About Perception Fitness

My name is Ashly Dunn and I am Perception Fitness.  I am an NFPT certified personal trainer and health enthusiast.   My goal as a personal trainer is to help you create sustainable diet and exercise habits  for ultimate physical fitness and over-all health, in a fun and comfortable environment at an affordable rate.

I was certified to work professionally as a trainer in July of 2009, but I have been in the world of health and fitness since I was 14 years old.  As a child I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome – a kidney disease.  I was on a large dose of steroids for four years, from the ages of 2- to 6-years old.  Along with  freedom from my disease, the steroids brought a slew of side effects, one being weight gain… a lot of weight gain.  I remember stories of doctors telling my parents that “moon face” was very common among children who took the steroid Prednisone.  Sure enough, I had a moon face.  It and my body were extremely bloated.   I started kindergarten as a fat kid and remained that way ’til I was about 14-years old.  It was not easy.  Kids are cruel and I will leave it at that.

Fortunately, my Mom was no stranger to the gym.  Some of my favorite memories are of sitting on the side lines watching her do aerobics.  As soon as I was old enough she allowed me to join the gym and we would work out together after school and work.  It changed my body, but most importantly it changed my life.  By the time I was 15-years old I had lost the weight and LOVED to exercise.  I turned  thirty-three years old this year (2013)  with 18-years of hard work under my belt to share with you!

My  mission is to make personal training more accessible, in part,  through  affordable rates and a comfortable environment.

Let me help you to harness  the power of your mind to meet your fitness goals, and in turn, change your life.
