MY BIZ: Ashley Olson Fitness
KNOWN FOR: College Detox 101
FROM: Punta Gorda, Florida, United States
BACKGROUND: I went to college at the University of Miami and have a Bachelors of Business Administration. I attempted graduate school a couple of time and had a TON of jobs post-graduation. I looked like a total flake, but I learned a lot about myself. I just kept taking action and moving towards what felt right…and this is where I ended up! I always thought you found your path by obsessing over it, but now I’m a fan of relaxing into things…it all works out in the end.
MY MESSAGE: As a college fitness and lifestyle expert, I teach women ages 18-25 how to be healthy in college and still have fun. I empower students by teaching them the tools they need to create a college experience that brings them health, happiness, and success.
MY PASSION: I could talk about why I’m passionate about this for days! I struggled to find balance in college. My perfectionist mindset manifested itself in some tough ways, like an eating disorder. I was so worried about being perfect that I closed myself off from a lot of experiences. Attending college is a unique time in our lives. I now know it’s possible to write your story, care for your mind and body, AND have a good time.
SOMETHING I WISH ALL WOMEN KNEW AND PRACTICED WITH THEIR HEALTH & FITNESS: I’d love to see women embrace their strength…their physical and mental strength. We are capable of amazing things when we open ourselves up to the possibilities that are out there!
