My mission is to serve the exercise science community. As a muscle performance expert, specifically within the area of resistance training, I have spent the past 20 years in gyms, athletic training centers, and classrooms, and loved every single minute of it!

I hold a PhD in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Austin and an MS in Exercise Science from Florida State University. My career started in athletics training centers and sparked my earliest interest in timing and muscle performance and later served as the original idea for the book Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance (Human Kinetics, 2020).

Right now, timing, specifically muscle clocks, is the most exciting topic in muscle performance. I am so excited to have the chance to share groundbreaking research on the discovery of muscle clocks and what they mean to muscle performance with you all!

Passionate about muscle physiology and resistance training programming, my goal is to provide you, the professional vested in muscle performance, with the most up-to-date, research supported muscle performance content and training programs. To achieve that goal I develop continuing education webinars, courses and programs that are approved by National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA), American Council on Exercise (ACE), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa).

Through the book, custom live events online continuing education courses, and articles, muscle physiology and resistance training methods are my passion and I want to share that with you. I would love to hear from you. Please contact me directly at amyashmorephd@gmail.com.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Amy Ashmore as she conceptualized and launched two of her most recent courses. She has a keen understanding of the changing needs of fitness professionals and provides engaging and applicable material to address those needs. Amy is an excellent educator and content collaborator. Her professionalism and clear passion for what she does is evident in every conversation and communication. I look forward to working together on future projects.”
