  • Ashley Larson

    Strength Circ-H.I.I.T. & Cardio and Core Instructor

    I found a love for health and fitness at a young age and it continues to play a major role in my life. I live a very active lifestyle, not only in the gym, but I also have a strong passionate for outdoor activities, including: rock climbing, biking and snowboarding. I also participated in team sports in my youth. In 2010 I became a BCRPA Personal Trainer which allowed me to work in a variety of gyms and start my own Personal Training business. On top of being a trainer, my love of fitness also brought me to instructing fitness classes. Working with the public has taught me that all bodies are different, and every individual comes with their own constraints such as injuries and/or diseases. This has spiked my passion of understanding the human body, and wished to further my education and pursue a degree in Kinesiology. I currently hold a Kinesiology Diploma, CSEP-CPT, and coaching certification. Currently continuing my education, I am a full-time Human Kinetics student here at UBCO. I work with a diverse group of clients at The Hangar Fitness Centre and look forward to meeting you in the near future.
