What Is FitMom?
Most commonly referred to as “Ash FitMom” the clue is in my name! I am a fitness fanatic, mother-of-3 that started my business, FitMom, 4.5 years ago when I wanted to share my love of exercise with other women, but more importantly, I wanted to show them how exercise truly has the ability to positively change your life.
FitMom specialises in training, guiding, supporting, empowering and transforming the lives of women. I started in 2015 as a “mobile personal trainer.” Since then, I have employed another trainer, Lauren Pienaar, and this is what we get up to:
- Personal training (private & group sessions)
- Online workout & eating programmes
- I have started a running group in the Southern Suburbs of CT called Fit & Fast. It is by invite only for serious runners. We currently have 14 members.
- We host pop-up running/bootcamp events in Jo’burg & Cape Town.
- We host Women’s Wellness Retreat Weekends (both in Jo’burg & CT)

"I have been training with Ash for 10 months and have loved our sessions. Each one is different and I am pushed every time to move out of my comfort zone. I'm a runner and Ashleigh's running experience has really inspired and motivated me to train harder. In return, I have reached many running time and mileage goals that I never believed possible! I am about to run my first two oceans ultra marathon and can't wait. As a mom, she truly embodies her brand as a 'fit mom' and I enjoy our chats about our kids as we share the highs and lows of parenthood."
Belinda Mountain, mom of Rachel and Ben.
"I lost 8kg while training with Ash but it was the increase in my confidence, the renewed sense of self and a new appreciation for exercise that meant the most to me. I can honestly say that I feel better in my body now at nearly 40 than I ever did in my 20s. And I couldn't have done that without her."
Farzana Kajee, mom of Adam
"As a physiotherapist and mom, health and fitness has always been a core focus in my life. Joining FitMom has helped elevate that passion to a new level. A supervised program has helped me not only achieve my weight goals but also improve my energy levels, confidence and overall wellbeing. Ash is sure to work you as hard as possible towards achieving your personal goals. I can personally attest to achieving mine in just 3 months! Tailored to your needs, the workouts are both challenging and fun. There is nothing like feeling the strength of your own body to beat away life stresses. With Ash’s combined passion & knowledge of women's health and fitness you couldn't be in more capable hands."
Monique O’Carroll, mom of Ava, Viv and Ollie
"Training with Ash is a totally addictive experience - once you start you won’t want to stop!! Be prepared to be inspired and motivated by her passion and dedication - she lives and breathes health and fitness and this permeates every session. Her holistic approach has transformed my perspective on exercise - it was actually something I looked forward to and enjoyed. Each session with Ash is thoughtfully and creatively crafted to make sure you achieve the most from your time with her. The workouts are challenging but also fun and enjoyable. She pushes you beyond your expectations and the results speak for themselves - I have never been stronger or fitter."
"My journey with Ash has far exceeded my expectations. Ash created a safe environment for me to highlight the specific areas I wanted to focus on and what I wanted to achieve. She designs and tailors unique full body workouts that are aligned to my goals. Ash is incredibly passionate about fitness and this is evident in the enthusiasm and energy that she brings to every session. She is the ultimate motivator and consistently encourages me to push myself to the next level. I have noticed a drastic improvement in my core strength and overall muscle tone in less than a month. Ash has had a remarkable impact on my overall wellbeing and I can’t imagine not having her a part of my weekly routine!"
