Me & Ashley @lornajanedallas discussing fitness
Tynee Talks: What
got you into fitness?
Ashley Wade: I’ve
been active since I was a little girl. I always wanted a career that would
allow me to be active. I began teaching dance classes as a Tween and whenever I
was in large groups I was chosen to lead group fitness activities. I’m very
passionate about helping and teaching others. I just love how the body
functions, so I majored in Kinesiology at Michigan State University and my
dream of making fitness into a career came into fruition.
TT: Do you think
it’s a myth that Black women don’t work out?
AW: I absolutely believe
it is a myth! As Black women, we care about our health and image just as much
as any other group. I think the true myth is that people assume fit equates to
skinny and that is definitely false. Fitness is universal and should not be
based on color. Everyone needs good health no matter what.
Ladies of all flavors getting #wadestrong
TT: You’re my
Fitspiration, so who’s your fitspiration?
AW: People who
look up to me are my fitspiration. I know that I can’t “fall off” because they
are looking up to me for guidance and reassurance.
TT: How is it
being a Fitness model?
AW: There’s a lot
of pressure being s fitness model. I am not able to eat what I want all the
time. I have to appear a certain way on camera therefore, I have to be mindful
of the foods I intake so that I don’t look bloated when I am filmed or photographed.
It is my job to physically meet the need of the brand I am representing and
sometimes that can be challenging. However, I love what I do, and all that it
TT: What are your
go-to Power Foods?
AW: Wheat grass,
barley and sarsaparilla. I prefer foods that clean the blood and detoxes the
body. What you eat can affect your mental state so it's important to select food that improves the body's functionality.
TT: What is your
TT: Final Words?
AW: Keep Going! Discipline
is the difference between success or failure.
