I have been working in the health and fitness industry for over 10 years and absolutely love helping people reach their goals and create a life and body they love. I have a wholistic approach with clients so I coach in mindset, nutrition and fitness. If you are looking for someone to just put you through a workout and send you on your way, that's not me. I put a lot of heart and passion into my clients getting to know who you are, your story, your obstacles and then help guide you on ways to train your mindset, your body and your relationship with food to create lasting results.
I love coaching individuals one-on-one in educating them on body awareness so that as we go through your workouts not only are we getting you the fit and toned body you want, but you also are learning what YOUR body needs so you can build a FIT LIFE and not just another quick fix program.
I am a huge believer that Strength training in the gym actually translates into strength training on the inside and my clients walk away with more confidence inside and out when they work with me.
I specialize in functional training, weight loss, athletic training, crossfit style training, circuit training, dumbbell workouts, at home workouts and so much more!
You can find out more about me by googling my name Ashley Drummonds :)
My favorite exercise
I love circuit training because you are combining cardio and strength into one which is the fastest way to get fit and see results. Also, any kind of compound strength training lift like the clean and jerk, deadlifts, push press, etc because these are moves that work every muscle group in the body, but every time after you do them you just always feel so strong and empowered!
My training philosophy
Fitness is about YOU. It's about doing the best you can in each workout. Listening to your body and what it needs. Seeing fitness as a tool to help strengthen and love your body. NOT a way to fix and abuse your body.
My training experience
I have worked with all ages and have experience in the traditional gym setting, crossfit gyms, at home, and all over the country. I believe that fitness is a personal experience and relationship you have with yourself as a way to learn more about your body, your needs and seeing it as a form of self-love. Strength training and respecting your body is more about what's going on in the inside then the outside. My philosophy is that our bodies are a reflection of what we believe and think about ourselves internally so when we focus on things as a whole (mind, body, soul) we will not only change our fitness we will also change our lives!

Thank you Ashley Drummonds and your kick-butt workouts that I love to hate. I am officially a size 4P! But more important than size, I feel confident and sexy. Seriously, thank you!
About to finish up month one. 8 pounds down Can't wait to see how many inches lost! Cant wait to start month 2! Bring it on!
Day 7 I did lunges and walked the beach. I will continue following the workouts. Thank you Ashley Drummonds for having accepted me in the challenge. You have changed my life for the better!
Ashley promised I'd feel great after doing the no equipment abs circuit. I think she may be fibbing. I hurt already... If I don't see a 6 pack in the morning, I just may shed a tear! All jokes aside, that was KILLER.
I'm starting week 3. And while I haven't seen a major difference on the scale, I see it and feel it all over my body. I workout with my cheerleaders 2x a week, but today's cardio HIIT really made me feel like changes are taking place. Admittedly, I was a bit naughty with food this weekend, but for the first time in the last 7 years, I feel like the Transformation program is empowering me to make the right choices for me. I don't feel chained to the scale because I know I'm changing more than a number!
l never thought my body would get to the size that it did through training and the workouts that Ashley provided. I dropped about 151bs and my body feels firm and slim all over. I feel stronger, more confident and am learning so much about my nutrition, healthy and what I am capable of through Ashley's training programs.
I was at the heaviest I had ever been in my life at 178 lbs. I was determined to lose weight and had investigated different gyms and trainers, most of which out of my price range. Then I found Ashley! She was very affordable and willing to work with my busy schedule. I started eating clean and working out with her three times a week. I had never lifted weights in at first a it had been years since I ran a mile. On one of my first workouts, I remember just walking a brisk quarter of a mile and getting winded, but in early December I ran my first 5k! I have lost 35 lbs and went from a size 12 to a size 6. Ashley has not only helped me get started working out, but she has helped me to stick to it. It's so helpful to know another person IS going to be meeting you and pushing you to what you don't think you can do. Ashley is very patient, understanding and encouraging. She mixes up each work out so I am not bored. One of my favorite things about Ashley is that she has never weighed me. She puts more emphasis on how I feel about myself and how healthy and I am. It is freeing to not be looking at the scale every day. I truly thank God for her and how she has been with me on this journey to being healthy.
l started one-on-one personal training with Ashley 22 months ago when I weighed about 230 lbs.. I remember I would breath heavy just trying to bend over to tie my shoes, I could not walk anywhere close to a mile outside without stopping for a rest every few minutes. Being in my early 50's with a young daughter, I knew I needed to make a change with my health to see my little girl grow up and for my own quality of life. Now that I have been training with Ashley I have seen amazing results! I am now in the mid 180s and still dropping weight. I RUN not walk a mile in 8:22; I can easily walk 6 miles daily now with no issues. My diet is cleaned up. My blood pressure is lower. My endurance is the highest its been in my entire life. And I look and feel great! Ashley is the main reason I turned my health around. Her training program is on point and will not use any other trainer other than her. She knows how to motivate me to give the extra effort during training. And even though it is tough and I am pushed to my limit, I feel great afterwards!
