I'm Ashley Keller
I am an unashamed follower of Jesus. I believe God's Word is sufficient for all instruction on living a life pleasing to God. On my own I will never be "enough" and that's beautiful, and why I run to the cross. Since I seek to make our Lord the center of my life, everything else flows from that relationship of unconditional love and unapologetic truth. I am married to the man of my dreams (military spouse - we have been through 9 deployments) and mother of 4. I know without a shred of a doubt that GlowBodyPT is where God has called me to serve and I don't take you being here lightly. I put everything I have into what I do and sincerely care about helping you rock your fitness, health, and confidence as a woman.
I was an Army Engineer officer frustrated by the lack of challenging (yet safe) prenatal workouts available online- so I started GlowBodyPT during lunch breaks. I got certified as a Personal Trainer and Prenatal & Postnatal Exercise Specialist, dug into peer-reviewed research, and started testing on myself. I'd come home from work, change out of my army combat uniform, and into workout clothes. Propping up my $200 camera on a stack of index cards on my kitchen counter, I recorded my quick, but intense, pregnancy routines in case there were a few like-minded women somewhere in the world who also wanted more out of their pregnancy fitness. Today there are more than 100,000 of you fierce women across YouTube + Instagram.
I got so many requests for a postpartum program to repair the abdominal wall and get back into shape after baby arrives, that is when the 12 Week Post Pregnancy Plan development process started. I began with a trial group of 50 women (vaginal, c-section, first baby-sixth baby) and collected their feedback, charted progress data, and assessed what exercises are the most effective. I discovered over 70% of women still have Diastasis Recti by the time they get the all-clear to exercise, and most aren't even checked for it at their postpartum check up. Doing the wrong exercises with Diastasis Recti will only make the postpartum stomach worse. The integrity and functionality of the core is key for women. So I tweaked the plan to make it 100% c-section safe and Diastasis Recti healing before it was ever released for sale to the public. I live and breathe prenatal and postnatal fitness and would never do anything else first after having babies than my 12 Week Post Pregnancy Plan.
Each of my plans: the 12 Week Post Pregnancy Plan, the 10 Minute Plan (same time commitment as the 12 Week Post Pregnancy Plan), and Lean Fast Strong Capable Plan were all created because I needed them for myself as a busy mom while running glowbodypt and often the home solo during deployments. These are the exact plans I follow and have full confidence you will love them and what they do for you and your body, too!
