For the month of May, we have chosen one of the most kindest, hard working, super moms we know….Ashley Smyth! She has been a CrossFit Rolesville athlete for over a year now and she continues to improve each day. Ashley has very few weaknesses when it comes to CrossFit, but she is constantly listening, learning, and growing each class. She is a very competitive athlete as well. But never fails to cheer for everyone around her. She is dedicated, not only to here 5:30am crew (and the occasional 9am’ers!), but to her awesome family as well. Her two extremely adorable daughters, Piper and Penny, make an appearance every so often and it’s always a treat for anyone in the gym! And though we don’t see Josh (her very supportive and loving husband) as much as we would like, we still love him too! 😉 We are very proud to have Ashley and her family apart of our CFR family!

Age: 30

Occupation: Mom/work from home

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville?

The Open.

How did you find CFR? Why do you train?

I would drive past CFR all the time and decided one day I wanted to do more than run and gave it a try. I train to feel strong, stay healthy, and push me from my comfort zone.

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?

So many…I love seeing others hit PR’s! Knowing we all want each other to do their best and get stronger is so fun!

What is your daily motivation to workout?

My family. Josh, Piper and Penelope. My 5:30 ladies…always making sure we are all coming 🙂

Favorite and least favorite movements?

I love everything except Snatches

What’s one thing you would tell to a new CrossFitter?

Do it. Stick with it. It’s hard and it’s fun…and it helps when you love the people you work out with (5:30 am and occasional 9) 

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?

Can’t Stop the Feeling from the Trolls soundtrack. Anything I like, Thomas usually changes it.

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know.

I’m pretty competitive.

“What you don’t know about Ashley (from her husband Josh!)…she’s a SUPERSTAR! She works at Majestic, she’s an amazing stay at home mom, she works out every day, and homeschools!”
