Ashley RowsellNew Leaf Ambassador
HMy name is Ashley Rowsell (very soon to be Klinge). I am 25 years old and I was born in Brampton Ontario but have called Fort McMurray home since I was four years old. I currently work with a local school board as a Child Care Supervisor and I am working toward my Early Childhood Development Diploma. Working with children really keeps me on my toes and active, so I love my job!!
As a child I struggled with my weight until I was about 14 to which some may say “I grew into my baby fat”. During my high school years and a little while after I was smaller until I got a 12-hour shift-work job which entailed to sitting at a desk for 12 hours and then going home and sleeping, my health and weight took a turn for the worst. I lost all motivation and became depressed with myself and what I let myself become. About 2 years ago I was introduced to IIFYM and weight training and after a few bumps in the road, and very hard work, I began to see results and didn’t want to stop!
While I still have goals to achieve, I am so happy with how far I have come and I can most definitely see a difference in myself physically, and mentally. Seeing changes in yourself can take a while, but it is important not to focus on how far you have to go, but instead to appreciate how far you’ve come. I am very excited to start my journey with New Leaf Fitness!
