I remember meeting Ashley Paul for the first time. I was training at a different gym in 2011 and she was an assigned client to me. At 21, she seemed quiet and unsure and definitely not the confident woman she has become over the past two years of getting to know her as her trainer, but becoming a very close friend to her as well. She was committed to changing her body and changing her eating and it took us some time of trial and error with foods and workouts to finally figure out just what her body was asking for and needed to lose the weight and becoming a healthier young woman. She was very patient but determined and I can honestly say that looking at her now she is so much stronger as a person in spirit and much more confident. Ashley Paul is the epitome of what I strive for ever client I meet. Ashley has brought so much brightness to my own life and I have learned so much from her as well. She does amazing with Pilates whether it be on the mat or the reformer and that has been her primary workout for the past 1 1/2 years. Since training with me in April 2013 at Fitness Forever, Ashley has lost 14.4 lbs. and 8.75 inches. I don't have her starting weight and measurements from when we started two years ago; but in total she has lost approximately 30lbs.
I'm so proud of you Ashley!
She has done my Body Sculpt class once a week and one day of personal training, mostly concentrating on upper body strength during our session. That combined with clean eating and eliminating dairy, which was causing inflammation in her body, has given her a new body. She is a healthy and vibrant beautiful young woman and I have no doubt that she will continue this lifestyle for the rest of her life.
Renee is such an inspiration in my life. It was back in 2011 when I first started training with her. I was 21 and on the fast track to becoming very overweight. My diet was horrible and exercising wasn’t really part of my daily routine. That has all changed now. Since training with Renee I have found a new love for clean eating and working-out. Clean eating has given me more energy and the best part it is helping me keep the weight off. When I have a workout session I have so much fun! Renee is always changing it up and I never feel bored because I know it will always be different. My favorite workout though is Pilates. Whether it be on the Pilates reformer during a workout session or during the body sculpt class. So, if you are looking to get into shape, make a life style change, and be inspired! I recommend you contact Renee. She is without question the best personal trainer a person could ask for.
