Ashley Greene Froehling
4th Trimester Fitness® Method Master Trainer and Co-Developer of Postpartum Recovery® Fitness
Ashley has over ten years of experience as a Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor and serves as the expert in core and pelvic floor recovery fitness for the Treasure Coast in Florida. She is passionately committed to educating women about their bodies after childbirth in her geographical area and beyond. Ashley’s fitness career began at the University of North Florida, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in Nutrition. While studying, Ashley worked as a registered yoga instructor and trained clients in strength training, plyometrics, Hatha yoga, functional fitness, and Stroller Strength®.
After the birth of her first baby, Ashley focused her work on the perinatal period which ultimately led her to become a co-developer and Master Trainer for 4th Trimester Fitness® Method. Ashley’s personal experience with chronic instability in her abdomen and spine, sustained from an injury as an infant, inspires her keen interest in helping women regain strength and stability after childbirth. It was during Ashley’s journey to healing that she took Emily‘s Postpartum Recovery® Fitness series and her eyes were opened to a new way to heal her body. The classes were essential to her healing, not only from childbirth, but also from the chronic instability that she had experienced since birth.
Ashley was the first fitness professional to become certified by 4th Trimester Fitness® Method as a Postpartum Recovery® Instructor and began teaching the series in January of 2015. Ashley is passionate about the program, because it empowers women to understand their bodies as they navigate through common postpartum issues and through the rest of their lives. Ashley is excited to serve each woman’s unique need with personalized care as she grows a community of women who support and mentor each other.
Ashley is an avid surfer, mother to two boys, and committed wife. Ashley loves God and, through her faith, to embrace women in their journey to healing.
