MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Your instructor, Ashley Pak, is a Fighting For Me Ambassador in Lexington Kentucky. We initially connected with Ashley to help find her counseling services. After she did the hard work in therapy, she offered to come back as a volunteer. She’s an incredible advocate for survivors of sexual assault.
Ashley Pak, Barre Instructor & Fighting For Me Ambassador
For years, Ashley has found creative ways to combine her passion for helping survivors with her passion for fitness. Thanks to technology, we can now all attend her barre class to benefit survivors of sexual abuse!
Ashley Pak was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. She started barre in 2014 and went on to teach it in 2017. After her first few classes, she fell in love with the technique and started recognizing a quick change in her body and attitude.
“As soon as I started doing barre, I noticed that I was less stressed and I was sleeping so much better. Which has helped me tackle my busy days at work!” During her fitness journey, Ashley was also holding in abuse from the past. Even though fitness was a great outlet to relieve stress, there were still pent-up emotions that could not be fixed in a workout.
Ashley started blogging and was quickly connected to Fighting For Me by a family member. Ashley was immediately connected with a therapist. Ashley has been through therapy on and off and it has helped her live a better life. Outside of fitness, Ashley enjoys spending time with her family, visiting local wineries, and staying active in the community.
