BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT // Exercise & Fitness
be u fitness
Be U Fitness is a fitness training studio established in February of 2021. Owner and operator Ashley Johnson is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. At 300 pounds and battling depression, she lost 100 pounds naturally from exercise and healthy eating. From there, she created a safe space for others to learn to transform their minds and bodies to live longer, healthier lives. Her goal is to assist women in becoming healthier and stronger versions of themselves by understanding that fitness has no particular shape, color, or size.
Be U Fitness offers personal training and small group training mixed with fun and fitness. Its hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 5 a.m.-8 p.m. They also offer workout guides that can be done at home, which can be found at www.Be-UFitness.myshopify.com, www.BeUFitnes.net, or join us in person.
