What has fitness changed in your life? I have better focus, am more disciplined, and have great energy throughout the day. If I’m having a rough day, my first instinct is to go for a run or take a class, instead of desserts or retail therapy. Exercise is so effective at making a person happier and more energized.
How would you describe your teaching style? Energetic, athletic, and a little goofy. I love to put together an eclectic playlist that includes lots of musical styles and songs with a great beat. I really try to balance motivating my fellow riders with enough cues and feedback to keep them going, but also give riders the chance to “zone in” on their own workout and enjoy the music.
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure? Frozen yogurt and boots.
Describe, in three words, how you want people to feel when they leave your class.
Joyful, energized, sweaty.
Why Revocycle? I began teaching cycling in 2003 and when the trends changed to include movements on bikes that were unsafe, I quit teaching cycling and focused on other fitness and dance formats. Revocycle was a breath of fresh air because of the focus on form, proper body mechanics, and on the high quality of the bikes. It’s no fun to get to a class and then figure out that most of the bikes are broken due to poor maintenance. I love the other instructors and the students as well, and you can’t beat the location.
As you can see, Ashley is a multi-talented movement instructor. She is also a professionally-trained opera singer and a world-famous belly dancer. Once a year or so Ashley goes out on tour with the band Beats Antique, maybe you’ve seen her in concert! Or perhaps cruising around town on her 1200cc Harley!
