The Queen is back!! You are our favorite IFBB Bikini Pro of all time, what made you want to step back on stage?
Wow, I am your favorite? *Blush* I’m very flattered, thank you! Well, I never really announced that I was “done” just needed a lil break that’s all. The pressure at the top can be too much sometimes. I felt overwhelmed and felt the need to be perfect. This wasn’t because of anyone but myself. I am often too hard on myself and my competitive drive can be too much for my own good sometimes. I needed some time off to remember and realize WHY I LOVE THIS SPORT SO MUCH!

You have one of the most beautiful physiques to “ever” step on an IFBB stage, that first show back, did you feel at home, or did you have a few jitters?
Ah, this is such a complimentary and positive interview, I love it!! I definitely had the jitters. I was so shaky and nervous. But ya know, a lot of people associate nervous with negative. I’m nervous all the time, always have been and always probably will be! Being nervous means that I CARE. If I’m nervous it means it’s something that means a lot to me. I try to turn most of those negative jitters into EXCITEMENT!

You’ve been gone for a couple years, there’s a new champ on that Olympia stage, new challenges. Would you say you’re the underdog coming into the Olympia?
I’ve only missed a year at the Olympia (2017) but since then so much has changed! Lots of new faces and the talent pool just keeps growing each year. There are so many amazing and beautiful girls that I will be competing with. A lot of these girls are rookies just like I was when I first won. I would say YES I am one of the many underdogs that will be competing in this year’s Bikini Olympia.

After the Olympia, what’s next for Queen Ashley?
Queen? I like the sound of that lol! Well a day after the Olympia, I will be driving straight back to LA to catch a flight that leaves the following morning to Korea. That’s because I will be competing in the Asian Grand Prix the following weekend! It’s going to be a craaaaazy week I am tellin’ ya. The next show on my radar is the Japan Pro Show in November. I cannot wait for all of these exciting events! I love Asia, and I love Asians. They are just so awesome! It’s going to be a great year.

You’re one of the biggest fit Inspirations for mothers on social media. How did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I have always been into health & fitness, but it wasn’t until I after the birth of my twins that I went all out hardcore in my training. I was on bed rest for 5 months of my pregnancy & it ignited a fire & drive inside me unlike ever before.

I had been paddle boarding all the time and saw the physical benefits. I took it a step further and got certified to teach, I started racing.

Then I got hooked on the Barre’ method I trained to be an instructor, taught classes locally for 3 yrs & now teach privately in my home to a select few. I absolutely love helping others feel better about themselves, providing them with encouraging attainable ways to improve their lifestyle & achieve goals.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model and a mother?
The most challenging part is being disciplined mentally on staying positive that all will be okay someday. Traveling and being a single mother, it’s a constant balancing act.

What are your top 3 favorite exercises?
Stand up paddle boarding at a fast pace for about 45 min. Barre Methodology with weights. And, I have always loved a quick run around my neighborhood for a good cardio, fat burning & mental meditation stress relief.

Do you listen to music while you train? And what’s are your favorite types of music you like working out to?
Listening to music when I train is an absolute must for me. Tunes with a good beat, I’m a lover of good ol’ Trap, hip hip with of course some pop sprinkled in.

Do you ever encounter stereotypes from the way you look?
I encounter stereotypes every time I step outside my home for the way I look. Especially being a mother of 4. Honestly, I still struggle with how people can be so cruel with judging one on appearances without getting to know them first. It’s about mastering the art of not caring what others think, but let’s keep it real. that’s not always easy. I am comfortable & confident in my own skin, proud of who I am as a woman, mother, daughter & friend.

What was your favorite photo shoot location?
Oooh, that’s a tough one, as I have a few, but his past July though I was in Vegas for a week shooting bikinis & fitness lifestyle. This shoot, in particular, I found myself surrounded by genuinely kind, creative people who worked their tooshes off and never complained once that the heat index was over 115 degrees. It was an incredibly positive experience. Other than that Australia 🙂

Jala Sue

What is your current training style, routine or split?
I do Barre method for around 45 minutes 2-3 days a week. On those off on days, I will either go for a 40-minute paddle or fast run for 3 miles. When I watch movies at night, I do crushes & planks.

What are your favorite clean foods?
I love daily healthy smoothies, I am a big Juicer as well for keeping my immune system strong. Meal wise, I’m a fan of steak & chicken, salads. I love fresh veggies.

Jala Sue

Splurge foods?
Chips, I’m a chipaholic! also, sour patch kids 🙂

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Skydiving this past winter & I can’t wait to do it again & again.

What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
The hardest part is finding a workout routine/class you love to do. Then I suggest, making small weekly goals. Don’t let fear paralyze you, let it motivate you. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Set alarms in your phone to remind yourself to workout. Are mornings, afternoons or evenings better for your schedule? Start with 3 days a week, committing to 1hr each time. once you get in the habit of this, I guarantee you will feel so good you will want to add more.

Lastly, find a workout buddy. It’s much more fun to have someone that can hold you accountable & in turn you hold them accountable. It’s a win-win for both people. plus, some of best friends have come from being my workout partners.
