Ashley Johns Fitness 360: Reversal Of Fortune

It seems we are only dealt one fortune in life. We get it, live it, deal with it and call it a wrap. Ashley Johns refused to accept this. She chose to reverse her fortune.

Change often comes as a result from a dramatic life event. Sometimes it's a car accident, a divorce, a doctor's visit or an insult shot across a banquet hall. But, the most common impetus for a complete body transformation is an internal drama cast by a glance in the mirror with a critical eye. Ashley Johns caught her own gaze on New Year's Day, 2009.

In less than a year, Ashley ditched 40 pounds, competed in a figure competition, ran a 5k, quit her job as a banker and became a personal trainer. Her new body helped her take a new tack on life. Her transformation changed her on deep, fundamental levels, beyond image and into the self. See where she's headed now.

In the two years since the impetus of her fortune reversal, Ashley forged her way to become a professional in the fitness industry.
