I started training with Ashley when I became pregnant with my 2nd child. I had done Pilates before with other trainers but never felt fully confident with any while pregnant until I met Ashley. She was well educated about prenatal Pilates and was extremely cautious but yet continued to encourage me. I had tough but safe workouts which I continued until I was 8.5 months pregnant. I had had a cesarean with my first child but really wanted to try natural childbirth and I know that it was the training with Ashley that allowed me to strengthen my core enough after a cesarean and during a pregnancy to in fact have a natural birth!! I am 14 months postpartum, doing handstands, and telling more and more of my friends about Ashley and her incredible enthusiasm and knowledge of the body which sets her far far apart from anyone I know. I have never felt better or had a better body than now.... 14 months postpartum after 2 children!
Ashley is so knowledgeable about the body and rehab for injuries. She also cares so much about her clients and her focus on their needs is amazing. It is such a positive experience working with her!
Honestly, I wasn’t sure that I would get enough value for the cost of the program, and I only did it because S****y was so enthusiastic about the ones she’d done in the past with you. BUT, I was wrong. The program has been helpful in numerous ways. In no particular order: 1. Motivation, pure and simple. 2. Mixed up my workout routine. 3. I am a person that likes to work out HARD. And while this program was difficult at points, it wasn’t terrible. And that was OK! Plus, the most life changing things hadn’t been the tabata or other hiit, it’s been the Pilates movements, which I haven’t done in years, hit has made a big difference in my core. I can feel my muscles more, I am a little slimmer, my pants for a little better. 4. I now have ideas for working out when my husband travels, at it’s hard to get out of the house to the gym with 2 kids. 5. This idea of carb cycling, which I think I’m going to integrate more into my meals.
Even not having completed the whole program as diligently as I was hoping to, I am so impressed with how great I feel. I am noticeably stronger and more toned! Ashley is so knowledgable and such a wealth of information. Thank you (Ashley) so much for this experience. I loved the Facebook group and how quickly you were able to respond to any questions I had.. I have such a new appreciation for Pilates and am so grateful to have found this program.
