Ashleigh was raised in the Berkshires, MA, in a home with very few TV channels, to which she credits the start of her active lifestyle. She grew up skiing, hiking, running and cycling, and added yoga to the mix while studying to be an actor. She moved to NYC after college to pursue her theater goals, and it is working out and keeping active that has kept her sane throughout the hustle. Though she enjoys the meditative quality of solo physical activities, she is a theater kid at heart and loves the power and energy of working within a group, which is what led her to teaching group fitness. When she is not in the gym, she keeps busy as a writer, actor and her dog's biggest fan.
What Uplifts her? A well-written script, time with family, attacking a workout, and snuggling with her pup.
Her guilty pleasure? Anything chocolate, margaritas, naps, and a steamy beach read.
