You may have noticed there is a new face around the gym both working out and shadowing our coaches. Ashley Dail is Interning at Crossfit Hydro this fall. Ashley is a senior at UNO majoring in Physical Education with a specialization in Exercise Science. She will be working out with everyone in our community along with observing and helping with On-Ramp and regular classes. She will also be assisting with administration and maintenance tasks around the gym.
Here is a little background Ashley provided about herself:
“I am eager to learn more about strentgh and conditioning coaching and personal training. I am currently working on obtaining my CSCS Certification (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) and ACSM EP-C (American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist). After graduation I plan on attending Physical Therapist Assistant school while working a job in the strength and conditioning field. Before college I was on Bellevue West’s swim and volleyball team. Currently, I am a Physical Therapy Technician at Community Rehab Physical Therapy, Head Lifeguard/Swim Instructor at the Bellevue Lied Activity Center, and Swim Coach for the Bellevue Swim Club. Physical fitness and health has always been apart of my life, I love the energy, the social aspect, and feeling of accomplishment it gives you. I got into this field of study because I want to make a change, motivate, and help others like previous people have done for me and educate people on the importance of a healthy lifestyle. When I’m not working or in school I love to hang out with friends and family, enjoy some delicious ice cream, watch funny Corgi YouTube videos, and binge watch TV shows on Netflix!”
It is interesting to note that both Head Coach Justin and Coach Joe have the CSCS certification that Ashley is pursing. This is considered one of the gold standard certifications in the Strength and Conditioning Field. Please welcome Ashley to the Hydro Community.
