Tricia

Specializations

AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) Certified

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

Tricia worked directly with Aaron Maddes' to obtain her AIS Certification and specializes in working with the elderly, stroke patients, and those with limited mobility and pain.  She suffers from a physical condition herself which makes her especially empathetic to those with any physical limitations.

SCW Group Fitness Certified
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

Ashley has a passion and love for fitness and teaching. She enjoys helping people create, begin, and reach their fitness goals. 

Ashley began her journey to a healthier life style at 193lbs in January of 2013 with little knowledge of fitness or how to properly workout. She spent hours doing cardio and working out but didn’t see the results she wanted. She took Teresa’s class for the first time in January of 2015 and fell in love with the classes and format. Through the support of Teresa, her friends, and her family, she became a group fitness instructor through SCW. She has since been teaching classes at T-Fit every week. She loves teaching and looks forward to every class. She also completed her NASM Personal Training certification in 2018 and is currently accepting new clients for evenings and weekends.
