When Ashley became pregnant with her first child health and fitness took on a whole new meaning. Eating well and getting exercise was no longer about losing weight or looking a certain way - it was about being healthy for herself and her baby.
She joined our Prenatal Fitness class in 2013 and hasn't looked back since. Ashley was a participant throughout her first two prenatal and postnatal journeys, and became an instructor after deciding not to go back to her "9 to 5" in the spring of 2017. Her growing list of certifications include Sport Conditioning, Pre and Postnatal Fitness, AquaFitness and Group Cycle.
She loves the community of like-minded women and parents and when asked if she likes her job, she will quickly answer "yes, because I never feel like I'm going to work!" Her main goals are for her participants to feel comfortable in class and to challenge themselves safely.
When she isn't teaching you can find her busy with her three kids. Ashley's favourite family activities include bike rides and hanging out at The Forks.

Alisa attended her first yoga class when she was 20 and fell in love, but it wasn’t until suffering a major back injury years later that she realized yoga was going to become a much bigger part of her life. It was a major component of her rehabilitation for her body and mind, and she knew she wanted to share her practice with others.
Alisa completed her 300-hour Yoga Teacher training at Source Yoga in Winnipeg in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin and soon found her passion with Pre/Postnatal Yoga, continuing her education with the Empowerment Project, and obtaining her Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist Certification.
Since the birth of her children Alisa has continued her studies with several trainings including Vinyasa Immersion in Skillful Sequencing at Shala Yoga in Squamish BC, various prenatal fitness and childbirth education courses, kids yoga certification and advanced teacher training programs. Alisa teaches other classes including kids yoga in schools, and her Tiny Yogis program for preschool age children. Alisa also offers Karma classes throughout the year through her fundraising initiative Healing Minds, Healing Bodies to raise money for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
When not on her mat Alisa can be found spending time in nature, playing drums, and baking. She lives with her husband, two sons Jack and Henry and their three dogs.
Her goal with her pre/postnatal classes is to empower women to prepare their body, mind, and breath for labour, delivery and parenting, while helping them connect with their babies.

Kelly got certified as a personal trainer through ACE in 2019 and completed her Manitoba Fitness Council Pilates certification in 2021.
Her quest to get people moving has re-united her with Fit Together after she took the classes as a participant back when her kids were babies. Kelly says “Exercise has always brought me closer to myself and grounded me. Through the good and the bad, our bodies are the only place we have to live. I feel alive when I know I’m helping others get to that place for themselves too. It’s pretty amazing to have come full circle now teaching with this team and seeing women gain their confidence and work towards stronger versions of themselves”.
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys Muay Thai boxing, running, biking with her kids, and swimming which she only learned to do at 35 years old. She earned her first trifecta from a Spartan race she did in Thailand and hopes to do another one in Canada one day.
Kelly believes the curveballs that go along with pregnancy, motherhood and parenting teach you that you can get through anything …women are amazing. Her friendly and fun-loving style makes her classes a joy to attend. Kelly is happy to be on this journey with you!
