Since a young age Ashley Nocera was active and athletic. She started swimming at the age of 4 and eventually began doing it competitively. After 10 years of competitive swimming, Ashley turned her focus onto the fitness world, but the change of passion did not come without its criticisms.

“My new lifestyle seemed silly to them. But once I focused on myself and learned to ignore the negativity around me, I was able to continue my fitness journey with confidence.”

But Ashley was not deterred and by the age of 19 she won her first ever fitness competition and earned her Pro Card. Now she is 22 and looking as lean and fit as ever. Check out her weekly routine and see what you might need to add to your next gym day.
