Ashlee Downie – www.ashleemccartney.com
For those of you who don’t know me, I am a personal trainer, wellness coach, and pug mum based in Berkshire.
Health, fitness and community are my passions. By following these passions, I have helped hundreds of clients both online and face to face discover their happiest and healthiest lives.
I have been a fitness professional for over 5 years, connecting with clients through group exercise and on a 1-1 basis.
My journey into wellness began at the age of 25 when I became a carer to my lovely mumma, who sadly was diagnosed with a very rare and fast-acting form of dementia. It was a very painful and emotional time in my life. At a time when exercise became my therapy, it saved me in so many ways. It went from being something that I did for aesthetics or to punish myself for something I ate, to something that soothed my soul in times of struggle and helped quiet my mind in the height of anxiety. I learned that prioritising my own well-being, meant that I could give more to the people I love.
Now, I dedicate my life to teaching people how to love themselves, from the inside out because it’s very hard to take care of a body that you don’t love.
Ashlee is a fantastic member of the team, she brings constant energy and life lessons to every retreat.

Debbie Fleming – www.attitudefitness.guru
Hi, I’m Debbie Fleming and I have been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 20 years. My fitness career began with me teaching aerobics in my local leisure centre and since then I’ve gone on to train in lots of different exercise disciplines from boxing to Ballet Barre and most things In-between!
Growing up I wasn’t naturally athletic, no hand-eye coordination for ball sports and not enough speed for athletics but in one PE class I realised I could run for quite some time! It took me until my early 20s to develop a passion for fitness and so after seeing a poster at a gym I was attending I decided to run the London Marathon. Before I had even completed my first Marathon I had signed up for the New York one….. I know….. lol! A few more Marathons and a baby later I hung up my long-distance shoes and decided to qualify as an instructor and personal trainer.
My passion is functional fitness so Pilates, Yoga and HIIT are my favourite workouts to instruct. I love to see people achieve their goals and I’m really looking forward to helping you achieve yours.
