About Me

I have spent my life in gyms and athletic training centers. With over 30 years of industry and academic sports sciences experience, I now devote my time to sports and fitness programming.

Why programming? It is where I can help others and best support the work of trainers. Over the years I learned that it is the intricate relationship between programming variables that excite me. I love coming up with programming solutions to optimize performance outcomes. Programming is in the details and that is what I love!

Lecturing and speaking since 1993,  I have delivered over 250 presentations to academia and industry. With dozens of magazine and blog publications and three books reaching a global audience of over 500,000 people in 80 plus countries, I am honored to touch people through sports and fitness.

I live in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada with my son, Aiden and our dog, Jimbug.

What Others Are Saying

“I have been privileged to have a professional association with Dr. Ashmore for the past 8 years, during which time she has impressed me with her unique ability to effectively bridge the gap between the scientist and the practitioner.”

Cedric X. Bryant, PhD, Chief Science Officer, American Council on Exercise

“Amy Ashmore is a superb educator, whose enthusiasm for her subject matter bubbles over and reaches everyone in a room. Amy has been writing and presenting for IDEA since 2002. She can get a fitness professional audience more engaged in the topics of biomechanics and physics than you could ever dream possible! She is an intelligent professional and creative teacher, as well as a generous and delightful human being.”
