We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Sherrell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve always wanted to run my own business one day. My dreams were too big to work for coorperate america. Starting your own business can be scary. There are lots of risks, but I also knew i loved helping others achieve their fitness goals. I spent time studying fitness day in, and day out. My goal was to learn as much as i could, so i could provide the best service to my clients. I wanted to be extremely knowledgeable, so that they would trust me. Everyone has a different goal [and] different body types so i obtained certifications in every area. I spent personal time developing my body, and creating plans for others. Now here we are.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from others is my confidence. You can’t be in the fitness business wanting to help others and have no confidence in yourself. My knowledge will be the second thing that sets me apart. I have taken the time and still do to learn more about my craft daily. Whether its reading a new article or asking someone about something. You can always learn something new. No one ever knows it all. I got to where I am today by simply putting in the work. It’s more than ig posts. It’s Showing up daily for others, as well as yourself.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love food, so let’s start with Breakfast! Egg Haus is one of my favorite places [because] they have the best breakfast sandwiches. Lunch/Brunch Im going to take her to Travelers Table. Dinner, we’re definitely going to pull up to Guard and Grace. I’m taking my best friend to the best of the best. I love museums and different pop up museums such as The Color Factory. Todos Santos has the best drinks and great vibes! Now with me being a trainer, we’re going to have to do a weekend workout. It might just be going on a run at Memorial Park. Cant forget a workout while shes visiting.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My clients deserve it ALL! without them i would be nothing. They have instilled a different level of confidence in me. They encourage me to be better. Every single one of them has a different story, they all motivate me daily to be a better version of myself. I have 24 clients and they all inspire me.
