could reach my goals.
In just eight months as my personal fitness trainer, Ashton, not only helped me reach my personal fitness objectives, she helped me find a way to begin believing in myself again."
"Ashton has been the best thing to happen to me in a long time. We started out training 3 times a week, we went slowly in the beginning while she taught me the basics, and then once we got going it was a revelation.
Having never been a gym person, let alone someone who lifted weights, I couldnít believe how much I loved it. She understood from day one what my goals were and pushed me to not just meet those goals but surpass them. As of today I have lost 47lbs and gone from 38% body fat to 17%! Iíve gone from a size 16 to a size 6 and when I went on cruise this past March break I wore a bikini for the first time in my life and felt fantastic.
I canít begin to describe how much my life has changed since I started training with Ashton - Iím a different person. I have more confidence, I feel good about myself and the way I look and I now have the skills to keep myself in this place for the rest of my life. I canít begin to describe my appreciation for Ashton and what she has helped me achieve. I would recommend a personal trainer to anyone; the results I have achieved were beyond my wildest dreams!"
