Hello! My name is Ashley Trainor. Yes, that is my REAL last name - compliments of my husband Brett – we joke that I married him for his name :) We live here in Medford near Bobs. I grew up in Lynn (you know…Lynn Lynn the city of sin, you never come out the way you went in…) and Malden - my husband in Somerville and Malden. We have a 2 year old son named Brohm (pronounced Braum).
I graduated from Fitchburg State University in 2008 obtaining a BA degree with a focus in Exercise Science, Psychology and Business Admin. After college I began working at Fitness Together in Newtonville MA as a Personal Trainer. I worked my way to Assistant and then General Manager before purchasing that studio in 2012 from the then owner.
Before becoming a personal trainer, I traveled to Costa Rica where I rode horseback around an active volcano and zip lined through the Rainforest. I also lived in San Francisco for one of my college summer internships.
Growing up I played soccer and did gymnastics. I am a bit obsessed with protein and weightlifting is my favorite form of exercise. I find running to be a huge mental and physical challenge and so I am looking forward to Alex getting me to do more of it :) I am always experimenting with different forms of fitness. My most recent adventures include P90X, Crossfit, indoor floor hockey and kick boxing. I got into lifting and exercising regularly along with thinking about what I put into my body at Mikes Gym here in Medford as a Junior in high school.
My whole life I have struggled with depression and anxiety and I have found my release as well as my purpose through working with myself and others to take good care of ourselves. I am passionate about my work and want to share the benefits of an active and focused lifestyle with as many people as possible. I know that taking that initial step is not easy. I am typically high energy so feel free to tell me to relax if need be. I am excited to be here and look forward to getting to know you!
