To commemorate Women’s History Month for 2021, we want to highlight the incredible and inspiring women that make NordicTrack, powered by iFit® what it is. As women have made, and continue to make, victorious leaps in a personal and professional realm, we are motivated to shine our spotlight on some of the talented and beautiful women that we have the privilege of knowing.
Raised in Utah County, Ashley has always loved long-distance running. Inspired by her dad, an avid marathon runner, she began joining him on his shorter runs at eight years old. Today, she is an AFAA Certified Personal Fitness Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor and is also certified in kickboxing, Zumba, and cycling. As an Ironman athlete, the St. George, Utah resident is a self-proclaimed cardio junkie, and she never turns down a good HIIT workout. Some of her favorite things to do are hike and paddle board.
Get a glimpse below as Ashley takes it a step further and opens up about a personal struggle of hers and is driven to help even just one person with overcoming their own battle. We’re overwhelmed by the raw emotion and the love Ashley brings to our screens in this:

In addition to her captivating way of making us want to be vulnerable with ourselves, she also knows how to crank up the motivation for when we need it the most:
For years, Hannah has worked on her craft as a coach and CrossFit® athlete. In 2014, she began competing at an elite level, becoming one of the Top 100 Fittest Women in the Southeast Region of the U.S. Shortly after, she started PumpFit Club––a boutique, upscale facility that hosts group sessions with a unique approach to HIIT training. That experience, combined with her knowledge in free-weight training and olympic lifting, is what makes Hannah one of the top fitness leaders today. You can expect her workouts to be a little wild, sometimes inappropriate, and always a good sweat.
With an athlete such as Hannah, there are no boundaries. Watch below as she pushes her own limits to bring awareness to an important cause that is close and dear to her heart.

Our iFit women members continuously show consistency, willpower, and dedication to their health and fitness. They have chosen us to be a part of their journey to their best self, and we are so grateful to be able to help them achieve their goals.
Meet Nnenna. She has come to terms with understanding that she can’t do it all, as many of us can relate. She made a life-changing decision with her treadmill as her portal to her new self. See her story here: Success Story: Nnenna On Her Commercial X22i Treadmill.
Meet Lisette. She describes how her treadmill has not only helped her overcome challenges with her weight but with all other areas in her life as well. See her story here: Success Story: Lisette On Her X22i Incline Treadmill.
