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 :) I grew up in Lynn (you know…Lynn Lynn the city of sin, you never come out the way you went in…) and Malden. We have a 6 year old son named Brohm (pronounced Braum).
I graduated from Fitchburg State University obtaining a BA degree with a focus in Exercise Science, Psychology and Business Admin. I am also an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. After college I began working at Fitness Together in Newtonville as a Personal Trainer. I worked my way to Assistant and then General Manager before purchasing that studio in 2012 from the then owner. I sold that location in 2018. I purchased Fitness Together Medford in 2015.
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 – where I always felt awkward! I am a foodie and am a bit obsessed with hitting my protein numbers for the day. Weightlifting is my favorite form of exercise. I avoid running at most costs as my body strongly disagrees with it! I am always experimenting with different forms of fitness. My previous adventures include P90X, CrossFit, indoor floor hockey and kick boxing. Currently I am doing a lot of Kettle Bell get ups at the start of my lift and KB Swings at the end. 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 our bodies and minds. 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 to help with that and I look forward to getting to know you!
