Check out our conversation with Ashley below.

When we last spoke to you, we spoke about your past, how you started and what was your inspiration. Tell us how has Ashley’s Fitness Party evolved since we last spoke?
The Ashley’s Fitness Party Brand has truly become my baby. My company has evolved because I have evolved personally. I have noticed as I gain more wisdom and experience as a person, my business grows as well. It was funny when I realized that my business was really just an extension of myself.

I have found that I am equally as interested in the health and wellness sector of my business as much as I am the physical fitness part. When an individual is healthy in mind and spirit, it makes getting the physical aspect under control a lot easier. I knew that mental stress was a factor in most people’s weight gain, and now I am tackling that aspect of health and wellness full on.

Ashley’s Fitness Party also has products for sale. I have launched a shoe line. These are old school, high-top sneakers, with bright A.F.P. brand colors. I am excited to have launched these shoes and add them to my line up of available products to enhance your fitness lifestyle and journey.

Lastly, the A.F.P. company is in the process of completing a new workout video! It is called Triple Fusion Fitness. Imagine a workout video that incorporates a fusion of kickboxing, weight training and dance aerobics. It is coming soon.

How do you plan to continue to evolve your business? Are you planning to expand?
I do plan to continue to expand the Ashley’s Fitness Party Brand. I have written two books since 2018 and my latest book was just released on Amazon Kindle in June 2021. The book is called “30 days of Meal Plans and Lose 2+ lbs. a week.” I wrote this book for the everyday person looking for a way to lose weight, and doesn’t know where to start.

This book has recipes, macro information, grocery shopping lists, tips, weekly challenges and more. It is the perfect compliment to a new fitness and health journey.

My other book “Take the fear out of teaching fitness classes,” is for the new fitness instructor looking to start a new brand or the seasoned instructor who needs a refresher or overhaul.

These two books are the foundation for my new webinar series “Lighter & Stronger” for Weight loss education and support and the launch of my training the teacher classes called “AFP University.”

Do you have any products that you want your fans or followers to know about?
I love my fans and followers, they are my family!

I definitely want my fans and followers to check out my shoe line, my new workout video “Triple Fusion Fitness” and my new book “30-days of Meal Plans and lose 2+ lbs. a week.”

I would love for them to check out new classes and events on my website to plan for what’s upcoming.

My class members and clients keep the movement going!

How about you personally, have you evolved as a fitness trainer/instructor since 2006, and if so, how?
I feel that I have evolved in so many ways; spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. It has been 16 years since I started Ashley’s Fitness Party and in that time I have learned so much about weight loss, stress, life, eating, diet, work-life-balance, family, and hard work.

I have used my personal interactions with my class members and personal training clients to continue to build a better brand. I have used my experiences with my young daughter, my family, my friends and my life in general to build myself as a better human being. My relationship with God also has a large impact on how I approach my business and my life. I have moral standards that I am not willing to negotiate. I do believe that is why my clients stick with me for years. My long-term business relationships are much more important to me than anything else.

Thank you so much again for sharing all of this with us. Before we go, can you share with our readers how they can connect with you, learn more or show support?
