Frequently Asking Questions Q: How do I pick a program? A: I have found that what makes the decision process difficult is often over thinking which program will give the most results.
The short answer: all of them will do what Ashley says they will do. Once you accept that to be true, comb through the examples I have provided and decide which training style appeals to you most. After that, it is up to you to see the whole program through. Q: How soon will I see results? A: Every body is different, but I always caution to stay with a program for at least eight weeks before evaluating if it’s working or not. Most likely if results aren’t as obvious as you hoped, it’s a dietary issue, in which case I recommend keeping a written journal or using an app to track your food intake. Q: What type of diet is Ashley Horner on?
A: Ashley does not count calories or macros, and has said in Facebook Live videos that she eats relatively high fat, low carb, moderate protein. She does indulge in dessert on occasion. Q: Her programs are expensive.
Are they worth it? A: Absolutely. Her programs are detailed and extensive, incorporating the highest intensity to guarantee results (or your money back!). But if price is an issue, check out her free program on Bodybuilding.com called. Q: I have tried Charlie Mike. What program should I do next?
A: If you’re looking for similar style training, I recommend Pipehitter or Valor (Breaking Boundaries if you workout at home). Q: I need something more extensive in the nutrition department. Any recommendations? A: As a matter of fact, yes. After reading and, I have become a big fan of high fat, low carb diets. If low carb isn’t your thing, then I recommend checking out nutritionist Keri Glassman’s (I especially recommend The O2 Diet) and her. Q: Is this a cookie cutter program?
A: These programs are great options for people who don’t want to pay for the customization from a personal trainer. Although they are predesigned, you customize them according to your goals and current fitness level by adjusting weights and scaling if needed.
These programs are perfect for those who don’t know how to create their own training or who work better following a specific workout routine. Q: Does Ashley have any discount codes for repeat customers?
A: As a matter of fact, she [sort of] does! If you’ve purchased one of her trainers (excluding Crux and Sweet Cakes or any new trainers 30 days old or less), you can buy your second (or third or fourth) program at a discounted rate of $60.00. To take advantage of this, you need to send $60 via PayPal, and in the message box include your receipt/product number from your previous purchase (this can be found at the bottom of every page of your program if you’ve misplaced the email). Her team will respond within a few business days with your program.
Q: Where does Ashley Horner get her clothes? A: In 2016 Ashley began a sponsorship with Reebok. You can click to head to the Reebok website. I personally love the quality and look of Reebok apparel and shoes and highly recommend them.

To get Breaking Grounds: Crux – The Core Trainer Like most of us abs seem to be that illusive target in training that no matter how hard we try, we cannot figure or seem to achieve it. Well if Ashley Horner abs aren’t anything to go by, rock solid and after 3 kids, I don’t know what else is. You really couldn’t have a more solid recommendation then one from the creator herself. This trainer won’t only appeal to you because of its aesthetic reasons, but it will also help you with your lifts and movements. It focuses on the foundations, where all dreams are made of. With a steady foundation any goal can be built.
This core trainer is perfectly combined with other trainers in her becoming extra ordinary series.

For these workouts, you need minimal equipment, which allows you the convenience of being able to do them almost anywhere: at home, the gym, the park, or while traveling.

I am a hybrid. The Hybrid trainer is a program that will encompass all styles of training from big staple lifts to isolation exercises, balance, mobility, and speed–we are going to work on them all.
This program will keep your body guessing, wondering what’s going to happen next.

This trainer is called Pinnacle because of that mental goal we should always be chasing.

– Ashley Horner This 14 week trainer is unlike any other. The Pinnacle has you testing your limits and pushing your boundaries through HIIT exercises, bodyweight moves, weight lifting, and yoga. Reach your goals and accomplish exactly what you set out to do. To get Pinnacle: The Monolith Monolith is a high intensity leg trainer to build and sculpt the perfect legs that you’ve wanted.

This training program is a supplement trainer, it’s intended to be used three times a week.
