Growing up in Lynnfield and graduating from Lynnfield High, Ashley was always an active member of the cheerleading, dancing and softball teams. After dedicating many years to working out in a gym, her passion for team-oriented goal achieving inevitably sparked an interest in spinning.

The rush, excitement and loud music were enough to hook her once her first ride was a success! Her commitment to achieve her personal fitness goals through spinning sparked an interest in becoming an instructor, which is something she knew she was destined to be. Ashley has once again met another goal with another accomplishment and is now Mad Dogg certified, and can't wait for you to come along and enjoy the ride with her!
