Ash Iovino – Ash FitMom

Our Fitness Instructor

(Fit)mom of 3, runner, health & fitness fanatic – these are just a few ways to describe Ash Iovino, the owner of FitMom, a personal training business which specialises in pre & postnatal fitness. When Ash fell pregnant with her first born, she was adamant to remain fit and active throughout her pregnancy. She started researching and found the information available to be overwhelming and often contradictory. This inspired her to study Personal Training and to specialise in pre & postnatal fitness. She then opened FitMom in 2015 and subsequently started her own Women’s Wellness Retreats.
