As a founding trainer of one the most popular boxing gyms in NYC, Ashley Guarrasi has made it her mission to inspire and empower others. During her fitness journey, she learned that no fighter or athlete is perfect and that realization became a foundational element in her training approach. As a trainer, Ashley empowers her clients by helping them understand that being fit isn’t about perfection but inspiration. She also believes sometimes it just feels good to punch it out.
"As an amateur boxer I had to learn how to calm down, and work through my fights. It's like facing a tough situation in life; you have to plan your next move even when you're exhausted. You have to find a way."
"I feel like anything that's thrown at me I can overcome and come out stronger."
"You're strong enough. You have a purpose. You have a voice and you decide how to use it. You can redefine yourself.”
