Ashley Fleishman was born and raised in Northwest Indiana, where she danced since she was 3 -- from performing at Disney World through her dance studio to dancing professionally for the Arena Football League’s Chicago Rush Adrenaline Rush Dancers.
She fell in love with group fitness in college while coaching her high school dance team and thought, “wouldn’t that be fun to teach a group fitness class?” A few years later she discovered TurboKick (by Beachbody), became a “front row diva” in class, and decided to take it to the next level and get certified. A month later she started teaching various types of classes from Barre, Strength to TRX and continuously thrived off the high energy of group fitness!
In 2020 when the pandemic hit, she knew she personally (mentally and physically) needed to continue teaching not only for herself, but for the community, so she started going live in a private Facebook group. That opened the doors to creating FIT AF -- a group fitness community with various types of classes (Cardio Kickbox, Barre, Strength and Stretch) and is excited to share her passion with the Dance on Broadway community!
