What Ashley's Clients Say:

Brandon Storteboom, Student

Ashley Leong is a phenomenal trainer! She is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, motivating and will strive to get you the results you desire.

I was unsure about how to properly take my first step towards a healthier lifestyle but Ashley made setting a routine for nutrition and exercise easy to follow and has yielded great results so far! I highly recommend Body by Design to anyone looking for professional assistance for fast results!

Shannon Potts, New Mother

Ashley is not only the best trainer that I’ve EVER had, she’s also one of the most inspiring people that I’ve come across in my 37 years of being alive. And I don’t say this lightly. I went to Ashley tired, overweight, sad and hating my post baby body. When we met for our initial consultation, I could tell, almost within the first few minutes, that she could see ME and knew how to help me transform. By following her nutrition plan, I’ve never felt better internally. I literally went from feeling gross and sluggish to happy and full of energy. My skin has also improved! But what I most impressed with are the workouts. They are designed PERFECTLY for me. We change it up when she sees fit, and all exercises are designed for my home workouts. If I have any questions, she’s available by text and email, too! So now, 4.5 months later, I’ve lost 29 inches, 30 lbs, and I have muscle tone popping all over my body. Trust me when I say that Ashley is worth every penny.

Jonathan Christian from We Make Stuff Happen

I have had the sad pleasure of having had three, no-fault, rear-end, whiplash injuries. I ended up with major neck surgery. Having had traditional post-op physio and massage therapy I was still struggling with so many things.

I met Ashley at a MYM Success training event. I was instantly impacted by her firm but friendly approach to fitness and nutrician. We met to discuss my medical history and personal fitness goals. By the end of our discovery session I was convinced! I finally have my own Personal Fitness Trainer!

Ashley has already helped fix injuries that were decades old. I have Titanium implants in my neck and a host of other legacy injuries. Within 6 weeks I’m pain free after a decade of pain! She’s helped me discover my core strength. I’m already down 8lbs and two belt notches.

I’ve committed to a 12 month program because I know I can’t do this alone. There is no greater investment I can make than in my own health and wellness.

Richelle Green, Binibining (Miss) Philipinas of the World 2009

“I hired Ashley because I really needed to get in shape and toned for a pageant that was a couple months from when we first contacted her. I loved that I was so comfortable with her during our workouts (she’s one of the nicest and most genuine people I’ve ever met) and managed to accommodate me, despite my busy schedule being a student. Ashley is an amazing trainer! She customized my workout to really concentrate on the areas that I specifically wanted changed about my body, giving me simple exercises that I couldn’t injure myself doing. After only about 2 months… it actually all worked! I won my pageant as Binibining (Miss) Pilipinas of the World 2009. Not only did I look better, but I felt great – all thanks to her!”


Gemma S, Make Up Artist

Such a great team! Inspiring, passionate and they really care about you and your bodies needs. I would recommend Ashley any day!

Julia H, Scientist

“I first started training with Ashley back in 2003. I had managed to gain about 60 pounds in the space of a year and was experiencing knee and back pain, as well as poor posture. I received a personalized weight training program to address my specific needs, as well as a cardio regimen and nutrition counselling. It didn’t take long before I lost the weight, significantly improved my posture, and the back and knee pain became practically non-existent. After an unrelated knee injury, Ashley designed a rehabilitation program and now my knees feel more stable and pain-free than they have in decades. Most recently, I trained with Ashley throughout my pregnancy. She was very knowledgeable regarding prenatal fitness and I went through my entire pregnancy with no backaches, joint pain, or “duck waddling” posture. Four weeks after the birth I was cleared by my doctor to begin seeing Ashley again. It didn’t take long for my abdominals and core to bounce back, even after having a caesarean section.

I have run the gamut with Ashley, from weight loss and toning, through knee surgery, and most recently pregnancy. Ashley is a perfect fit for me: she pushes without being pushy; she’s fun and friendly; and she really wants you to attain your fitness goals. I would highly recommend her to absolutely anyone, from a beginner to a star athlete!”

Laurie Ashley, Marketing Director

“When I first met Ashley I presented her with a problem..ME! I spent 4 hours a day in a car driving stick shift, 8 hours a day sitting in front of a computer, and I was in the beginning of the second trimester of my first pregnancy.

Being someone who likes to work out alone, I was very cautious of using a personal trainer. Ashley put any fears I had to rest right away. I began to have the most fun and effective workouts that I had in years. I remember at the beginning doing a posture analysis and thinking what is this going to do, but the tailored work out that followed has in many ways stuck with me for almost three years.

Thank you for helping me with the way that I approach all my workouts! Thank you for helping me realize that I have a posture to consider while carrying on my daily activities and when I work out.”

Michel Watson, Administrative Management

“I originally hired Ashley as my personal trainer to get in shape for my wedding. At that time I didn’t know a thing about working out and definitely did not feel comfortable in a gym. That is no longer the case. I’ve been married now for almost 4 years and to this day, hiring Ashley was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Not only have I made a great friend out of it but I’ve learned so much about my body and my lifestyle. Ashley has gone the extra mile to incorporate what exercises I like to do with what areas of my body I want to work on into a workout program that I never get bored with. There is never a cookie-cutter workout – every six weeks I come home with a brand new workout program specifically geared towards me! It’s this personal aspect of training with Ashley that makes her stand out above the rest.

I look at life and health differently now. I have lost over 20lbs, 10% body fat, and 48.5 inches, but most importantly my blood pressure is back to normal. When I first saw Ashley over 4 years ago, my blood pressure was a concern. Ashley showed me how to lower it naturally through diet and regular exercise.

I recommend Ashley to anyone who is serious about changing their life. Because she did just that for me!”

Parm Gill, Marathon Runner

“I started seeing Ashley first as she was the instructor to the ‘In the Ring’ boxing class that was offered at my local fitness centre. She was motivating in class & knew what she was talking about so I hired her as my personal trainer. I was looking to lose weight & gain muscle mass. She wrote specific programs for me, and told me what was good to eat and what wasn’t. By following her program, I achieved fast results and lost close to 30 lbs within the first couple of months. I enjoyed what Ashley taught me at our training sessions and how comfortable I was with her. She is great & taught me things that I will always remember.”
