IT IS MY GOAL TO HELP YOU TUNE IN TO YOUR BODY, AND TO TAKE SMALL, ACTIONABLE STEPS TO ACHIEVE THE MOST HEALTHY, FIT VERSION OF YOURSELF POSSIBLE.
Hey there! I’m Ashley Vipond. Most days you can find me with my head buried in my Day Designer planner, in my Mom uniform that consists of workout pants, a tank top, and hopefully socks that match, or serenading the masses (my kiddo & Yorkie) to the musical stylings of the song “Baby Shark”. When I’m not “mommin”, you can most def find me creating workouts at home, running to Ariana Grande, and learning more about how our Mama bodies work, and how I can best learn to fuel them.
I am mostly known for my organizational skills, love of teaching others, and ability to motivate others by shooting it to them straight, no chaser. People often refer to me as a lover of all things wellness, a creator, and a good partner. I love serving the world by sharing my love of personalized fitness, and by teaching others how self-care can change their lives, how they view themselves, and the world. The things in my life that I’m the most passionate about are being a Wifey and a Mama, my spirituality journey, and being confident in the skin that I’m in.
I serve Mamas who struggle with finding simple, effective workout routines that fit their current stage of life whether that be Pre-Baby, Post- Baby, or Pregnant with Baby! These Mamas are yearning for fitness routines that fit their busy schedules, can eliminate the need for childcare, and that take into account their likes and dislikes. They run into issues such as not being able to figure out how to work exercise into their busy schedules, not seeing the benefits of a solid fitness routine, or not knowing the ins and outs of weight loss management.
The Mom’s that I love to work with are hungry, humorous, and ready to make a change (like now!) They have a burning desire to feel good in their skin, tone their muscles, shed that “mama pouch”, and to be in the best shape that they have ever been in.
am so lucky that I get to wake up every day and provide Mama’s with the tools to lead healthier and longer lives.
I was truly inspired to start Simply Fit with Ashley after I had my son, and suffered with Postpartum Depression. I went from a hyper driven, sharp, and super organized individual to someone who didn’t even want to get out of bed in the morning. After seeking professional help, I knew that I had to do something to help other Mama’s going through the same issues. Since exercise was a huge outlet for helping with my anxiety and depression, I decided I could serve others by sharing what I had learned about exercise, nutrition, and self-care with other Mamas. So, I started my journey by becoming a certified Health and Wellness Coach, and then obtained my certification for Prenatal and Postnatal fitness instruction.
If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.
I hate pumpkin spice anything (yuck!)
I was a runner for 7 years, stopped, and then picked back up post pregnancy.
I have a daily ritual of always learning one new thing per day, and I plan my learning schedule every Sunday.
Friday’s are my favorite day of the week
When I workout I go to my happy place (in Italy, on the beach, sleeping, with NO alarm set)
