We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is that I’m able to be myself. Be U Fitness is all about being the best version of yourself. I’m encouraging women to look past the images they see on social media. Being healthy comes in so many different shapes and sizes. I understand where women are coming from and where they are going because I lived through it myself.

What should our readers know about your business?
I got where I am by overcoming obstacles. Learning that you can’t trust everyone. No matter how bad you want to see the good in everyone sometimes you have to be selfish and choose yourself. There’s people who want to see you fail and you have to trust in yourself enough to know that you are bigger than the challenges you face. My brand tells a story about a girl who was depressed and didn’t like the person she was but once she became happy with the woman she saw in the mirror everything in her life changed.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my shout-out to my mom. A very strong woman who kept me encouraged and motivated. When she left me I thought I would never heal from the pain but the pain is what made me stronger.
